Genshin Impact, the hit free-to-play game by Chinese developers miHoYo that heavily reminds us of Breath of the Wild, is going to get even better. The game will receive a major update on November 11 that will add tons of new content. We mean new playable characters, quests, reputation systems, season events, and much more are coming. We will cover all of that here. Be sure to check out the Update 1.1 trailer below, courtesy of IGN.

The four new characters are Zhongli, Childe, Diona, and Xinyan. However, there is a good chance that we will get a fifth character as well, Ganyu, who will be half-Adeptus and half-human.

Genshin Impact update 1.1 will also release more story content that will finish the storyline of Liyue. Other characters like Keqing, Xiao & Ganyu will also make appearances.

The update will introduce a brand-new Seasonal event. The event is titled the Unreconciled Stars Event, and will be released in three stages. This will probably be one stage every two weeks, like previous events, but we will know more in the future. Players also get the OP character Fischl for free by just participating in the event.

miHoYo are adding a completely new feature called Reputation System in update 1.1. It will work separately for two existing regions, Liyue and Mondstadt. Future areas that will be added via expansion packs will also have this new feature. Keep in mind that the Reputation System will not interfere or replace Friendship Level and Adventure Rank.

Raising your Reputation Level isn’t just a gimmick though, it will come with its own rewards and advantages. You can increase your RP Level by doing missions, exploring the world, completing bounties, and more. Check out the English translated patch notes, but keep in mind that they are translated by a fan and are not official notes from the developers.

That’s not all, as it was revealed that Genshin Impact will also be available on PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility. We are interested in how much of an increase we are going to see in framerate and visual quality.
