Open-World Anime ARPG “Genshin Impact” is Coming to PS4 in 2020

Shanghai-based developer Mihoyo has announced a PlayStation 4 port for the June-announced Genshin Impact.

The open-world action RPG is coming to the Sony console sometime in 2020, alongside the previously announced Windows PC, iOS, and Android platforms – news confirmed during this year’s ChinaJoy. The game is planned for a worldwide release.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Genshin Impact is an open world action game set in the fantasy world called “Teyvat”, offering players a freely explorable world, multiple playable characters, an in-depth elemental combo-based combat system and an engaging story. As a mysterious figure called “The Traveler”, players will embark on a journey of exploring the world filled with secrets, encountering distinct characters, defeating new adversaries and ultimately reuniting with their lost kin. The game has completed its first Closed Beta Test on iOS and PC to great success and is planning to have new beta test phases in the future.

Aeons ago, the elder elemental gods gave civilization to the human race, but the world soon splintered as corruption and greed grew without check. The gods watched from their abode in Celestia and selected the worthy to sit by their side and maintain the balance that hold the world together in one piece.

The world is divided into culturally unique environs and themes. Delve into the ruins of a blasted empire that went too far in forbidden technologies, scale massive gothic towers of medieval fortresses, savor fine tea from jade pavilions, spar with kenshis in Sakura woods, and let your imaginations go wild in this definitive Universe. The epic backstory and lore will enrich your thirst for more knowledge about this magical universe…
