miHoYo has announced that a brand new update for Genshin Impact will release on November 11th. Update 1.1 will add new story content, four new playable characters, and the first seasonal event Unreconciled Stars. Furthermore, it will introduce a new city reputation system and a series of new tools for exploration and combat.
As the press release reads:
“The upcoming update brings a series of brand-new quests to the game, including the grand finale to the Liyue chapter of the main storyline. A total of four new playable characters will be available, including two 5-star characters, “Childe” and Zhongli. “Childe” is a Hydro archer with the ability to switch between melee and ranged combat modes. On the other hand, Zhongli is a Geo polearm user who deals immense area of effect damage, possesses strong defensive abilities, and has the power to petrify his enemies. Additionally, two new 4-star characters, Xinyan and Diona, will join the roster. These characters will offer opportunities for players to further diversify their party of four for more effective elemental combos and combat strategies.
Meanwhile, Version 1.1 will also feature Genshin Impact’s first seasonal event, Unreconciled Stars. This event calls on all players to fight back against a sudden and terrible catastrophe facing Teyvat. During the two-week event, players can accomplish a series of new quests. Moreover, they can take part in a range of new co-op challenges, and earn rich rewards.
A brand new per-city “Reputation” system will also be introduced in this version of Genshin Impact. This sytem will allow the Traveler to gradually build up their reputation as they delve into each region. Players will also be able to unlock bountiful rewards and brand-new, region-exclusive items and customizations. New tools, such as a portable waypoint, portable stove, treasure compass, and oculus resonance stones, will be particularly useful for exploring, surviving, and battling across the vast lands of Teyvat.”Genshin Impact - Version 1.1 Announcement Trailer
