In a completely unexpected way, miHoYo has just officially announced a partnership with Epic Games to bring Genshin Impact to the store of the creators of Fortnite Chapter 2.
The famous free to play, just in time for the publication of the next big free update, will in fact land on the Epic Games Store and it will therefore be possible to download the game via the software house’s PC client at no additional cost. According to what was declared by the Chinese company on the official social channels, the Epic version of the game will support cross-save with the other versions except for those PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5: this means that you can log in with your account and transfer all progress.
To encourage players using the proprietary miHoYo client to upgrade to the Epic Games Store version, a special promotion has also been created that will allow users to get a free package using the following code: GenshinEpic. At the moment it is not clear what are the bonuses included in the package, but it has only been confirmed that this code can be entered in the game only and exclusively at its debut on the Epic store, scheduled for next 9 June 2021.
