Genshin Impact features an open world environment and action-based battle system. The player must defeat monsters in the game's overworld to collect materials and items used to create and upgrade equipment. Players must defeat a boss at the end of a dungeon to advance the story. Combat occurs in real-time and is based on the player's equipped weapon and character skills. Elements play a major role in combat, with players having the ability to switch between characters while maintaining a combo. Spells and attacks are based on the element the player has selected, with each character having their own set of skills.
Genshin Impact features anime-like characters and is set in the fantasy world of Teyvat, where the player takes on the role of the Traveler, a twin who has traveled across many different worlds. The Traveler has become separated from their twin sibling and their companion Paimon in Teyvat, and must search the land for their lost companion. The game takes place in the fictional land of Teyvat, each of which is home to a specific element and is ruled by a god associated with that element. The world has been ravaged by a conflict between the gods.
There is no significant replayability in Genshin Impact.
