Genshin Impact 1.6 Updates and Release×400.jpg

Genshin Impact is a free adventure game that is playable on mobile devices, PC and Xbox. It pulls inspiration from anime and the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild which is a video game produced by Nintendo. Like Breath of the Wild it does include quests and monsters. Even though some things may seem similar there are a lot of things that are different. For example, Genshin Impact is regularly updated and includes a gacha system where you can obtain characters and weapons. “Genshin Impact is an amazing open world adventure that draws heavily on both it’s breath of the wild and anime inspirations to create something truly special.” – IGN gaming
