How does playstation plus work on the ps4?


It was my understanding that you needed playstation plus to play anything online on the ps4. currently I don’t have playstation plus nor have i done anything that could grant it to me. thing is, I recently downloaded the destiny demo trial and was playing it, and saw other players online, which meant i WAS playing online with people.

so my question is,

1. how does playstation plus for the ps4 and internet play actually work?

2. was it only letting me online because i was playing the demo version, and would destiny stop allowing me to play if I bought the hard copy full version?

3. is plus only required for certain games/features? for example, you need it to play COD multiplayer but not to play some obscure, lesser known japanese game’s multiplayer?

  1. 1) You buy the subscription and it lets you play online for multiplayer games and gives you discounts and monthly free games.

    2) It could be because of the 5 day free extension due to the attack over Christmas if you had PS+ before. If not, then it could be due to the free trial as free-to-play games don’t require PS+.

    3) No, it’s required for ALL multiplayer games that aren’t free-to-play (such as DCUO).
