Genshin Impact

The final closed beta test for open-world action RPG Genshin Impact will begin on July 2 for PlayStation 4, PC, iOS, and Android, publisher and developer miHoYo announced.

Here is an overview of the game and final closed beta test, via miHoYo:

Genshin Impact is an open-world action RPG title set in the expansive fantasy world of Teyvat. It offers a lively open world, a variety of characters, element-based combat and exploration, and an engaging story. Players take on the role of the mysterious “Traveler,” who sets off on a journey to find their lost sibling and ultimately unravels the many mysteries of Teyvat in addition to their own.

During the beta, players will be able to explore Mondstadt and Liyue—two of the seven major cities in Teyvat—as well as the vast surrounding landscape full of creatures to encounter, enemies to fight, mysteries to solve, and hidden treasures to find. Players can build their four-person party from a wide range of playable characters, using their varying combat styles and elemental abilities to overcome different obstacles in the world. By switching characters in combat, players can experiment with elemental combos and master the art of striking down enemies with powerful chain reactions.

The final closed beta will see Genshin Impact arrive on PlayStation 4 for the first time. In co-op mode, teams of up to four players from across PlayStation 4, PC, and mobile will be able to hunt down monsters and delve into dungeons together, employing strategic combinations of skills and elements in battle.

Genshin Impact is due out for PlayStation 4, PC, iOS, and Android in 2020. A Switch version is also planned, but a release window has yet to be determined.
