Genshin Impact, the free-to-play action RPG, set for a September 28 PS4 release

As announced on the PlayStation Blog, Genshin Impact will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 on September 28, the same day it launches on the PC and Mobile devices as well. It is a free-to-play open world action RPG that, if you remember, was heavily maligned because it bore a striking resemblance to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While it does have some similarities, extensive gameplay footage show marked differences as well.

The overview of the game reads as follows:

In Genshin Impact, you play as a mysterious being known as the Traveler. After you are suddenly separated from your sibling, you find yourself stripped of your former powers and helplessly stranded in a new unfamiliar world. You have arrived in Teyvat — a fantasy world where the seven elements flow and converge. But you are not alone. Here you will embark on an epic journey to find your lost sibling and unravel the many mysteries of this world, meeting a host of faithful companions along the way as well as powerful enemies who seek to challenge your quest.

The PlayStation version will have exclusive content along with a pre-order bundle that will give you a headstart in the world of Teyvat. PlayStation owners will get the “Sword of Descension” and “Wings of Descension” items that will require some gameplay to unlock. North American pre-orders are live as well for $9.99.

You can access the game via the PSN storefront of your respective region. For PC, head on over HERE. For mobile devices, HERE for iOS and HERE for Android.

Genshin Impact will releasing for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Mobile Devices on September 28.
