Sony is lifting its PlayStation Plus requirement for online multiplayer access on PlayStation 4 this weekend. This means online multiplayer will be free for all PS4 players from Friday, December 11th at 12:01AM PT to Sunday, December 13th at 11:59PM PT. Playing online usually requires a PlayStation Plus subscription, which costs $10 monthly, $18 for a three-month bundle or $50 for an entire year. A Plus membership also guarantees at least two free games and a lineup of discounts every month.

Star Wars: Battlefront is the latest blockbuster game to hit consoles and it happens to be a multiplayer-only experience. This weekend of free multiplayer allows Star Wars fans to try out the new game -- and, if Sony's marketing plan works out, buy a few months of PlayStation Plus afterward.
