The PS5 version of ‘Genshin Impact’ gets its first look, but there’s no word on the Switch or Xbox versions
Genshin Impact Switch : Since its release, Genshin Impact has been playable on PlayStation 5, however most gamers have only played the PlayStation 4 version. This is about to change.
Sony and miHoYo have shown off a preview of the full-fledged PS5 version of Genshin Impact, which will be released “soon,” according to Sony, which says “soon” means “within the next two months.”
Faster load times, better visuals, and DualSense controller support will be among the game’s upgrades.
There’s a new trailer for this announcement, but it’s difficult to discern the difference between it and the regular edition of the game without seeing them side by side.
Even though loading speeds on the PS5’s SSD are already quick, they should get even faster.
Support for DualSense is hit or miss for me. I like the targeted rumble effects with DualSense, but I really don’t like the adaptive triggers, so I’m hoping that’s not too severe, or at the very least that they’ll have a setting to tone down those effects if they’ve crafted them for each character or something along those lines, as we’ve seen in other games.
The release of Genshin Impact on PS5 raises worries about the game’s availability on other platforms.
Players on the Nintendo Switch, in particular, have believed that the game is a no-brainer for the system, and that if it can run on mobile devices, there should be no problem porting it to the Switch.
And Xbox users are baffled as to why Genshin is only available to Sony gamers, limiting the game’s appeal in regions like the United States, where Xbox is more popular than Asia.
All of this indicates to a possible exclusivity agreement between miHoYo and Sony, albeit no such agreement has been officially revealed and no one knows the specific details.
MiHoYo has already stated that they have no intentions to release the game to Xbox, implying that there would be no temporal exclusivity. Perhaps they simply don’t…wish to?
It’s a peculiar situation. Meanwhile, Genshin is rumoured to be coming to Switch at some point, but we haven’t heard anything about it since before pre-release, leaving fans perplexed.
For the time being, it’s mobile, PC, PS4, and, eventually, PS5. We don’t have a firm date for the PS5’s release, but my best guess is that it will happen around the time Update 1.5 is released in mid-May.
