If you are fan of the popular mobile game Genshin Impact, it might be a delight to know that the title is now coming to PS5 as well. What's better is that the game will support DualSense and will have enhanced visuals too. Developer miHoYo confirmed the news by releasing a new trailer on YouTube, announcing its arrival on PS5. Moreover, the PlayStation Twitter handle confirmed that the title will have enhanced visuals, faster loading, and DualSense controller support. This means it will give an immersive experience with DualSense's haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

Genshin Impact was released back in September 2020 and became popular over the course of months. Although the developer has not revealed the launch date on PS5, it does say the title is ‘coming soon', which may mean by the end of this year. It is possible to play Genshin Impact on PS5 using backwards compatibility. However, you will be missing out on good resolution and best performance.

A few days ago, Genshin Impact surpassed $1 billion in player spending in less than six months of its launch, according to Sensor Tower. Player spending in Genshin Impact has been at an average of around $160 million per month since December, and in March so far it has already crossed $148 million, Sensor Tower said in a blog. Genshin Impact is available on PS4, iOS, Android and PC, but it's the most popular on mobile raking $233.7 million in October last year.

Genshin Impact is also ranked third in revenue generating from the App Store and Google Play Store. It's behind PUBG Mobile and Honor of Kings, both games from Tencent.
