SHANGHAI, September 28, 2020 — Today, global interactive entertainment developer and publisher miHoYo announced that Genshin Impact, its latest open-world action RPG title, is now available on PlayStation®4, PC, Android, and iOS worldwide.

With Genshin Impact, miHoYo brings players to the visually stunning world of Teyvat, a land ruled by seven elemental gods known as the Archons. The player takes on the role of the mysterious "Traveler," who embarks on a journey to discover the fate of their lost sibling and unveils the mysterious secrets of this world along the way. In the course of their journey, players can explore a wondrous world of diverse cultures and terrain, join forces with over 20 playable characters, master the art of elemental combat and exploration, and unravel the countless mysteries that Teyvat holds in store.

 

"For the past three and a half years, our team has been working towards creating a sprawling, beautiful open-world game in which players have the freedom to explore alone or bring friends along for the journey," said Forrest Liu, General President of miHoYo. "We're very grateful to have over 10 million players pre-registered for Genshin Impact across PS4, PC, and mobile around the world. We can't wait to see you all in the world of Teyvat."

 

According to miHoYo, today's launch is just the beginning of Genshin Impact's journey. On release, players will be able to explore Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor — two of the seven major cities in Teyvat — each with their unique cultures, stories, and vast surrounding countryside, and both full of a diversity of creatures, monsters, mysteries, and hidden treasures. The game will continue to expand with more cities, follow-up stories, new characters, and seasonal events through live-service updates to enrich the gameplay and exploration of the world of Teyvat. Future patches will also seek to continually optimize Genshin Impact's technical performance for each platform.

 

Players can now download Genshin Impact for free on PlayStation®4 via the PlayStation™Store, on Android via Google Play, on iOS via the App Store, and on PC only via Genshin Impact's official website (genshin.mihoyo.com):

  • Pre-install is available for all supported platforms and regions as of September 28 at 00:00 (UTC +8).
