Fans of Genshin Impact can rejoice as the game is headed to PlayStation 5 later this month. The announcement was made earlier by miHoYo on the official PlayStation blog along with other important details. We know that the game is launching on April 28th worldwide, and the PlayStation 5 version is going to come with some exclusive features such as better load times, as well as 4K resolution, and enhanced texture. All of these features are going to make use of all the prowess of the PS5 hardware.
With that said, the release date of Genshin Impact is going to happen at the same time when Beneath the Light of Jadeite update will release and will bring new characters, as well as the ability to build a home within the game, along with new, challenging enemies.
Below you can see a statement made on the official PlayStation blog detailing some of the new inclusions in the upcoming update.
In Version 1.5, a new Trounce Domain and a new Boss Enemy will be introduced, offering perilous challenges for precious rewards.
Azhdaha, the “Lord of Vishaps,” is a formidable adversary sealed deep underground, with the power to unleash various elemental attacks and change the environment of the battlefield. Once unlocked, Travelers will be able to challenge the Trounce Domain “Beneath the Dragon-Queller” and claim rare weekly rewards.
Recently, a new boss-level enemy has also been discovered in Dragonspine. The Cryo Hypostasis is the latest addition to the Hypostasis series, and as well as bringing its unique combat style to the mix, Travelers will also need to contend with Sheer Cold during the battle.
