Genshin Impact Anti-cheat Will Be Adjusted and Improved

Genshin Impact is here, and while the free-to-play adventure initially drew notoriety for its often-striking resemblance to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, initial impressions have suggested that there's far more than a cheap knock-off here.

Today marks the debut of Genshin Impact on PC and PS4, more than a year after it was first accused of ripping off The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It appears as though the game is off to a promising start, as MiHoYo, the game's developers, announced that "Genshin Impact has already surpassed 10 million pre-registrations across all platforms and regions!" With the game seeing such a high level of buzz pre-launch, it'll be interesting to see whether Genshin Impact can keep the attention of its players in the long-term, especially as the developers appear to have big plans.

This "spyware", miHiYo claims, was in fact the game's anti-pirating software, which had an issue of not turning off once players had exited the game. Notably, Doom Eternal removed Denuvo anti-cheat following player complaints of severe drops in performance. This software even runs when players have uninstalled the game from their devices.

"After closing the game, the anti-cheat program only reads system information; it does not process, save, or upload information in any way whatsover", it continued.

As part of the commitment, miHoYo said that all changes will be made "within the next 30 hours".

They also promise that they will not wrongfully access or use player information for any sort of harm.

miHoYo has released an official statement regarding the matter through the Genshin Impact website.
