[News] Xbox account email linking


Link_Xbox_968_3bb6d37b95f8c0b407887bfa35

Dear Xbox players! Today, we’re happy to present to you the option to link your War Thunder account by email. This will allow you to play the PC version of the game whilst keeping all your progress, purchase Golden Eagles in the Gaijin Store, and access the forums, support website and War Thunder Live portal with ease.

Step by step instructions are as follows

  • Launch War Thunder on your Xbox One.
  • Once in the hangar, click on your nickname in the top left to open the profile screen.
  • In your profile, click the “E-mail bind” button which is positioned in the bottom left.
  • Enter your email address in the window that opens.
    • Note: this should be any valid email address you have access to. You can’t use an email that is already registered with Gaijin.net (with the PC version of War Thunder, or our other games). If the window states that a particular email is already bound, but you don’t remember what it was, contact Gaijin support and be prepared to confirm your ownership of the account (with purchase receipts, etc).
  • A message will be sent to the email address you entered. You will have to click on a link in that message in order to finish registering and subsequently set up a password. Note: until this is done, you can enter a different email in the linking window on the console, so if you entered the wrong address and cannot confirm it, you may start over.

 

Once you’re finished, you can immediately use that email and password to login on to the Linux, Mac and PC versions of War Thunder, and also our official website and forums, Gaijin Store, technical support and the War Thunder Live portal.

 

When logging in on PC, you will retain all your game progress from the Xbox One version. You may also purchase Golden Eagles in the Gaijin Store where you will keep them when logging back again into the Xbox One version. Note: you can’t access the vehicle packs section, purchase Gaijin Coins or access the Gaijin Market with an Xbox linked account.

Additional information

  • You cannot change your nickname when playing on PC - you can only change your gamertag on Xbox and login to the game on the console first. After that it will be updated in the PC version as well. 
  • You may unlink your account by logging a ticket with Gaijin support, but keep in mind, you will not be able to bind the email address again after this.
  • Account linking only works one way, from Xbox One to PC. You cannot transfer your existing PC progress to Xbox One.
  • You can use your bound email to play PC versions of Crossout and Cuisine Royale, but there is no transfer of game progress from Xbox One versions of those titles since they are not cross-platform capable. You will therefore have to start from scratch.

 

How to free up your email if already registered

If you already have a PC account (registered only for posting on the forum for example) but you no longer need it and want to use that email for Xbox bind, you can do the following:

  1. Login with your existing account to your profile and use "suspend profile" link to request account deletion, however such a move will delete the original account and any progress and purchases will also be deleted. This process is automatic and can take up to 90 days after request for suspension of an account is begun. An alternative process for this doesn't require account suspension, instead, you can create a ticket to our support and request a more speedy account deletion (within 30 days).
  2. Once it's free, you can link this email to your Xbox account.

You keep all your purchases from Xbox when you login to PC, so you will have the Chrysler. But Xbox accounts aren't allowed to purchase vehicle packs in Gaijin Store, so it's impossible to have both XM-1 at once.

You can't link the email that was used for registration on PC already.

It will show up this way to players from PC to distinguish between identical nicknames from different platforms.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy...this are awesome news! Thanks a lot for this feature :-)

 

Just 2 questions to be clear:

1) Do I understand it right, that with a linked Email I will be able to get Golden Eagles from the Gaijin Store AND from Microsoft? I will not be blocked from purchasing via MS Store?

2) Is there any way we can get the 100k Decal (and other decales) Gaijin gave away during different actions? As we werent able to participate there (email required) and it is sad to miss some cool decals...

1) Yes, you can purchase GE wherever you want.

2) Not the old ones, but future similar events will be available for Xbox linked accounts.

With regards to this (potentially) amazing change to the system, there is still a looming issue overhead for some of us. Many Xbox players are former PC players that already have an account linked to the email that our xbox accounts use, thus preventing us from linking, and some of us may want to delete the old PC account as a measure to allow us to link our current accounts. Is there any chance of that occurring? Any specific steps we can take to facilitate that action?

Just to be clear: The email that I am now using to log into the forums will not be able to be linked in my xBox as it is already in use?  I don't use this current email in any games.  Just here.

You can easily delete your account by going to https://store.gaijin.net/user.php -> Suspend profile option.

 

Then after 30 days I believe the email will be free for registration.

We don’t know what email your Xbox account is registered to, Microsoft doesn’t share such information. We only care that email you’re trying to link wasn’t used at Gaijin.net before. If it was, but you don’t need it anymore, you can request the deletion as described already.

Can the process be expedited given the circumstances? I feel that it would be necessary for the time being with linking just now becoming available. Waiting 30 days is a bit much to delete an account for now.

Try talking to support, it’s not up to me.

I connected my account to PC, I'm playing the game on the computer right now. After that, do I need xbox except for purchases? So I can sell my Xbox? Will I need to login from the xbox afterwards?

You can purchase Golden Eagles in Gaijin store (but not vehicles). To purchase the vehicle packs, you will need to do this from console.

Without the need for console, xbox account can not get over the internet from the pc?  bkz: https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/p/war-thunder-king-tiger-pack/brc1z7g40dbr?activetab=pivot%3Aoverviewtab

You can purchase stuff in webstore, but you won’t get it on your account until you launch WT from your Xbox.

So when, or or if at all, will we be able to link existing pc accounts? I would love to be able to use the premium vehicles I have already bought without spending 4x more then I did because the package deals aren't available anymore.
