New Quests

Three full acts of quests in the core storyline will be added, including the grand finale of the Liyue chapter, plus character-specific side quests.

“Unreconciled Stars” Seasonal Event

“Unreconciled Stars” is a two-week season event “which calls on all players to fight back against a sudden and terrible catastrophe facing Teyvat.” It adds a series of quests, cooperative challenges, and will offer rewards such as 4-star character Fischl.

Reputation System

A new system that gives players a separate rating in each city, and is built up by competing activities in the surrounding region. Building up reputation offers region-exclusive rewards, including customization options and new items.

New Items

New tools include a portable waypoint, portable stove, treasure compass, and oculus resonance stones. The update will also add a Wind Catcher item, which stores anemograna to create on-demand wind currents, allowing for more exploration.

Monster Camoe

The Forest Hilichurl will appear as an in-game cameo of miHoYo company president Forrest Liu in hilichurl form.

PlayStation 5 Support

Genshin Impact will also be playable on PlayStation 5 “with improved graphics and faster load times.”

Genshin Impact is available now for PlayStation 4, PC, iOS via the App Store, and Android via Google Play. A Switch version is also planned.
