If you’ve been spending on Primogems and not getting that dream 5-star pull, well now you can spend more on your next-gen console as the PlayStation 5 version of Genshin Impact will finally drop on April 28, bringing with it 4K support, enhanced textures, and faster loading times.

The announcement on the PlayStation Blog also details the arrival of the much awaited v1.5 update entitled “Beneath the Light of Jadeite”, introducing a ton of new content and new characters.

Headlining the update are the addition of the new characters, Eula and Yanfei. Eula is the Captain of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company and is a Cryo Claymore user, while Yanfei is a young half-human, half-illuminated beast and is a 4-star Pyro Catalyst user.

You’ll also be facing up against new foes, such as Azhdaha the “Lord of Vishaps” and the Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning.

Genshin Impact is now available for the PS4, PC, and Mobile. The PlayStation 5 version is coming on April 28.
