Genshin Impact's Exclusive PS5 Starter Set Comes With a 4-Star Skin Selector
Genshin Impact enthusiasts in China are in for a treat as Hoyoverse is launching an exclusive PlayStation 5 Starter Set bundle in China. Set to launch on 26 January 2024, it comes with the Skin Selector Bundle which allows players to claim any 4-star skins of their choice. Here's a comprehensive guide on what the bundle entails and how players can benefit from this exclusive collaboration.
How to Get the Skin Selector
To get the coveted Skin Selector, players must buy the PlayStation 5 Genshin Impact Starter Set bundle. The official launch date for this bundle is 26 January 2024. However, the redemption period for the Skin Selector begins on January 31, 2024, coinciding with the release of Version 4.4 of Genshin Impact. The bundle is priced at 3,599 Yuan (approximately 505 USD), and interested players have until March 12, 2026, to secure this exclusive offer.
Which Skins Can You Select?
The Skin Selector allows players to choose any 4-star skins available until Version 4.4. This includes the latest outfits for popular characters like Ganyu and Shenhe. Notably, Diluc's Red Dead of Night Skin, a 5-star skin, is excluded from this offer. The free 4.4 patch skin, Xingqiu's Bamboo Rain, is not part of the bundle.
Here's a list of some of the available 4-star skins that players can select:
Shenhe: Frostflower Dew
Ganyu: Twilight Blossom
Jean: Sea Breeze Dandelion
Klee: Blossoming Starlight
Ayaka: Springbloom Missive
Keqing: Opulent Splendor
Fischl: Ein Immernachtstraum
Ningguang: Orchid's Evening Gown
Lisa: A Sobriquet Under Shade
Barbara: Summertime Sparkle
Kaeya: Sailwind Shadow
The exclusivity of this bundle to China has sparked discussions among the global gaming community. While obtaining rare character skins is tempting, the region-locked nature of the offer has left international players questioning the availability of it beyond Chinese borders.
Pre-sales for the PlayStation 5 Genshin Impact edition started on 20 January 2024, leading to the official release on 26 January 2024. The retail price of 3,599 Yuan includes a slim and lightweight console with an optical drive version, making it an attractive package for avid Genshin Impact players and potential PS5 owners alike.
Player Reactions and Considerations
The exclusive nature of this bundle has sparked varied reactions within the Genshin Impact community. While some players express enthusiasm about the prospect of obtaining rare character skins, others raise concerns about the limited availability and the cost-effectiveness of the bundle.
This collaboration with PlayStation 5 is pretty good. Especially for those who have been contemplating buying a PS5. The extra rewards, including Primogems and character skins, sweeten the deal for avid Genshin Impact players.
