It’s that time again. Developer HoYoverse livestreamed a Special Program revealing the details of the nineteenth Version Update for Genshin Impact, titled Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises. This update will finally conclude Sumeru’s main storyline, culminating in a grand climax before coming to a grand finale. Furthermore, there will be more formidable opponents added and a variety of challenging and fun events planned for the November 2 update coming soon.
In the fifth and final act of the Sumeru Archon Quest, players will team up with various characters to rescue Nahida from Il Dottore’s nefarious plot with the Akademiya, as they attempt to “create a god using human knowledge”, and face off against The Balladeer. The new Dendro Hypostasis boss will also join the list of available bosses, thus completing the set of having one Hypostasis for each element.
Meanwhile, two new Sumeru characters: the Dendro Archon Nahida and the 4-star Layla, will all be available to be recruited as reliable allies in players’ teams. Nahida is capable of casting an unique viewfinder-ish skill by holding her Elemental Skill to mark, link, and deal additional Dendro damage to opponents, making her a specially good addition to Dendro compositions.
As for Layla, she wields a sword and is capable of creating a Cryo shield to protect allies. She also has a small chance of receiving double the product when crafting Sumeru-related materials. Nahida and Yoimiya’s rerun will be featured in the first half of Version 3.2’s Event Wishes, and we will see Layla’s debut in both Yae Miko and Tartaglia’s reruns in the second half of the Version Update.
To further enhance player experience, the Serenitea Teapot will finally introduce a Replication System, so players can share their amazing designs with others around the world and have players apply them by sharing their replication codes. Furthermore, Italian and Turkish will be selectable as UI/subtitle languages for the game from Version 3.3 and onwards.
Lastly, a series of events will be held, including one where players will clear a series of different quirky minigames utilizing all sorts of provided trial characters, including one where Travelers will have to raise their own…Fungi? Either way, there is no shortage of things to do in this Version Update, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more info comes along.
