Genshin Impact is an open world action title that highlights its freely explorable world, multiple playable characters, an in-depth elemental combo-based combat system and an engaging story.
This exciting game aims to offer an immersive adventure experience with vast, breathtakingly beautiful landscapes, an engaging element-based combat system, a diverse cast of characters with richly developed stories, and offers both the classic single-player mode and the cross-platform co-op mode for up to four players.
You will take on the role of the mysterious “Traveler”, setting off the voyage of finding their lost sibling, and ultimately unravels the mysteries of themselves and the world.
But you won’t be alone—joining you is a lively companion called Paimon and together you will explore the land filled with varied landscapes, culturally – diverse towns, and treacherous dungeons. By mastering the power of the seven elements with a custom party of up to 4 characters, players will overcome merciless foes and fiendish puzzles.
This is a free-to-play online title, Genshin Impact that enables players to explore Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor – two of the seven major cities in Teyvat – each with unique cultural ambience, 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.
Even though Sumeru’s main storyline has come to an end, a new season of events and two powerful allies, the Wanderer and Faruzan, are ready to surprise players with more stories, fun, and challenges. Meanwhile, players will soon be able to duel NPCs, friends, and other players online for a round of Teyvat’s popular card game – Genius Invokation TCG.
Story-wise, long after being defeated as a man-made god in the Archon Quest main story, Scaramouche, now known as the Wanderer, will walk down a different path under Nahida’s custody.
In the new Archon Quest Interlude Chapter “Inversion of Genesis,” you will head to Irminsul with the powerful Wanderer to find out how the story unravels. The Wanderer will join the playable cast as a five-star Anemo catalyst wielder, and another character Faruzan will join the lineup as a new four-star Anemo archer.
The mighty Wanderer has been blessed with the ability to hover and attack in mid-air, and his power can be enhanced when coming into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro. Faruzan is an ageless Akademiya genius in mechanics. During combat, she wields a bow as her weapon and supports teammates by offering Anemo DMG Bonus effects while weakening opponents’ Anemo Resistance.
Together, the Wanderer, Faruzan, and Arataki Itto’s rerun will feature in the early stage of Version 3.3’s Event Wishes, and the latter half will see the rerun of Raiden Shogun and Kamisato Ayato. And as a trading card game, Genius Invokation TCG combines the fun of Genshin Impact’s element-based combat system with strategy development, allowing both players and NPCs to compete against each other with their collection of cards.
That’s not all—in a match of Genius Invokation, the winner must defeat all of their opponent’s Character Cards with Normal Attacks, Elemental Skills and Elemental Bursts of their own Character Cards. Therefore, skillfully swapping Character Cards to trigger Elemental Reactions and applying more buffs and effects with various Action Cards are vital to developing a winning strategy.
However, performing the above actions often consumes a certain number of Elemental Dice, thus making dice rolling at the beginning of each round an important variable of the game. With more NPC card players defeated, players may redeem more cards and Dynamic Skins from the Card Shop.
Additionally, even more fun events and challenges await ahead in Version 3.3. In the new seasonal special “Akitsu Kimodameshi,” players will meet with Arataki Itto to master a series of “brick-breaker” mini-games.
Another super-fun event called “Across the Wilderness” requires players to collect Wilderness Balloons within a limited time. What’s more, the classic hide-and-seek game “Windtrace” and the challenge event “Misty Dungeon” will return with fresh updates.
Genshin Impact is currently available for the PC. So, get those gaming PCs ready for action!
