miHoYo’s Genshin Impact is already pretty big for a game that’s free-to-play, but the developers have a lot of plans still. They’ve even revealed the lineup of new content coming within the next couple of months.
It’s no longer a secret that the Genshin Impact we see today is still far from being complete. The developers are planning on adding more regions and characters to the game. Now, we have a more transparent look at the upcoming content to the game, and the first major update drops next month.
Update V1.1 coming soon
The developers have announced in its official Bilibili that the V1.1 update will arrive on Nov. 11. The update will reach the PlayStation 4, PC, iOS, and Android version at the same time. Moreover, the V1.2 update will be out on Dec. 23, while the third update called V1.3 will be out in February 2021.
The first update scheduled next month will add a new event called The Star Which Never Returned. We’ve yet to know what the update will contain. There’s a chance that it might add the next region, which is already scheduled. However, miHoYo did explain that these events will be centered on the culture of the in-game regions.
While these updates are already planned, the developer notes that the work on future additions for Genshin Impact is getting off without a hitch. They add that updates are planned to launch every six weeks. This means players will have a lot of time to enjoy the latest additions before a new update arrives.
The open-world in the game is already large on its own. However, players have yet to explore half of it. miHoYo is going to add more regions in the future. The first is going to be the region of Inazuma.
Along with the new region comes a new storyline, a set of characters, and of course, quests. miHoYo plans on keeping the game alive through these massive content updates, and it’s going to be exciting to see what’s next. For now, we’ll have to wait if the Nov. 11 update will actually add major content.
Genshin Impact is one of the top played titles currently. It helps that the game is free-to-play. The gacha system is dubbed as being unfair by many, but the good news is that the game is still enjoyable even if players don’t spend a dime.
