The news came along a new trailer for the game, which really shows off that it’s basically Breath of the Waifu. It looks like a free to play version of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and to be totally honest, I’m kinda here for it. Right now at least.
A description via YouTube:
In the distant continent of Teyvat, the seven elements — Anemo, Pyro, Electro, Cryo, Hydro, Dendro, and Geo — converge. Those chosen by the gods are granted Visions, with which they can control the elements in nature. You, a mysterious traveler, are about to embark on epic adventures in this free world. You will master the various elements throughout your journey, during which amazing friends with diverse abilities will join you along the way. Together, you will fight mighty enemies, find your lost kin, and unravel the riddles of the world of Genshin Impact.
Experience the Open World: Soar across boundless lands, cross towering mountain ranges, and swim in vast oceans and lakes. Go forth and discover the secrets of a world full of mysteries and miracles — your adventure awaits!
Master the Elements: On the vast continent of Teyvat, the elements will be your best friend when it comes to defeating powerful foes and solving puzzles! Unexpected rewards also await those skilled in making use of the extraordinary reactions between the elements.
Summon Redoubtable Allies: No great adventure is complete without companions. Genshin Impact’s official release comes with over 20 characters boasting unique styles and abilities for you to experience, with more to come in the future!
Team Up Across Platforms: Genshin Impact isn’t just a single-player experience. If you ever feel lonely or need help to defeat a particularly challenging enemy, you can invite friends from across different platforms (PlayStation®/iOS/Android/PC) to join your world and adventure together in Co-Op Mode!
Genshin Impact is also coming to iOS, Android and PC later this year, and eventually to Nintendo Switch.
