Sony’s recent announcement about PlayStation Plus is a reminder to console fans that Microsoft isn’t the only company working round the clock to improve gamers’ experience online. While a part of the PlayStation community has always been wary about having a PS Plus membership, Sony has decided to change that to the people living in EU.
A recent post on the PlayStation Blog has confirmed that gamers will be able to access PS4 online multiplayer for free via PlayStation Plus. The free period will begin this Friday, June 24, at 10:00 BST and last till June 27, 10:00 BST. The free trail is only available in the EU.
Fans can rest assured the free trail applies to all game titles, even recent releases like DOOM, Uncharted 4 and Pro Evolution Soccer, for three days at no cost.
As pointed out by VG 24/7, it’s obvious that the membership trial is a promotional campaign for Sony to convince console users to subscribe. From October, console users will be on a purchasing spree till the year’s end with Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (known for its multiplayer features).
In other news, Sony has released the latest firmware update 3.55 for the PlayStation 4 yesterday. However, the patch note indicates that the “system software update improves the quality of the system performance.”
The update requires users to download a 286.7MB file and install the firmware. Perhaps the update will also support the upcoming online multiplayer brawl.
