A Genshin Impact fan creates an interesting character design based on the popular Sumeru region that should be coming in the next few updates.
Genshin Impact it is made up of seven different nations spread across the world of Teyvat. The game has already featured three different nations, and with the Inazuma arc coming to an end, players might have the option to explore a major new region quite soon.
Every Genshin Impact region has a unique and specific design for playable characters and NPCs, often leading fans to come up with various skin concepts. Although developer HoYoverse has yet to confirm the next major update, various leaks make it more likely that Sumeru will be the next region to hit the game.
A recent post on the official site Genshin Impact subreddit reveals an interesting character concept suitable for one of the new major regions. The concept made by Reddit user QAE0 was well received on the Genshin Impact community as it gathered over 3.5k upvotes. Numerous responses in the comments section state that the design feels right as it is based on Middle Eastern and South Asian cultures, which could be the part of the world that Sumeru is based on. This would also make sense as the game’s story has already revealed that Sumeru consists of deserts and forests.
Although the character is not equipped with a vision, the comments section has already begun to theorize that it fits the design of a Geo character. Fans are also hoping that with the introduction of the new region, developer HoYoverse will be able to add curved weapons like the one featured in the art. One of the most exciting things about Sumeru’s arrival is the fact that she will be introducing an entirely new item: Dendro. of the seven Genshin Impact items, Dendro is the only one not part of a playable character’s kit.
Bringing a new element into the game will likely have a huge impact on the game’s combat system, as it will introduce multiple elemental reactions to Genshin Impact. Previous leaks have revealed that Dendro will work best with Electro, Pyro, and Hydro. The leaks have also revealed more information about the two characters that should arrive shortly after Sumeru: Dendro Archon and Collei. Archon Dendro, also known as the God of Wisdom, will serve as the protector of the entire region, and he will most likely play a major role in the upcoming stories.
When it comes to the release date, Sumeru is expected to arrive with Genshin Impact update 3.0. Assuming the leaks about 2.8 being Inazuma’s last update are true, Genshin Impact version 3.0 should arrive in mid-August this year. However, this release date could still be delayed considering that the upcoming 2.7 version of Genshin Impact it has been officially delayed a couple of weeks.
Genshin Impact is available for PC, PS4, PS5 and mobile devices, with a Nintendo Switch version in development.
