- An open world RPG in a new universe
- Pre-registration for the beta is available now
On June 8, 2019, Mihoyo announced a new game following their fantastically popular mobile game Honkai Impact 3rd. Genshin Impact, set to release spring 2020, is an open-world RPG featuring fantasy elements.
From the developer –
In this new adventure, players transform themselves into a mysterious character, take possession of magical powers, and embark on grand open world adventures to unveil wonders and their own destiny. Set in the fantasy, lush, beautiful open world called Teyvat, Genshin Impact puts players into the shoes of an enigmatic figure called “The Traveler”, who awakes on the shore, with the sole purpose of finding their long-lost kin. Featured with ancient city designs, scattered encampments and vibrant natural landscapes, the world of Teyvat allows The Traveler to unearth its secrets hidden behind the walls or beneath the wild natures with a freeform movement system.
There’s a unique combat system, a host of puzzles to crack and obstacles to overcome, and a bunch of beautiful views to enjoy. Overall, Genshin Impact looks to be a really cool console-ish title on a mobile platform. We’d love to see a lot more games like it.
Genshin Impact officially opens the gates for closed-beta signup today. To sign up, hit the link below.
