As Hoyoverse divulges more information and data miners disclose the most recent leaks, the Genshin Impact 3.1 update is now coming into focus. Three new characters, several new bosses, an additional map area of Sumeru to travel to, and the progression of the Archon quest are all part of this update’s planned additions.
A lot of upcoming features were revealed in a Livestream and teaser published by miHoYo. Players will have some great characters to equip when the updated edition launches in a matter of days. Here is everything that has been revealed as part of the Genshin Impact 3.1 update.
Genshin Impact 3.1 update adds a tonne of new stuff
Genshin Impact 3.1 character and weapon banners
Cyno and Candace will be on the Genshin Impact 3.1 first banner. Nilou and Albedo will be the only new 5-star characters in the second phase; no further 4-star characters will be introduced. The commencement date for Nilou and Albedo’s banners isn’t yet confirmed.
The Key of Khaj-Nisut, which is Nilou’s hallmark weapon, will appear among the banners for weapons. Additionally, Cyno’s iconic weapon, the Staff of the Scarlet Sands, will also be available.
Genshin 3.1 version new characters
Candace, a hydro polearm user with a shield related to her elemental talents, Cyno, an electro polearm user, and Nilou, a hydro sword user, are the new Genshin Impact 3.1 characters. Candace is a divisive character whose opinions vary depending on who she is and where she comes from in the town of Aaru.
New map area
The Sumeru region has expanded to include the new desert area (Aaru Village). It has a sizable population of Sumeru natives and is dispersed along a rocky canyon. The Mausoleum of King Deshret and various perilous dungeons filled with traps, techniques, and robotic guardians may be found there.
Archon Quests in version 3.1
Genshin Impact 3.1 will include a new Archon quest that will lead the Traveler to Sumeru’s desert. However, what wasn’t anticipated is that there would be even another Archon quest after that. Since the Genshin Impact’s 3.1 Livestream included some of the most eagerly anticipated characters and rivals, these Archon missions appear to have a lot of backstories.
In the most recent Livestream, Genshin Impact representatives disclosed the date for the next patch 3.1 upgrades. On September 28, 2022, the new 3.1 version will go live globally.
