Genshin Impact officially launches for PC, PS4, and mobile devices

It sells the landing.

Shanghai-based developer miHoYo has officially launched the new open world multiplayer RPG Genshin Impact to the world, bringing its colorful universe and unique mechanics to iOS, Android, PlayStation 4, and PC.

In it, you play as a traveler from another world looking to reunite with a long-lost sibling and discover the mysteries of the world of Teyvat. Players can explore on foot, by using a glider, or by climbing in a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild-styled open world, with shrines to find and puzzles to clear. In combat, players switch between a party of four different characters from a large roster in active hack-and-slash combat, though the use of elements is said to play a significant factor in victory. Earning additional characters is done through following the main story or via a gacha mechanic, while multiplayer can involve as many as four players in cross-platform play.

In celebration of the game’s release, Genshin Impact is hosting a Sieze the Day login event where players can earn a bunch of different items when logging in for a total of seven days for those who are Adventure Rank 5. Items can be redeemed between now and October 10th.
