The latest major update to come to Genshin Impact is causing a stir. And part of that is likely down to it being the largest update yet. But for the horde of anime fans that enjoy Genshin Impact for its distinctive art-style, it is perhaps the brand-new Japan-inspired region that’s causing the most excitement. The graphics do make all those cherry blossoms look particularly pretty, after all.
Genshin Impact Version 2.0 – AKA The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia – is set for release on 21st July. Inazuma is the third major city to be unveiled in the fantasy world of Teyvat. The long-awaited locale has a rather obvious real-world inspiration, if the ninjas, shoguns, and architecture are anything to go by. But with a brand new location also comes a mountain of new content, including new Archon quests and side-quests.
But even more exciting is the introduction of three new playable characters: icy sword-swinger Ayaka, festive fire-archer Yoimiya, and four-star wind-ninja Sayu will be joining the adventure.
In addition to the new locations, quests, creatures and characters, players can also enjoy cross-platform capability on PS5, PS4, PC, Android, and iOS. When the Genshin Impact update lands, players can hold on to their progress no matter which platform they play on by using the new cross-save feature. Meaning there’s never been a better time to grab the mobile version if you ever wanted to play 24/7.
With all the new content also comes a graphical upgrade, with enhanced shading and better optimisations. Plus, a new gardening feature is set to embellish the housing system, as players can now collect and plant seeds to plant in your Serenitea Pot. Needless to say, there’s an abundance of reasons why Genshin Impact version 2.0 will see players flocking back to the title. So now’s a good time to get back into it and prepare for the 21st July update.
