If you have played Genshin Impact since launch and feel like there’s nothing to do after exploring each region. Developer MiHoYo announced a roadmap for the free-to-play RPG that includes a load of new content and a whole new region to explore. The game is set to receive three planned updates on the current roadmap with more content to be announced at a later date.
First off we have the third and new Genshin Impact region called Dragonspire. MiHoYo plans to release the region in late December along with new characters, weapons, quests and other “relevant content”. Players can expect to venture into the new area on 23 December if all goes accordingly.
Currently, there’s an ongoing Genshin Impact co-op event taking place in the game. However, MiHoYo is working on a new Unreconciled Stars event that is expected to release on 11 November. This will release with Genshin Impact version 1.1 and bring with it big changes to the game including bug fixes, UI tweaks and more.
MiHoYo claims in early 2021 players can look forward to version 1.3 which will arrive in February and add the Latern Rite event. We don’t know anything about these in-game events and what players will do in them. MiHoYo says each one will take players to an existing region and revolve around unique items and quests.
While this is exciting news, there’s still some major concern surrounding the game and its Resin problem. The current co-op event, for example, requires a chunk of the material to claim rewards. Of which, players only get 120 per day unless they buy more with real money. If these upcoming Genshin Impact events rely on Resin then players will most likely not participate in them. With that being said, the new Genshin Impact third region ‘Dragonspire’ does sound exciting nonetheless. Genshin Impact is now available for free on PS4, iOS and Android. There’s a Nintendo Switch version in the works but no plan for an Xbox edition yet.
