Genshin Impact - Crossplay Guide Banner

Genshin Impact crossplay is available for players on PS4, PS5, Mobile, and PC. Learn how to crossplay and crossplay options for Xbox and Switch consoles.

Is Crossplay Available?

Cross-Platform Play Confirmed

Console and Mobile

Genshin Impact supports crossplay across all platforms, console and mobile, allowing players with different versions of the game to enjoy playing together. Although the console and mobile versions have significant differences, players can adventure as a group smoothly without significant obstacles.

Devices Crossplay is Available On
PrimoGembullet point Mobile
PrimoGembullet point PC (Not on Mac)
PrimoGembullet point PS4
PrimoGembullet point PS5 (Coming Soon)

Crossplay Only Available On the Same Server

You can only play cross-platform if who you're trying to play with is on the same server as you. If you want to play with your friends make sure you all pick the same region!

Cross Saves Available for PC and Mobile Only

Cross Saves have also been confirmed for the game, but PS4 users are currently not supported. Consider a different platform if you're hoping to take the game on the go with you.

PS5 Release Date and News

Crosssplay for Nintendo Switch and Xbox

Currently, Genshin Impact is not available for the Nintendo Switch, and there has been no announcements for Genshin Impact to be released on the Xbox. We will update this section once there have been further announcements.

Crossplay Benefits

Play Together On Different Devices

The main benefit is, of course, to not have to own the same consoles or devices to play with friends. Boot up your device of choice and get to playing together!

Online Multiplayer and How to Play

Setting For No Crossplay As Well

Genshin - PS4 only
You can also limit players who can join you to the same device as your own! Head on into the settings and you can choose the option that will allow only other PS4 users to play with you.

Increases Number of Devices You Can Play On

Another benefit is the amount of devices you can play Genshin Impact on increases. If you're more of a smartphone player you can take the game on the go or you can relax at home on your PC or PS4. Keep in mind, however, that the PS4 version does not support transferring your character to other devices.

Difference Between Mobile and Console Versions

Crossplay Downsides

PS4 Load Times Are Longer

Genshin -PS4
Compared to smartphones and PC, the PS4 version's load times are much slower. Playing together with PS4 players will have you waiting for them to load in so you may want to play with people using other devices.

Smartphones Heat Up

Genshin - Mobile
Genshin Impact is a pretty big game, especially for smartphones, making them heat up pretty quickly. You may find yourself only playing for 30 minutes to an hour before the heat gets too much so this version isn't quite suited for long play sessions.
