Genshin Impact 1.4 was announced weeks ago, but it was this week that the content went live for gamers. Officially, Genshin Impact 1.4 update started on March 17th, which is yesterday.
However, players have been able to pre-load the content for at least the past few days. With version 1.4, the game introduces a collection of new weapons, characters and quests to enjoy. Then there is the big Windblume Festival event which starts tomorrow and takes place next month.
It should be noted that this update is live for all platforms where Genshin impact is available. This means you are playing on Android, PC, PS4 or PS5, you can dive into the new content as soon as the update is installed. Which shouldn’t take more than five minutes.
Genshin Impact 1.4 adds new Windblume event
If you’re an avid Genshin Impact player and more if you’re not, the first content you might want to dive into is everything related to the new Windblume Festival event. It does not start until March 19, that is, tomorrow. So, at the moment, you don’t miss a thing.
Once it starts, it’s only left until April 5th. This only gives you a few weeks to engage with the content and grab some useful rewards and prizes. The rewards range from daily login items like primogems, mora, and upgrade materials for weapons, to real weapons like the special event arc called Windblume Ode.
The event will also have special quests related to some of the characters. Some of them may have alternate endings. miHoYo also states that there will be more to explore and discover during the event, but it’s up to players to find it all. To participate in this event, you must be at least Adventure Rank 20 and have completed the Archon Song Of The Dragon and Freedom quest.
Investigate the Order of the Abyss in a new Archon quest
While players wait for future main story content, this update introduces a new Archon quest that will take you on an adventure exploring the Abyssal Order.
During this quest, players will be able to enter a “new realm” and face a brand new enemy called the Abyss Herald.
Acquire a new playable character – Rosaria
One of the best parts of Genshin Impact is the sheer amount of playable characters. And update 1.4 adds another new playable character to the roster along with Rosaria.
Rosaria is a 4-star weapon-armed cryo type. His abilities are therefore fueled by ice and freezing attacks. As she uses a firearm, she is technically a melee fighter, but the length of the weapon should give her a bit more utility than some sword users, as attacks can reach a bit farther. .
If that wasn’t enough, one of his abilities allows him to teleport behind his enemies for devastating surprise shots.
Minor optimizations bring improved gameplay
Every update tends to introduce at least a few fixes or gameplay improvements. And things are no different here. With version 1.4, players will now be able to hold up to five Condensed Resins in their inventory at any one time.
Players will also be able to lower their world level if they wish. This can be done in single player or cooperative mode.
