Genshin Impact 1.1 Content To Feature Four New Playable Characters

If you’re loving/hating the gacha system in Genshin Impact, well, this update isn’t going to change what worked. In fact, it’ll add four new characters in the already-large character gacha pool.

Genshin Impact’s 1.1 update, dubbed “A New Star Approaches”, will bring in the following heroes:

  • Childe from the Liyue story; he is now a 5-star hydro archer who can switch between melee and ranged attacks.
  • Zhongli, the funeral parlour consultant guy & the one in the story who is terrible at monetary negotiations. He is a 5-star Geo polearm wielder with petrify status attacks.
  • Xinyan, who has effective elemental combos & combat strategies.
  • Diona, who also has effective elemental combos & combat strategies.

The update will also add in a new quest which will end the Liyue chapter, an Unreconciled Stars seasonal event with its own series of quests and co-op challenges plus a 4-star Fischl reward, a new reputation system that gives region-specific rewards if you help out a particular area, new items that mark nearby Anemoculi and Geoculi collectibles, and a monster cameo based on Mihoyo company president Forrest Liu.

The update will be out on 11th November.
