PlayStation is officially bringing Trophies to PC

1 month ago 65

The PC version of Ghost of Tsushima will have trophy support, a first for PlayStation‘s PC titles.

Players who sign in to their PSN accounts on PC will be able to earn Trophies. The list of trophies is the same as the PS5 version of the game, but it’s not clear if the list will be treated as separate from the PS5 version, as is the case with games that have both a PS4 and PS5 version.

The game will be released on PC on May 16. A new PlayStation PC overlay will also debut with the release of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut.

“Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is the first PlayStation title on PC that uses a new PlayStation overlay, which includes your Friends list, Trophies, Settings, and your Profile,” explained Nixxes Software‘s Julian Huijbregts.

“This feature is available on Windows PCs and will be accessible from the in-game menu or, for keyboard players, by pressing the “SHIFT +F1” shortcut on your keyboard.”

“While playing the game, you can earn PlayStation Trophies just like on PlayStation consoles. Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PC shares the same Trophy set as the game on PlayStation 5 consoles. In addition, the PC version also has full support for Achievements on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

“To make use of features like Trophies, Friends list, and cross-play, you can sign in with your existing account for PlayStation Network or create a new account. The use of PlayStation overlay is optional for both the single player experience and Legends mode.”

The addition of trophy support was first rumoured last year following the addition of PSN support to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on PC. While the game does not feature trophy support, it offers players in-game rewards in exchange for linking their Steam and PSN accounts.

While PlayStation Studios games on PC – such as God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone and Spider-Man Remastered – can be played without the need to sign up for a PSN account, this isn’t necessarily the case with Xbox Game Studios titles, which requires an Xbox Live account for some games on Steam.

Sucker Punch and Nixxes have also released the system requirements for the game, which includes support for ultra-wide monitors, with support for 21:9 and 32:9 resolutions. 48:9 resolutions and triple monitor set-ups are also supported.
