Genshin Impact's first significant update is coming on November 11th. Titled 'A New Star Approaches,' it will be bringing some new cool things to the game.

The update will include four new characters, a new Reputation System, the final chapter of the Liyue Main Story, the game's first seasonal event, and PlayStation 5 compatibility! The update will be hitting PC, Android, iOS, and PlayStation.

New Characters

Starting with the new characters, Genshin Impact will be getting four new characters. Two of which are five-star characters, and two being four-star characters.

Childe - Five-Star


Childe is a Hydro Archer that has a unique mechanic. He has the ability to swap between melee and ranged. He is the first character to be able to do this in the whole game.

Zhongli - Five-Star


Zhongli is a Geo polearm user that can petrify his opponents. With high defenses and significant area-of-affect damage, Zhongli may be a great addition to anyone's team!

Xinyan & Diona - Four-Star


Lastly, we have two four-star characters, Xinyan and Diona. Xinyan will be a Pyro-based character, while Diona will be a Cryo Bow user.

Reputation System

A new system that will allow you to gain reputation with the multiple cities available on the game. Raise your reputation to unlock incredible rewards!

New items

Along with the new update is a handful of new items that will help with your journey around the world in Genshin Impact. Items such as portable waypoint, portable stove, treasure compass, and oculus resonance stones will help the players in exploration, survival, and battling.

Seasonal Event - 'Unreconciled Stars'

Genshin Impact's first seasonal event is Unreconciled Stars. The event will have players take part in a two-week event that "calls on all players to fight back against a sudden and terrible catastrophe facing Teyvat." The event will add a series of quests and co-op challenges for players. You will also have the opportunity to receive the four-star character, Fischl

MiHoYo is planning on releasing updates every six weeks to keep players interested, hopefully. However, seeing what the first significant update entails, I am excited to see what they will bring in the 1.2 update!
