Genshin Impact, the upcoming open-world RPG from miHoYo that has drawn endless comparisons to Breath of the Wild since it was announced will be holding a Final Closed Beta test later this year. There is no specific date beyond simply Q3 2020 but you can register your interest over on their website now.
The most recent closed beta test took place back in March where it was available on PC and mobile. This time around the PS4 will also be included for the first time. There will also be a cross-platform co-op mode, allowing players to team up and battle enemies together.
Discussing the final beta test, Hugh Tsai, Genshin Impact's producer said: “We are thrilled to see that players all around the world had a blast in Genshin Impact's last Closed Beta while offering valuable feedback on various aspects of the game. We plan to implement some changes and optimizations in the Final Closed Beta based on what we have heard and learned.”
Tsai added: "The cross-platform co-op mode is an important component of Genshin Impact, and it will be a core part of the Final Closed Beta experience. We are very excited to see how players react to the team-oriented gameplay."
