How does it Work?


Step into Teyvat, a vast world teeming with life and flowing with elemental energy. You and your sibling arrived here from another world. Separated by an unknown god, stripped of your powers, and cast into a deep slumber, you now awake to a world very different from when you first arrived. Thus begins your journey across Teyvat to seek answers from The Seven — the gods of each element. Along the way, prepare to explore every inch of this wondrous world, join forces with a diverse range of characters, and unravel the countless mysteries that Teyvat holds... MASSIVE OPEN WORLD Climb any mountain, swim across any river, and glide over the world below, taking in the jaw-dropping scenery each step of the way. And if you stop to investigate a wandering Seelie or strange mechanism, who knows what you might discover? ELEMENTAL COMBAT SYSTEM Harness the seven elements to unleash elemental reactions. Anemo, Electro, Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, Dendro, and Geo interact in all sorts of ways, and Vision wielders have the power to turn this to their advantage. Will you vaporize Hydro with Pyro, electro-charge it with Electro, or freeze it with Cryo? Your mastery of the elements will give you the upper hand in battle and exploration. BEAUTIFUL VISUALS Feast your eyes on the world around you, with a stunning art style, real-time rendering, and finely tuned character animations delivering you a truly immersive visual experience. Lighting and weather change naturally over time, bringing every detail of Teyvat to life. SOOTHING SOUNDTRACK Let the beautiful sounds of Teyvat draw you in as you explore this expansive world. Performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the soundtrack changes seamlessly with the time and gameplay to match the mood. BUILD YOUR DREAM TEAM Team up with a diverse cast of characters, each with unique personalities, stories, and abilities. Discover your favorite party combinations and level up your characters to help you vanquish even the most daunting of enemies. JOURNEY WITH FRIENDS Play together with friends across various platforms to trigger more elemental action, tackle tricky boss fights, and conquer challenging domains together to reap rich rewards. As you stand atop the peaks of Jueyun Karst and take in the rolling clouds and vast terrain stretching out before you, you may wish to stay in Teyvat a little longer... But until you are reunited with your lost sibling, how can you rest? Go forth, Traveler, and begin your adventure!

  • Super addicting


    By dontunderestimateme
    I wish I found out about this game later when more stuff is released, that way I could grind for that much longer. I’m AR 37 and this game is super fun. I’ve spent an average of 5 hours or so everyday playing this game since I got it. I loved BOTW, it was one of my fave games, and this was obviously inspired by it, but other parts of Genshin make it unique in its own way. Great character personalities and designs, great story, and funny, interesting dialogue, entertaining gameplay... this is why it’s so addicting. I love Childe and Xiao they’re so cute. And I would’ve expected Paimon to be annoying, but she is actually really fun to have as my guide and her sassy attitude is amazing lol. Despite the traveler being silent, his replies are sassy and hilarious as well— to Paimon and to other characters in general. I’m glad his voice was added in the the voice over section of the game with Paimon. UGH, this game is just so good and I’m going to be sad once I run out of things to do on it since the game is so new. My only complaint is the ridiculous rates on Gacha. They’re not kidding when it says the chance to get a five star is .6 percent or whatever. At least make it 1 percent because dang... also, make artifacts and weapons a little bit more accessible as well. Otherwise, this is one of the best mobile games I’ve ever played. I’m happy for Mihoyo’s huge success in sales in this game as well! I’m so grateful for u guys and keep producing great content!! 💖💖
  • Great game !


    By 😼stay mad trump
    The graphics and story to this game is beautiful. I play up to five hours each day for the past maybe month and a half and there is SO much content. I do see a lot of people complaining about a few things so I felt the need to kind of clear it up. Lots say its laggy and doesn’t load well but that’s because this game is so big. It’s really a PC game so on your phone its difficult to run since the game is open world and has so many components. I went from mobile > PC and the graphics were WAAAY better and I had zero lag and way easier controls. I’ve also seen people complaining about archers and how they don't like aim mode because apparently they don't like having to hold down to aim and charge up each shot, but there is an option to lock aim mode and just tap when you want to shoot which is easier. It took me awhile to find this out so I hope it helps. Only thing I find annoying is that you have to wait for a specific day to get materials you need from a domain and that sometimes they make challenges or combat quests a little too overwhelming. I understand they are meant to be challenging but I once took at least and hour trying complete a puzzle which was a very small room with a hydro abyss mage, two large hydro slimes and a cryo and electro range hilichurl. I kept getting cornered, stunned and froze over and over and it was timed, so it was a little frustrating but I eventually got it lul.
  • The most successful open world game


