Genshin Impact will shortly release Xianyun and Gaming as part of its 4.4 Lantern Rite upgrade. It will transport the Traveler and Paimon back to Liyue for the annual festival.
However, little is known about where the narrative would go after the celebrations. Given that the upgrades after version 4.5 will be critical in establishing the stage for Natlan, some players may be wondering about what to expect from the game.
This article presents a roadmap for Genshin Impact, encompassing leaks for all versions from 4.5 to 5.1. We also look into new characters and prospective questlines, as disclosed by renowned leakers.
