Despite what you may see and hear in the above video, it is not a subliminal advert for Ubisoft, and nor was it filmed at a public swimming pool. It is, in fact, off-screen gameplay of Genshin Impact, a new PlayStation 4 title announced and shown off at ChinaJoy. In the nine-minute clip, we get to see someone exploring the lush, green open world, dispatching various baddies with multiple playable characters, and cooking some lovely food.
It looks pretty good, doesn’t it? Okay, so it’s clearly inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but it looks highly enjoyable in its own right. No matter how similar it may seem, it’s not worth smashing up your PS4 Pro in the middle of the convention in protest.
