Genshin Impact is going from strength to strength as time goes on, quickly becoming one of the top games in the world, generating approximately $800 million in 2020.
Here is everything you need to know about the 1.4 update.
Latest News - Hu Tao Release Date Announced
Hu Tao has been anticipated by players for quite some time.
It has now been announced that Hu Tao will be the final banner of the 1.3 update, releasing on March 2nd until March 16th.
So, that rules out Hu Tao as being a 1.4 character, so who could be coming with the next update?
With each season comes a new seasonal event.
1.3 has focused on the Lantern Rites festival, taking place at Liyue.
Monstadt will see its own festival in the 1.4 update with the Windblume festival.
It is being rumoured that there will be a flying and shooting event, as well as a rhythm game to play.
This should keep players busy throughout the 1.4 update.
Is Rosaria Coming To The Game?
New details for Rosaria have been revealed, adding fuel to the fire that she could be the latest character to join the game in the upcoming update.
So far she has just remained an NPC in the game, despite being a part of the game for a long time.
Will Rosaria finally become playable in the next update?
The Genshin Impact 1.3 update is set to go live on February 3rd.
MiHoYo has stated that the current plan is to release new updates every 6 weeks.
This would put the 1.4 release date at some time around March 17th.
Since the 1.4 update is still quite far away, no trailer or official announcements have been made.
But for now, check out the 1.3 update trailer to get a glimpse at what to expect from future content updates.
No patch notes have been released for the 1.4 update.
As it gets closer to launch more information will become available.
Each update comes with new seasonal events.
The 1.3 update is centred around the Lantern Rites Festival in Liuye.
The event runs from February 3rd when the update goes live, starting off with "Invitation to Mundane Life", before switching to "Dance of Lanterns" on February 17th.
We can expect something similar in the 1.4 update.
It is believed that the 1.4 seasonal event will be called the Winterbloom Festival, but no further details are known at this time.
The 1.2 update saw the first major map change in Genshin Impact since it launched.
Dragonspine was added to the map, a new snow biome.
While we may see minor changes to the map in the coming updates, a large change like Dragonspine isn't expected any time soon.
Is Inazuma Coming?
Inazuma is one of the seven nations in Teyvat.

It is currently rumoured that the Inazuma area will be added to the game in the 1.6 update, which should be coming in June 2021.
The last change to the map that we saw was in the 1.2 update when the Dragonspine biome was added to the game.
A Nintendo Switch port of the game was expected to launch in September when Genshin Impact came out of beta.
Unfortunately, this version was delayed and so far there has been no official release date set.
It is expected to be announced after the Genshin Impact 1.3 update with the beta beginning in early 2021 and an expected full release in mid-late 2021.
