Genshin Impact announces playable closed beta date

The open-world action RPG's PS4 Beta starts July 2.

Hi everyone! I’m Max, from the Genshin Impact Community Team at miHoYo. Today, we’re really excited to announce that our first-ever closed beta on PlayStation 4 will go live on July 2! 

Game Setting

For those of you joining us for the first time, Genshin Impact is a brand-new open world action title set in a fantasy land called Teyvat. You will be playing as ‘The Traveler’, who braves this whole new world only to be deprived of their power and more importantly, their only kin. With scarce knowledge of this mysterious realm, in order to unveil the riddles of this enigmatic world and achieve the ultimate goal of reuniting with your kin, you set off a journey across a foreign land with your only companion, the cute and kind-hearted Paimon.

Exploration & Co-op

During this beta, PS4 players will get to explore a slice of the wonderful in-game world. Enjoy your journey as it takes you from the serene city of Mondstadt to the majestic region of Liyue Harbor. However, if you ever feel lonely or need a helping hand against a powerful monster, there is also the option to invite your friends into your world. We are absolutely excited for you to experience our co-op system that allows you to create a party of up to four players. 

Characters & Combat

Genshin Impact is more than just your run-of-the-mill action game. You will build a team with characters from a rich roster, each with distinctive personalities and combat styles. 

Players are free to choose between English or Japanese character voiceovers for a fully immersive audio experience. Playable characters each have control over one of seven natural elements, giving them access to powerful elemental abilities. Combining elements in ways to create chain reactions is the key to defeating powerful enemies and solving challenging puzzles in the open world.

Players are free to choose between English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese character voiceovers for a fully immersive audio experience.

Our Vision

Player freedom is a core pillar of our design – we hope to pack the game with a variety of different experiences, whether it be in the immersive open world exploration, the narrative driven gameplay, or the intense and thrilling combat. It’s entirely your call on how to tackle the world of Teyvat, what kind of adventure you are looking for in any given moment, and what you are looking to ultimately achieve.

Language Support

PS4 users can play this worldwide beta with language support in: English, Chinese (Simplified & Traditional), Japanese, Korean, French, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, and Thai. For more info, visit our Closed Beta FAQ.

Finally, thanks for your continued support and we will see you in Teyvat!

  • I definitely like what I see in the screenshots!
    How long will the beta last?

  • I go to the we site but I can’t see where I sign up for the beta

    • Go to the official Website, create a miHoYo-Account or login, then the yellow “register” button on the Website should change to a “Final Closed Beta”-Button.

      Doens’t work for me, though. Either the registration is broken or they don’t want european players.

    • We’re can I join to play the bata would love to be a part of the experience to have input on a future game development would be amazing experience

    • The registration for the beta test ended the 19th of this month

  • Looks amazing! But the website isn’t working…I would love to sign up for the beta but it doesn’t look like I can…

  • So apparently the beta signup was closed a few days ago. Will the PS4 community get a new signup or is this post just a waste of time?

    • the registration started around the start of the month, lasted 2 weeks and ended in june 19. it give you the choice of what system you will be getting beta access

  • Beta sign ups are closed and apparently this is the last beta before the game release

  • 4 player co op? Sign me up!

  • You post a news story on the official playstation blog touting a beta, but the signups for said beta ended a few days ago. What kind of incompetence is this?

  • Those screen shots are reminding me a lot of Breath of the Wild.

  • how can i get access to play the beta.?

  • Beta advertising for one that signups are already closed on? Thanks for wasting our time Sony.

  • how to get in closed beta where do you sign up?

  • Registration for beta was over even before this post was published. Also big deal braker for me is that game posseses a cross-save feature between IOS/Android/PC but PS4 version will be stand alone.

  • Yes, I’m sure we’d all love a chance to play the closed Beta. I don’t see any post or anyone that answered, But I’ll ask again. Where do we sign up? I’d love to see what all it has to offer. =) Big fan of RPGs and Open World? Definitely would be interested. Thanks in advance. Either way, Looks pretty awesome. Can’t wait to see more of it.

  • I tried to register i was able to start but I’m not sure if it’s complete i didn’t see any indication that it was.

  • Let’s Play

  • Article comes out 4 days after beta sign-ups close?! Good jorb PlayStation.Blog…. -_-

  • I am disappointed. I received the email on 6/23. Only to find out I had to sign up for the Beta test by 6/19. Is there going to be another way to sign up?

  • Sadly I didn’t get it, as I can just wait now that’s the best I can do :/, also it’s not only console also mobile too but I applied for PS4, glad they made it official to let others know

  • I got an email invitation for the closed beta but there’s no download code in the email. How do I get the game?

  • I wish to play what looks to be an amazing game!

  • Ah yes, the Breath of the Wild clone.

    Can’t wait, hopefully it has more substance than the Nintendo game did. Was so empty, nothing to do.

  • Sounds like an awesome game. Can’t wait to play!
