What is Genshin Impact?

Genshin Impact is basically a Chinese action role playing game developed by miHoYo and published in 2020. The game features an action based battle system in an animated open world using character switching and elemental magic. On completing the challenges, the players unlock new quests and progress towards increasing their adventure ranking. This free-to-play game is monetized through gacha mechanics, allowing the players to obtain new weapons, characters, and other resources. 

Genshin Impact happens in the fantasy world of Teyvat. Teyvat is home to seven distinct nations, ruled by different gods, and is tied to a unique element. The story revolves around the Traveler, who has traveled with their twin sibling across countless worlds before separating in Teyvat. Then the Traveler travels in search of the lost sibling; however, it gets involved in the national affairs of Teyvat. 

Genshin Impact was released for Microsoft Windows, Android, iOs, and PlayStation 4 in September 2020. It was released for PlayStation 5 in April 2021 and may soon be released on Nintendo Switch. The critics have well received the game for its mechanics. However, it has been criticized by a few for its simple endgame monetization model. 

If you are an open-world game lover, especially if available on mobile, then Genshin impact has a treat for you, as it launches Level Infinite, Tower of Fantasy in the West. However, the Genshin Impact vibes only serve as an excitement building tool around the Tower of Fantasy’s launch. 

Where and When is Tower Fantasy releasing?

Tower of Fantasy is releasing in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, and Germany, after experiencing a successful launch in China. The game encourages exploration to survive on this alien planet. The game follows an anime-science-fiction hybrid narrative and has post apocalyptic influence. It is set on a planet known as Aida and hundreds of years in the future. The game features around considering the homeland uninhabitable for humankind, as all the planet’s resources have been sucked dry. To enable humanity to flourish, you must learn to survive on this alien planet. 

The game has been accessible in China for more than a year and is now looking for a release in the global market. However, the release date of Tower of Fantasy is still unknown. The game has a range of characters to choose from, and each has its own approach to combat and unique weapons. One can also team up with friends to avoid traveling to mysterious lands alone.

Features of Genshin Impact- Tower Fantasy

Tower of Fantasy has frequently been compared to other popular online RPGs due to its visual style and gameplay. However, the two games vary in noticeable ways. The top five features of Tower of Fantasy set it apart from its main competitor, Genshin Impact.

1.Character Customization

Genshin Impact takes pride in telling a different story and therefore contains characters with predetermined visual appearances. It takes the approach of traditional MMORPGs, enabling full character customization by players. The game allows its players to tweak almost every aspect of their character’s appearance. Players have ample opportunities to make their characters unique and costumes to unlock and purchase within the game. 

2. Multiple Weapon Types/Classes

The players in Tower of Fantasy will be equipped to swap amongst several weapons, unlike Genshin Impact, where weapon types are locked to a single hero. From dual daggers, katanas, hammers, ring blades, claymores, shotguns, bows, scythes, and more the players have plenty of different weapons at their disposal. The players can also equip up to three different weapons and swap amongst them within various cool down limits, creating unique combinations, play styles, and classes.

3. Unique Movement

While Genshin Impact offers simple ways of traversing worldwide, such as climbing up walls, gliding from various heights, and walking on foot. However, Tower of Fantasy includes all these movement options. Also, it goes two steps further by incorporating jet packs that enable players to hover over short distances and mounts such as hover boards, robotic unicorns, or cyber bikes. In combat, certain weapon types also come with their own unique movement skills, like grappling hooks used by the players to bring themselves closer to their enemies. Tower of Fantasy gives players plenty of movement options, while the players prefer moving on foot when it comes to getting from point A to B.

4. Player vs. Player Content

Genshin Impact offers light-hearted and casual PvP events, like the Windtrace Hide and Seek event. Tower of Fantasy brings forth and embraces Player vs. Player competition. The players can use their weapons and skills against each other; the game offers 1v1 or 2v2 modes with daily missions and rewards for completing matches. Also, players can challenge each other for a battle while playing in the open world. Players can also go in for impromptu duels for a direct thrilling experience and other forms of open world PvP. 

5. Co-op Focused Content

One of the most interesting aspects etched to Tower of Fantasy’s gameplay design compared to Genshin Impact; is that even the smallest bits of content in Genshin, saved for a few time-limited events, can be finished while playing solo. Tower of Fantasy encourages cooperative play, featuring certain challenges that simply cannot be completed alone. Players eventually have to team up and work together to obtain powerful rewards and defeat these challenges, meaning those who plan to travel the world may need a friend or two.

Whilst Genshin Impact provides a single-player experience with an option for co-op gameplay, Tower of Fantasy aims for a solid multiplayer experience. However, Tower of Fantasy doesn’t fall into the category of being a full-fledged MMORPG, but it definitely embodies the energy of one since its gameplay encourages social interaction so much more than Genshin Impact does.

However, it is too early to predict whether or not Tower of Fantasy creates much of an impact on the global gaming market. There is a great possibility that the game will be able to gather a solid audience, and the two games could simply co-exist. 

How can you Sign Up for the Tower of Fantasy Closed Beta?

The Tower of Fantasy closed beta will take place in April, and you can sign up for it until March 29. All you need to do is simply visit the official website. If you are one of those looking forward to the release of Tower of Fantasy, it is certain that you’re a Genshin Impact fan since both the games share some similarities.
