With the 1.2 Update right around the corner, many fans begin speculating about the rest of the future for the game, such as story lore and more exploitable parts of the map. So far, players have only explored Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor, but what else is in store? What lies beyond that coast off of Liyue Harbor and those closed off borders…
Upcoming Version Release Dates
1.2 December 23, 2020
First off, we have our most recent update, the 1.2 release, introducing characters like Albedo and Ganyu. In this update we also have:
– New Area: Dragonspine (A snowy region between Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor)
– New Characters: [Five Star] Albedo (Geo / Sword), Ganyu (Cryo / Bow) [Four Star] Sucrose (Anemo / Catalyst), Rosaria (Cryo / Lancer), Hu Tao (Pyro / Lancer)
However, the 1.2 release will most likely play out like the 1.1 update with Zhongli and Childe questlines. But neither Albedo or Ganyu will provide any further advances into the Archon Quests.
1.3 February 2021
One of the most anticipating events, the 1.3 update will definitely be exciting, as it’s close to the New Year’s event in most Asian countries and will celebrate with the Latern Rite event in Liyue Harbor.
– New Characters: [Five Star] Xiao (Anemo / Spear) Dainsleif (unknown)
1.4 March 17, 2021
Finally, after nonstop exploration of our only two nations of the Teyvat kingdom, players are finally able to explore what’s beyond those borders, and discover the world of Inazuma!
– [Future Region] Inazuma (The third nation (Electro) of Teyvat is to be unlocked, which is just a little off the coast of Liyue Harbor)
Playable Characters from Inazuma
[Five Star] Scaramouche (unknown), Ayaka (Cryo / Sword)
So far, players mostly know of the 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 releases from Genshin Impact, however there still more characters to meet and new regions to explore. So here are some unknown future characters who have yet to be decided which update and release they are a part of:
The Seven Nations of Teyvat
Now if you weren’t already aware of the seven emblems of the game, the playable map actually goes beyond that, with each emblem having their very own kingdom and region such as Mondstadt and Liyue. Here the five remaining regions and their inspirations:
Thank you so much for reading! Comment down below your thoughts below!
I thought Sumeru was Egypt?? Either way this is okay!!
Honestly, Sumeru might be a combination of the two? Because Cyno’s head piece is based on Egypt, but I heard many references and city names were based off Indian culture. But of course nothing is confirmed lol, so hopefully it comes out this year tho so we can know for sure!
I think sumeru is a mix of the middle eastern countries, and Northern Africa but we’ll see
I’m excited for the updates to the Genshin Impact Inazuma game! I love the game and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for it.
