Genshin Impact for PlayStation 5 now runs at 60FPS. The official confirmation related to the update makes it clear that PS5 players will be able to enjoy the MiHoYo hit game running at 60 frames per second.
If you head over to the PlayStation Blog, you’ll find miHoYo’s Jason Chuang statement that the compatibility update improves on the previous version of the game, which will accompany the anxiously awaited version 1.1 update.
The upgraded game engine will ensure that Genshin Impact frame rates will consistently run at 60 FPS on PlayStation 5.
Moreover, the game will carry forward all the popular features from its PlayStation 4 iteration.
With the release of PS5 just on the horizon, our team has been working to ensure that Genshin Impact will be fully backwards compatible with the new console. A compatibility update will be available at the release of Version 1.1, featuring 60 FPS gameplay and all the other great features currently supported in the PS4 version.
Genshin Impact 1.1 update will debut four new characters each arriving with their own abilities, skills, power-ups, unique personality, and much more.
In Version 1.1, we will be introducing a total of four new characters for Travelers to collect, each featuring a unique personality and new skills to add to the mix. Without further ado, let’s take a look at who will be joining us in the latest update.
The four new heroes are Cat’s Tail Tavern named Diona, Xinyan, Childe, and Zhongli.
Alongside the introduction of new characters, you will be able to enjoy new battles and stories with unpredictable plot twists.
Furthermore, players can now archive game progress besides new exploration and reputation features.
First off, we have the Archive. Here, Travelers will be able to check different areas they have discovered throughout their journey, view which weapons and materials they have (or haven’t) collected, and even review tutorials of various game mechanics. The Archive will be perfect for any completionist Travelers who wish to explore and collect everything possible in Teyvat.
Next, we have the City Reputation system, which will allow Travelers to accept Reputation quests in Mondstadt and Liyue. Completing these quests will increase Travelers’ reputation in the corresponding city and reward them with blueprints for useful gadgets.
New events are also planned for the next major release bringing challenges and rewards.
Genshin Impact is out on all major platforms such as PlayStation 4, PC, Android, and iOS. The Nintendo Switch version is currently under development.
