Following today’s livestream for Genshin Impact (Free), miHoYo revealed Genshin Impact 2.0 with a look at the new region (the third one out of seven) coming to the game, cross save coming to PS4 and PS5 (finally!), new characters, and more. Genshin Impact 2.0 is titled ‘The Immovable God and Eternal Euthymia’ and it releases on July 21st worldwide. Beginning Genshin Impact 2.0, Mondstadt and Liyue are joined by Inazuma with unique stories, cultures, new landscapes, monsters, and more. Inazuma is surrounded by the sea on all sides and it is made up for six islands. Version 2.0 will bring in Kamisato Ayaka, Yoimiya, and Sayu as new characters. Sayu is a four star character while the others are five star characters. This update has improved PS5 DualSense functionality for PS5 players as well. Hopefully these can eventually make their way to iOS for those who use PS5 controllers on iOS devices. Watch the Genshin Impact 2.0 update trailer below:
The highlight of the update for me is cross save finally coming to PS4 and PS5 to bring progress from PC and mobile to PlayStation platforms and vice versa. I’m definitely going to play more since I can check out the native PS5 version with my mobile progress now. More details including pre-installation for Genshin Impact 2.0 will be revealed soon. If you’re interested in checking Genshin Impact out, you can download Genshin Impact on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here for free. The PC version is available on the official website here and the Epic Games Store. If you play on iOS, with iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5, you can now use PS5 and Xbox Series X|S controllers to play Genshin Impact. We featured Genshin Impact as our Game of the Week when it released and awarded it our 2020 Game of the Year.
