Upcoming action-RPG Genshin Impact recently received its latest gameplay trailer during Sony’s State of Play conference, showing off the world’s large and interactive open world. Developed by MiHoYo, the studio behind Gun GirlZ, Genshin Impact is an open world anime-RPG with a unique elemental-based party system. The trailer showed off some of the varying locations players will explore throughout the game’s story, including huge forests and plains filled with camps of enemy monsters. Similar in style to the mechanics of the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, players will be able to climb cliffs, fight camps of enemies throughout the world and explore a huge open world with any of the members of their party. The latest gameplay trailer also showed off a variety of the abilities that players will be able to equip to the customizable characters in their parties of up to four.
According to the developer Zhenzhong, players will be able to utilize a number of these elements, “in the world of Teyvat, you have control over seven natural elements—Pyro, Hydro, Electro, Anemo, and Dendro, to name a few. Through unique relics called Visions, characters have unique powerful abilities that you can unleash to take powerful foes head-on and interact with the world.”
The recently concluded Sony – State of Play broadcast confirmed that open-world action RPG Genshin Impact will officially release on PlayStation®4 this fall 2020.
