‘Helldivers 2’ PC players are upset about PSN account linking, and Arrowhead is responding

‘Helldivers 2’ PC players are upset about PSN account linking, and Arrowhead is responding

Helldivers has 2 players He was just informed If they are playing on PC, which most are, they will now need to link their PSN account to Steam to continue playing on the platform from May 6.

This either is or isn’t a big deal, depending on which side you’re on. Originally, players were already supposed to have a PSN linked to the game on PC when Helldivers 2 launched, but that was delayed for several months due to technical issues during that window. The other argument is that many other games do this too. Publishers like Ubisoft and EA allow you to create accounts there so you can play their games. Microsoft has players create an account to play Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčThieves on PC. So, PlayStation doing this isn’t entirely unique.

However, there is another side to this that has two main aspects. The first is that players simply don’t want to create a PSN account. Some are just because they don’t own a PlayStation or have any PlayStation games and it’s just another account to manage. Others cite service outages or security breaches that have plagued PSN (security issues are one reason PlayStation says it needs to do this).

But there’s another subset of gamers who don’t understand how they can keep playing at all, as dozens and dozens of countries in the world don’t even have access to PSN, so without any sort of workaround, and one hasn’t been announced, it seems they won’t. We will now be able to play Helldivers 2 on PC. We’ll see if that’s true for sure, but that’s what they logically assume.

Helldivers 2 is now facing a lot of negative reviews on Steam, where its positive rating has already dropped by a number of points. Now, Arrowhead CEO Johan Billstedt He chimed in, less enthusiastic in his voice.

In a tweet, Pilestedt simply says that all questions and comments should be directed toward PlayStation Support, and provides a link to a “how-to” page for the link:

However, on that page there is a section that specifically states that linking PSN to PC is optional:

Do I have to sign in to PSN to play a PlayStation game on PC?

Logging into PSN is optional when playing a PlayStation game on PC.

Page Views are a “benefit”, but are not mandatory. But for Helldivers 2, it will soon be mandatory. On the contrary, the Steam page Do Let’s say a PSN account is required, and this has always been mentioned as a plan.

I don’t know if this will have a tangible effect on player numbers in the end, despite the outrage, but it seems a bit strange, as Helldivers 2 was basically a huge success because Due to its great popularity on PC. However, for players who have access to PSN accounts, or the ability to create one, this does not seem to be the case Which Big deal, considering how many other games do this. We’ll see if anything changes in the wake of the hype.
