There is a physical copy of a game that I'dd like to own (Firewatch) but seems to be available in the USA only.

If I were to purchase this game, would it work with my UK Playstation and UK account?

Thanks in advance!

is it for ps3 or ps4? if yes, then yes it should work.
ps1 and ps2 game discs are region coded, but ps3 and ps4 discs have no region code on them so they should work in any region.
I can play Japan and Europe ps3 discs on my US Playstation with a US account.

It is concerning a PS4.
I've been reading a bit on Internet and a physical copy seems to work withour any problems, as you confirmed. Thank you!
Just for DLCs or downloading from the store you apperantly need a US account.

Thank you!

Just be aware that if it's not directly from limited run games, you're buying from a scalper. Yes you can play it, but expect to get some tax/toll charge if they stop it on the way into your country. It's currently on sale, so it's a lot of money for a box with a beautiful image on it.
This is my signature.

Yes DLC is region locked to the spec region the game is from. So you would of have to.
