Hi, I’m Sam. Today I’m excited to share a brand-new open world action title: Genshin Impact, set in a fantasy world called Teyvat. You will be playing as “The Traveler,” who awakens from a long sleep on the shore alone, loses connection with their sibling, and has scarce knowledge of this mysterious land. To unveil the riddle of this enigmatic land and achieve the ultimate goal of reuniting with your kin, you bravely set off with the cute, kind-hearted Paimon.
Explore the Open World of Possibilities
Teyvat is a world filled with secrets and surprises at every step. With freeform movement and a fast travel system, you will be able to reach all corners of the world as you please, discover numerous scattered encampments, mysterious dungeons, and treasures, or simply enjoy the sense of natural beauty. Genshin Impact provides all kinds of possibilities to ensure immersive gameplay with great freedom. Teyvat features seven city-states, each with their own distinct and exotic aesthetics, architectural style and landscape, which further enhance the enjoyment of exploration and discovery.
As an open world title, we believe freedom in all aspects of the game is a top priority. We are considering ways to further enhance the feature set, such as outfit customization and player housing. More details will be forthcoming in the future.
Master the Natural Elements
Inspired by scientific reaction, Genshin Impact features a natural elemental interaction system for the purpose of puzzle-solving, combat and exploration. Characters have control over one of seven natural elements, such as Pyro, Hyrdo, Electro, Anemo, Dendro etc. which allows them to showcase unique and powerful elemental attacks. Meanwhile, your thoughtfulness and observations are key to using powers to create effective interactions and use them to overcome any obstacle you encounter.
Choose Your Own Allies for The Journey
As your journey goes further, you will encounter new adversaries and stronger challenges, it’s unwise to go alone! Genshin Impact offers a steep roster of over 30 characters with distinctive personalities, appearances, combat styles and elemental skills, allowing you to customize your team with up to four members, and swap characters as needed.
Travel Alone, or Hunt Together
We want to create a unique world that is 100% yours. You can choose to play alone, to enjoy the scenery and the peace of mind, to charge head-on into battles on your own, or explore the vast map without distraction. However, if you feel lonely, or need a helping hand or two against a powerful monster, there is also the option to invite your friends into your world.
In Genshin Impact, we want to pack the game with a plethora of different experiences, from open world exploration, to narrative driven gameplay, to intensive combat. However, it’s ultimately your call on how to tackle the world of Teyvat, what kind of experience you are looking for in any given moment, and what you are looking to achieve.
Genshin Impact will launch on PS4 in 2020. We encourage everyone to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about the game and receive new information. Thank you for reading. We hope to talk to you again soon!
