Next week’s update is bringing quite a bit to Genshin Impact players. On Wednesday, April 28th, the multiplayer RPG will introduce the usual goodies like new story quests involving Zhongli and Noelle, some new characters to shoot for like the Cryo-powered claymore user Eula and the Pyro-wielding Yanfei, and some new enemies to face in the form of a new Trounce Domain opponent by the name of Azhdaha and a cryo Hypostasis in the Dragonspire.
What’s a bit different with this update is the introduction of personal housing via the use of a new Serenitea Pot item, which transports players to a personal realm that they can decorate and build upon as they wish. This new housing feature promises a variety of different house and realm styles to choose from to put together the perfect cozy place to stay.
This latest update also marks Genshin Impact’s official arrival to the PlayStation 5, taking advantage of the system’s capabilities to enhance visuals and improve overall performance. Finally (and of more interest to our neck of the gaming woods), the latest update will introduce some quality-of-life features such as doubled Companionship XP while in co-op mode, along with a reduced cost of claiming the first three Trounce Domain rewards per week by half.
