Genshin Impact developer miHoYo has announced that the game will officially launch on PS5 on April 28, 2021.
Through a press release, it has been reported that the PlayStation 5 version of the open-world role-playing game (free) will be available on April 28, along with the 1.5 updates of the game, titled “Beneath the Light of Jadite.”

On the other hand, we also know that update 1.5 will come with new enemies. Additionally, players will be offered resources such as Materials to level up after their defeat. Additionally, players will now also be able to set up and decorate their own personal kingdom, which is found “inside a special teapot. ” It will also increase the EXP of the cooperative championship, and it will be easier to claim the first three rewards of the Trounce Domain weekly.
