In a recent update, Genshin Impact gave a makeover to some of the placeholder models in Mondstadt. Even though Mondstadt is the oldest region in the game, players still love it because it’s where every Traveler begins their journey in the world of Teyvat.
Mondstadt is the first nation you see in Genshin Impact, but right now, it’s the smallest area because no new parts have been added since update 1.1. Lately, there have been rumors that players will get to explore more of the Anemo region soon.
A Reddit user named Substantial_Fan_9582 shared some exciting pictures. They reveal changes made by HoYoverse to the model representing the northern part of Mondstadt.
In these images, HoYoverse removed many mountains from the placeholder model. This got players thinking that the Mondstadt expansion might come sooner than expected.
The changes also support earlier leaks suggesting that the expansion won’t have as much new playable land as other regions. To give you an idea, the newly finished Sumeru region is bigger than both Mondstadt and Liyue together.
Maybe, in the upcoming Windblume Festival, we might explore new areas in the Anemo region. This festival happens every year in Anemo. It usually comes after the Lantern Rite Festival in version 4.4. Right now, the game is mostly focused on the new Fontaine region and its characters.
In the latest Genshin Impact update 4.1, a new character named Neuvillette has been added. Neuvillette is a powerful Hydro character and serves as the Chief Justice in the Fontaine region. The story unfolding in the game reveals that Neuvillette is stronger than many players initially thought, and this strength is evident in a brief battle between him and Tartaglia.
Mondstadt might not be the only place getting a bigger map soon. Players think Liyue might also get more areas to explore. Even though Fontaine and Liyue are connected, there’s still a big chunk of land between them that hasn’t been explored yet.
