Genshin Impact: The Immovable God And The Eternal Euthymia Update Details

TheGamer 09 July, 2021 - 10:44am

The much-anticipated Inazuma is an island region ruled by the Electro Archon. With this brand new area comes a string of story quests, events, puzzles, and NPC characters. The update also introduces cross-save, meaning the same account can be accessed across PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, Android, and IOS, a game-changing experience.

We take a look at everything you can expect to find in Genshin Impact Version 2.0 "The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia."

As with all live streams, there are free codes you can redeem simply by logging into your account on the official Genshin Impact webpage and selecting the "redeem code" option from the menu. All free Primogem codes can be redeemed once per account and must be claimed before 12.00am (UTC-4) on July 10.

The event opened with the trailer for Version 2.0 "The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia," which you can view above. This includes a sneak preview of the new region, characters, and stories you'll see in the update on July 21.

Classed as an Archipelago, Inazuma is heavily influenced by the Electro element as well as the region's unique weather patterns. As you explore there are new environmental puzzles to complete and a range of NPCs to interact with. The region's story quests appear to be based around the idea of visions being confiscated and the conflicts this has led to.

We can also expect the return of Maguu Kenki, whom players encountered in the Golden Apple Archipelago, who returns as a World Boss.

Genshin Impact Version 2.0 "The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia," is set to launch on July 21, 2021 for PS5, PS4, PC, Android and iOS.

Genshin Impact Version 2.0 Out July 21, Adds Cross-Save And New Inazuma Location - PlayStation Universe

PlayStation Universe 09 July, 2021 - 10:08am

miHoYo has announced that the hugely anticipated Genshin Impact Version 2.0 will debut on July 21, bringing with it the much-requested Cross-Save feature alongside a brand new city and area to explore in the shape of Inamuza.

Genshin Impact Cross-Save will allow for progression sharing across PlayStation, PC, and mobile versions of the title, while Version 2.0 will also bring about a heap of new stories including main and side quests to tackle. In addition, there’s three new playable characters up for grabs — Ayaka, Yoimiya, and Saya.

As for Inazuma itself, miHoYo describes it as a place where players can bask in “ephemeral beauty everywhere,” and includes frequent weather changes in contrast to the perpetually sunny Mondstadt and Liyue. As such, you can expect strong sea breezes, flickering light and shadow, and thunderstorms.

Inazuma consist of six main islands, although players will only have access to three of them when Genshin Impact Version 2.0 launches. You’ll bump into beings of the friendly and not-so-friendly variety while exploring, including wandering samurais and a new branch of the Fatui.

Here’s a little more insight into the expansion via the PlayStation Blog:

Meanwhile, new boss enemies will be added to the map for Travelers to challenge and obtain more rewards. The Hypostasis family will see a new Pyro member joining – the Pyro Hypostasis. Strangely enough, the Perpetual Mechanical Array and a few other bizarrely-shaped machines similar to the Ruin Guards in Mondstadt and Liyue will also appear in Inazuma.

In addition to the new enemies, after its debut in Version 1.6, Maguu Kenki will also be found as a World Boss and a source for Character Level-Up Materials in Inazuma.

Elsewhere, the studio confirmed that PS5 and PS4 players will be able to hunt down a new selection of Trophies with Genshin Impact 2.0, while the game’s DualSense features have been further enhanced, so you can expect even more tactile feedback while drawing your bow and performing various actions.

Genshin Impact Version 2.0 arrives on July 21 for PS5, PS4, and PC.

Genshin Impact's New Inazuma Region Inspired By Studio Ghibli

Screen Rant 09 July, 2021 - 09:01am

Players have already taken notice of the influence, too, connecting the dots in myriad ways. Just recently, one fan created an animated short, My Neighbor Dodoco, modeled after the Studio Ghibli's seminal My Neighbor Totoro. The short features stunning animation and sound design, all paying homage to the classic animated film's iconic imagery. Notably, the animation sees Klee sitting atop a tree branch, accompanied by several small Dodoco creatures and another rather large one.

The latest Genshin Impact stream offered a deep dive on all things related to Update 1.7 and the advent of the brand-new Inazuma region. During the discussion, miHoYo concept artists noted that Inazuma's three levels, comprised of mountainous areas, towns, and underground spaces, were designed with Studio Ghibli-made creations in mind. Thus, players can expect to see plenty of the studio's DNA embedded in some of the areas and colors used throughout Inazuma.

Again, it's no surprise that the development crew at miHoYo borrowed heavily from Studio Ghibli creations. The film studio's work is deeply ingrained in popular culture, inspiring decades of creators in film, television, games, and other mediums of entertainment. Next fall, Studio Ghibli's contribution to the world will be immortalized at Ghibli Park in Japan, an amusement park that will morph Aichi Expo Memorial Park into five different Ghibli-themed attractions.

Genshin Impact launched in September 2020 on PC, PS4, and mobile platforms around the world. It quickly hit the ground running, too, managing to accumulate $100 million in revenue after only 13 days on the market. That momentum has yet to cease, with each new update attracting millions of players to the free-to-play experience. And countless more are ready to jump in on the fun, once miHoYo releases the long-awaited Nintendo Switch port, which, as of writing, still lacks concrete release date details.

Genshin Impact is available as a free-to-play title across PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, PS4, PS5, Android, and iOS platforms.

Genshin Impact 2.0 Release Date Falls in July, Adds Inazuma

Siliconera 09 July, 2021 - 04:35am

MiHoYo hosted a Genshin Impact version 2.0 livestream on July 9, 2021 to talk all about Inazuma. The goal was to provide insight into the new region and its characters. But also important, it let us know when the new patch would arrive. The Genshin Impact Inazuma region’s version 2.0 release date is July 21, 2021. Also, MiHoYo will have the stream archived on YouTube at 9am PT/12pm ET/6pm CET.

Version 2.0 means a lot of new adventures will be headed people’s way. First and foremost, it means the Inazuma region will finally be added to Genshin Impact when the release date comes up. That means a larger area to explore.

It also means that the Traveler will get a new element. At the moment, someone using Aether or Lumine can use Anemo and Geo abilities. After visiting Inazuma, people will add Electro to the list. (Eventually, the Travelers will be able to switch between all of the elements.)

There will also be new characters and stories. For example, Ayaka was a long-rumored character, and she will be playable and appear in the story. Also, it seems Kazuha will help us out. And the main storyline will continue.

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices. It will also come to the Nintendo Switch. The Genshin Impact version 2.0 release date is July 21, 2021, and it will add the Inazuma region.
