It's been a while since we've spared a thought for Genshin Impact, but it seems the game is coming along well. As a reminder, this is an open world action RPG from Chinese studio Mihoyo that rubbed Zelda fans the wrong way with its resemblance to Breath of the Wild. There hasn't been much information to go on lately, but that could all change very soon with an upcoming beta test.
PlayStation 4 users can look forward to a "final closed beta" starting from 2nd July. As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, players who take part will be able to explore a portion of the map, letting you check out "the serene city of Mondstadt to the majestic region of Liyue Harbor". You'll be able to play solo or invite some friends for up to four player co-op.
Sign-ups appear to be closed, sadly -- hopefully anybody interested got in. The developer is sending out invites today. Did you get in? Will you be checking out Genshin Impact on PS4? Let us know in the comments section below.
I go to the website but I can't see where to sign up
I actually was hoping the full game would be released soon.Didant realize it was STILL in beta mode.
Shame ya can't play it offline as I was quite interested in it otherwise from that initial reveal... Oh well
If you told me it was another Breath of the Wild mod, I'd believe you as well.
I think I've registered... Maybe.
Nice, I've seen the pc gameplay on youtube and it seems fun 😃
Edit: It seems I already register to mihoyo account a couple of weeks ago, I hope I can get in to the the beta.
@playstation_king Just need to click the yellow 'Register' button on the homepage, I believe
Thanks to this article, I just checked if I'd been accepted and I have - as of one hour ago, so that was good timing.
Free to play just lost all interest.
@Quintumply you’d think but when clicking the big yellow button You are asked to register an account. Upon doing so it then doesn’t give you the option to register for the beta. It only gives you Account Management and Settings page.
Even returning to original page with big yellow button doesn’t work
@Jacko11 Strange. I'll update the article if I find any more info
Guys on Reddit thinks that registration for beta was already few weeks ago.
There’s nothing on the official website to register for the beta only to register to the site
@Quintumply thanks man. It is very strange cause usually these things are really straight forward to apply for
FAQ from the page says:
Q: How can I take part in Genshin Impact's Final Closed Beta?
A: Travelers can complete the registration form on our official website in order to register for the beta test.
Please note that applying does not guarantee that you will gain access to the Final Closed Beta.
*We suggest that you use the latest versions of the Chrome, Firefox or Safari browsers to fill this form in
Actually, the signups ended last Friday.
Is Genshin Impact what they changed the name of Gods & Monsters too?
I actually thought that until I realized this is a Chinese company and G&M, whatever it's called now, is Ubi.
Have adjusted some text in the story regarding the sign ups.
@Quintumply tried that but just asks me to create an account then nothing after that, according to some other users the beta sign ups have ended already....
@playstation_king Yeah unfortunately it seems sign ups are closed. Apologies — I thought they were open.
This game look interesting. Shame its only at Beta though, so it must still be some way off. I hope they are doing a PS5 version.
@rjejr Gods & Monsters title hasn't changed, that will be the final name of the game.
Currently expected to release Late 2020, unless there's another delay.
@KidBoruto If the title of the game hasn't changed then why did the guy say formerly known as the last time they talked about it?
"Our vision for the game formerly known as Gods and Monsters has evolved in surprising ways, which is..."
@rjejr Ah sorry, I haven't been keeping up-to-date on Gods & Monsters tbh.
@KidBoruto Don't worry about it, neither has Ubisoft and they're making it. It was dated for February, can't blame the pandemic on that one.
I definitely dig the art direction. If it’s a legitimately compelling game when it finally releases you can bet on me picking it up for sure.
@rjejr Nope, Gods & Monsters is pushed back indefinitely as far as I know. They haven’t announced the new title or anything yet.
@JesWood13 I imagine they won't be releasing Gods & Monsters and Watch Dogs Legion at the same time as Assassin's Creed: Valhalla.
I actually got in! After the third attempt. Now, I'll get confirmation on whether it's a clone of BotW or not.
@JesWood13 Thanks. I was actually looking forward to G&M this past Feb when they announced the release date at E3 last year. I should really know better by now. Oh well.
