Genshin Impact, since its early September 2020 release, has continued to gain popularity all over. The free-to-play action RPG is set in the world of Tevyat. Published by miHoYo, this game features fantasy elements paired with gacha game mechanics.

One of the main objectives of this game is to go on an adventure with your ‘traveler’, in search of the truth about the primordial gods of Tevyat. The game gained popularity even before release, with 21.3 million pre-release registrations. As of now, it is the most successful Chinese video game in terms of international release.

The multiplayer is a lot of fun, with co-op modes allowing three people to team up and embark on an adventure together. But multiplayer cannot be unlocked unless players increase their Adventure Rank to level 16.
