While Genshin Impact’s version 4.3 is short on new material, with no major expansions or missions, version 4.4 is one of the larger upgrades that will purportedly deliver a new expansion. As usual, we have multiple leaks revealing the expansion and other changes in the version.
Even ignoring leaks, version 4.4 is already shaping up to be a large patch as it approaches Liyue’s yearly Lantern Rite celebration in Genshin Impact, and it has always featured a sizable amount of material in the past.
Genshin 4.4 Release Date
Version 4.4 of Genshin Impact is scheduled to be published on January 31, 2024. While no official date has been set, HoYoverse normally releases a new version every six weeks, and because version 4.3 officially begins on December 20, January 31 is the most likely date for version 4.4, unless there are any unexpected delays.
Genshin 4.4 Leaks
According to trustworthy reports, the update will include some intriguing new features and content for gamers, such as new skins, a new location, and a new playable character.
One of the most anticipated elements of the Genshin Impact version 4.4 update is the addition of new skins for three Liyue characters: Ganyu and Shenhe. Other Liyue characters, such as Guizhong, Streetward Rambler, and Cloud Retainer, are said to have influenced these skins.
A Reddit user provided an image that looked like offline promotional material in China, showing the “Lion Dance boy,” Shenhe, and Ganyu in their new clothes and Cloud Retainer. Another rumour claims that Xingqiu would get a new costume as well. Another Telegram user claims that Ganyu’s costume is called Mysterious Jade Fragrance, Xingqiu’s is called Rain Transforms the Bamboo, and Shenhe’s is called Cold Flower Secret Dew.
All of the outfits are rumoured to be four-star, according to a leak by a Telegram user named Genshin Meow, with Xingqiu’s being free and available through an event. The user also claims that Cloud Retainer will be a Catalyst user, brandishing a fan-shaped Catalyst.
Another significant feature in version 4.4 is the establishment of a new location named Chenyu Vale, which is located between Sumeru and Fontaine. Chenyu Vale is a hilly and riverine region known for its tea culture and scenic beauty.
The region is said to be at the upper left corner of Qingce Village. Finally, the most startling leak of version 4.4 is the introduction of a new playable character: Cloud Retainer, one of the four Adepti who protect Liyu.
