Genshin Impact Free to Play on September 28


One of my favorite highlights from attending Pax East 2020, other than coming home without contracting COVID19, would be the experience of getting to playing Genshin Impact. While we didn’t get to cover the game as much as we hoped during the event we did get a bit of exposure which really got us excited.

Developed and Published by miHoYo, Genshin Impact is an open-world action RPG title that is set to release next month on September 28th for PC, Android, and iOS. This upcoming free-to-play title will allow players to roam the vast lands of an exotic world alone or adventure with friends in cross-platform co-op mode.

Guys this game is absolutely beautiful with a fun and easy to love storyline. And I can promise you hours and hours of gameplay. While the story itself has enough to keep you busy, the side quests and adventures you can go on really add to the experience. The game takes place in a massive fantasy continent called Teyvat, which offers a lively open world, multiple characters, element-based combat and exploration, and an engaging story. And the developers did not hold back, pretty much everything you see can be interacted with or climbed so don’t hesitate to explore to your heart’s content. 

You start the game off as a mysterious “Traveler”, setting off the voyage of finding their lost sibling, and ultimately unravels the mysteries of themselves and the world. Along the way, you will encounter additional characters and add them to your team. Gaining access to their abilities and talents will aid you in your travels to find your lost sibling. 

As a free-to-play online title, Genshin Impact enables players to explore Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor – two of the seven major cities in Teyvat – each with unique cultural ambiance, stories, vast surrounding landscapes full of diverse creatures and enemies, mysteries, and hidden treasures. Furthermore, the game will continue to expand with more cities, following stories, new characters and seasonal events through live-service updates to enrich the gameplay and expedition in the continent of Teyvat.

Genshin Impact offers both the classic single-player mode and the cross-platform co-op mode for up to four players. Pre-registration on Google Play and Apple App Store has opened today, and all players can invite friends to pre-register together via Genshin Impact’s official website at to participate the pre-registration campaign to claim a slew of milestone rewards.

Developed and published by miHoYo, Genshin Impact will be available September 28th on Apple’s App Store, Google Play Store and Genshin Impact’s official website. Genshin Impact has been rated T for Teen for PC by ESRB, 9+ on iOS and 12+ on Google Play. The game is also coming to PlayStation®4 this fall, and the release date will be revealed later.
