Genshin Impact 2.1 update announced with new characters, islands and fishing

Genshin Impact 2.1 is now available. As part of the impending version 2.1 upgrade, the game will receive new and improved in-game material.

The Genshin Impact 2.1 update was recently released. Developer Mihoyo announced on its website that popular online action roleplaying game Genshin Impact would receive an upgrade to version 2.1, which will bring significant improvements to the game. The forthcoming update, dubbed "Floating World Under the Moonlight," will include new characters and islands to explore, as well as a new fishing function, according to the firm.


In a video trailer released over the weekend, Mihoyo revealed some of the new in-game content that will arrive in the Genshin Impact 2.1 update, which is expected to land on September 1. When the update arrives on Android, it will bring new characters to pick. These are Sangonomiya Kokomi, Horizon Dawn’s Aloy, Kujou Sara and the ever-popular Raiden Shogun. Aloy is a 5-star archer, while Kokomi is a 5-star catalyst with Hydro powers, while Sara wields Electro attacks.

The Inazuma storyline will be completed with the next Genshin Impact 2.1 update, and the game will receive two additional islands in addition to the four that were published with the main version 2.0 update. As part of the upgrade, users will have access to Seirai Island and Watatsumi Island. In the meanwhile, they'll have to fight new bosses including Signora, Thunder Manifestation, and Hydro Hypostasis. Gamers will also be able to test out the new fishing function, which allows players to catch a variety of fish around the continent and utilize the flesh to earn incentives or even additional rods if they enjoy it.

“Savior From Another World” Aloy

Aloy gained a Cryo Vision when she journeyed to Teyvat, and she was able to employ her new abilities to improve her superb bow and arrow assaults. Her Elemental Burst “Prophecies of Dawn” sees her hurl a Cryo-filled Power Cell in the direction of the enemy, which she subsequently detonates with an arrow, delivering AoE Cryo damage. Her Elemental Skill "Frozen Wilds" and Talents boost herself and her comrades while simultaneously debuffing and delivering Cryo damage to her opponents.


Aloy's Frozen Wilds talent fires a Freeze Bomb in the direction of the target, causing an explosion that does Cryo damage. The Freeze Bomb spreads into numerous Chillwater Bomblets following the explosion, which burst on contact with opponents instantly or after a brief delay, causing extra Cryo Damage. When an opponent is hit by a Freeze Bomb or Chillwater Bomblet, their attack is reduced and Aloy earns one Coil stack. Aloy's regular attack damage increases with each Coil layer. After Aloy obtains the Coil effect after obtaining the skill Combat Override, the entire party's attack will rise for a certain period of time.

The Inazuma Chapter comes to a close

Two more large islands will become available to players as the tale progresses. The first is Watatsumi Island, where the resistance troops are stationed. The picturesque Sangonomiya Shrine is located in the heart of the island, surrounded by mountains and misty waterfalls. The island has a dreamlike otherworldly landscape, and its inhabitants worship the Great Serpent rather than the Electro Archon in terms of faith.


Seirai Island's environment is dark, spooky, and gloomy, in contrast to Watatsumi Island's. The island is constantly battered by severe storms, leaving ruins, abandoned shrines, and dying trees to tell a tragic tale of the past.

Difficult Enemies, new Allies

With a new Trounce Domain boss, Signora, and new boss foes, Hydro Hypostasis and Thunder Manifestation, your adventure in Inazuma might be dangerous. Signora is a strong foe with a noble aura and immense power, and the development team spent roughly eight months planning her fight. By developing her distinctive motions and effects in combat, as well as her adaptable fighting style to transition between Cryo and Pyro and modify the battle setting, we want to offer this character a highly unique look.

In the meanwhile, we'd like to present three additional playable characters who might prove useful in your everyday fights and exploration. Raiden Shogun (voiced in Japanese by Miyuki Sawashiro) will also be joining as a five-star Electro polearm user. We intended to convey the serenity, grandeur, and almighty power of an Archon through her stance and motions. We also drew inspiration for her battle motions from Hass-no-kamae, sword sheathing, and other Kenjutsu techniques.


Sangonomiya Kokomi, the Divine Priestess and commander of Watatsumi Island and the resistance troops (voiced by Suzuko Mimori in Japanese), will be a new five-star character. She can offer a lot of healing to teammates by using the power of Hydro and a catalyst. Last but not least, there's Kujou Sara (voiced by Asami Seto in Japanese), the Shogun's faithful Tenryou Commission's brave and resolute general. She can deal solid Electro distance attacks and give boosts to the squad as a bow wielder with an Electro Vision.

Story quests for the Raiden Shogun and Kokomi will also be available. Players can find out the stories behind these two of the most high-ranking, intelligent, and powerful women in Inazuma.

History and Gastronomic Delights on a Trip


Return to Liyue for the Moonchase Festival if you want to take a breather from the dramatic experience in Inazuma. This next seasonal event will allow you to prepare and enjoy a variety of Liyue food with old friends such as Xiangling and Keqing, as well as learn about the roots of this historic traditional celebration that has been passed down for thousands of years in the lush Liyue Harbor.

It's time to go fishing!


Following on from the Serenitea Pot, we'll be adding a new gameplay system: fishing! Fish of all kinds may be found all throughout Teyvat's continent, and they can be used to make fish flesh, traded for prizes, or redeemed for new fishing rods from the Fishing Association. In the Pool of Sapphire Grace, a brand-new furniture that may be built in your own realm within your Serenitea Pot, you can also catch and nurture Special Ornamental Fish. If you're confident in your fishing abilities, you can accompany Kujirai Momiji, an Inazuma fishing specialist, in searching for the legendary fish Lunar Leviathan in the Lunar Realm event.
