Over the weekend, HoYoverse revealed the Genshin Impact (Free) version 3.0 release date for all platforms alongside many details about the massive update. Genshin Impact 3.0 is titled “The Morn a Thousand Roses Brings” and it is set to go live on August 24th for all platforms. As usual, pre-installation will be live on iOS, Android, and PC a few days prior. This update brings in the massive Sumeru region. Sumeru is the fourth of seven major nations. Dendro element gameplay, the final element in the seven-element system, will also be arriving with this update. Sumeru is on the West of Liyue, and it has two main biomes: a desert and rainforest. As usual, new characters will be added including the five-star Tighnari, Collei, and Dori. Watch the Genshin Impact 3.0 trailer below:
In addition to new content, the Boon of the Elder Tree, Ultra-Hot Burner Lamp Test Model, and the Fishing Line Stabilizer will be added to make wood farming, cooking, and fishing easier. The update will also see colored shadows added. I’ll post when pre-installation goes live. It is also worth watching this superb musical performance for Sumeru on YouTube.
