Sony is taking its venture into the PC market seriously, as PlayStation Network (PSN) is heading for PC. As of today, PSN and Steam accounts can be linked, starting with Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. An official Steam post reveals that linking the PC game to a PSN account will reward early unlocks of an in-game suit and gadget, as well as rewarding two extra skill points.
It was leaked two months ago from the Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered PC files that PSN integration was on the way. At present, linking accounts will just give the player news and updates on PlayStation Studios titles on the PC. Whilst the features of PSN on PC are minimal at this point, there’s plenty of room for expansion.
Using the PSN service has the potential to bring extra value to the PC ports of PlayStation Studios games, such as cross-save functionality, trophies and the PlayStation Stars rewards programme. It’s a small start right now for PSN, but other leaks suggest the end result could be a full PlayStation launcher for PC.
The update adding support for PSN to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered also comes with a bunch of performance improvements and fixes. Changes have been made to how the game handles raytracing to enhance performance, and it also now supports Intel XeSS upscaling on Intel, AMD and NVIDIA GPUs. The patch notes also confirm that NVIDIA DLSS 3 is coming to the game at a later date.
