That quickly changed however, and now anyone without a PS Plus membership is left isolated from online multiplayer games, save for the select few times a year that PlayStation hosts a weekend of free online multiplayer, as they will be at the end of this month between June 24-25.
If you’re a PS5 or PS4 owner not paying for a PS Plus subscription, then you’ll be able to jump online beginning 12:01am local time on June 24, and you’ll be promptly kicked off your online game of choice at 11:59pm on June 25 local time.
Of course being able to play games online isn’t the only reason to subscribe to PS Plus, with a minimum of three games you can add to your library each month, and that’s just on the base level subscription.
Still, it’s telling that not everyone with a PlayStation console subscribes to the service – if all you’re looking forward to playing are the big, single-player, narrative focused first-party games from PlayStation Studios, then its understandable to avoid shelling out an extra annual payment.
