The new action-RPG from Chinese gaming studio miHoYo, Genshin Impact, recently released across several platforms. Genshin Impact looks and plays a lot like Tales of Vesperia and other action-oriented JRPGs, but it\’s gotten a lot of attention for how much it also looks like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game released for PC, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android – and a Switch and next-gen versions of the game are planned for the near future. It features cross-play, meaning people can play with friends across platforms, but they\’ll have to unlock multiplayer first.

Despite multiplayer being unlocked fairly early in the game, developers of Genshin Impact have been hesitant to call the game a true MMORPG, even though it\’s an online RPG with multiplayer. Weird semantics aside, Genshin Impact is definitely a game people can play online with friends, as they take advantage of the game\’s open-world exploration and various dungeons.
