Today developer MiHoYo reached out with a press release to give the first details about the upcoming beta test of its Open-World Action RPG Genshin Impact
The test will happen in Q1 2020 (which means it’s quite close, even if there is no specific date just yet), and it’ll be on PC and mobile platforms.
The game is also coming for PS4 and Nintendo Switch, but console platforms won’t be included in the next beta. That being said, the press release mentions that there will be more phases before release.
Genshin Impact is scheduled to launch for PC, PS4, Switch, iOS, and Android in late 2020, so there’s still plenty of time.
As a matter of fact, the press release mentions “PlayStation” instead of PS4, but at the moment we don’t know if this is a hint to an upcoming release on PS5 as well. We reached out to MiHoYo to hear if they have anything to share on the topic.
Alongside the press release, we got the new official key artwork and some lovely art, which you can see below.
