The Seven Deadly Sins: Origin looks like Genshin Impact
The game’s trailer reveals a lot about the gameplay and open-world exploration that the game will look to champion. Thereby giving players and fans of the manga/anime a great insight into what they can expect from Netmarble’s upcoming title.
From the looks of it, many in the community are already likening the game to Genshin Impact. Players feel that the combat structure and open-world exploration might have drawn heavily from miHoYo’s action RPG.
However, it’s uncertain if Origin will feature the same gacha mechanic. Apart from a few clips of the core gameplay mechanic, Netmarble has yet to officially disclose any other information surrounding the game.
The release date is also uncertain, but community members speculate that it might be sometime in the next couple of months.
While the title will eventually be on multiple platforms, it remains to be seen if they become available simultaneously. For now, fans of the franchise can only wait for more information.
