PlayStation releases seven minutes of Genshin Impact PS5 gameplay
The game is set to launch on the PS5 later this month.
Dimapur, April 21 (EMN): Sony PlayStation has released new Genshin Impact PS5 footage today and it looks visually stunning with a stable 60 frames-per-second gameplay.
According to Studio Technical Director at miHoYo, Zhenzhong Yi, “The PlayStation 5 hardware provides an ideal platform to experience Genshin Impact, making the world of Teyvat even more detailed, more vivid, and more immersive. That’s why we wanted to bring the PS5 version to players as soon as we could.”
“At the same time, we’ve been working to develop various functions to fully utilize this next-gen console in the long run: we created a graphics library completely from the ground up, and we built a customized file-loading system to take advantage of the powerful SSD of the PS5. So in future updates, we will have much more potential to elevate the visual quality and game performance – we are only scratching the surface.”
The gameplay footage looks like the real deal with crisp textures and smooth 60fps action even during combat. Genshin Impact‘s developers are promising “high-res texture” and “enhanced Level of Detail” for the game’s PS5 port. Yi says that the PS5 will render all these in native 4K resolutions and will have support for HDR.
The developer also points out the new DualSense capabilities for Genshin Impact‘s PS5 port.
“But to truly approach the next-gen experience, we realize the DualSense controller will be a game-changer by showing how the game world responds to your actions within. The DualSense controller adopts very different technologies, and we’re still redesigning the controller support from scratch to explore its full potential. You may notice that the controller vibration feels different from that in the backwards-compatible version of the game. We can’t wait to integrate even more of the controller’s features to better reflect your immersive experience in Teyvat,” wrote Yi on the PlayStation blog.
PS5 players will also get to see an “exclusive version of Qingyun Peak” which will only be available for the PS5.
The launch of the new Genshin Impact PS5 port will coincide with the official release of the Genshin Impact 1.5 update. The PS5 port along with the new update is scheduled to be launched on April 28.
