Genshin Impact is bringing some new things for players to chase after with its update 1.1, which is set to arrive on Wednesday, November 11th, such as some new story content, more characters to pray to the Gods of Gatcha for, and a new city reputation system among other things.

In terms of story content, players can look forward to the grand finale of the Liyue region quest line along with other new quests, while the update will bring four new characters including two five-stars: the Hydro-aspected archer Childe that can switch between ranged and melee combat modes, and the Geo polearm user Zhongli, with strong defense and the ability to petrify enemies. The other two characters, Xinyan and Diona, are four-star characters.

Update 1.1 will also introduce city reputations for players to chase, with growing reputations rewarding region-exclusive items and customizations, and several handy tools like a a portable waypoint, portable stove, treasure compass, and oculus resonance stones.

Finally, the update will introduce Genshin Impact’s first seasonal event known as Unreconciled Stars, which calls on all players to fight back against “a sudden and terrible catastrophe facing Teyvat.” The event runs for two weeks and challenges players to take on a series of new quests and some new co-op challenges to earn rewards like the 4-star character Fischl. It’s all coming with 1.1 on 11/11. That’s a lot of ones!

Speaking of lots of numbers, Genshin Impact has earned nine figures’ worth of profit — $245M to be exact — in its first month on mobile, falling just short of Pokemon Go’s $283M launch but outpacing juggernauts like Lineage 2 Revolution and Lineage M.
