At the moment, there’s not a ton players get out of a Steam and PSN account link. Nixxes Software, the studio that helped port Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered to PC, announced some incentives for PC users willing to make themselves known on the PlayStation ecosystem.

Owners of Marvel’s Spider-Man on Steam who use the “Connect to PSN” option newly added to the game gain three minor bonuses. These are an early unlock of the Concussive Blast gadget, an early unlock of the Resilient Suit for Spider-Man, and two skill points for use in unlocking new moves and perks.

As Sony ramps up its catering to the PC audience, mainly with releases of PlayStation Studios’ games to PC, fans who choose to link up could see other benefits. Cross-platform progression, special unlocks, or potentially even cross-ownership could be possible. Destiny 2, which is developed and managed by the now Sony-owned Bungie, allows cross-progression across all available platforms.

PSN and Steam account linking is now active. Marvel’s Spider-Man is readily available on PS4, PS5, and PC.
