Genshin Impact Heads to Epic Games Store June 9

Genshin Impact

MiHoYo have announced that gacha action RPG Genshin Impact will be heading to the Epic Games Store.

To celebrate the new platform, in-game redemption code “GenshinEpic” can be redeemed for a “special gift.” As player’s data is saved to their account, this should mean players are able to transfer their existing accounts to the Epic Games Store if they so choose.

In earlier news, miHoYo detailed the contents of their upcoming 1.6 Midsummer Island Adventure patch, also reportedly launching June 9.

Genshin Impact is available and free-to-play on Windows PC (via the official website, June 9th via the Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Android, iOS, and coming soon to Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)

You can find the full rundown (via the Epic Games Store) below.

MASSIVE OPEN WORLD
Climb any mountain, swim across any river, and glide over the world below, taking in the jaw-dropping scenery each step of the way. And if you stop to investigate a wandering Seelie or strange mechanism, who knows what you might discover?

ELEMENTAL COMBAT SYSTEM
Harness the seven elements to unleash elemental reactions. Anemo, Electro, Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, Dendro, and Geo interact in all sorts of ways, and Vision wielders have the power to turn this to their advantage.
Will you vaporize Hydro with Pyro, electro-charge it with Electro, or freeze it with Cryo? Your mastery of the elements will give you the upper hand in battle and exploration.

BEAUTIFUL VISUALS
Feast your eyes on the world around you, with a stunning art style, real-time rendering, and finely tuned character animations delivering you a truly immersive visual experience. Lighting and weather change naturally over time, bringing every detail of Teyvat to life.

SOOTHING SOUNDTRACK
Let the beautiful sounds of Teyvat draw you in as you explore this expansive world. Performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the soundtrack changes seamlessly with the time and gameplay to match the mood.

BUILD YOUR DREAM TEAM
Team up with a diverse cast of characters, each with unique personalities, stories, and abilities. Discover your favorite party combinations and level up your characters to help you vanquish even the most daunting of enemies.

JOURNEY WITH FRIENDS
Play together with friends across various platforms to trigger more elemental action, tackle tricky boss fights, and conquer challenging domains together to reap rich rewards.
As you stand atop the peaks of Jueyun Karst and take in the rolling clouds and vast terrain stretching out before you, you may wish to stay in Teyvat a little longer… But until you are reunited with your lost sibling, how can you rest? Go forth, Traveler, and begin your adventure!
