A few hours ago, the first official leaks concerning the 1.6 version of Genshin Impact, the new update coming in June, appeared on the net. The first rumors are reported by the Twitter profile of Project Celestia, a data miner account that in recent months has correctly predicted the content of the last three updates and consequently are to be considered extremely reliable.
First, the account posted the first image of a new yet unannounced character, Inazuma Kahedeara Kazuha’s swordsman. The new region does not currently have a release date yet, but the character bodes well for a release of the new area by the end of 2021.
Kazuha is expected to be introduced in version 1.6, along with an event that will allow players to use the “Mystical Skiff,” a small vessel needed to complete a new timed event. Kazuha will also be the protagonist of a side quest along with Beidou and his crew.
In addition to the new character, we find two other timed events, “Sudden Endless Battle,” in which players will have to eliminate hordes of enemies that have appeared in an archipelago, and “Windborne Martial Legend,” in which a new domain will appear that will allow players to challenge some bosses. In both cases, the difficulty can be selected, and based on the result; points will be assigned that can be spent in the appropriate shop.
The most interesting part, however, is the addition of the character skins. The data miner managed to discover only two, both with a summer theme dedicated to Barbara and Jean, but surely the update will introduce others. Barbara’s skin will be obtainable by completing a timed event, while it is not clear whether Jean’s will be sold in the online shop or not.
For the moment, no further details have been revealed, but new information on the update will certainly be shared over the next few weeks. Before saying goodbye, we leave you to the indiscretions regarding the next banner of the characters, the one with the protagonist Eula coming out in version 1.5. The other components of the timed banner have not yet been confirmed.
