As you know, it is possible to create War Thunder account in the PlayStation 4/5 version of the game and link it to email in order to login with it on official forums or PC-version of the game.

We are now offering opportunity to unlink your PSN-bound account. As a result of this procedure, you will have 2 separate accounts - original one that you can still use from the console (but can't use in PC version anymore), and another fully fledged PC-account with no restrictions for using Gaijin Store etc. In-game progress will be saved at the moment of unlinking and after that will be no longer be shared and will become independent on each platform.


For technical reasons, at this stage we do not offer the unlinking for accounts that also played and have purchases for PC versions of our games (Crossout, CRSED, Star Conflict). If you are willing to sacrifice your progress/purchases in those titles, inform support about this in your request.

The email your PSN-account is bound to has to be verified (you can check this in your profile at, otherwise you won't be able to reset your password and enable 2-step authorization once the unlinking is complete. In order for email to be verified, it has to be working address and you should have access to it. Please ensure it before proceeding with unlinking, this article might be helpful for you -

You have to leave your squadron if you are a member of any. You will have to enlist back to it once the unlinking is finished.

Keep in mind:

Only purchases made for GE in-game in console version (including premium account time) will remain on PC account. Golden Eagles balance of the PC account will be set to 0. So it is advised that you spent any Golden Eagles left on the original PSN-account before initiating the unlinking, although it's up to you.

Silver Lions balance is preserved.

Any premium account time included into vehicle packs from the PlayStation Store will not be transferred, only the vehicles themselves (except for PS Store exclusive A-26 Invader).

All "market" inventory items such as unused vehicle and skin coupons and trophies will remain on the original account. If you want to keep the content provided by those items on PC account, you have to consume them before unlinking. But boosters, wagers, orders, discount coupons etc will be transferred to new account.

Save your controls presets into a file while in PC version with your existing account, so you can import them later with a new one.

All vehicle presets will not transfer to new account, you will have to recreate them.

Friends list will be reset

Squadron vehicles research will be saved on a new account except for the last 3 days. To continue research, you will have to join squadron again.

It's a one-time, one-way offer. It is not possible to link the accounts back again, or bind another email to your original PSN-account.

Once you spent all GE and inventory items (or are willing to proceed regardless) and left the squadron, login at and submit a new request (use the button at the top of the website next to your nickname). You can pick any category, the only thing that's important is that you name the request "Unlinking PSN-bound account"

Note! The average transferring process time takes up to 2 work days (and is provided only Monday to Friday), but this may change depending on the amount of pending requests. While the unlinking is undergoing, your account will be frozen to prevent login to the game and interfering with the process. You will be notified in the support ticket once all is done.

Yes. Keep in mind you can only purchase vehicles for SL and GE while logged in on PC with a console account.

Yes it will.


You have to link your PSN to email first if you didn't before. And it can't be the one already registered in PC version of WT.

You have to spend any remaining GE/consume coupons/leave the squadron etc before proceeding with unlinking, so of course you need to have access. As well as access to the email that is linked to this PSN account.

And yes, you will get one free nickname change.

With PSN account you can purchase GE in PC store but not premium packs. The latter you still have to buy in PS Store and activate them from console after purchase.

No. It will be a separate PC account.
