“The PlayStation 5 is an ideal platform to enhance the big open world of Genshin Impact and to allow the team to incorporate more thoughts and ideas into the game now and in the future,” said miHoYo President Forrest Liu in a statement. “That’s why we’ve worked to bring the native PlayStation 5 version of the game to our players as quickly as possible.”

The game’s latest update, version 1.3, was released in early 2021 and included a seasonal event revolving around Teyvat’s New Year for travelers to celebrate one of Liyue’s oldest traditions – the lantern rite.
