The free play weekend starts this Friday, February 19, at 12:01 AM PST, and ends on Sunday, February 21, at 11:59 PM PST.

Sony specifically called out Street Fighter V (a PS4 console exclusive) and Call of Duty: Black Ops III in its announcement today. Black Ops III's Awakening expansion arrived earlier this month on PS4 and will be exclusive to that platform until it's released on Xbox One and PC in March.
