Genshin Impact's final closed beta will begin next month for iOS and Android. This ambitious open-world RPG blends some of the best parts of Breath of the Wild with an anime aesthetic and plenty of fresh ideas of its own. As spotted by a member of our own App Army, sign-ups will remain open until June 19th.
Having taken part in an earlier beta, I have to say that I came away very pleasantly surprised. While the mobile version was still a tad rough around the edges, it played well and looked quite wonderful. Dave put out a full preview back in March, praising its gorgeous open world and real sense of adventure.
