PlayStation owners will be able to connect their accounts to Discord starting today, making it easier to share their activity and connect with other users using the popular social platform.
As detailed in Discord blog post, Playstation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners will have the option to link their PSN accounts to Discord. Once a PSN account is linked, they will have the option to show their activity while playing the game on either console. Players will also be able to display their PSN username on Discord, making it easier for other users to find them and play along.
Discord says the feature will be “rolling out gradually” to Discord users in the US first, with other countries rolling out soon. The feature itself will be available on any platform that supports Discord; this includes Windows, web apps, and iOS, to name a few.
The integration is part of an ongoing partnership with Sony that Discord says will allow players to “create amazing shared experiences together for your friends and community.” Last May, PlayStation made Minority investment in Discord to help form a partnership between the two companies.
The news comes just hours after PlayStation announced that it acquires Destiny developer Bungie for $3.6 billion. Despite the acquisition, Bungie assured fans of the series that the company will retain “full creative control and independent publishing of the Destiny universe.”
