Free PlayStation online multiplayer weekend means no membership is required to play against other gamers around the world. On the PlayStation Twitter account, Sony announced that the free online weekend would begin at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, December 18, and finish at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, December 19. Playing on PS5 and PS4 with complimentary multiplayer access does not entitle you to any of this month’s freebie PS Plus titles, so you’ll have to bring your own.
The Tweed said:
“Dive into the online multiplayer modes of your favorite PS4 and PS5 games without a PlayStation Plus membership during our Online Multiplayer Weekend from Dec 18 @ 12:01AM to Dec 19 11:59PM” (local time)

PS Plus is a paid membership service from PlayStation that allows users access to online multiplayer titles, unique discounts from the Ps Store, 100 GB of online storage for gameplay saves, and additional content such as cosmetics and in-game goodies for free-to-play titles like Fortnite.
The Call of Duty: Vanguard story and free-to-play Call of Duty: Warzone may now be played in a competitive multiplayer setting if you haven’t already done so. You might also play Stardew Valley co-op to get a fresh perspective on your old farm.
According to recent rumors, Sony is planning to combine PS Plus and PlayStation Now into a new service dubbed Spartacus, that would compete directly with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on price and convenience levels. If that’s true, we might not even have to wait long to discover what else Sony has in store for its online services.
A method for detecting “disruptive behavior” in online multiplayer games has been proposed in a patent application filed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. This data may be linked back to a certain player or playing area. In May of this year, a patent application called “Methods and systems for addressing disruptive behavior inside multiplayer video games” was posted on the World Intellectual Property Organization website.
According to the patent, a user’s behavior may be profiled based on data gleaned from many games. This data would reveal how frequently and for what reasons they’ve been brought to our attention.
