Genshin Impact - Crossplay Guide Banner

Genshin Impact is available for cross platform play on PS4, PS5, Mobile, and PC. Check out how to crossplay, the cross-save feature, and other information about cross-platform play here!

Is Genshin Impact Cross Platform?

Console and Mobile

Yes, Genshin Impact is available Cross Platform

Yes, cross platform is available for Mobile, PC, and Playstation in Genshin Impact. So whether you're playing at home on your PC or your PlayStation, or you're on the go on your mobile phone; you can jump into the world of Genshin Impact and play with your friends no matter what device they're playing on!

Crossplay Supported Platforms

Devices Where Crossplay is Available

Genshin - Primogem Mobile (Android and iOS)
Genshin - Primogem PC
Genshin - Primogem PS4
Genshin - Primogem PS5

Crossplay only available on the same server

You can only play cross-platform if the person 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 server region!

Is Cross-Save Available?

Cross-Save available on all platforms

Genshin - Cross Save on PS

How to Cross Save

When Version 2.0 became available, the linking between Hoyoverse Accounts (for PC/Mobile Players) and PlayStation Newtwork Accounts was also introduced. You can now crossplay and cross-save between those two accounts once you linked them!

Genshin Impact - PS5 Release Date and News

Genshin Impact on the PS5 was released on April 28, 2021. Check our guide below to see the full details:

PS5 Release Date and News

Cross-play for Nintendo Switch and Xbox

No Announcements Yet for 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.

Cross-Platform 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

Cross-Platform 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.
