ChinaJoy 2019 begins today, and with it comes a whole host of games from China-based developers as the country’s biggest gaming expo runs the whole weekend. There are tons of games that are featured, so be sure to stick around for our coverage of everything announced at this event, especially seeing as China is starting to gain footing in video game development – and that means more great games for everyone.

miHoYo’s appearance at this big event was one of the most anticipated, as the Chinese studio will be showcasing their latest and most ambitious project to date – Genshin Impact, a third-person, open-world RPG with a grand sense of scale that’s often compared to Breath of the Wild. The title was first announced back in June, and despite the cheekiness of its presentation, I found myself interested enough to sign up for the closed beta that was held during the same month.

The developer also announced that along with the planned releases for PC, iOS and Android devices, Genshin Impact will also launch for the PS4 in 2020. Check out the trailer for the PlayStation 4 version below, which also showcases the world of Teyvat.

This newest trailer features Amber, a knight who is also one of the characters in the game. There’s a big showcase of the environments you will be travelling in, as well as showing off some of the monsters you will be fighting – oddly enough, the first batch I saw highly reminded me of Bobokins. Once the over-the-top anime abilities came crashing down though, I knew this was a miHoYo title, as it’s comparable to their smartphone game Honkai Impact 3rd.

The footage also shows a large-scale battle between a team of players versus a wind dragon, which looks superbly done. Genshin Impact features a heavy focus on these kinds of multiplayer team fights, which could be the best selling point it has right now for players looking for a one-of-a-kind experience that’s still inspired by Breath of the Wild.

ChinaJoy 2019 will run from August 2 to August 5. Expect more coverage from us as soon as it is announced.
