Genshin Impact is the game of the hour. Countless players and new fans have been won over the last few days. Of course, because it’s free-to-play. The beautiful look attracts many and because the start is free at first, Genshin Impact is also quickly downloaded to PS4, PCs or mobile devices.
After just a few days, Genshin Impact was reported as the most successful publication from China. A few days ago the version for mobile devices alone cracked 17 million downloads. With the versions for PS4 and PCs, the numbers are likely to be much higher. And the version for Nintendo Switch, which is also ideally suited for the game, is still to come.
What started out as a “Zelda clone” is now a mega hit. This is also evident in the proceeds. Daniel Ahmad, a well-known analyst at Niko Partners and an expert on the Chinese market, puts Genshin Impact’s income at over 100 million US dollars. For very successful mobile games, however, this is often just the beginning.
Let’s see where Genshin Impact is headed. Did you already try it? And have you already spent real money on Genshin Impact?
The story of Genshin Impact
In Genshin Impact you play a mysterious person known as the Traveler. After you have suddenly been separated from your sibling, you are stranded helplessly and without your usual strength in a world you do not know. You are now in Teyvat, a fantastic world that is permeated by seven elements. However, you are not alone. You embark on an epic journey to find your lost sibling and to unravel the many secrets of this world. On your way you will win some loyal companions and you will also make powerful enemies who will oppose you on your search.
