Developer and publisher miHoYo’s smash hit open-world RPG Genshin Impact is receiving its first major expansion! The new 2.0 update is titled “The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia” and allows players to explore a whole new city.
The new nation of Inazuma will give players a glimpse into a different part of the ever-expanding world, with new characters and threats. This new content also comes with the much-requested quality of life features.
A Whole New Nation
The new nation of Inazuma is heavily inspired by Japanese culture and features recent locations, creatures and characters. Players will need to travel across the ocean to this new land ruled by Electro Archon; which is divided into six islands that allow players to explore the games’ profound lore further and solve more core mysteries.
The new expansion also gives the player three new playable characters, each bringing their skills and personalities. These new characters all come with their backstories tying them to this new location; these include the daughter of a powerful clan, a fireworks obsessed archer and a tiny ninja.
However, not all these new faces are friendly, with several new bosses being added to challenge players. These new enemies are fierce and a great new addition to Genshin Impact!
