Shanghai studio miHoYo has announced Genshin Impact, an open-world action game that takes place on the magical world of Teyvat.
Check out the trailer below:
Aeons ago, the elder elemental gods gave civilization to the human race, but the world soon splintered as corruption and greed grew without check. The gods watched from their abode in Celestia and selected the worthy to sit by their side and maintain the balance that hold the world together in one piece.
The world is divided into culturally unique environs and themes. Delve into the ruins of a blasted empire that went too far in forbidden technologies, scale massive gothic towers of medieval fortresses, savor fine tea from jade pavilions, spar with kenshis in Sakura woods, and let your imaginations go wild in this definitive Universe. The epic backstory and lore will enrich your thirst for more knowledge about this magical universe…
Check out some screenshots below:
It seems that Genshin Impact will take place in the same universe as the manga by the same name by miHoYo, which has been serialized at Crunchyrull Manga since 2018. You can check out the manga here.
Genshin Impact is set to hit PC and iOS in 2020. Registration for the closed beta has begun, which you can find here.
