Genshin Impact, update 1.4: details with release date, characters and news

Genshin Impact, update 1.4

Genshin Impact will soon receive update 1.4, which now has a release date set for March 17, 2021 and will bring with it several new characters, contents and special events, among which we find in particular a new festival.

One of the biggest news for Genshin Impact version 1.4 will be the Windblume Festival, to which the trailer above is dedicated, or an event accessible to those who have reached Rank 20 and completed the "Song of the Dragon and Freedom" quest. This is a special event because it leads above all to deepening the knowledge of the characters rather than providing new stages of gameplay specifically RPG.

It is in effect a sort of dating sim during which we can spend time and converse with Noelle, Bennett, Barbara and Chongyun. During the festival it will also be possible to take part in various mini-games in single or multiplayer, allowing you to win tickets for purchases in the specific shop.

From the point of view of the story, the update will bring more details on the Abyss Order and the fate of the Traveler's brother, lost for a long time, thus enriching the lore of the game. Adventurers who continue to investigate with "Bough Keeper" Dainsleif will take on the Abyss Herald and learn some surprising secrets about the Ruin Guard at Stormterror's Lair.

In terms of setting, the update will bring the Peculiar domain with it. Wonderland, contain various random challenges. As for the new characters, "Thorny Benevolence" Rosaria will become an integral part of the cast as a 4-star fighter, armed with polearm and Cryo power, but further news on this front should also arrive later, as we reported with previous leaks on a new 5 star character coming soon.

Further news in the presentation video below, which reviews the various details of the 1.4 version of Genshin Impact, while the game continues to be a phenomenon from an economic point of view, obtaining 8 times the costs of development only for the mobile version.

Genshin Impact’s next big update releases on March 17 and with it comes the start of a new event, the Windblume Festival, bringing new mini-games, a new playable character, the opportunity to go on dates with select characters, and some quality of life changes.

The news comes via a post on the PlayStation Blog announcing the update and various details about it. Update 1.4 sees the start of the Windblume Festival, which is described as “a cultural celebration of romance and passion.” After the update is live, players who have reached adventure rank 20 and completed the “Song of the Dragon and Freedom” quest will be invited to this festival of love and passion. During the event, players will be able to spend some “special time” together with Barbara, Noelle, Bennett, and Chongyun. During these dates, you’ll have to make different choices to reach different endings.

Also, as part of the festivities, three new mini-games will be available: Bullseye Balloons, Floral Freefall, and Ballads of Breeze. The mini-game will have four difficulty levels and most can be played solo or co-op. As you complete these mini-games you’ll earn tickets that can be spent on new rewards including talent level-up materials as well as two new gadgets.

Rosaria “Thorny Benevolence”, a new 4-star playable character, will be added to Genshin Impact during update 1.4. Here’s what Zhenzhong Yi, the Studio Technical Director at Genshin Impact developer miHoYo, had to say about this new character:

“Rosaria is a sister of the Church of Favonius who players may have already encountered during their adventures with Albedo in Dragonspine. Bearing a Cryo Vision, Rosaria is a powerful polearm wielder with an Elemental Skill that allows her to instantly shift behind her enemy, piercing and slashing them to deal Cryo damage. Her Elemental Burst allows her to attack with a mighty slash, causing massive Cryo damage and summoning a frigid Ice Lance that deals continuous Cryo damage to nearby enemies.”

Lastly, two smaller changes are being implemented with update 1.4. Players will now be able to hold five Condensed Resin in their inventory. And folks will be able to lower the world level in both co-op and single-player.

I don’t play Genshin Impact so a lot of this sounds like complete gibberish to me. But if you are a Genshin Impact player, hopefully, this sounds good..?
