Global interactive entertainment developer and publisher miHoYo announced May 28, 2021, that Genshin Impact’s Version 1.6 update, Midsummer Island Adventure, is arriving on June 9, 2021, for PC, Android, iOS, PlayStation®4, and PlayStation®5. The game will introduce alternate character outfits and a new playable character from Inazuma for the first time. To further improve current gameplay, new features and optimizations have been added to Version 1.6, including a new element of the Serenitea Pot that allows players to invite characters they own to reside in their realm.
Genshin Impact is a free-to-play open-world action RPG that brings players to the visually stunning world of Teyvat. The player takes on the role of the mysterious “Traveler,” who sets off on a journey to discover the fate of their lost sibling and unveils the mysterious secrets of Teyvat along the way.
The story opens with Klee receiving a mysterious letter from a “Dodo-King” threatening to take Dodoco away from her in this upcoming update. To help Klee and Dodoco, the Traveler will sail on a boat called a “Waverider,” exploring a secluded archipelago scattered over a remote sea area in search of the enigmatic “Dodoland.” The Traveler is put to the test in a series of challenges, including a difficult fight with Maguu Kenki. This new adversary can summon phantoms, dealing both Anemo and Cryo damage, and can only be defeated while in close-range combat. By completing these challenges, players can acquire event currencies to redeem valuable resources.
Two summer-themed outfits have also been added to the game. Players may dress up Barbara and Jean with new alternate attire in the game. Jean’s new outfit, “Sea Breeze Dandelion,” will be available for purchase in the in-game Shop for a limited time at a discount. Barbara’s new outfit, “Summertime Sparkle,” will be free to claim by completing specific requirements in the Echoing Tales event.
“Wielding the power of Anemo and a sword, Kazuha is a powerful five-star character who can provide strong control and additional buffs to the team.”
Kazuha’s Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst can deal with Anemo damage, effectively control enemies, and deal additional elemental damage if they come into contact with Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, or Electro. Additionally, Kazuha can further buff his teammates with an Elemental Damage Bonus for their corresponding Element by triggering a Swirl reaction.
“Besides, more concept art about Inazuma, the third major city in Genshin Impact, and its surrounding area have also been revealed to fans in the latest live stream.”
Genshin Impact will be able to be downloaded for free on PS4 and PS5 from the PlayStation™Store, on Android from Google Play, iOS from the App Store, and on PC only from the Genshin Impact official website (genshin.mihoyo.com).