    By Tronscream
    In my many years of trying to find games to play on the phone and ACTUALLY being satisfied and having something to play till 3 am. Genshin Impact has shown me that I waited long enough, the game asked me to write a review but I just couldn’t stop playing at the time. I have a few suggestions but the game doesn’t need major changes the updates are spontaneous but that is to come of a new game so it’s not a complaint, if you’re looking for a game that you can like and that has beautiful graphics along with fighting mechanics then this is your game. With the dungeons and monsters and many different places to visit it’s even fun just running around looking at the world, although one suggestion I have is that instead of just food to heal your party members why not add craftable health potions and such so my character doesn’t feel sick when eating so much 😂. The purity and smooth play of the game is phenomenal though, I’ve already suggested it to a dozen people and I think this game has greater potential, on the other hand I was opening this was a open world multiplayer aswell, but the story says otherwise. If you need to relax and relieve stress this is the game, but if you want to play with friends and find people to meet you better have them added or you’ll be alone like I am! All in all having a better friends system would be awesome but the game itself is phenomenal! Paimon is so Kawaii!!!!!
  • Amazing! But...


    By Hello Peoples And Creators
    So. The only problem I have with this game is the overwhelming lag that this game brings to the phone. If you guys could really fix this, I’d be very happy, cause I was Interested to see all of the amazing animations that you guys could bring to such a magnificent game as this one. Plus, it should be brought to my attention that you should get the material for wishes easier. I have been trying my hardest, but I always seem to get nothing, although I just do quests and stuff that don’t have them. (I understand that this is a very early version of the game, and your improving it.) Also, VERY. good job on the character models for this game. Honestly, this is the first ever good RPG game, making the fact that all the others were not very good, since it limits you to a lobby, not experiencing the world, and just fighting. I would also like to add, something That would improve this game a lot is if you guys had different Customizations. Like Clothes, Wing Gliders (there are 3 available so, I guess I have a wrong point there) And much more! It would seem to me so fun if there was a whole variety to this game. Also, Amazing game on the characters. I really like all of them, and I favor this game a lot. As being one of your big fans, please take these ideas into suggestion and improve the game early on! I would love to see this game being one of the most played games in the world ! ! I hope the best of luck to you guys!

    By ... well then.
    I’m one of those people who Judges a game by its video/screenshots/price/platform rather than description so at first, I personally thought it was some copy or ripoff of another game that costs 60$ more that will be left unnamed, but it’s much different. There are some things I would love changes too like, you don’t start with so much stuff, you can have two to three characters out as an a.i. that you can switch to when you need them for a puzzle or you want to get them out of a predicament instead of having one out at a time and hear characters that may not be there, with that edition you could have a healer and strategize rather than switching to what you need when you need it out of nowhere. Another thing is that the gameplay and story through me off from how original and fun it was for a game I was initially going to play as a time waster. I would quiet enjoy to have more skins for your characters and voiced dialogue/more story into the main character instead of a random flying thing that always seems starved. I love the mystery so if you are into that sort of thing I think that you would like it although even with fast travel, travel is quiet annoying and unfortunately, I have no ideas for that TL/DR: You should play because of story and animations if not because it’s free PS: I played this on PS4 though I tried it on iPhone, and I didn’t like the controls
  • Runs pretty good on mobile 💃


    By ramēn
    I think the game is super fun and in the past few weeks I’ve already gotten to ar 31! I love the characters and story lines, the only complaints I have are about the gacha and the mobile app. The gacha system isn’t too bad compared to other but it definitely isn’t the best. To get a 5 star character you want is extremely hard if you don’t have luck. Having to spend money for more primo gems to get something good is inevitable. Every 90 wishes guarantees you a 5 star but that’s only if you’re wishing on the same banner. And that 5 star isn’t guaranteed to be a character. The free characters you get while playing the game are descent, but the characters obtained from wishes are definitely more desirable. The mobile app is great except occasionally it glitched and kicks me out of the game. The loading screen had been working fine until recently, whenever I try to play I have to wait on the white loading screen for about 2 minutes before actually being able to play. Which isn’t bad but it definitely isn’t practical. The other thing is when one of the story lines includes “animations scenes” or some bigger scenes it always glitches on my iPad. Which is such a bummer because I would love to see the beautiful scenes 🥺. My I pad is fairly new being a gen 7 so I guess there are some glitches to be expected since it’s mobile and not a pc. But overall I love this game to death and the cute characters that come along :))
  • Great Game!


