The open-world Gachi game will be going next-gen on Sony’s PlayStation 5 next week along with several graphics enhancements and a completely redesigned Qingyun Peak exclusively for PS5 players.
Genshin’s developer miHoYo has also developed a customized file loading system to take advantage of the PS5’s SSD as well as a completely new graphics library for much better visuals. Genshin’s next-gen version will also take full advantage of the dual sense controller as the control scheme has been redesigned for immersive haptic feedback, something that was lacking from the backward compatible PS4 version.
