The game was first announced in June for PC, iOS, and Android but now PlayStation 4 players will be able to join in on the fun as well. Here is what Mihoyo co-founder Wei Liu had to say about the game coming to PS4:
This first ever partnership between Mihoyo and PlayStation will let us bring Genshin Impact to the broad community of console players, while also welcome players from other platforms to PlayStation. We will be continuing to optimize the PlayStation version of the game to ensure a smooth gameplay experience and adding exclusive content to the platform. We look forward to working with PlayStation and listening to feedback from PlayStation® players to help us further improve Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact is an open world action game set in the fantasy world called “Teyvat”, offering players a freely explorable world, multiple playable characters, an in-depth elemental combo-based combat system and an engaging story. As a mysterious figure called “The Traveler”, players will embark on a journey of exploring the world filled with secrets, encountering distinct characters, defeating new adversaries and ultimately reuniting with their lost kin. The game has completed its first Closed Beta Test on iOS and PC to great success and is planning to have new beta test phases in the future.

The epic backstory and lore will enrich your thirst for more knowledge about this magical universe…
