Genshin Impact is an action role-playing game (RPG). It features an open world environment and action-based battle system using elemental magic and character switching.

Since its release in 2020, the game has been free-to-play. It is monetized through gacha game mechanics, where players can obtain new weapons, characters and other resources.

Genshin Impact takes place in the fantasy world of Teyvat, which is home to seven distinct nations. Each nation is tied to an element and ruled by a god associated with it.

The story follows a twin, known as the Traveler, who has travelled across various worlds but became separated from their sibling in Teyvat.

The Traveler travels the worlds in search of their lost sibling, alongside their companion, Paimon. However, he soon becomes involved in the affairs of Teyvat’s nations and gods.

The game continues to expand in 2021, with the team behind the hit action RPG preparing to launch its next major update on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, personal computer (PC) and mobile.
