Today MiHoYo announced with a press release the final closed beta of its upcoming game Genshin Impact.
The beta will start in Q3 2020 and will include PS4 on top of PC and mobile platforms.
Perhaps most exciting is the fact that the new beta will include cross-platform co-op gameplay, which lets players from all platforms involved team-up.
The press release included a comment from the producer Hugh Tsai.
“We are thrilled to see that players all around the world had a blast in Genshin Impact’s last Closed Beta while offering valuable feedback on various aspects of the game. We plan to implement some changes and optimizations in the Final Closed Beta based on what we have heard and learned.
The cross-platform co-op mode is an important component of Genshin Impact, and it will be a core part of the Final Closed Beta experience. We are very excited to see how players react to the team-oriented gameplay.”
If you’re unfamiliar with Genshin Impact, it’s an open-world RPG that will also be coming to Switch at some point. Here’s a brief description.
“Genshin Impact is an open-world action-RPG title set in the vast fantasy world of Teyvat. It features a lively open world, multiple characters, element-based combat and exploration, and an engaging story. Players take on the role of the mysterious “Traveler,” who embarks on a journey to find their lost sibling and unravels many mysteries of Teyvat along the way.”
Registrations for the beta are available at the official site.
