Get your first look at Genshin Impact, a new open world adventure coming to PlayStation next year

Fight and solve puzzles across a gorgeous sprawling world, solo or with friends

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 awakes 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. 

Here is our latest trailer featuring first ever look at the PS4 version, please take a look:

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 progresses, you will encounter new adversaries and stronger challenges – it can be unwise to go alone! Genshin Impact offers a 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 PlayStation 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!

This looks awesome!

The all important question, will this have character creation? The game looks awesome, and I’ll probably get it regardless, but if it’s got character customization this might be one of the games I’m looking forward to the most next year.

Also…”Coming to Playstation 2020″ is this a nudge towards next gen/PS5?

Character Creation would be nice, but I guess we have to play with “kind-hearted Paimon” and her roster of 30 characters.

Well, at least there’s outfit customization.

Looks beautiful. Gonna give it a go. Just supply the product 😂

Looks great, just please balance the running animation, as many other games, the animation should be realistic to the movement we do in real life.

I’m not falling for the “cute, kind-hearted Paimon.” line. I’ve seen “Hereditary”!

Looks great but where are the “puzzles” ?

Looking forward to this!
