Concord will also require a PlayStation Network account

The hero shooter joins Helldivers 2 as another Sony game as a service that will not be available in more than 100 countries

During the State of Play on August 30, Sony and Firewalk Studios finally gave us a first look at the gameplay of Concord, their new game as a service in the pure hero shooter style that will arrive on August 23 of this year on PlayStation 5 and PC.

However, to the bad news of many, it joins Helldivers 2, God of War: Ragnarök and Ghost of Tsushima as another Sony title that will not be available in more than 100 countries.

Now, in a new report from renowned Dealabs insider billbil-kun, confirmed through research that Concord will need a PSN account to play online, even if you play it on Steam or through the Epic Games Store. As happened with Helldivers 2, now this new title will no longer be available in more than 177 regions around the world, leaving many players out.

The community did not give much support to the Concord revelation

While the State of Play was full of big surprises, the internet called it a transmission of “hero shooters, soulslikes, ports and remakes”, recognizing that the most interesting thing about it was nothing more and nothing less than Astro Bot, the iconic PlayStation character who will finally have his own game solo for PS5.

The words “Concord is a 5 vs 5 First Person Shooter” have become a kind of meme on social media. Especially after a great cinematic was shown that had sold many more of an adventure in space than a Hero Shooter.

From making comparisons with Overwatch to saying that it lacks spirit and originality within the genre, criticism has eaten Concord alive even before its final release.

At the time of writing this article, the official Concord cinematic trailer has more than 21 thousand dislikes and 4 thousand likes that only bury the title in comparison to the 46 thousand likes and 581 dislikes that Astro Bot has had.

Will Sony really repeat what happened with Helldivers 2?

In early May, the Helldivers 2 community began a crusade against Sony after the late implementation of the PlayStation Network in Arrowhead Studios' successful space multiplayer. This measure angered users to the point of review bombing the game, and even request refunds on Steam after Valve made an exception to its own policy.

Days later, it was learned that the PlayStation Network service is not available in more than 170 regions around the world, where several Latin American nations such as Aruba, Barbados, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Venezuela are located. It is important to mention that PlayStation Network is only available in 69 countries at the time of writing this article.

Undoubtedly, it seems that this measure by Sony could be a shot in the foot for Concord even months after its official launch.
