For the full patch notes and to found out everything about the latest update, check out our 1.1 update guide here.
How To Start Bounties
Bounties are a new addition to Genshin Impact and were added in the recent 1.1 update.
To start a bounty players need to the visit the City Reputation NPC in either Mondstadt or Liyue to start a bounty.
The bounties are quests where you have to defeat a tough enemy at a certain part of the world.
The area that you need to go to is identified by a large yellow circle on the map.
Where To Find The Enemies
Once you get into the yellow circle you will be told to find tracks using your Elemental Sight.
You will then notice blue energy leading you in the direction, keep following the energy until you reach the target.
First it will take you to 3 different locations, then you either need to defeat an enemy, collect an item, or harvest a resource.
Once these are completed the energy will lead you to the bounty target.
Then the target needs to be eliminated, then you just need to return to the NPC and collect the reward.
The Genshin Impact 1.1 update will add compatibility for the upcoming Playstation 5 console.
Genshin Impact will continue to run using the PS4 version of the game, this is to make it easier to release rather than having to create a separate build for the new console.
On launch day, November 12th-19th depending on region, players will be able to download and jump into Genshin Impact on their brand new system.
miHoYo have confirmed that the PS5 version will offer better graphics and faster loading times.
