Global Interactive entertainment developer & publisher – miHoYo announced today that the next Closed Beta for its highly-anticipated title – Genshin Impact – will be available on PC, iOS and Android platforms starting Q1 of 2020. The beta registration officially started today on the Genshin Impact website.
Genshin Impact is an open-world action-RPG title set in the fantasy realm of Teyvat, which offers a vivid, freely- explorable world, multiple characters, an in-depth elemental combo-based combat system and an engaging story. As a mysterious figure referred to as “The Traveler”, players will embark on a journey of finding their long-lost sibling to piece together their own mystery, while unraveling Teyvat’s many secrets. Joined by a lively companion called Paimon, players will explore the land filled with varied landscapes, culturally-diverse towns, and treacherous dungeons. By mastering the power of the seven elements with a custom party of up to 4 characters, players will overcome merciless foes and fiendish puzzles.
In the initial Closed Beta test, Genshin Impact revealed Mondstadt – the City of Wind (Anemo) with a variety of adventures, stories, and characters. This time, Genshin Impact builds on Teyvat, with an all-new story in Liyue Harbor – the City of Rock (Geo), that whisks traveler away to a new, eastern-inspired locale. There, players will find an immersive gameplay experience featuring breathtaking aesthetic design, content-rich discovery, brand new characters and an in-depth skill and talent system.
Being the richest city of the seven nations, Liyue Harbor shines like jade in the east. Legend says that the God of Geo drove out the ancient sea monsters of this once barren land and taught its first inhabitants to smelt metals and ores. He then encouraged them to open trade with other cities. Thanks to the diligent efforts made by several generations, ships carrying wealth from all over the world converge in Liyue Harbor nowadays, making it the most prosperous port city in Teyvat.
Liyue Harbor can be seen after passing through Mt. Tianheng. From there, tightly clustered ships and flows of people could be mistaken for woven threads. Beyond the bustle of the docks, towards Feiyun Slope, many appealing pavilions and kiosks from a faraway time welcome visitors from everywhere. Hidden in the gardens of Yujing Terrace, the majestic Yuehai Pavilion towers over the city.
Genshin Impact is set to showcase Liyue Harbor in the next Closed Beta to allow players an opportunity to understand the legend of the Geo Archon and unveil the secrets of this gorgeous city starting Q1 of 2020 on PC, iOS and Android.
