The Ghost of Tsushima multiplayer mode on PC requires a PSN account, but the single-player story does not.

Ghost of Tsushima, the hit 2020 PlayStation-exclusive samurai game, will ride to PC on May 16, and ahead of the game’s launch there, developer Sucker Punch Productions has revealed that players won’t need a PlayStation Network account to play through the game’s single-player. Story mode as reported Video Games Chronicle. However, a PSN account is required to play through Ghost of Tsushima’s multiplayer Legends mode, or if you want to use the new PlayStation PC overlay to get trophies and more.

This follows last week’s news when PlayStation announced (and later backtracked) that Helldivers 2 players would soon need to link a PSN account to their Steam account, leading to widespread anger in the game’s community. It seems that Soccer Punch is looking to get ahead of this by revealing its PSN plans ahead of the game’s launch in 10 days.

If you’re not familiar with Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, it’s a standalone multiplayer experience that lets you and up to three other players battle enemies in special missions, defeat waves of enemies, and perform all-out raids. Playing Legends requires a PSN account, but if you want to play through the game’s story (and the Iki Island expansion), you won’t need one.

Ghost of Tsushima hit PlayStation 4 on July 17, 2020, before launching on PlayStation 5 with the Director’s Cut on August 20, 2021. This is the version of the game that will hit PC in 10 days on May 16, 2024.
