Hi everyone! I’m Max, from the Genshin Impact Community Team at miHoYo. Today, we’re really excited to announce that our first-ever closed beta on PlayStation 4 will go live on July 2!
For those of you joining us for the first time, Genshin Impact is a brand-new open world action title set in a fantasy land called Teyvat. You will be playing as ‘The Traveler’, who braves this whole new world only to be deprived of their power and more importantly, their only kin. With scarce knowledge of this mysterious realm, in order to unveil the riddles of this enigmatic world and achieve the ultimate goal of reuniting with your kin, you set off a journey across a foreign land with your only companion, the cute and kind-hearted Paimon.
Exploration & Co-op
During this beta, PS4 players will get to explore a slice of the wonderful in-game world. Enjoy your journey as it takes you from the serene city of Mondstadt to the majestic region of Liyue Harbor. However, if you ever feel lonely or need a helping hand against a powerful monster, there is also the option to invite your friends into your world. We are absolutely excited for you to experience our co-op system that allows you to create a party of up to four players.
Characters & Combat
Genshin Impact is more than just your run-of-the-mill action game. You will build a team with characters from a rich roster, each with distinctive personalities and combat styles.
Players are free to choose between English or Japanese character voiceovers for a fully immersive audio experience. Playable characters each have control over one of seven natural elements, giving them access to powerful elemental abilities. Combining elements in ways to create chain reactions is the key to defeating powerful enemies and solving challenging puzzles in the open world.
Players are free to choose between English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese character voiceovers for a fully immersive audio experience.
Player freedom is a core pillar of our design – we hope to pack the game with a variety of different experiences, whether it be in the immersive open world exploration, the narrative driven gameplay, or the intense and thrilling combat. It’s entirely your call on how to tackle the world of Teyvat, what kind of adventure you are looking for in any given moment, and what you are looking to ultimately achieve.
PS4 users can play this worldwide beta with language support in: English, Chinese (Simplified & Traditional), Japanese, Korean, French, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, and Thai. For more info, visit our Closed Beta FAQ.
Finally, thanks for your continued support and we will see you in Teyvat!
