Genshin Impact 40 Update Launches Fontaine New Playable Characters New Features and MoreGenshin Impact 4.0 Update Launches Fontaine, New Playable Characters, New Features, and More

Currently one of the most popular action games, Genshin Impact is about to gain even more popularity and content with the addition of a new region in version 4.0. The next territory Fontaine, the nation of justice, was just disclosed in a few details by the two-time award-winning game for the best continuing game, and the information is quite awesome. Here is a summary of all the information you need to know about Genshin Impact 4.0 Fontaine, which HoyoVerse has finally verified via an official stream.


Genshin Impact 4.0 Release Date

Given that each patch lasts 42 days and that the Genshin Impact 3.8 release date was on July 5th, you may anticipate that the Genshin Impact 4.0 release date will be on August 16th.

The Genshin Impact 4.0 Archon Quest “As Light Falls Without a Reason” trailer is available above.

Upcoming Characters in Genshin Impact 4.0

The upcoming characters pertaining to the new region are one of the things that players look eagerly for the most in new versions, and while a large number of 4.0 characters have leaked, the majority of them will arrive as the Fontaine story progresses, and a large number of them will arrive in the subsequent 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2 updates.

Lyney and Lynette were the first Fontaine characters to be displayed in the Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview video, and they’ll be the first of many to meet us when we journey to the Nation of Justice in the Genshin Impact 4.0 update. Lyney has a 5-star Pyro Bow and Lynette has a 4-star Anemo sword.

According to earlier reports, The Hydro Archon nicknamed Focalors or Furine will wield a sword and make her debut in the 4.2 patches as a support/buff character. Again, given the information was leaked over four months before Fontaine, giving Hoyoverse ample opportunity to alter the timing of character releases, we advise you to treat this information with caution. It appears that Navia will also have a significant role to play in the Archon quest.

A few characters from Sumeru, Inazuma, Liuye, and Mondstadt appear alongside those from Fontaine. In addition, just as Wanderer (Scaramouche) made the move in Sumeru, Arlecchino, one of the 11 harbingers of the Fatui, should be making an appearance in Fontaine.

She is said to be a 5-star character with Sword and Pyro vision. Although, based on Hoyoverse’s track record, she may be playable in 4.6 or 4.7 updates, which also tells us she won’t be playable this year, there is still little evidence to imply that she will be a playable character.

We will still need to rely on leaks regarding the Hydro traveler as the 4.0 broadcast didn’t show anything about characters save the sibling three. Hydro Traveler’s kit has leaked from a trustworthy source and it appears to be rather impressive.

Banners in Genshin Impact 4.0

The Fontaine twins Lyney and Lynette plus Yelan will appear in the first part of the Genshin Impact 4.0 banners. Lyney is a 5-star Pyro Bow user, while Lynette is an Anemon Sword user, according to the leaks. Zhongli and Tartaglia will line up in the second half.

Events in Genshin Impact 4.0


Players will receive a free Bennett after the main event in version 4.0. This is probably also because Lyney, a Pyro DPS, will get along well with Bennett and is one of Bennett’s favorite characters. Additionally, those with adventure ranks of 25 and higher will receive a free Lynette. The Genshin Impact 4.0 Events are listed below.

  • Lay Line Overflow
  • Studies in Light and Shadow: A Fontaine of Enchantment – Photography Challenge
  • Verdict of Blades – Combat Challenge
  • Relic Records: Creations of the Hydro Nation – Exploration and Collection Challenge
  • Mega Meka Melee – Underwater Parkours, Combat Challenge, and Rhythm Game

Fontaine Map in Genshin Impact 4.0

The Genshin Impact 4.0 live broadcast has shown sneak peeks of the subsurface maps, although it is still unclear which one goes where. Though there is currently no official map, we can see through leaks that the Nation of Justice is closer to the north of the desert and that there is a lot of space between Sumeru and Fontaine. The next regions of the map could be able to fill the gap.

Having said that, Fontaine appears to be smaller, if not the same size as Sumeru’s rainforests. It’s very much proven that there are several points of entrance, and they should all lead to Fontaine. One of them is the location where we first encounter the wounded Fontaine NPC Julien.

Hoyoverse released a new trailer that shows us the inner workings of the court in the nation of wisdom, as well as the first official appearances of Focalors, the Hydro Achon, Wriothesley, the police officer, Neuvilette, the president of the supreme court, Charolette, Waghild, the nurse, and Navia, linked with the navy. In addition, we got a sneak peek at Arlecchino, one of the next playable harbingers.

Both on land and in the sea, Fontaine will conduct its exploration. Underwater, characters will have an oxygen bar and can submerge for a while. It is unknown if this will remain constant throughout the game or rise in accordance with the level of the Statue of the Seven, or whether it will simply be affected by the Statuary of Fontaine. It stands out and is blue. We can see undersea exploration well in the official pictures.

The major land on the ground is divided into two parts: the region above with the Fontaine court and high-rise buildings where wealthy residents live, and the underground section populated by Fontaine’s poor residents.

Fontaine Exploration Mechanics in Genshin Impact 4.0

The preview showed the Traveler using his Hydro skills, which he’ll most likely obtain by touching one of the nation’s seven statues. Because the teaser showed the traveler exploring the underwater world, many people assumed that it would be not possible to explore with other characters. However, as disclosed by one of the most notable Genshin leakers, StepLeaks, this does not appear to be the case.

When the Traveler releases a slash to open chests underwater, it doesn’t appear to be a skill but rather a device or a general exploring function that kicks in as soon as a character enters the water.

Since Genshin Impact 4.0 won’t be released for another month, nothing is known about the adventure and little was displayed in the 4.0 live stream. As we come closer to the formal release, though, more things ought to come out.

New Features and Upgrades in Genshin Impact 4.0

Version 3.8 adds a few additional quality-of-life elements, and it appears that Hoyoverse is far from finished. According to leaks, the following modifications will be included in Genshin Impact 4.0.

Inventory Storage Capacity Increased

Following the release of 4.0, the storage limit for Artifacts will be increased from 1500 to 1800, a significant increase. This should allow you more room to farm for forthcoming Fontaine artifacts, which have also been leaked recently.

New Artifact Strongboxes

The tenacity of the Millelith, Shimenawa’s Reminiscence, Pale Flame, Husk of Opulent Dreams, Vermillion Hereafter, Echoes of an Offering, Ocean-Hued Calm, Emblem of Severed Fate — according to a fresh leak — we may be receiving new artifact strongboxes. It should be easier to harvest necessary artifacts if you give away the ones you don’t need.

Observable TCG Duels

Another fantastic addition to Genshin Impact 4.0 is the ability to witness TCG duels amongst friends. If you don’t want anyone to see your secret plans, you may disable this option and keep your duels private.

New Party Animations

Genshin’s party UI has been unappealing, but not for long though! According to leaks, version 4.0 will include modifications to the “Edit party” UI as well as new animations for the characters who join your party.

However, the new animations appear to be confined to specific characters for the time being. In any case, we recommend that you take this information with a grain of salt. A fresh leak reveals more details regarding the future party UI, including the ability for users to customize the background. This is how it seems.

I am a gamer interested in Fortnite mostly, but I play with great enthusiasm anything that I can put my hands on for my PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Do not go into the sideways!
