Genshin Impact developers miHoYo have revealed a brand-new character to join the game, named Fischl. miHoYo has also released information and screenshots on new locations in the game, like Liyue Harbor and Mt. Tianheng. The developers have also given a brief piece of the game’s lore, explaining what type of world.
New Character and New Lore Information
Fischl is a brand-new character coming to Genshin Impact presumably if another closed beta happens. Fischl also received a character introduction trailer. Her character-unique abilities have yet to be showcased, so it’s unknown what her vision will be and what her attacks will specialize in.

The game’s lore also received a bit of an explanation, as well. More specifically, it explains what your player character came to at the beginning of the closed beta. From miHoYo, their information given is as follows:
“You have arrived in Teyvat—a fantasy world where the seven elements flow and converge. In the distant past, the Archons granted mortals unique elemental abilities. With the help of such powers, people formed a bountiful homeland out of the wilderness. However, 500 years ago, the collapse of an ancient civilization turned the universe upside down… Though the calamity the world suffered has ceased, peace has yet to be restored.”
New Locale Information
miHoYo has released new information about some of the game’s areas you can explore. Two such locations include Jueyunjian and Wangshu Inn.
Citing miHoYo again, here’s what they had to say about Wangshu Inn:
“A landmark within Dihua Marsh, built upon a massive stone pillar. As most of the patrons that stop here are traveling merchants, the inn provides an area for them to trade and set up stalls. The view from the top of the inn is jaw-dropping—weather permitting you can see all the way to Mt. Qingce and Jueyunjian in the distance. Legend amongst the stalls says that the tower of the inn hides a mysterious secret, but that’s as far as the legend goes, as no-one has ever been able to validify the claims.”
And their information about Jueyunjian is as follows:
“Dizzying peaks that sit shrouded in mist and clouds in the northwest of Liyue. The area hides many stunning views, but owing to tracks found on the complex paths leading up the peaks, a legend has formed that the hidden home of the Adepti lies somewhere in the area. Though another factor may simply be the hopes of those that seek blessings from the Adepti. Given the dangers within, the area is not suitable for outsiders. Best viewed from afar at Wangshu Inn.”
Genshin Impact is set to release on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS and Android in 2020.
