Out next month
It only released at the end of last month on PS4, but Genshin Impact has already had a huge, er, impact. The free-to-play adventure smashed our own expectations, and developer Mihoyo has reportedly made a whole lotta money. But if you've been wondering what's next for Genshi
Chinese free-to-play has really taken off
After originally causing controversy due to its similarities to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, free-to-play PlayStation 4 action role-playing release Genshin Impact has turned out to be a bit of a juggernaut for Chinese de
Add to library
Straight to the point: Genshin Impact has pretty much ripped our expectations to shreds. The game that many have been calling a Breath of the Wild clone is actually really, really good — and it doesn't have to cost you a penny. Genshin Impact is a free-to-play, open world action RPG. It has a story, interesting characters, quests,...
Breath of the Wild on PlayStation?
Genshin Impact, the free-to-play action RPG regularly compared to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, has today released on PlayStation 4. It's available as a free download from the PlayStation Store, or you can opt to purchase an £8.99/$9.99 Adventurers Bundle alongside it to give you a headstart. What...
Genshin Impact, the action RPG from developer miHoYo, is finally releasing on PlayStation 4 late next month. The game's been in development for a while, and we've been following it ever since it was announced for Sony's system in 2019. You may remember that some crazy Nintendo fans caused a ruckus when it was revealed because it looks a...
Update: Seems sign-ups are closed
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...
Action RPG continues to impress
We reckon Genshin Impact, the open world action role-playing game from Chinese developer Mihoyo, has been done a disservice. When the game was revealed for PlayStation 4 back at ChinaJoy 2019, it was dismissed by many as a simple "Breath of the Wild clone", and one Nintendo fan went as far as to smash a PS4 in protest...
Keep calm and carry on
A few months ago, Nintendo fans tossed their amiibo out of the pram when a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild-inspired title was announced for the PlayStation 4. One particular player was so peeved by the existence of Genshin Impact that he smashed up Sony’s system in protest; others gathered at the Japanese giant’s...
Protest breaks out at ChinaJoy
Oh boy, this is a doozy. For those who aren't aware, one of the many games announced at this year's ChinaJoy event is Genshin Impact, an open world action RPG that might ring a bell. As you can see in the announcement trailer, it bears more than a passing resemblance to
Still not worth smashing a console over, though
Despite what you may see and hear in the above video, it is not a subliminal advert for Ubisoft, and nor was it filmed at a public swimming pool. It is, in fact, off-screen gameplay of Genshin Impact, a new PlayStation 4 title announced and shown off at ChinaJoy. In the nine-minute clip, we get to see...
Waifu of the Wild
Waifu of the Wild is what we colloquially named Genshin Impact at Push Square Towers while it was being showcased during Sony's ChinaJoy 2019 livestream. The open world RPG – previously announced for PC and smartphones – has a fairly cookie cutter premise and art style, but looks pretty polished in its announcement trailer...
