On June 9, 2021, a new version of Genshin Impact will be released. This is prone to revision, but according to miHoYo’s official announcement from the production department, they’re aiming for a six-week update timetable.

New Characters

Genshin Impact 1.6 will include two fresh characters as per leaker Arkywzx.

  • Yoimiya

    • Five-Star Pyro Bow user.
    • AOE Elemental Burst skill: Hanabi
    • Possible ties to Ayaka.
    • Because Ayaka has a voice line about her, we know she’s a playable character.
  • Kazuha

    • Five-Star Anemo Sword user.
    • Elemental burst skill: Wind Zone

New Region: Inazuma

  • Rumored Full Release: Update 1.7 / 1.8
  • Inazuma has been leaked since before the first major update, 1.1, making it the most eagerly awaited region.
  • If rumors are true, a portion of Inazuma will be released on 1.6.
  • Has three areas that will compete with Mondstadt and Liyue:
    • Two Islands
    • Main City
  • If the two islands will arrive in version 1.6, it provides two additional areas to explore.

New Events

  • The Ludi Harpastum is a Mondstadt-based annual event.
    • The event has a 15-day run of games, giggles, and happiness.
    • The winner of the games will select a maiden, who will then toss the Harpastum—a red cloth round ball—into the crowd.
    • Whoever nabs or picks it up first will be rewarded with good fortune and joy throughout the year.
  • A Banner Rerun for Klee.

New Element: Dendro

  • Dendro is the final elemental in the Genshin Impact series. This nature-based ability is unavailable to any characters.
  • It can only be used by a select few enemies in the game, and they are few and far between.
  • If rumors are true, Dendro will not happen until version 1.9 at the soonest.
  • Dendro is associated with the speculated region, the Chasm, which won’t be available until Inazuma is finished and then some.

Possible Roadmap??

  • June 9, 2021 – Update 1.6
  • July 21, 2021 – Update 1.7
  • August 2, 2021 – Update 1.8

Fascinated by anything horror and true crime. Crazy for open-world, MMORPGs - her first introduction to gaming was Metal Slug, Dragon Warrior, and Ragnarok Online. Played all GTAs and is anxiously waiting for the 6th installment. Inseparable from her fluffy furbaby, Teemo!
