On June 9th, the free-to-play open-world RPG, Genshin Impact, will be available on the Epic Games Store, bringing the game to a mainstream PC launcher for the first time. 

Before now, Genshin Impact required a standalone launcher on PC, which could only be downloaded directly from the developer's website. While the RPG has proved to be incredibly popular on PC, bringing the game to the Epic Games Store will open the game to a wider audience, an audience who doesn't want to install a new launcher for a single PC game. 

So far, no announcements have been made regarding a potential Genshin Impact Steam release. PC gamers on the Epic Games Store will enjoy a free gift if they use the promo code "GenshinEpic", though it is unknown what this gift will be. The Epic Games Store release of Genshin Impact coincides with the game's 1.6 update, which will bring new events and outfits to the game.  

Genshin Impact currently supports cross-play between the game's iOS, Android and PlayStation 4/5 versions. A Switch version of the game is currently in the works.
