A Genshin Impact fan is creating an interesting character design based on the popular Sumeru region which is expected to arrive in upcoming updates.
Genshin Impact is made up of seven different nations spread across the world of Teyvat. The game has already introduced three different nations, and with the end of the Inazuma arc, players might get the chance to explore a major new region quite soon.
Each Genshin Impact The region has a unique and specific design for playable characters and NPCs, which often leads to fans creating various skin concepts. Even though developer HoYoverse has yet to confirm the next major update, multiple leaks make it more than likely that Sumeru will be the next region to hit the game.
A recent article on the official Genshin Impact subreddit reveals an interesting character concept suitable for one of the new big regions. The concept created by Reddit user QAE0 has been well received in the Genshin Impact community as it garnered over 3.5,000 upvotes. Many replies in the comments section claim that the design is perfect because it is based on Middle Eastern and South Asian cultures, which could be part of the world that Sumeru is based on. It would also make sense since the game’s story already revealed that Sumeru consists of deserts and forests.
Even though the character is not equipped with a vision, the comments section has already started 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 might add curved weapons like the one featured in the art. One of the most exciting things about Sumeru’s arrival is the fact that he will be introducing a whole new element – Dendro. Of the seven Genshin Impact elements, Dendro is the only one that is not part of a playable character’s kit.
Bringing a new element to 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 revealed that Dendro will work best with Electro, Pyro, and Hydro. Leaks have also revealed more information about the two characters set to arrive shortly after Sumeru – the Dendro Archon and Collei. Archon Dendro, also known as the God of Wisdom, will serve as the protector of the entire region and will most likely play an important role in the stories to come.
As for the release date, Sumeru should arrive with Genshin Impact 3.0 update. Assuming the leaks about 2.8 being Inazuma’s latest update are true, Genshin Impact version 3.0 should arrive around mid-August this year. However, this release date could still be pushed back given that the upcoming version 2.7 of Genshin Impact has officially been delayed for a few weeks.
Genshin Impact is available on PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile devices, with a Nintendo Switch version in development.
