Genshin Impact is coming to the Epic Games Store next week
The mega-popular free-to-play RPG Genshin Impact caused a stir when it was released in September 2020, although it isn’t available on any of the usual storefronts: if you want to play, your only option is to do so directly through the MiHoYo site. That will change next week, however, when Genshin Impact debuts on June 9 on the Epic Games Store.
“While developing Genshin Impact, one of our main goals has been to make the game available on a wide range of platforms so that players can play on their own or with friends, however they choose. to play it, ”said MiHoYo President Forrest Liu. “The Epic Games Store is an expert in PC games, and we are privileged to work with Epic to bring Genshin Impact to a larger global gaming community. “
The Epic Games Store release will come alongside the launch of the Big Update 1.6, which will include new characters, a new Archon Quest, and a new region called Inazuma that is said to be more hostile than other areas of the game. Also been confirmed as a new mode of transport, and players will finally be able to invite companions to move into their Magic Teapot Houses, once they complete the global Idle Teapot Talk quest, that is.
Genshin Impact on the Epic Store will be compatible with PlayStation, Android, iOS and standalone PC versions, and players will be able to claim a free in-game bonus for a limited time starting June 9. (Use the redemption code “GenshinEpic.”)
Genshin Impact is now available for Wish List on the Epic Games Store. There is no indication that this is happening on other storefronts, namely Steam, at this point, but I have reached out to MiHoYo to ask if it is possible and will update if I receive a response.
