PS4 multiplayer free to all this weekend

Sony is offering free PS4 multiplayer to all gamers this weekend, rather than locking it behind a PlayStation Plus membership.
 
As part of the PlayStation Plus multiplayer open weekend, anyone with a PS4 can participate in online multiplayer without spending a penny.
 
Usually you need a PlayStation Plus subscription in order to access the online multiplayer components of your PS4 games. But this weekend, you can get it all for free.
