The Chinese-made action-adventure game Genshin Impact, renowned for being a “Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild knockoff” that got a bunch of manchildren breaking their PS4s for some reason, will be out soon this year.

Developer miHoYo just announced its release date: 28th September for PC, iOS, and Android. The PS4 version will be out Fall 2020. There will also be a Nintendo Switch version, but there’s no release window as of yet.

Since Genshin Impact is a free-to-play game, you can start your pre-registration and get the following rewards when it launches:

  • 600,000 pre-registrations
    • Fisherman’s Toast (x5)
    • Mora (x10,000)
  • One million pre-registrations
    • Cream Stew (x5)
    • Fine Enhancement Ore (x10)
  • 1.5 million pre-registrations
    • Mondstadt Hash Brown (x5)
    • Adventurer’s Experience (x10)
  • Two million pre-registrations
    • Acquaint Fate (x2)
  • Three million pre-registrations
    • Acquaint Fate (x4)

As a bonus, players will get Acquaint Fate (x2) if the game’s YouTube page hits 150k subscribers, and an additional Acquaint Fate (x2) if its Facebook page reaches 100k likes.

What does Genshin Impact offer? For the price of nothing and your time, you’ll get a massive open world to explore, a nifty elemental combat system and co-op mode, some lovely aesthetics, and most likely some paywalls that unlock inventory space and other cosmetics. Guess we’ll truly find out later once it’s out this September.

I’ll bet that weapons won’t be breaking and cliffsides won’t be climbed to death, that’s for sure.
