Players who purchase on the Epic Games Store will be able to play across platform lines with other gamers on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, Android and iOS.

"When developing Genshin Impact, one of our main focuses has been to make the game available on a wide range of platforms so players can play alone or together with friends regardless of how they choose to play it,” said miHoYo president Forrest Liu. "The Epic Games Store is an expert in PC gaming, and we're privileged to work with Epic to bring Genshin Impact to a broader global gaming community."

The change in storefront availability coincides with the release of the game's Version 1.6 update. It brings with it a free bonus bundle players can claim using the code "GenshinEpic." That bonus will be available starting June 9 and remain available only for a limited time.
