HoYoverse announced Genshin Impact Version 3.1, “King Deshret and the Three Magi,” launches September 28 with an expanded Sumeru desert area, new events in Mondstadt, and brand-new features.
Here’s an overview of Genshin Impact Version 3.1 via HoYoverse:
The Nation of Wisdom will soon introduce a vast desert area, and the stories and adventures in Sumeru will continue here. Three local characters, Nilou, Cyno, and Candace, will also become playable characters! Meanwhile, Weinlesefest is ready to treat players with more stories, events, mini-games, and rich rewards in the clear autumn skies of Mondstadt.
Far from the desert, in Mondstadt, the annual Weinlesefest will be a time to brew and taste the wine of the year with the Anemo Archon. Players will have a chance to reunite with friends in Mondstadt and help Razor uncover more about his past. Weinlesefest also features a major limited-time seasonal event and four different mini-games. Players can redeem various rewards, including a new four-star weapon, Missive Windspear, along with its exclusive refinement materials, by obtaining Festive Fever through mini-games.
More challenges and rewards also await you in Version 3.1. The “Wind Chaser” event will challenge participants to manage the energy of the wind in a special Domain. In another event, “Star-Seeker’s Sojourn,” you will help a young girl fulfill her wish in searching for the Future Stars. Finally, you will be rewarded in the Spiral Abyss if you complete Floor 4, Chamber 3, with the opportunity to recruit Collei for free. Additionally, the daily login event is back, with up to Intertwined Fate ×10 and other items to be claimed. A total of Primogems ×1,600, Fragile Resin ×4, and two unique gadgets, “Jumpy Dumpty Party Popper” and “Cloud Retainer’s Damasked Device,” will be delivered to you via in-game mail.
To further enhance player experience, Version 3.1 will include a few new features, including dynamic terrain deformation, a solution to better simulate the realistic trails on the sand. In the meantime, more DualSense Controller support will be added to enable vibration feedback when characters cast their Elemental Burst.
Genshin Impact is available now for Android, iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. Lastly, a Nintendo Switch version is in development.
