In a very cool, short video posted on YouTube today, miHoYo offered players a brief look at the thought process behind creating Genshin Impact's second region, Liyue. The video discusses how they wanted to represent Chinese architecture and landscapes, and even offers a look at some of the places they traveled to for inspiration.

In the video, you can see the influence the real-world Zhangjiajie landscape had on Liyue's Jueyun Karst stone forest. It also highlights the influences to things like the entrance to Mt. Tianheng, as well as the rest of the region.

The video is pretty short -- less than 5 minutes -- so definitely worth the watch. It's even more so if you're interested in game development or just like looking at pretty things. You will, however need to turn on closed captioning and make sure it's set to your language of choice, as miHoYo didn't bother with subtitles.
