The game is online-only and features a limited multiplayer mode allowing up to four players to play together. It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Android and iOS on September 28, 2020.Genshin Impactis also planned to release on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 5; playability of the PlayStation 4 version on PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility was added on November 11, 2020.
It’s a pleasant surprise, delivering a sprawling, thoughtful world, and ingenious combat mechanics. Teyvat currently only features two regions out of the seven teased in the story, but developer Mihoyo has made it clear that a new region, new characters, and all new content are just around the corner.
