A new update to Genshin Impact, featuring new seasonal events and the first playable characters from lightning.
Genshin Impact Version 1.6 update, Midsummer Island Adventure arrives on June 9th, introducing another character’s outfit and Inazuma’s new playable character for the first time.
In a future update to a free-to-play open-world action RPG, Klee received a mysterious letter from Dodo King and threatened to keep Dodoco away from her. To help Klee and Dodoko, sail on a boat called a wave rider, exploring the archipelago in remote waters in search of the mysterious Bodoland.
While searching, you will face a series of challenges, including the fight against Magukenki. This new opponent can summon phantoms, deal both anemo and cryo damage, and can only be defeated during close range combat.
By completing these challenges, you will have the event currency to harness your resources and the completely sophisticated new 4-star catalyst “Dodoco Tales” from the event shop.
Two summer-themed outfits have also been added, allowing you to dress up Jean and Barbara with new in-game outfits. Jean’s costume, Sea Breeze Dandelions, can be purchased at the in-game shop for a limited time. Barbara’s costume, Daylight Savings Sparkle, is free to claim by completing certain requirements at the Echoing Tales event.
Kazuha Kaedehara, Inazuma’s first playable character, will also appear in version 1.6. A powerful 5-star character that can use the power of anemo and sword to give your team powerful control and additional buffs. His elemental skills and elemental bursts deal both anemo damage and additional elemental damage when in contact with hydro, pyro, cryo, or electro.
Kazuha will also appear in the new Archon Quest. Traveling with Hokuto and her Cruz fleet, this wandering samurai “provides clues about the path to a closed lightning bolt.”
New features and optimizations will also be added in version 1.6. This includes a new feature in Serenitea Pot that allows players to invite their own characters to their territory. Characters in the player’s territory gradually accumulate character companionship experience, and this rate of increase is affected by the Adeptal Energy Rank.
Genshin Impact can be downloaded for free from the PlayStation Store to PS4 and PS5, from Google Play to Android, from the App Store to iOS, and from the Genshin Impact official website to your PC.
