Genshin Impact Version 1.5 Rundown and Teasers For The Upcoming Version 1.6

This coming April 28, Genshin Impact is getting its anticipated version 1.5 update. There will be two new characters, a housing system, new enemies and a lot more that will be coming. Aside from that, Genshin Impact will also have its PlayStation 5 release on said date.


Genshin Impact's Version 1.5 update or also known as "Beneath the Light of Jadeite" will have two new characters namely Eula and Yanfei.


Eula is a five-star character and also a Spindrift Knight and Captain of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company. She wields a claymore and the power of Cryo, she can deal AoE damage and increase her resistance to interruption with her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst. Her Elemental Skill is named Icetide Vortex. It increases her resistance to interruption and defense while still dealing Cryo damage. Her Elemental Burst deals an AoE Cryo damage to nearby enemies and creates a Lightfall Sword that follows her for a certain time, increasing her resistance to interruption. To deal AoE Physical Damage, Eula will charge the Lightfall Sword until it explodes.


Yanfei is a four-star Pyro-using catalyst wielder. She generates Scarlet Seals with her normal attack, elemental skill and elemental burst. Scarlet Seals provides stackable buffs that decrease her stamina consumption and can be consumed to increase the power and range of her charged attacks.


Zhongli's rerun banner with Yanfei is a rate-up unit. This will bring a story progression with Zhongli's story quest. To be specific, Yanfei will appear on the event wish, "Gentry of Hermitage", of this banner.


Two new sets of artifacts will also be in the update, Tenacity of Millelith and Pale Flame. However, it seems like the first set of artifacts is geared to Zhongli.

With the update, players can now hangout with Diona and continue hangouts with Noelle. Hangout is an event that has been in the game since the update 1.4. The characters that players can hangout with at the beginning are Barbara, Noelle, Chongyun, and Bennett. For every hangout event, 2 story keys are required for it to unlock.



There will be a new game feature called Serenitea Pot. It is a realm where you can build your own house and decorate it to your liking, you can even have pets in your realm. Moreover, different realm styles will be available that have plenty of space be it outdoor or indoor.


Three new bosses will be introduced in this 1.5 update. First will be Azhdaha, the "Lord of Vishaps". He offers rare rewards once a week if players manage to defeat him. He is equipped with fierce attacks, use of multiple elements, and the ability to alter the terrain of the battlefield.


Second will be Cryo Hypostasis which is a new addition to Dragonspice. It has a unique pattern attack but once defeated, it provides precious resources including character level-up material.


Lastly, it's the Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning. It uses ranged attacks and is wielding both powers of Electro and Hydro. Some of its attacks also deducts Elemental Energy from the player.

There will be an event in the update which will give all the players the 4-star character Diona for free after completing the said event. Several gameplay improvements will be introduced such as halving the cost of claiming the first three Trounce Domain rewards per week and doubling the amount of companionship EXP earned in co-op mode.

Genshin Impact Version 1.5 will now be available on Sony PlayStation 5 as a native release on the same day as the launching of the said update on April 28. Meaning, players will now play the game on its 4K resolution with enhanced textures and faster loading times.

And now, to end this rundown of the version 1.5 update, the following information is only a bit of the upcoming 1.6.




Genshin Impact has been keeping up with the schedule that even before the 1.5 is released, they are now giving teasers for the next update which is the 1.6. A much-awaited new region of Inazuma and another character was the content of the teasers. Concept arts are shown for Inazuma which is the third major city and region within Genshin Impact.




Additionally, the trailer above gave a glimpse of the new character that was referred to as "Electro Archon's Friend". We can expect that it will be a 5-star Electro character if miHoYo follows its theme.
