Genshin Impact is trying to cast a broader net to attract more players

This move is going to do wonders for the Gacha title, as it will expose it to a wider audience. The game is currently available on PlayStation 4, PC, Android, and iOS. Players can add the title to their wishlist, as the studio prepares to release it on the platform in a few days. The studio is also offering a special bundle to celebrate this momentous occasion.

Gamers can use the redemption code ‘GenshinEpic’ to claim the limited-time bundle, starting from June 9. miHoYo’s President, Forrest Liu also shared his thoughts about this collaboration.

“When developing Genshin Impact, one of our main focuses has been to make the game available on a wide range of platforms so players can play alone or together with friends regardless of how they choose to play it. The Epic Games Store is an expert in PC gaming, and we’re privileged to work with Epic to bring Genshin Impact to a broader global gaming community.”

Naturally, more gamers will be able to explore the beautiful world of Teyvat, as the studio’s official website will no longer serve as the only source. This game holds the capacity to dominate other markets and this move will test its strength.
