Genshin Impact will be among the launch titles of PS5 on November 12, with faster loading times and improved graphics compared to the PS4 version.
miHoYo announced in a new press release Genshin Impact (PC, PS4, Mobile, soon on Switch) will be playable on PS5 when the console launches on November 12, with improved graphics and faster load times. miHoYo confirmed that this will be possible through the PS5’s backward compatibility with PS4.
The PS4 version of Genshin Impact has longer loading times than on PC. Hopefully, additional optimization in the near future will make them shorter. It’ll be a bit of a stab in the back if you need to get a PS5 to play the game in the best conditions. Not that the loading are insufferable though, especially if you’ve at the very least been playing games since PS1.
miHoYo made this reveal simultaneously with new details revealed for A New Star Approaches, the Version 1.1 update of Genshin Impact. You can read all the details on A New Star Approaches with our past coverage
