A new feature lets you connect Steam and PSN accounts – but only in specific games. Here's how to connect your Steam and PlayStation Network accounts and why you should do it.
Steam has recently started offering a neat new feature: you can now connect your Steam and PSN accounts. This feature was introduced with Spider-Man Remastered on PC, but is also available for other games. And you should definitely do it, as it's pretty easy and you will get rewards for it. But this feature is currently only available for a limited number of games. We will show you which games these are and why you should use this feature.
Steam & PSN: How To Connect Your Accounts
The process is pretty easy. First you need a Steam account as well as an PlayStation Network account. Duh. Then, you have two options to connect your Steam account with your PSN account:
- Make sure the eligible game (find a list of all supported games below) is up-to-date on Steam and start it on your PC. You should now be asked to input your PSN credentials. If you don't see anything pop up, check the options menu and you should find this feature there.
- You can log into PSN on your PC, download and start an eligible game and then input your PSN login data.
According to the FAQ by Sony which you can find above, you should only need to do this procedure once for your Steam and PSN accounts to be connected. Here's a list of every game that you can connect your Steam and PSN accounts with:
- God of War
- Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered
- Days Gone
- Horizon Zero Dawn
- Predator: Hunting Grounds

What You Get For Connecting Your Steam and PlayStation Network Accounts
If you connect your Steam and your PSN accounts, you will get in-game rewards for supported titles. In the case of Spider-Man Remastered, this means a suit, a gadget and some skill points. It's important to emphasize, that these aren't exclusive rewards and they can be unlocked in the game. There also isn't a full list of all unlocks for all games. Sony promises "unique bonus content", but so far it is not clear what exactly that entails.
You will also get to "manage your communication preferences, and receive the latest news, updates, and offers about your game and other upcoming PlayStation Studios games on PC or other PlayStation platforms". So you basically sign up for a newsletter. But it is still a pretty neat reward for doing very little at all, so we recommend connecting your Steam and your PSN accounts. They're better together.
