Following miHoYo’s reveal, the Genshin Impact (Free) version 2.2 has just gone live on iOS, PS5, PS4, Android, and PC platforms. This update brings the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration featuring Aloy into the world of Genshin Impact on non PlayStation platforms following its debut on PS5 and PS4 in version 2.1. Details for the collaboration are here. Genshin Impact version 2.2 ‘Into the Perilous Labyrinth of Fog’ has a surprise addition on iOS. The game now supports 120fps on specific devices as shown in the screenshot below taken from an M1 iPad Pro. As far as I can tell on my PC install, this option isn’t available yet there so it might be debuting through the iOS version. It isn’t mentioned on the Android patch notes.
If you didn’t pre-download the update on mobile and PC a few days ago, you will need to do an additional download once you update the client on iOS. I’m very curious about the 120fps support on newer iOS and iPadOS devices. Hopefully the excellent MrMacRight on YouTube does some testing for the frame rate in the 120fps mode across different iPhones and iPads. Full details and patch notes for Genshin Impact version 2.2 are here. If you haven’t checked out Genshin Impact yet, you can download it for free on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here. The PC version is available on the official website here and the Epic Games Store. If you play on iOS, with iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5, you can now use PS5 and Xbox Series X|S controllers to play Genshin Impact. We featured Genshin Impact as our Game of the Week when it released and awarded it our 2020 Game of the Year. Have you been playing Genshin Impact regularly and what did you think of the concert?
