Genshin Impact Launches On PS5 Alongside Version 1.5 On April 28
Genshin Impact, Mihoyo’s widely-popular cross-platform MMORGP, is coming to the PlayStation 5 on April 28. The PS5 version will feature faster loading times, improved textures, and 4K resolution support, all the better to see your adorable waifu’s with.
Version 1.5, dubbed Beneath the Light of Jadeite, will also be arriving alongside the game’s PS5 release. Version 1.5 will give players another chance to unlock the Geo-character Zhongli along with two new characters: Eula, the captain of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company, and Yanfei, the half-human legal advisor.
Eula is a claymore-wielding 5-star character that can deal AoE Cryo damage to enemies using her elemental skills and her exploding Lightfall Sword. Yanfei, on the other hand, is a 4-star Pyro who can use a stackable buff to reduce her stamina consumption and increase the damage and range of her charged attacks at the same time.
In addition to new characters, Version 1.5 will also introduce a new Trounce domain along with new enemies and bosses to defeat, including a new Dragonspine boss.
Player housing will also be introduced in Version 1.5 which can be accessed using the new Serenitea Pot. The pot will transport players to their Homeworld which will feature either a Liyue or Mondstadt-themed building. Buildings will have several built-in rooms and plenty of outdoor space that players can decorate to their liking.
Furniture and décor can be unlocked using furniture blueprints and can be crafted using wood and other required materials. The more furnishings placed in the Homeworld, the more Realm Currency it will generate, which in turn can be used to purchase more furnishings from the new Furniture Shop.
You’ll find the official Version 1.5 trailer tucked away below. More information can also be found on the Genshin Impact official site.
