Genshin ImpactThe 1.1 major update is coming November 11 and comes with it a number of new additions that will expand the roster, storyline, and gameplay mechanics. Four new characters will be added to the mix, including Childe and Zhongli, both of which will have a 5-star rating. Developer Mihoyo is calling the patch the “New Star Approach”.
Childe is a Hydro archer who can switch between melee and long range modes, while Zhongli uses a geologic polar arm, which focuses on strong influence and is defensive-oriented – intelligently speaking, Zhongli can petrify the enemy. Two 4-star-rated characters will also be added: Xinyan and Diona, although no information has been shared about what to expect from them.
The biggest inclusion is likely to be a new City-specific Fame system, tied to different areas players may visit. Build your avatar that can unlock regional rewards and items and customizations.
New mechanics in 1.1 include a portable reference point, portable stove, treasure compass and something called an “oculus resonator stone”, which developer Mihoyo said would be “useful to explore, survive. and fight ”.
Notably, there will also be a series of quests that conclude the Liyue chapter of the main storyline.
A seasonal event is also coming with a patch – Unreconciled Stars. It will allow players to face a new threat over the course of two weeks, where co-op quests and challenges can earn players huge rewards, such as Fischl’s 4-star version. .
Final, Genshin Impact will be available on PS5 through backwards compatibility, with improved graphics and faster load times.
