The next Genshin Impact update will jump straight from 1.6 to 2.0, reflecting that this will be possibly the biggest expansion of the game to date: add the new Inazuma region, which consists of three islands full of new NPCs, adventures and , of course, lots of beautiful loot (and with more islands to come in later updates). It looks absolutely beautiful and the developer MiHoYo says that the big influences of the style were Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro and other Studio Ghibli movies.
The expansion comes on July 21 and is called "The Immovable God and Eternal Euthymia."
Here are some news about the new region in the press release: "Unlike Mondstadt and Liyue, Inazuma is surrounded by sea on all sides and consists of six main islands, often accompanied by a strong sea breeze and storms. Although Inazuma is badly affected by lightning strikes and the Electro element, the Electro Archon that rules the area has become the pursuit of eternity. adventure in Inazuma, players will be able to explore the cultural landscapes, stories, secrets and historical connections with Inazuma and the Electro Archon on each of the different islands, as well as the answers to the eternity of the Electro Archon itself ".
Developer livestream was a release from MiHoYo (can be seen here), as we often have no news of the people actually building the game, announced that version 2.0 would arrive with "a lot of stories, including main and secondary missions" and three new playable characters: Ayaka, Yoimiya and Saya.
I would be lying if I said I knew what was going on in the story, but I do like this new NPC Toma, who is described as "A bright, attentive brother with a moderate amount of heat."
