Genshin Coming To Epic Games Store
There's also no word on whether Genshin Impact will have cross-progression features going forwards but it's notoriously a gacha game where rerolling involves having to create a new account altogether.
If you're new, though, you can throw the code "GenshinEpic" into the in-game redemption system and get yourself a little something to help you start out. We're not sure if this works on other platforms, yet.
What to Expect in Genshin Impact 1.6
Genshin Impact 1.6 will see the Traveler continue on their journey, this time heading toward Inazuma, home of the Electro Archon.
With the region currently blocked to outsiders, it will be up to Beidou and her Crux Fleet to smuggle the Traveler into Inazuma, traversing multiple islands in the region before finally ending up on the mainland.
This most likely means Genshin Impact players will be introduced to boat travel, swapping maps similar to how they currently do now between Teyvat and their private home in the Serenitea Pot.
