God of War Ragnarok and Dawn on PC require a PSN account

May 31, 2024 by No Comments


During its PlayStation State of Play on May 30, Sony confirmed that God of War Ragnarok and One Till Dawn will launch on PC later this year. While this is good news for those waiting to check out games for the first time, Sony confirmed that Two Games are essential PSN account to play.

With the PSN account requirement, Sony cuts off many areas that have access to Steam for their PC gaming but have not created a PSN account.

The issue of requiring a PSN account to play games on Steam has been a hot topic for a while now, but Steam caught on (no pun intended) when Sony tried to enforce the requirement on Helldivers 2 players months after the game’s release. That decision, ultimately reversed, took the game away from dozens of regions and thousands of players.

While it’s not unheard of for companies like Sony and Xbox to require accounts from their ecosystem to play their games on PC, it can cause confusion from players. This is especially true when games like Until Dawn and God of War Ragnarok are single-player-only titles.

For comparison, Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, which launched on PC on May 16, does not require a PSN account to play the single-player mode. This is only required if you want to play Game Legends multiplayer mode.


What do you think PSN account is required to play God of War Ragnarok and Dawn on PC? What about the idea that console accounts are generally required to play certain games on PC?
