If you are very eager to get stuck into your adventures in Genshin Impact and explore Teyvat, then you don’t have long to wait. The game will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Android, and iOS on September 28 in Japan. This is good news for folks in America, as it means you will actually get to play the game on September 27 thanks to a global release.

Genshin Impact will launch at 19:00 PT and 22:00 ET in America and should go live on all platforms at that time. Being an MMO, and a pretty hyped up one, we strongly expect there to be plenty of server issues on launch day. If you want to get ahead of the pack, you can preload the game to make sure you are as prepared as possible on launch day.

You will be searching for your lost sibling, going on quests, fighting monsters, and discovering secrets. The gameplay has been likened to Breath of the Wild, the smash-hit Nintendo Switch title, and the game really does look quite stunning.

We will be jumping in on launch day, and we’ll have plenty of guides and helpful articles on the site, so be sure to check back if you need some help with your in-game adventures.
