While Genshin Impact works wonders on mobile devices, there are times when you want to see the world of Teyvat on the big screen. Fortunately, miHoYo’s open-world title allows you to hook your existing mobile account up to PC. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Genshin Impact players from around the world are currently enjoying the latest 1.1 content update. Playing on mobile is a great way to play on the go and allows you to keep adventuring throughout the day. However, sometimes it’s best to just kick back and enjoy the world in all its glory. In order to get the best experience, you’ll need to hook your mobile account up to a PC. 

Fortunately, doing this is fairly easy and doesn’t take more than a couple of minutes. Whether you’re tired of playing on the small screen or just wish to see how Genshin plays on PC, then you’ll want to follow our handy guide to help get you up and running. 

Here’s how you can link your Genshin Impact account to PC and mobile.

Linking your account in Genshin Impact is incredibly easy.

In order to make this process as painless as possible, you’ll want to follow the steps below:

  1. Tap the Paimon icon (top left) to bring up the menu.
  2. Click on the cog (left of the screen).
  3. Select the Account option.
  4. Click on the User Center.
  5. Find the email option and send a verification code to your registered email address.
  6. Head over to your registered email and locate the verification code.
  7. Head back over to the game and enter the verification code.

Once you’ve done the above, your account should be linked across both PC and mobile devices. Simply log in via the verified email and you will be able to instantly pick up from where you last left off.

You can also link your Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple, and Game Center account via the Linked Accounts option should the above not work for you. If you do happen to run into any trouble, then click this link to head on over to mIHoYo’s official site. 

With the above steps, you will now be able to effortlessly switch between mobile to PC and vice versa. 

How to link your Genshin Impact PS4 account

As of writing, there is currently no way to link your PS4 account and play it across mobile and PC. MiHoYo has yet to make an official statement on this, but for now, it looks PS4 players will have to make another account entirely if they wish to play on other devices.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
