Genshin Impact is here. It’s running on platforms like the PlayStation 4 and PC now, but that also means an issue has come up. There have been concerns about the Genshin Impact anti-cheat system, and miHoYo committed to making sure it both works more effectively and also isn’t running when it shouldn’t be on its official site. The developer also confirmed its anti-cheat isn’t taking personal information and only looks at system information to stop plug-ins that could let people cheat in-game.
As part of the commitment, miHoYo said that all changes will be made “within the next 30 hours.” That means people shouldn’t see the Genshin Impact anti-cheat running if they aren’t in or don’t have the game and it should be better at catching people cheating by September 29, 2020.
This only affects the PC version of Genshin Impact. The PlayStation 4 and mobile versions would not have the same issue.
Genshin Impact is immediately available for the PlayStation 4, PC, and both Android and Apple iOS devices. It will also eventually come to the Nintendo Switch. Cross-play is available on all devices, though people won’t be able to transfer save data from other platforms to a PlayStation 4 or from a PS4 to them.
