Softonic review

Action role-playing video game

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play role-playing game developed by miHoYo. The game takes place in a fictional, mythical world called Teyvat. In this dimension, certain individuals are granted a Vision by the gods. Visions are magical gemstones that give their bearer the ability to control an element. You will start out as a Traveler who is searching for a lost sibling. It is up to you if you want to be a female or male version of the main character. 

What kind of game is Genshin Impact?

Genshin Impact takes place in Teyvat, a world blessed by seven Elemental Archons. In the distant past, the Archons granted mortals unique elemental abilities which allowed them to form a bountiful homeland out of the wilderness. However, the collapse of Teyvat has turned the universe upside down. The suffering has since ceased and the lands are slowly healing but peace has yet to be restored in Mondstadt, the City of Wind.

One of the Seven Archons' agents, the Fatui, has been oppressing the surrounding city-states under the guise of protection. You have woken up in Teyvat as a mortal without any idea of just where your sibling could be. As you find a way home, you will meet new characters and find out more about The Seven. It’s important to be on the lookout for clues as they will unearth something miraculous.

In this open-world game, you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled. You will also need to engage in real-time combat and forage for sustenance to boost your stats. As the story progresses, you will be able to play as the characters—or with other players—you meet along the way. Every Genshin Impact character has its own unique personality and special ability. Together, they will undertake quests to know more about the primordial gods of their world.

They're not easy to get, though, as some 5-star characters like Albedo and Eula are available for a limited time only. Fortunately, the second Wish Event banner type allows returning characters to be available much more frequently. This is great since some characters, like Gorou and Arataki Itto, have element-specific abilities that would make them formidable opponents for the dreaded enemy boss, the Golden Wolflord.

Grand addition to the RPG genre

Genshin Impact has similar elements to another action-adventure game called The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While this game also allows you to experience the world’s mythos, you will have full control over your first character, the Traveler, and the game’s other 30+ characters. Another difference is that cities and towns play a larger role in the storyline than BotW.
