[Closed Beta register] Global developer & publisher miHoYo announced today that the next Closed Beta for its highly-anticipated title, Genshin Impact, will be available on PC, iOS and Android platforms in the first quarter of 2020. Closed Beta registration has officially started today on the Genshin Impact website. Genshin Impact is an open-world action-RPG title set in the fantasy realm of Teyvat, which offers a vivid, freely- explorable world, multiple characters, in-depth elemental combo-based combat and a truly engaging story.
As a mysterious figure referred to as “The Traveler”, players will embark on a journey of finding their long-lost sibling to piece together their own mystery, while unraveling Teyvat’s many secrets. Joined by a lively companion called Paimon, players will explore the land filled with varied landscapes, culturally-diverse towns, and treacherous dungeons. By mastering the power of the 7 elements with a custom party of up to 4 characters, players will overcome merciless foes and fiendish puzzles. In the first Closed Beta, Genshin Impact revealed Mondstadt, the City of Wind, with a variety of adventures, stories, and characters.
Now, Genshin Impact follows up with a new story in Liyue Harbor, the City of Rock, whisking travelers away to an eastern-inspired locale. Here, players will find an immersive gameplay experience featuring breathtaking aesthetic design, rich content, new characters, and an in-depth skill and talent system. As the richest city of the 7 nations, Liyue Harbor shines like a jade in the east. Legend says that the God of Geo drove out the ancient sea monsters of this once-barren land and taught its first inhabitants to smelt metals and ores.
He then encouraged them to open trade with other cities. Thanks to the efforts made by several generations, ships carrying wealth from all over the world converge in Liyue Harbor nowadays, making it the most prosperous port city in Teyvat. Liyue Harbor can be seen after passing through Mt. Tianheng. From there, tightly clustered ships and flow of people could be mistaken for woven threads. Beyond the bustle of the docks, towards Feiyun Slope, many appealing pavilions and kiosks from a faraway time welcome all visitors. Hidden in the gardens of Yujing Terrace, the majestic Yuehai Pavilion towers over the city.
