God of War Ragnarok Confirmed To Require PSN Account On PC

Expert Verified By

All Ports Likely To Come With PSN Requirement Now!

Story Highlights
  • Sony has revealed that God of War Ragnarok will require a PSN ID on PC.
  • This means the much-anticipated release won’t be available in many parts of the world.
  • It also seems this requirement will become permanent for all future PlayStation PC ports.

Sony just announced God of War Ragnarok for PC, and to put an end to the hype, it will also require a PSN account. Sony kicked off this requirement will Helldivers 2 and Ghost of Tsushima. The same will be the case for Kratos’ second outing on PC.

Why it matters: Considering how popular God of War is as a franchise, the PSN requirement will prevent the title from being available in unsupported regions, leading to many fans missing out on the much-anticipated release.

As spotted by Tom Warren, God of War Ragnarok’s official announcement, in addition to a post on the PlayStation Blog, warns users about the requirement of a PSN ID to access the game.

This is strange for the upcoming port, as it doesn’t have any online elements. It was somewhat understandable for Helldivers 2 and Ghost of Tsushima, as the former is a complete live service, while the latter has an online mode.

However, God of War Ragnarok lacks these, which puts the title in a weird spot.

If any game had the potential to cripple all the previous records and set the bar the highest for PlayStation’s PC releases, it was Santa Monica’s latest release. However, this title may no longer reach its full potential.

Even with restrictions, Ghost of Tsushima broke records. Therefore, God of War Ragnarok will likely perform well, even if it falls short of the biggest milestones.

It is also important to note that we can expect all future Sony games to come with this limitation. Since God of War Ragnarok requires a PSN account, it seems PlayStation will enforce this requirement on every single game moving forward.
