Done with Genshin Impact? Here are 5 similar games in the Google Play Store
Ever since its launch back in September 2020, Genshin Impact has emerged as one of the most beautiful and challenging mobile games of all time. Thanks to its open-world environment along with hack-and-slash mechanics, the title is enjoyed by millions of players worldwide. While Genshin Impact has carved a place for itself as one of the best Android games of all time, some may get bored with its repetitive gameplay and endless grind, while others may find it difficult to run on budget devices. Here we’re going to take a look at some Genshin Impact-like games you might have been sleeping on.
Honkai Impact 3rd
Developed by the same studio that introduced us to the world of Genshin Impact, Honkai Impact 3rd is a free-to-play RPG that picks up many characters from its sequel (Houkai Gakuen), but has a different story. The game features both single-player and multiplayer campaigns where the player controls a team of three characters known as Valkyries. Like Genshin Impact, each character has unique attacks, playstyles, and ultimate skills.
In the single player mode, one can explore the open world, gather materials and complete challenges, while the multiplayer or co-op mode allows you to go on raids and collect rewards such as legendary weapons. While Honkai Impact 3 may be set in a different world, players will find that the combat and graphics live up to the standard set by Genshin Impact on mobile devices.
Sword Art Online: Integral Factor
Based on the anime series, Sword Art Online: Integral Factor is an online RPG where players put themselves in the protagonist’s shoes. Set in the year 2022, the story revolves around a former Sword Art Online beta tester, who is trapped in the game after its official launch. To exit the game, the player must clear 100 floors of Aincrad. To do so, you need to upgrade your character and skills and complete boss attacks to reach the next floor.
The game allows players from a large arsenal of weapons such as rapier, dagger, mace, axe, bow, speaker and sword. You can also use some special attacks known as sword skills. Players can equip up to four sword skills at once and use them in quick succession.
If you are interested in an MMORPG with really good graphics, Dragon Raja may appeal to you. Developed in Unreal Engine 4, it is a third-person online multiplayer game where players can explore and engage in the open world.
The game allows users to indulge in both PvE and PvP missions and choose between classes that offer different fighting styles. Some of the available PvP modes include battle royale and car racing. In case you don’t want to participate in battle, the player can create and customize their own characters, dress them up as they want, get married, have children and decorate houses.
Tales of Wind
Just like Genshin Impact, Tales of Wind has the Gacha system. Based in a fantasy land called La Place, the main objective of the game is to defeat monsters and capture them in soul cards, which can be used to increase your power. You can also transform into monsters and use their abilities to take down enemies.
Apart from killing monsters, the game has more than 20 casual modes, some of which include shooting, quiz and racing. Players can also join a guild and participate in guild vs guild wars. You can customize your character outfits and collect cute pets on the go too.
If you’re tired of the endless battles and walking in the huge open world, Tales of Wind even has an automatic battle and autopath system. You can also indulge in various activities such as maintaining a farm, partying and partying with guild members and creating your own team.
While Genshin Impact ties characters to a specific class like Pyro and Electro, Albion Online takes a completely different approach by letting players define the abilities and playstyle of their characters.
With a player-driven economy, all equipment in the game is crafted by other players. With both PvP and PvE game modes, Albion Online allows you to claim territories, gather resources, build guild halls and hideouts, and join a faction to participate in faction campaigns. It also happens to be one of the few games that offers a truly cross-platform experience, with those on mobile devices able to party with players on different platforms like PC.
