▍About “Genshin Impact”
“Genshin Impact” is set in Teyvat, a fantasy world where seven elements flow and converge. Players will play as the travellers, forming a part of four to start adventure in this open world. Players can also switch characters in real-time battles. The game starts a closed beta test for PC and smartphones in June 2019.
“Genshin Impact” raised controversy for its similarities to “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.” Its first trailer revealed that it does borrow heavily from “Zelda”, featuring similar gliding and climbing mechanics, elemental arrows, and enemies with similar aesthetic styles, on top of the obvious visual inspiration.
