Latest PlayStation Network (PSN) Free Weekend Details (June 2024 Update)

To play online multiplayer game modes for PlayStation consoles, you normally have to pay for a PlayStation Plus membership for 1, 3 or 12 months. However, a couple of times a year, Sony are offering “free weekends”, where you can play online for free, without even needing any extra memberships.

This means online multiplayer modes are unlocked for all games, and you enter and play in lobbies even if you don’t have an active PlayStation Plus membership.

In this post, we’re just going to list all these free weekends as they come up, so you know right away when you can get a free weekend on the PS Plus service, to try out online multiplayer for free.

Free PSN Weekend – 22-23rd June 2024

After a longer than normal wait since their last free weekend, PlayStation are offering another free weekend of play coming up.

The latest free PlayStation network weekend runs from 00:01 local time Saturday 22nd June 2024 to 23:59 local time on Sunday 23rd June local time. During this time, you can play online on PSN totally free without needing a PlayStation Plus membership.

This free weekend runs from local time wherever you are, so some players will get access to this a bit earlier in real time than others. But once it’s live in your time zone, you can play online multiplayer for all your games for free all weekend, without needing a PS Plus subscription

Enjoy!

Free PSN Weekend – 17-18th February 2024

The latest free PlayStation network weekend runs from 00:01 local time Saturday 17th February 2024 to 23:59 local time on Sunday 18th February local time. During this time, you can play online on PSN totally free without needing a PlayStation Plus membership.

In other words, you get a free weekend trial of the online multiplayer PS Plus that you normally have to pay for, during this coming weekend Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th February. Just log in to your PlayStation console and you can play online for free even if you’re not a PS Plus member.

Note that it runs for you from your own individual time zones. So it’s from one minute past midnight on Saturday morning (your time), until one minute to midnight Sunday night (your time).

Free PSN Weekend – 9-10th December 2023

Following on from their last offering in September, PlayStation are offering another free “Season of Play” over the weekend of 9th to 10th December 2023. This means PS4/PS5 users can play online multiplayer for free over this weekend, without needing a PS Plus membership.

The free weekend runs from 00:01 Saturday 9th December to 23:59 Sunday 10th December, in local time, wherever the PlayStation Network is available. Therefore load up your console between these times in your locale, and online multiplayer for games should be totally free.

Free PSN Weekend – 16-17th September 2023

PlayStation are offering a free weekend on PS Plus online multiplayer from Saturday 16th – Sunday 17th September 2023. 

This means anyone with a PlayStation console and decent internet connection can play the online modes for any and all games they have, free of change and without needing to purchase a PS Plus subscription, for this weekend. They offered one earlier this year in June, and now they’re doing another one in September.

The free weekend runs from 00:01 Saturday 16th to 23:59 Sunday 17th and is rolling in terms of time zone, so as soon as you’re in that window in your country, the free weekend starts.

These free weekends are a great way to test out online multiplayer modes you may not have tried out yet, or just to mix things up and enjoy some online lobbies if you’ve been playing offline for a while.

Enjoy!
