An Overview of Gameplay

Genshin Impact is a gacha-based adventure game by miHoYo that puts you in a stunningly massive world. You can climb mountains, swim across rivers and glide over the insanely beautiful world. It heavily relies on the storyline that sees you setting out to find your lost sibling. Consequently, it involves plenty of exploration and battles that are based on a unique elemental system that requires both “brain and brawn.” This brings us to the detailed campaign mode that takes you on a journey across seven cities of Teyvat, that’s what the massive open world is named.

Next, is the Elemental combat system that divides the energy into seven different elements i.e., Anemo, Electro, Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, Dendro, and Geo. You can harness the energies using the elemental reaction and empower your team. This brings up to a rich Genshin Impact team system where you can team up with a diverse cast of characters in Teyvat. Each character is unique in personality, story, and skill set. The key is to make a perfect combination after analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of each character. At first, you will have access to campaign mode and two cities, whereas the rest will land in a possible future update.
