miHoYo announces today that its open-world action RPG title, Genshin Impact, will launch its Final Closed Beta on 2 July 2020. With this closed beta will be cross-platform co-op mode, so players will be able to team up with friends on Playstation 4, PC and mobile.
Genshin Impact is an open-world action RPG title set in the expansive fantasy world of Teyvat. It offers a lively open world, a variety of characters, element-based combat and exploration, and an engaging story. Players take on the role of the mysterious “Traveler,” who sets off on a journey to find their lost sibling and ultimately unravels the many mysteries of Teyvat in addition to their own.
During the beta, players will be able to explore Mondstadt and Liyue — two of the seven major cities in Teyvat — as well as the vast surrounding landscape full of creatures to encounter, enemies to fight, mysteries to solve, and hidden treasures to find. Players can build their four-person party from a wide range of playable characters, using their varying combat styles and elemental abilities to overcome different obstacles in the world. By switching characters in combat, players can experiment with elemental combos and master the art of striking down enemies with powerful chain reactions.
Genshin Impact will be on PS4 for the first time with this final closed beta, with more players now able to hunt down monsters and delve into dungeons together, employing strategic combinations of skills and elements in battle.
The game is still expected for a 2020 release. You can check out our closed beta impressions from March 2020 to know what to expect.
