Genshin Impact was always a super impressive game, but I’m very pleased with the pace of new content coming in. I hope Sony and miHoYo can eventually allow players on mobile and PC to bring over progress between platforms including PlayStation. I’m also very curious to see how the game expands next year with the Nintendo Switch version. If you’re interested in checking it out, you can download Genshin Impact on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here for free. The PC version is available on the official website here. It is just under 12GB on PC. If you want to play across different platforms, read this.
