The native PS5 version of Genshin Impact will be launching next week, alongside the game’s major 1.5 update, and it looks like a developer miHoYo is all about the next-gen experience. Much of the game’s underlying technology has been revamped to provide a sharper, more polished experience both now and in the future. You can get an overview of the changes coming in the video below.
The PlayStation 5 hardware provides an ideal platform to experience Genshin Impact, making Teyvat’s world even more detailed, vibrant and immersive. That’s why we wanted to bring the PS5 version to players as soon as possible. At the same time, we’ve worked on developing several features to take full advantage of this next-generation console in the long run: we’ve built a graphics library completely from scratch and we’ve built a custom file loading system to take advantage from the PS5’s powerful SSD. So in future updates we’ll have a lot more potential to improve visual quality and game performance – we’re just scratching the surface.
You can check out a larger portion of the Genshin Impact 4K PS5 gameplay below, showing off silky smooth performance in previously challenging areas like Mondstadt Village, a vastly improved draw distance, super fast loading times and more. And yes, miHoYo has confirmed all of this is coming in native 4K. Perhaps most interesting of all, part of the game, the towering overcast Qingyun Peak, has been given a visual makeover exclusive to the PS5. I wonder if areas that look better on PS5 become a normal thing? Watch the full video for yourself below.
Genshin Impact is currently available on PC, PS4 and mobile platforms. The PS5 version of the game will launch on April 28, alongside the game’s 1.5 update, which will add a number of new characters, additional story content, and more.
