Genshin Impact is one of 2020’s most visually impressive mobile games—but that’s only part of the story behind this worldwide hit.

Launched in September, the highly anticipated multiplatform role-playing game quickly became the talk of the town. Gamers leaped at the chance to explore enormous open-world kingdoms on both console and mobile devices.

Flung into the curious land of Teyvat by a wrathful deity, you embark on a journey to locate your lost sibling. But with countless treasures to discover, quests to undertake, and powerful heroes to recruit, there’s far more to the mystery.

Genshin Impact is home to all sorts of fantastical creatures—some friendlier than others.

To thrive in this massive realm you’ll harness the power of nature’s energy. Well-timed wind blasts send fire rippling. Freeze spells lock foes in place. Mixing and matching elements turns pulse-pounding battles against pesky goblin hordes, slippery slime creatures, and towering dragons into opportunities for discovery. What happens when you combine an earth spell with a fire spell? There’s only one way to find out.

It’s all executed impeccably. Genshin Impact’s cutting-edge visual effects transform each fight into a graphical spectacle. Whether you’re foraging for cooking ingredients, gliding over craggy hills, or battling fierce boss monsters with other players, every inch of the game’s lovingly crafted world feels intentional and important.

It’s still expanding too. Vast stretches of the war-torn continent have been sealed off (developer MiHoYo says these will be slowly revealed), enticing players with untold adventures. What does the future hold? We can’t wait to find out.
