Genshin Impact just gave us another solid reason to believe it’s a revolutionary achievement in free-to-play gaming.
Since its worldwide release two weeks ago, the Breath of Life inspired, open-world RPG has grossed over $100M– a jaw-droppingly huge success for a game launch. This was reported by video games industry analyst Daniel Ahmad, who added that this is “without a doubt the most successful launch for an original IP from a Chinese dev.” According to various sources, the development of this game cost around a hundred million dollars, so it would be a long-running holiday to miHoYo from this point forward.
It was love at first sight when I came across the game. While I have previously tried other free-to-play open-world, never in my wildest dreams did I expect to experience a game so immersive, visually stunning, and with well-written characters without having to put in some cash. Yes, that was Genshin Impact’s impact on me: its generosity knocked me off my feet.
Genshin Impact released on multiple platforms last September 28. It was an immediate hit, most especially in Asian countries like Japan, Korea, China, and the Philippines. On the Google Play Store alone, the title has reached a whopping 5 million downloads and almost 500,000 reviews dominated by 5 stars. It’s also available on iOS, PC, and PS4, so imagine what data we’d have if these other platforms also presented their numbers.
Considering that Genshin Impact has only been out for two weeks, we can only brace ourselves for what’s to come to what’s deemed to be one of the biggest titles this year. If you also wanna feel the Genshin Impact we’re talking about, you can download the game on the Google Play and the App Store for free.
