[Guide] Email Bind Guide -- Registering A Gaijin Account Bound To Your PSN Account

Registering A Gaijin Account Bound To Your PSN Account

By registering a Gaijin account with an email address you open up the following features:

  • The possibility to play on PC with your PS4 account.
  • The access to our technical support.
  • The possibility of authorisation in forum, live and wiki.

 

To register a Gaijin account and bind an email address to your PSN account please follow these steps.
  
1 - Open War Thunder on your PS4 by selecting the War Thunder application on the PS4 XMB.

2 - Once the War Thunder application is fully loaded on your PS4 you will be at your War Thunder home screen. Depending on any previous decisions you may have made in the game you may be presented with informational splash screens. For the purposes of this process we want the “Binding e-mail to your account” splash screen. Please click the “Ok” button to continue.

3 - Alternatively you may click on your “Profile” button which is positioned towards the top left of the War Thunder home screen to go to your profile where you may continue the process.

4 -  In your profile please click the “E-mail bind” button which is positioned at the bottom left of the screen to continue the process.

Note: If you cannot see this button you already have a bound email address. You can request password reset at Gaijin.net if you don't remember it. If you don't remember what email it was, contact tech support

5 - Once you have completed step 2 or 4 you will be taken to a web page where you may enter the email address you wish to use to register your Gaijin account and bind it to your PSN account. This can be any email address you have access to as long as it wasn't used for registration in PC version before. Please enter a valid email address and click the “Bind” button. You will now be returned to your previous in game screen.
 
Note: If you already have a PC Gaijin account you can't use the same email address again. You must use a different email address.

6 - An email has been sent to the email address you entered in step 5. This email confirms you have successfully registered a Gaijin account with the email address you entered and linked it to your PSN account. This email also provides you with a randomly generated password.

These are the credentials you should use to login to all War Thunder related activities on the War Thunder website. You may also use them to login on your computer depending on your preferred operating system to the Linux, Mac and PC versions of War Thunder.

Note: This does not give you the possibility of access to Gaijin Store and Steam Store. You must purchase any DLC and Golden Eagles using Playstation Store. For the purchase to be validated and applied to your account you have to login to your PS4 War Thunder account on a PS4 console.
 
Once you have completed the above please read here https://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/240857-news-game-activity-and-forum-permissions/ for posting eligibility requirements.

Hi

 

As you have been a member since 12 Jan 2014 you will already have entered an email address when you first fired up War Thunder on your PS4 and will already have the bind to the Gaijin account with that email address.

 

As per item 4 in the guide. - Note: If you cannot see this button you already have a bound email address.

 

Please contact support https://support.gaijin.net/hc/en-us quoting your Playstation Network ID that you use to play War Thunder and explain your issue to them. They may retrieve your email address for you providing you can prove your credentials. There are security issues involved as many members spend a lot of money on their accounts and Gaijin do not take the security of accounts lightly. It is a members responsibility to remember and keep secure their account details.

 

Forum staff have no access to members email and email bind details. You must contact support to resolve your issue.

 

Cheers

Muzz

Does this mean if i get a PS4 i can bind my PC account to the PS4 so i can play on both with one account?

 

No. You cannot play a PC account on PS4. You can only play a PS4 account on PC.

If you first started playing War Thunder on PS4 before manual binding system was introduced your PSN War Thunder account will already have been bound to Gaijin.net.

 

As per right at the top of my OP in the guide: Note: This applies to new accounts only. Existing accounts are already Gaijin registered and bound using the email address and password you entered during the registration process when you first installed War Thunder on your PS4..

 

Just download the War Thunder client to your PC and insert the exact same credentials you use to login to the forums into the War Thunder PC launcher when you start the game.

 

You must use the credentials that log you into the forum under your PSN nickname. If your nickname on the forums is not the same as your PSN nickname then those are the wrong credentials to enter into the PC war Thunder launcher..

 

Eg. If your current forum nickname THEKILLER is not your PSN nickname then that's the wrong credentials to play your PS4 account on PC. If THEKILLER is your PSN nickname then use the credentials you use to login to the forum under THEKILLER in the PC War Thunder launcher.

 

If you do not know what your PSN forum credentials are you will have to open a support ticket here https://support.gaijin.net/hc/en-us to get all your details. Forum staff do not have access to your account details for security reasons. only support have access to your account details.

Hello. I have a problem. I went to link my ps4 account with a email. So i did all the steps to link my email that i could do. And as soon as i finished putting my email down on the page i pressed enter. The page closed and went back to the game. senses that i have not gotten a email by war thunder that i have linked my email to my ps4 account so i dont known my given password. So i went to the war thunder page and went to reset my passworld to my email i used to link my ps4 account. All i got was a USER ID NOT FOUND. And also i dont have a email binding bouttin on my ps4 account any more. So i guess that i have no way of linking my email to my ps4 account. And sucks because i cant link my ps4 account to my PC game.      

 

note: The account/email that i used to send this on is not the same as the email i used to link my account on ps4

You don't have the same problem. What Edward did was linking his PS4 to wrong email or something like this. 

 

You, on the other hand, already have a working linked account, but want to make purchases without PS4 which is not possible.

Hi,

 

in the last couple of days I have done a lot of research about the question "Can you bind your WarThunder PC Account to your PS4 Account?".

It was allways the same answer, no! The official reason was/is that Sony doesn't want it.

The posts to this topic are a little bit older, therefore I have a few questions:

 

1. Is it still not possible to bind your WarThunder PC account to your PS4 account, or has anything changed?

 

2. (if not) Are there still proceedings to change that and what is the current status?

 

3. (if not) what is the official reason from Sony to denie PC Players the entrance to the PS4 account when it's working the other way around?

 

Best greetings,

GoetzMatthes

1. No

 

2. Unknown if there are or have ever been any negotiations. Only Gaijin admin or Sony could answer that and due to corporate NDA's I can't see that happening.

 

3. Unknown. You would have to ask Sony, but again, due to corporate NDA's I don't fancy your chances of getting an answer.

The bind button should disappear and your forum nickname should be the same as your PSN ID but with a * prefix.

 

You should also be able to login and play the game on PC with the details you used during the bind process.

Help in ReBinding

Created an account for my 1st son in PS4 and worked with binding with his psn. I wanted to bind it with my account on pc that is more upgraded, so I unbound my son's account but did not work. I tried to run WT son's account PS4 but it kept on saying lack of internet connection.

I logged in using his psn email at WT site then unbound/unbind,. still did not work-"lack of internet connection" why when other accounts on same ps4 can log in to wt? so i tried removing account from wt site. still same same.

What to do to get my son's account to play again in PS4?

You can only bind PS4 account to email NOT registered in PC version yet. And you can't "unbound" them, I'm pretty confused on what you did exactly. Please contact support.
