Even before its release, the game was criticized heavily for being too similar to Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild during its initial announcement in 2019. Well in terms of graphics and world design the game shares striking similarities to Nintendo’s BOTW, but unlike having a linear progression like in BOTW, Genshin Impact features unique characters each tied to the main story progression and different gameplay mechanics, making it a unique game in its own.

At launch, there are a total of 23 playable characters (including the starting character) in the game, and each character features two unique combat skills: a normal and a special skill. Each character can be controlled by the player at any given point in the game. Additionally, each of the characters would have control of one of seven natural elements i.e  Cyro, Dendro, Pyro, Hydro, Anemo, Electro, and Geo. The normal skill can be used any time, while not on cooldown. Whereas the special skill would require players to amass sufficient elemental energy to use.
