Genshin Impact's First Expansion Adds Massive City of Inazuma

Version 2.0 is finally here for Genshin Impact, bringing an impressive amount of content to the free-to-play action RPG. Arguably the largest inclusion is Inazuma, a brand new city that’s heavily inspired by historical Japan. Alongside in-game locations, characters, and items, there are also some gameplay improvements.

The long-awaited cross-save function will be implemented for every platform, ensuring that players will be able to consolidate their experiences and take their adventures on the go. PlayStation 5 users will also get more use out of their DualSense controllers with the game’s haptic feedback improvements.

Genshin Impact is currently available for free on iOS, Android, PC via the official site or from the Epic Games Store, and PlayStation 4/5.

Version 2.0 "The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia" Trailer | Genshin Impact

As detailed in the announcement video, “The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia”, the location of Inazuma is completely surrounded by the sea and consists of six main islands, and is often hit with high sea winds and thunderstorms. This means that the area is impacted by the Electro element, but players will often interact with the Electro Archon as she continues to explore the concept of eternity.

Three new playable characters are also being introduced. Kamisato Ayaka is a five-star Cryo sword user who has been featured before in closed beta testing. Yoimiya is a five-star Pyro archer who utilizes fireworks in her combat and personality. Lastly, Sayu is a four-star ninja who wields a giant claymore and an Anemo Vision.

There are also new bosses, including the mysterious Perpetual Mechanical Array which may connect to the Ruin Guards in Mondstadt and Liyue, and Maguu Kenki now has a permanent home in Inazuma. To further fill out the update, miHoYo has also “improved character shading” and other unspecified feature optimizations “to deliver a richer visual and tactile experience to players.”
