Genshin Impact 1.4 Release Date
Genshin Impact has revealed the trailer for its upcoming 1.4 Update, showcasing the new Features coming to the game. Not many details about the 1.4 version were given but the new update is expected sometime in mid March. Following Mihoyo’s roadmap of releasing new updates around every six weeks, then the 1.4 version should come on March 17th. This is also the date when the Invitation of Windblume event begins according to the trailer. An official announcement will follow soon.
The highlight of Genshin Impact 1.4 is going to be the Windblume Festival that will take place in Mondstadt and in similar fashion to the Lantern Rite event will transform the city.
Features and Events
The trailer has teased several new features and events that are centered around Mondstadt and will offer generous rewards to players. The heart of the new update is the Windblume Festival.
The Windblume Festival is a celebration dedicated to the god Barbatos(Venti) and as expected Anemo is going to be the main element of the event. The Windblume Festival starts on March 17th and will feature several new mini-games that will keep players entertained and offer various rewards.
Some of these mini-games include the Peculiar Wonderland, a series of challenges that will give players buffs and strengthen them to fight a final boss, Bullseye Balloons where you will have to pop up balloons within a time limit, Floral Freefall, a slide challenge, Ballads of Breeze, a rhythm mini-game.
During the Event a series of Quests, called Festive Anecdotes will also become available to players.
The festival will offer several rewards, including a new 4-Star Bow, the Windblume Ode, which players can refine up to level 5 by participating to the event.
A Hangout Event will become available to players in the 1.4 version as well. You will have the opportunity to spend time with some of Mondstadt characters, like Barbara, Noelle, Bennett and Chongyun, chat and boost your relationship with them. Basically a dating sim that will become a permanent addition to the game with the 1.4 update.
To unlock a Hangout Event a Story Key is required.
Similar to the Lost Riches event, Wishful Drops is a new event that will reward you with a mini Oceanid Pet. Only this time you have to capture Oceanid Creatures in order to advance and eventually fight a harder Rhodeia Boss.
Another combat oriented event, where you have to survive against waves of enemies. The longer you stay alive, the better the rewards.
Liben will return once more in Teyvat to reward you with primogems and several other rewards. All you have to do is to gather the materials he requires.
Dainsleif & The Abyss Herald
Dainsleif, a mysterious character will make his appearance one more time and this time will also bring a new Story Boss to fight, The Abyss Herald. The Abyss Herald seems to be a Water based enemy, which could mean that we will see similar Bosses of different elements later.
Rosaria is the new character of the 1.4 Update. A 4-Star, Cryo, Polearm user with some cool new abilities that can enrich you party setup. Venti and Tartaglia banners will return so this will be a great opportunity to get them if you have not been lucky yet.
The new update will also bring new weapons to the game.
A 5-Star Bow, called Elegy for The End and a few 4-Star weapons:
- The Alley Flash, Sword
- Alley Hunter, Bow
- Wine and Song, Catalyst
- Windblume Ode, Special Windblume Event Bow
We do not know much about their stats and info yet.
Quality of Life changes
Last but not least, a few quality of life changes, are promising to make our lives easier when exploring and fighting around Teyvat.
These include a re-challenge button for Spiral Abyss, the ability to decrease World Level and an increase to Condensed Resin Limit.
More details about the Features of Genshin Impact 1.4 will become available the closer we get to the Release Date.
