Genshin Impact’s latest version will be upon us in less than 3 weeks with many trailers being released by the team at Hoyoverse after the recent Version 2.7 Update. This will present the biggest change in Genshin Impact since the introduction of Inazuma with a new region based on middle eastern and east asian cultures fused into a unique creation to Genshin Impact’s World of Teyvat.
The Sumeru region is on the western side of Liyue with travelers being able to walk over to the region. This will allow players to explore quite easily and also take advantage of familiar terrain.
Sumeru Preview Trailer V1 – Preview of the new region
This preview showcases beautiful architecture of the academic land along with lush forests and an expansive desert. This various type of climates and regions will be what players will be exploring extensively similar to Inazuma and it will hopefully introduce some more mechanics.
Dendro Element Preview
The advent of Sumeru also comes with a new element introduced to the Genshin Impact system, Dendro. The dendro reaction will be unique as it is the only reaction that was missing from the initial release of elements during Genshin Impact’s launch. The Dendro reaction has already been known to have many different combinations with other elements like Pyro for Burning and Electro for Catalyze.
Sumeru Preview 2 – Amazing Architecture and Cultural Elements
The Sumeru preview for this is focused on the architecture and regions more than the previous preview focusing on the Dendro element and the various Dendro related puzzles. This preview shows the influence of middle eastern culture as well as the various unique designs and lore related to the main Genshin impact universe such as Ruin Machines and ancient architecture from long ago. Sumeru being an academic region is sure to have a long and rich history much like the real world regions it is based on.
Sumeru Preview 3 – New Characters, new adventures and new wishes!
This preview focuses on the Sumeru characters, the stars of the Sumeru patch! There are 5 new characters introduced, Dehya a member of a mysterious group of Desertfolk, Tighnari, a forest ranger, Al Haitham a mysterious member of the Akademiya (Sumeru’s prestigious university and leading body of knowledge), Nilou, a beautiful dancer that has chosen to pursue art over knowledge unlike most in Sumeru, and a mysterious white haired young girl…
These characters are all speculated to be playable in the near future. It is however unlikely all of them will be playable anytime soon. The current new characters expected to release with Sumeru are Tighnari, Dori and Collei who were announced previously on Genshin Impact’s official Twitter account. These characters are going to be our introduction to the Dendro element and Sumeru’s unique lore but these other mysterious characters are definitely tickling our fancy as well! To save up for these characters we recommend following our guide to budgeting for gacha games over here!
