Genshin Impact's PS5 Launch Could Bring Back Albedo, Klee

Genshin Impact is currently available on both the PS4 and PS5, with the PS5 running a version of the PS4 port.

That will soon change, as announced on the @PlayStation Twitter feed.

A native version of Genshin Impact will hit the PlayStation 5 in the Spring, with a bit more gloss than the current PlayStation 4 version contains.

PS5 Native Genshin Impact

The PS5 native port of Genshin Impact was just announced a few hours ago via the @PlayStation Twitter account, touting enhanced visuals, faster loading times, and DualSense controllers support.

While Genshin Impact is already available on the PS5 with cross-play support between consoles, mobile, and PC, this new port will be optimized exclusively for the PS5 and not just the PS5 running the PS5 version.

While there is no official date announced, Sony stated that Genshin Impact will hit the PS5 in the spring.

Will Familiar Faces Return?

The trailer itself is interesting as it features Albedo, Klee, and Diona. Albedo and Klee are both limited Event Banner characters who Genshin Fans eagerly await to return.

KLEE: Will the littlest bomber return soon?

With the return of both Venti and Chile in Genshin Impact 1.4, and the rumor of Zhongli's return in 1.5, could this trailer hint at Albedo and Klee's inevitable return sooner rather than later?

Then there is Diona's voice line, "Hey, do you think there are any exotic plants on Dragonspine?"

Are players in for another adventure set in Dragonspine?

If so, what else may be in store?

The tail end of the trailer focuses on a battle with the Primo Geovishap.

Could these be hints of events coming to the 2nd half of Genshin 1.5, or possibly 1.6?

Considering the release of the native PS5 version of Genshin Impact is slated to launch in the spring, the former seems most likely.

Of course, it could all just be wishful thinking, with the trailer just being a cute way of showing off areas and bosses that may benefit from the additional power of Sony's latest console.
