Genshin Impact allows players to link their mobile account with their PC account, creating a seamless link between the two platforms. Doing this is required for those players that want to enjoy the cross-save functionality built into the game, and is actually a simple and painless process.

Genshin Impact is currently available on Mobile, PC, and PS4, with a Switch port on the way in the near future. While the mobile experience is great for playing on the go and doing some light farming, it lacks the ease of control and larger screen that players have with PC and PS4. To accommodate for this, players will need to link their PC and Mobile accounts.

At the time of writing, there is currently no cross-save functionality on PS4. While the Mobile and PC versions can be switched between with minimal effort, players are stuck on PS4 for the time being if that\’s where they made their account initially. With any luck, that will change in the future, perhaps when Genshin Impact comes to Switch.

To link accounts, players first need to log into the game from their PC or mobile device. While in game, open up the main menu and select the settings menu (looks like a gear). Click account and then User Center, and search for the email option. Clicking on this will send an email to the email address associated with the account, allowing fans to verify their email address. Enter the code found within the email in the verification section in game and the PC and Mobile versions of Genshin Impact should now be linked.

This will allow for players to adventure with the same save file whether they\’re playing on PC or Mobile, giving them the best of both worlds in terms of portability and performance. Players having trouble with this step are also able to make the link using their social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple, and even Game Center. This process is done in the Linked Accounts tab of the options menu and uses similar steps to linking with email address.

Unfortunately, there\’s still been no word about when linked accounts will be possible on the PS4. That said, Genshin Impact confirmed a PS5 upgrade version coming soon, so it\’s possible that the feature will be added then as well. Until that time, PS4 players will have to make a separate account should they want to play on PC or Mobile.
