Genshin Impact will receive Patch 1.5 in a few days, which will have a new housing feature in its luggage. In addition, the Free2Play role-playing game will soon also be available on Playstation 5.

Genshin Impact is certainly one of the biggest gaming phenomena of the past year. At first glance, the role-playing game from miHoYo may look like a generic Free2Play title from Asia that steals a little too brazenly from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. At second glance, however, many of the game systems and gameplay elements turn out to be surprisingly fun. Or as colleague Stefan wrote in November 2020:

It is unclear how many players have now registered for Genshin Impact on the various platforms. The only thing that is certain is that the title broke the “1 billion US dollar turnover” mark as early as March, i.e. less than six months after its launch (via Sensor Tower).

If you are one of the fans of Genshin Impact, you can look forward to exciting innovations. Patch 1.5 will be released on April 28th with “In the Shine of Jade”. The main features of the patch include:

  • A housing system with different homes that you can decorate and equip individually. With patch 1.6 it should then also be possible to bring friends into your own home.
  • 2 new characters: Eula (great sword, cryo element. 5 stars) and Yanfei (catalyst, pyro element, 4 stars)
  • 3 new world bosses
  • 5 new events

At the same time as the patch, the official Playstation 5 version of Genshin Impact will appear, which promises 4k support, improved textures and faster loading times. You can find the announcement trailer for the PS5 version at the end of the news. Before that, you can watch the preview trailer for Patch 1.5:
