34 minutes of gameplay footage from the closed beta of the Zelda: BOTW-inspired JRPG, Genshin Impact

YouTube’s ‘Keru’ has shared a video, showing 34 minutes of gameplay footage from the closed beta phase of the upcoming Zelda: BOTW-inspired JRPG, Genshin Impact. While this is beta footage (meaning that it does not reflect the quality of the final product), it will give you an idea of how this new JRPG looks and plays.

In Genshin Impact, players transform themselves into a mysterious character, take possession of magical powers and embark on grand open world adventures to unveil wonders and their own destiny. The game is set in the fantasy, lush, beautiful open world called Teyvat, and puts players into the shoes of an enigmatic figure called “The Traveler”, who awakes on the shore, with the sole purpose of finding their long-lost kin.

Genshin Impact promises to feature a unique combat system thanks to the impressive legacy of miHoYo’s earlier titles. The new gameplay mechanics are based on elemental properties and interactions, allowing The Traveler to utilize different element attacks and magic in varied combinations to deal devastating blows to enemies.

From the looks of it, the game appears to be running smoothly, and has proper keyboard and mouse on-screen prompts. The mouse movement also appears to be quick and precise (so I guess there aren’t any mouse acceleration issues).

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
