Genshin Impact - Update 1.6

Genshin Impact’s latest update, “Midsummer Island Adventure”, is now available on all platforms and adds various new content and features to the game. Key among these is a new story quest for Klee, which takes place in a new limited-time area, and new 5-star character Kaedehara Kazuha. It’s worth noting that Kazuha will be available to earn in a future event wish.

As for the Midsummer Island Adventure, players will sail with Klee on a Waverider and partake in ship combat, destroying enemy towers along the way, along with racing and battling Maguu Kenki. Other new features include new outfits for Barbara and Jean along with a companion move-in for the Serenitea Pot. Companions who move into the housing can gain Companionship EXP and even present gifts if they like certain arrangements.

A new Archon Quest will be coming later that preps players for the “next part” of their journey. In the meantime, there are numerous limited-time World Quests to complete which provide Character EXP Materials, Mora and new recipes. Check out the patch notes here for more details.
