Genshin Impact is an open-world action adventure gacha game from miHoYo, the creators of the hit mobile game franchise Honkai Impact. Set in a fantasy world full of gods and magic, it follows one of two angelic twins who get separated from each other after crossing a mysterious and powerful deity.
The similarities in style and mechanics to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are readily apparent. MiHoYo used that incredible game as a base upon which to build its own, and it absolutely works. It’s created both a fantastic single-player RPG and live-service co-op game that just happens to have the most unobtrusive gacha mechanics in recent memory, but after 25 hours of playtime I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface. Genshin Impact currently rivals one of the best games I’ve ever played, and they’re only just getting started.
Genshin Impact is out now on PC, Android, IOS, and PS4 for free.
