The world of Genshin Impact, the action RPG developed by HoYoverse, is expanding with the introduction of new Genshin Impact characters and a new region in the upcoming 4.0 update.
This article will delve into the details of these new characters and the much-anticipated fifth region, Fontaine.
Meet the New Genshin Impact Characters
Let’s delve deeper into the unique abilities and playstyles of these new Genshin Impact characters: Lyney, Lynette, and Freminet, the sibling trio hailing from the vibrant region of Fontaine.
Leading the pack of new Genshin Impact characters is Lyney, a 5-star Pyro vision holder who wields a bow. Lyney’s unique playstyle focuses on Charged Attacks, using Prop Arrows to deal increased damage. He also employs a Grin-Malkin Cat summon in his skill set, using it to taunt enemies and even transform into one for strategic attacks. Lyney will be featured in the limited-event banner for the first half of Genshin Impact version 4.0.
Another addition to the roster of new Genshin Impact characters is Lynette, a 4-star Anemo sword user. Like Lyney, Lynette also uses a cat summon in battle. Her abilities allow her to dash around the battlefield, marking enemies and dealing damage, while her burst summons the cat to taunt enemies and deal Anemo damage. Lynette will be among the 4-stars included in the first half’s banner.
Rounding out the trio of new Genshin Impact characters is Freminet, a 4-star Cryo claymore user. His abilities revolve around Pers, a mechanical penguin companion he summons in battle. Freminet’s skill allows him to perform different attacks based on the Pers timer, while his burst amplifies the summon’s effects. Freminet will debut among the 4-stars in the second half banner.
Fontaine: The New Region in Genshin Impact
Fontaine, the fifth region in Genshin Impact, is set to be released on 16 August. Known as the Nation of Hydro and Justice, Fontaine is dominated by water landscapes and features a breathtaking 300m high waterfall.
This new region introduces a diving mechanic, allowing players to explore underwater areas. Fontaine also stands as a cultural and technological hub, showcasing advanced technology like the Clockwerk Mekas used by its citizens.
As Genshin Impact continues to evolve, players can look forward to more exciting updates and new Genshin Impact characters to enhance their gaming experience.
