Ghost of Tsushima will also require a PSN account on PC for Legends mode

Ghost of Tsushima is still available to pre-purchase on Steam in the Philippines, for now at least.

ONE Store Beta Now Available

Ghost of Tsushima is coming to PC next week, but players will need a PSN account to access the game’s Legends mode and the PlayStation overlay.

A few days ago, Sucker Punch Productions clarified on X/Twitter (via Kotaku) the game’s PSN account requirements in response to a fan cancelling their pre-order due to the PlayStation account linking requirement.

For Ghost of Tsushima on PC, a PlayStation account won’t be a requirement to play the singleplayer campaign, though players will need to link their PSN account to play the Legends online multiplayer mode and to use the PlayStation overlay.

It’s not clear what this will mean for players living in regions like the Philippines where PSN isn’t officially supported. There’s a possibility that players in non-supported regions can play Legends mode with their PSN accounts that are set in other regions. Of course, there’s also a chance that the multiplayer mode will be locked out entirely in these regions.

This has not gotten as much attention as Helldivers 2’s PSN account fiasco so far given that Ghost of Tsushima is still primarily a singleplayer experience.

Now though, the game is no longer available to pre-purchase on Steam in the Philippines and other unsupported regions on PSN.

Ghost of Tsushima will be released on PC on May 16, 2024.
