miHoYo announced that their action RPG Genshin Impact will officially launch on PlayStation 5 soon, as the game is currently only available via backward compatibility with the PS4 version.
Genshin Impact on PS5 will feature 4k resolution support with enhanced textures across the colorful world. Further, the developer promises faster load times to provide a more seamless experience.
“The PlayStation 5 is an ideal platform to enhance the vast open-world featuring in Genshin Impact, allowing the team to incorporate more thoughts and ideas into the game, both now and in the future,” said Forrest Liu, President of miHoYo. “That’s why we’ve been working to bring the native PlayStation 5 version of the game to our players as soon as we could.”
To celebrate the announcement, the developer released a new trailer that highlights the PS5 version and shows off the game’s features.
Genshin Impact is a free-to-play open-world action RPG that brings players to the visually stunning world of Teyvat. The player takes on the role of the mysterious “Traveler,” who sets off on a journey to discover the fate of their lost sibling and unveils the mysterious secrets of Teyvat along the way.
Currently, players can explore both Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor, two of the seven major cities in Teyvat, each with unique cultures, stories, and vast surrounding landscapes, and offering a diversity of creatures, monsters, secrets, and hidden treasures for players to discover. Further cities, stories, characters, and seasonal events will be released as the game progresses.
