The sport’s subsequent massive growth, “The Immovable God and the Everlasting Euthymia” will lastly convey the nation of Inazuma — together with a number of new characters — to gamers which have been ready (im)patiently for them to reach. The truth is, we don’t have too lengthy to attend as Model 2.0, introduces the island nation on July 21.
At present, miHoYo provided gamers info on the upcoming launch with a barely totally different model of the Particular Program hosted by miHoYo co-founder and CEO Liu Wei (in any other case often known as Da Wei). Not like earlier Particular Applications hosted by Genshin Affect’s Traveler and different characters present in Teyvat, this stream featured a number of members of the Genshin Affect crew providing perception to the sport’s design course of. The consequence was one thing that targeted a bit much less on particular “that is precisely what to anticipate” content material and extra on “that is how we created what’s coming”.
What we do know is that Inazuma consists of six islands hidden away by a storm, and that when gamers get there they may meet not solely the three characters that may be added to their roster, however many others, together with the Electro Archon. It should function new objects and sport mechanics constructed across the electrical energy, together with electric-specific puzzles. In fact there shall be new monsters to combat as nicely, together with the brand new Pyro Hypostasis. And, since Inazuma is impressed by Japan, animals such because the Shiba Inu canine and the Tanuki may be seen working round. (Really, the canine may be discovered working a tea home.) Right here’s hoping they’re added to the Teapot critter record.
Talking of the Sereniteapot, gardening is on its manner. The truth is, the stream demonstrates how gamers can’t solely plant objects of their Teapot, however really plant issues present in Teyavat. As with buying supplies to construct constructions within the Teapot, gamers might want to collect seeds to have the ability to plant numerous crops discovered all through the world within the Teapot.
Story-wise gamers can stay up for two new Archon quests. We’ll even be launched to the three new playable characters, Kamisato Ayaka: the daughter of the Yashiro Fee’s Kamisato Clan, Yoimiya: a Pyro archer who can be an knowledgeable on fireworks, and Sayu: a tiny ninja with a giant sword. All three characters shall be out there in a want banner occasion in some unspecified time in the future — beginning with Ayaka at launch.
The replace may even add cross-save for PlayStation, PC, and cellular units in addition to extra refined character shading, and Haptic Suggestions assist for the PS5 DualSense controller.
So far as occasions go, it appears to be like like we are able to count on just a few common ones to return. A brand new model of the Theater Mechanicus shall be again with just a few Inazuma-themed modifications and, in the event you missed out on getting a Mini Seelie the primary time round, there shall be one other probability to do this as nicely (or get the following colour if you have already got one, I suppose). If you happen to don’t have Beidou but, there may even be a particular occasion by which she’s one of many rewards.
In fact, whereas this stream was a bit totally different — you’ll be able to watch under to see — it did nonetheless embody three codes for in-game objects, which we’ve included right here. The codes are legitimate till the tip of the day, so hurry up and use them.
