KEY POINTS

  • "Genshin Impact" 1.5 could roll out sometime in April

"Genshin Impact" version 1.4 is just a few days old but leaks about update 1.5 are already making rounds online. The latest of which confirms a Zhongli banner rerun, three new events and several other interesting details.

On Twitter, industry insider Zeniiet shares a new set of fresh details about "Genshin Impact" 1.5. According to the insider, players can expect three new events happening in the hit gacha game with the launch of the new update. Unfortunately, there are no details available yet as to what these events would be about.

"Genshin Impact" Zhongli Banner Rerun

Aside from this, there is a high likelihood that another character banner rerun will happen in the incoming update, in the person of Zhongli. The insider also notes that the previously rumored Chasm region might not yet unlock in update 1.5. Earlier, several insiders claimed that the Inazuma region might launch in update 1.6.

However, if Chasm is not yet happening in version 1.5, there is a high possibility that it would launch in update 1.6. If this happens, miHoYo might move the release of the Inazuma region to a later update. Zeniiet also shares a new video showcasing the new Housing System in "Genshin Impact."

Apparently, this new Housing System will allow players to own and decorate their house in-game. Earlier, AeEntrophy, another "Genshin Impact" insider, shared the rumored furniture shop's image. This establishment reportedly sells blueprints of furniture that players would craft and use in the new housing system. It appears that players will have to use a new form of currency in this furniture shop.

As for Zhongli, a character banner rerun might be a good idea. The character did not receive much love when he first launched in "Genshin Impact" a few months ago. Players complained that he lacks shield power and damage. Chinese gaming studio miHoYo later gave him some buffs at the beginning of update 1.3. With the adjustments, Zhongli easily became one of the strongest playable characters in the game and a top pick for a late-game team party.

"Genshin Impact" is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, iOS and Android devices.
