If I buy a US store digital code can I use it on a UK PS4?

Anything to do with games at all.

I believe you need to setup another account on the system from the US region if you want to do this?

Is that easy to do and can I then play it through the UK account and online too?

I've looked into it but never actually done it myself but I believe that is the case.

I believe that you'd need to purchase the US version of any add-ons / DLC if you want to use them with a US version of the game.

Sure can, as long as your UK account is the primary account on the PS4. Did the same with Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition which was about £4 or less on CDKeys at the time I bought it for a US PSN code.

You’ll need to set up an US account by creating a new profile (using a different email address from your UK account obviously!) - you may need to set that account as primary on the console.

Use Google to find a US postcode. make sure you pick a state that doesn’t add tax to purchases.

Enter the US code. Download it.

Switch to your own account. The download will still continue.

Play away.
