miHoYo has confirmed that Genshin Impact’s 1.4 version update will launch on March 17th across PC, PS4, iOS, Android, and PS5 via backward compatibility. The new update is called Invitation to Windblume which is a festival that apparently started as one that celebrated the liberation of Mondstadt 2,600 years ago. In update 1.4 The Knights of Favonius and Adventurer’s Guild will host different minigames and give challenges to players. The trailer can be viewed below.
Those challenges and minigames will not be the only things players will be able to experience. There will be a new 4 star weapon called Windblume Ode. There are also commerative items called the Windblume Festival Commerative Balloon and the Windblume Lyre. There will be new story quests too that will have multiple endings with Barbara, Noelle, Bennett, and Chongyun being the characters that will be present in these quests. Speaking of characters, Rosaria will be returning as a 4-star playable character. She will be armed with a polearm and have cryo abilities. Players will also face off against the Abyss Herald as long as they continue the investigation with Bough Keeper Dainsleif.
To access the content of Invitation to Windblume players will need to be minimum Adventure Rank 20, and have completed the Song of the Dragon and Freedom questline. Update 1.4 will also add new optimisations and functionality. From March 17th, players will be able to hold five condensed resin, and will also be able to lower the World Level in both single player and co-op.
Genshin Impact was one of our favourite RPGs of 2019 and one that has found a thriving global fanbase. Miguel reviewed the game at launch on PlayStation 4, awarding Genshin Impact an 8 out of 10 – here’s what he had to say:
Genshin Impact needs to be played to be believed. This is an addictive open-world adventure with gorgeous art and unique combat…and it’s free! The character designs are sharp and beautiful, while the pastel-style world itself is full of jaw-dropping colour and natural vistas…and it’s free! Sure, there’s the admittedly stingy gacha system, but if you just want an immersive and peaceful world to climb and fly around in for hours, then Genshin Impact is for you.
