Publisher and developer miHoYo has announced the final closed beta release window for its upcoming game Genshin Impact. The last closed beta was held on March 2020 for PC and mobile platforms only, even though the title will be cross-platform.

miHoYo recently announced that the final closed beta would also include PlayStation 4, a platform excluded in the last test.

Genshin Impact is an upcoming open-world RPG. The game is set in the fantasy world of Teyvat, which has element-based combat and exploration, plus an engaging story. As a Traveler, players will go on an adventure to locate their lost sibling. The world of Teyvat has many mysteries but also many friends to make along the way.

The closed beta will debut the cross-platform co-op mode. Players on PC, PlayStation 4, and mobile will get to team up to fight enemies together and complete various challenges.

The cross-platform co-op mode will be an important feature of the final game. The developer is looking forward to how beta players react to the team-oriented gameplay.

Beta periods are important for developers, especially for online games. They use this time to look out for any bugs, game-breaking issues and test the servers. Although anyone eligible can sign-up, they should take the opportunity seriously. Developers are looking for helpful feedback to improve the game when it launches. This feedback is used to ensure players who purchase the final version of the game will have the best experience possible.

The detailed schedule of the final closed beta is still pending. The information will be released on the game’s official website and social media.

Those interested in taking part in the final closed beta can sign-up now on the official Genshin Impact website. The website is very graphics-heavy and may take some time to load. Players will have to make an account, which is free to do, and sign in or log in using Facebook.

Even if players signed up to test previous betas, the developer announced the goals of the final closed beta are different. Those who want to try out the game again will have to sign-up once more.

The final game has been scheduled to be released in 2020 according to the most recent trailers for the game. The exact release date hasn’t been revealed yet, but players are speculating it may be after the final closed beta in Q4 2020.
