A new trailer for Genshin Impact 1.4 update has been published ahead of its unveiling livestream, confirming Rosaria as the game’s next heroine. After the organization recently released the last part of the already existing 1.3 update, which finally saw the addition of Genshin Impact’s newest character Hu Tao after weeks of leaks and speculation. Now, developer MiHoYo has been steadily revealing details on the 1.4 update.
MiHoYo revealed at a recent developers’ meeting that they plan to make updates to the game’s resin system, including growing the maximum amount of condensed resin that a player may have at any given moment.
The developer also mentioned that it would be making improvements to Genshin Impact’s adventure rank and world level systems, but exact specifics will be revealed during the 1.4 update reveal live stream.
Several hours before the start of the reveal live stream, MiHoYo posted the trailer for Genshin Impact’s 1.4 update. Rosaria will eventually be added to the game’s roster when the update drops on March 17, 2021, according to the teaser titled “Invitation of Windblume.”
The addition of Rosaria to the game’s 1.4 update fully confirms the Genshin Impact reports and rumors that have been circulating over the past few weeks. Venti will be eligible for players to summon again in conjunction with Rosaria’s arrival. When the game first launched in September 2020, Venti was the game’s first limited-time 5-star character, and only a few players were able to summon him.
The game’s upcoming Windblume Festival gathering, which will feature many new mini-games analogous to the Theater Mechanicus from the recently concluded Lantern Rite Festival, was also shown off in the 1.4 update trailer.
The trailer also shows off a number of different guns that players would be able to get as part of the update, as well as what seems to be a brand-new boss that players will be forced to battle, presumably via the game’s main story quests. Finally, the trailer teases many upcoming activities, including a special Oceanid battle, an arena-style game, and new optional questlines.
While the 1.2 update launched the new Dragonspine area and the 1.3 update focused mostly on Liyue, it appears that the 1.4 update of Genshin Impact would return players to Mondstadt, where it all started. The return of Venti, the Anemo Archon, and the release of Rosaria, a member of the region’s Church of Favonius, seems particularly fitting for the occasion.
