Genshin Impact – A much needed ray of hope
The year 2020 has so far been anything but sunny. All the more thankful, I suppose, when in this dreariness you come across a free playable title like Genshin Impact. Why this title is definitely worth a look and what the story of the wanderer in the world of Teyvat is all about, you can find out here.

In Genshin Impact, she slips the skin of a traveller who comes with his twin from a distant universe to the war-torn world of Teyvat. Shortly after your arrival, however, you are attacked by an unknown goddess who takes your twin brother or sister prisoner and leaves you alone on Teyvat. In your search for your sister or brother, you will have to face all sorts of dangers, and you can rely on the help of powerful allies who will help you in your quest with their unique abilities.
A world full of surprises:
From the first moment you enter the world of Genshin Impact, you’ll probably be reminded of a very famous Nintendo title, as Genshin Impact’s visuals are very similar to those of a well-known title. Regardless of this, however, the game presents itself as a quite unique game world, which knows how to shine especially when the players are off the beaten track. There is something to discover at almost every corner and even a stone circle standing somewhere on a mountainside can be a hidden puzzle that may shower you with unexpected rewards.
Friends with certain advantages:
Genshin Impact knows exactly how to combine its rich game world with dozens of unlockable companion characters. In a party of a maximum of four characters, you can fight your way through the world of Teyvat and depending on which characters are in your group, a variety of paths and possibilities open up. This is particularly evident in combat, where you can combine the different talents of your group members at the touch of a button. For example, if you first shower your opponents with water attacks and then switch to a character such as the lightning mage Lisa, your opponent will face truly uncomfortable times. By cleverly combining the various status effects, you can unleash devastating attack combinations that will have you cracking even the toughest nuts.
Unlock new characters and parts of the world
One feature that ensures long-term motivation to play Genshin Impact is the sheer number of unlockable characters. Currently there are about two dozen of them, but the next batch of heroes is already in the planning stage and will soon enrich the world of Genshin Impact. The special thing about this is that many of the heroes act as a kind of key. Take the character Venti, for example. Venti has a special talent, the ability to create a vortex of air that catapults you into the air in no time. If you combine this talent with your glider, you will suddenly reach areas that were previously closed to you. The exploration of the game world of Genshin Impact and its unique characters are very closely intertwined and offer many good reasons to unlock them all.

In a year that so far has given little reason to celebrate, a game like Genshin Impact really comes in handy. It is safe to say that to this day there is no other free playable action role-playing game that offers a similarly ambitious game world as Genshin Impact. There really is something to discover on every corner and you will find that the attention to detail of this title is just one of many good reasons why Genshin Impact is one of the best, if not the best, free playable game of 2020. There is simply little to criticise about this game. The combat system is crisp yet complex and each of the unlockable characters offers at least one good reason to invite him or her to your party. The bottom line is that Genshin Impact is probably one of the few rays of sunshine that will shine on our foreheads in the gaming year 2020.
