Genshin Impact (Free) from miHoYo has been in the works for a while now for multiple platforms. While Genshin Impact is inspired by Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as you can see from the footage below, it does a lot of unique things when it comes to combat and it also has multiple varied worlds that look pretty unique so far. The game includes both singleplayer and multiplayer including cross platform support. Over the weekend, miHoYo revealed the release date for the PS4 version of Genshin Impact and began pre-orders on the PS Store. The company also confirmed how PS4 players can play alongside mobile and PC players. Sadly, cross progression will not be available between PS4 and other platforms. Data transfer is only possible between iOS, Android, and PC as of now. Co-op play and multiplayer will work across all platforms though. Watch a new behind the scenes video for Genshin Impact below:
It is pretty disappointing that the PS4 version will not be able to transfer data but given how multiple games in the past haven’t had full cross play and progression on PS4 until later if at all, I’m not surprised. The PS4 version even has exclusive content. Pre-registrations and pre-orders for Genshin Impact are already live with various reward tiers for all players. Genshin Impact is free to play on all platforms. The App Store page lists the various in app purchases you can expect including multiple sets of Genesis Crystals, a Blessings Bundle, Gnostic Hymn, Gnostic Chorus, and more. It finally releases worldwide on September 28th for iOS, Android, PS4, and PC. If you’re interested in checking it out, you can pre-order Genshin Impact on the App Store for iOS here and pre-register for it on Google Play for Android here.
