Genshin Impact release date: you can now pre-order

Here's everything you should know about the Genshin Impact release date

As the Genshin Impact release date draws closer, anticipation for the Breath of the Wild inspired RPG is starting to swell. This swell may turn into a flood after the developer, Mihoyo announced that Genshin Impact’s release date is September 28, 2020, and you can now pre-register on Android and iOS.

You can certainly see developer Mihoyo’s appreciation for Breath of the Wild in Genshin Impact’s art direction, but there are plenty of new ideas worth noting, too. Aside from the characters more anime-like appearance, the combat looks to be more hack-and-slash focused. That’s not hugely surprising if you’ve played Mihoyo’s last game Honkai Impact 3rd. There are also more cities to explore and inhabit when you’re not out exploring and slapping baddies with your sword. An expansive, beautiful Breath of the Wild-style world with button-mashing combat is a simple sell, but we’re intrigued nonetheless.

So we’re rounding up everything we know, so you can have a one-stop spot to get all the latest details. Now that’s out of the way, here’s everything we know about Genshin Impact’s release date, beta, and more.