    By Kailyn Sanford
    So at first I was going to play this on PC, yet my computer is pretty slow and this game doesn’t work very well on it, so I usually play in my phone. So far I’m at Adventure Rank 27, and I’ve had almost no problems with the game. The storyline is great and there’s almost always something to do whether it’s the main story, side quests, daily commissions, or just exploring. The one thing that’s bad about this, as I’ve seen mentioned a lot before, is the resin system. The resin is the main part of the game that helps you level faster, but it regenerates at 1 per 8 minutes with a limit of 120. This can lead to a boring hour of just wandering and waiting for the resin to regenerate. Now onto the effect it has on my device. I’ve seen others say that it heats up your device pretty quickly, but I’d say it’s only a tiny bit faster at heating your device up as other games are. Now the devise I use is an IPhone SE that I got in October 2020, so it’s fairly new and had lots of storage when I decided to download. I’m glad I had lots of storage available because this game takes up around 4GB and more of storage on your device. The 4GB was expected thought because of the amazing game graphics and quality of gameplay, which at first glance does not look like it could fit on a mobile device. I’ll continue to play the game and I can’t wait for new updates and more stories!
  • Gorgeous and fresh


    By jinx9100
    I’m not the type to write a review but there are so many wonderful things about this game that I’m DYING to say. First of all the art is gorgeous and clean, not just the map but the characters too. Secondly is the music. The music was performed by an entire orchestra which really helps set the mood. In a way they’re soundtrack almost rivals some of Nintendo’s tracks. No matter how beautiful the art and soundtrack it needs to have good plot and gameplay to succeed. And I can say that this game does have that. The mechanics aren’t too difficult even on mobile which says a lot. Even though mobile commonly has problems like mistapping and sometimes an annoying movement system they haven’t shown up enough to damper my opinion of it. The characters are all different with unique skills and abilities which is exciting and fun. The plot is immersive and interesting. Also the grinding system of loot and resin gives the player a reason to come back. There are a couple problems of course such as low drop rates for artifacts and characters but that’s how gatcha games are. Also since it’s open world it takes up a LOT of space and memory. Not for older phone users thats for sure. Overall I guess one complaint is that Paimon, the sidekick, can sound kinda annoying but I switched to Japanese VA and I think that helps a lot. Overall 10/10 great work Mihoyo
  • Astounding.


    By Reagan Simpson
    I never usually play these kinds of games. Lately even, I’ve been playing things like Escape from Tarkov and have been fiddling around in Conan Exiles. But this game is insane. Maybe I’m crazy, but at first I thought it would be one of those overcrowded mmo’s with a poorly written story but I have been and stayed intrigued in even side quests! The music is beautiful, the way it was written so well for all the different places and events, I love the effort they put into it. Graphics are pretty good, they’re not intended to be top of the line realistic or anything so for the type of game it is, the graphics are quite beautiful. This is a game where you’re not required to pay to play (of course, it makes things easier), despite it being free. You can actually earn currency and things such as primogems just from quests and exploring, and leveling up becomes really difficult after a while but it’s obviously still possible. The game is all around easy to grasp and the characters are each unique and well made. I’ve been glued to this game for the past few weeks and that’s saying something for myself. I usually like a game for a couple days and throw it away. But this, I haven’t played a game this much since Divinity II and Ark. I really love everything that has been put into this game and can’t wait to see where it goes.
  • GRAPHICS


    By Allywocket
    One word: graphics This game is absolutely beautiful! If you don’t actually like playing it, just use it as a 3D pose reference honestly. It’s a secret tool for any artist. Anyway, putting the amazing visuals aside, the gameplay is very fun, and also addicting. It so hard to find a decent open world game, so I was really excited when I got the ads. To be honest the ads don’t really do the game justice. I downloaded it under the impression that the combat portion would be lame. I thought you would only be able to view it from 1 POV, specifically from above. I had thought that the combat would be more like other combat heavy games, where you can’t exactly mover around freely, or just avoid conflict. When I downloaded it I completely believed that I would’ve deleted it within 3 days. However, I can now confirm that this is one of my favorite games. I would recommend this to anyone that appreciates animation, loves orchestra music, or just likes the open world concept. Not to mention how cool the fighting animations are, and how diverse each character is. From outfits, to different skills, you can tell the devs put a lot of work into every detail. I haven’t yet unlocked the multiplayer mode, but I’m very much excited to try it out. If you made it to the end of this review, you might as well just download the game already lol.
