Open-World RPG ‘Genshin Impact’ Details New Area and Reveals Switch Version in Trailer

MiHoYo has launched a new trailer for the open-world RPG Genshin Impact, planned to release on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices in 2020.

The trailer introduces a new area to the game known and the Land Amidst Monoliths. If players head south from Mondstadt, they’ll arrive in a nation known as Liyue, which is home to the most prosperous merchant port in all of Teyvat, Liyue Harbor. The presence of the adepti can be noticed in the area, which the people of Liyue believe to be lead by the Geo God, Rex Lapis.

Also released in a Nintendo Switch trailer which just quickly shows the game running on Switch hardware. However, this is only a cinematic.

Genshin Impact is an 0pen-world Action RPG where you will play as a young protagonist known as the traveler. During gameplay, players will be able to explore and climb various buildings and locations, and battle monsters around the game’s open world. This game is definitely inspired by titles like Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Breath of the Wild just by the look of it, but the models and animations are very similar to Honkai Impact 3rd.

Currently, the developer is taking sign-ups for the game’s upcoming beta on the Official Website, which doesn’t have a release date or platform, but we can assume it is going to be PC.

You can watch the new area video for Genshin Impact to hold you over until more information is announced:
