HoYoverse revealed new details regarding phase 1 events that will be held in the duration of Genshin Impact version 3.5. The new update launches on March 1, and pre-installation is already available now in the mobile and PC versions.
Genshin Impact version 3.5 is also known as Windblume’s Breath to emphasize a focus on the Windblume Festival. Dehya also make her playable debut in the new Auric Blaze event wish, however. Collei, Bennett, and Barbara are featured as focused 4-star characters with higher drop rates. Cyno makes his return in the reprised Twilight Arbiter event wish. Further, the Epitome Invocation event wish is refreshed with new weapons including the Beacon of the Reed Sea claymore. All three new event wishes will be live until March 21 according to HoYoverse.
Genshin Impact version 3.5 continues the main Archon Quest storyline with the Traveler and Paimon aiding Dainsleif during phase 1. Additionally, the update introduces a new story quest starring Dehya. Both of these quests are immediately available after installing the new update and being caught up with story content from prior updates. Players may also hangout with Faruzan in a new series of Hangout Events as well.
The Windblume Festival kicks off the phase 1 series of events on March 3, just two days after the Genshin Impact version 3.5 update launches. Players may participate in Windblume Festival activities and quests to earn rewards like Primogems, Crown of Insight, and the Mailed Flower event-exclusive weapon. The festival event will be live until March 20, but players may redeem goods from the event shop by March 27.
Genius Invokation TCG will feature a new Heated Battle Mode on March 11. Heated Battle Mode includes special rules where the first Action Card played each round will cost 2 fewer dice. The first skill or equipped Talent for every character each round will also cost 1 fewer dice.
Genshin Impact is available now for Android, iOS, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Windows and Epic Games Store. Lastly, a Nintendo Switch version is currently in development with no confirmed release date.
