Why did Genshin Impact become so popular?
| Johnathon Reyes
Open-world action role-playing video game Genshin Impact was created and released by Chinese video game studio miHoYo. On September 28, 2020, it became available for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. It gained millions of players all around the world within a short period of time following its release, becoming a massive hit and a cultural phenomenon. We'll talk about why Genshin Impact became such a popular game in this blog post.
Stunning Visuals and Audio
The beautiful graphics and soundtrack of Genshin Impact were among the first things that gamers noticed. With a wide variety of scenery, from lush woods to snow-capped mountains, and brilliant hues, the game's open world is breathtakingly gorgeous. With realistic weather effects and a day/night cycle, the world feels alive and the attention to detail is amazing.
The game's audio design and music are both excellent. Yu-Peng Chen, who previously worked on the music for well-known games like the Final Fantasy XV and the Kingdom Hearts series, wrote the soundtrack. The voice acting is excellent, with each character having a different voice actor, and the music throughout the game wonderfully reflects the tone and atmosphere of each setting.
The narrative of Genshin Impact follows the Traveler, a player character, as they traverse Teyvat in quest of their missing sibling. The Traveler meets a wide variety of people along the route, each with their own goals and stories.
The game's plot is interesting and full of unexpected turns that keep the player interested and engaged. Teyvat's world is full of legend and history, and its carefully designed mythology is gradually revealed as the game progresses. Side quests are another addition to the narrative that give the game's characters and setting more nuance.
The gameplay of Genshin Impact combines aspects of action, exploration, and RPG. Players command a group of characters, each with a special ability, and use them to explore the game's expansive globe, engage in combat with monsters, and find solutions to riddles.
The combat mechanism in the game is fluid and quick, with a focus on interactions between elements. The elemental skills that each character possesses can be combined with those of other characters to form potent combinations.
There are many hidden items and surprises to find during the game's intriguing adventure. The game's expansive globe can be explored on foot, or by fast traveling from the map.
The fact that Genshin Impact is free to play is another factor in its success. The game is free to download and play, and miHoYo makes money off of it using a gacha mechanism.
The gacha system enables users to buy randomly produced virtual stuff, such as new characters, weapons, and equipment, using in-game currency or actual money. MiHoYo has been commended for being generous with its virtual cash, enabling players to gain new characters and stuff without having to spend real money, despite other players criticizing the gacha system as being pay-to-win.
Genshin Impact can be played on a variety of devices, including PCs, smartphones, PlayStation 4 consoles, and Nintendo Switch. Cross-platform play in the game enables players to play with friends on any platform.
The ease with which players may connect with friends and play together, regardless of the platform they choose, has contributed to the success of the game.
Genshin Impact's spectacular visuals and music, compelling plot, fun gameplay, free-to-play format, and cross-platform compatibility all contributed to the game's success.
In conclusion, the sum of these five points paint a very big picture, how can a game with all of these things together not be extremally popular? Hoyolab is also deciding to use the profit they will gain from Genshin Impact to launch their own VR MMO, a very ambitious project that I will be the first to give them my money.
