Lyney will receive his first banner in Phase 1 of Version 4.0. The magician duo, Lyney and Lynette, were featured back in 2020 in the Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview: Travail, and ever since then, their unique designs have captured the hearts of Genshin fans worldwide.

It comes as no surprise that the charismatic performer will be the opening act for the launch of Fontaine. Lyney’s banner will include his younger sister, also magician's assistant, Lynette.

Alongside Lyney in Phase 1, the fan-favourite intelligence agent from Liyue, Yelan, will make her return.

While strolling through Quartier Lyonnais in the Court of Fontaine, players will come across the quaint Lechots Clockwork Workshop. To boost the workshop's business, Genshin players will be tasked with helping the workshop owner create Champion Duelist-themed clockwork toys. A total of 3 mini-game events or “experiments” will be conducted to properly build these toys.

First, we have "Torrential Turbulent Charge", which involves underwater parkour gameplay. Players aim to pass through speed-boosting Turbulent Rings to charge and glide through the water while dodging various obstacles along the way.

Next, the "Efficacy Testing Simulation Arena" is a combat-based minigame. Players will engage in combat against opponents in Fontaine’s wilderness, such as Slimes, Hilichurls, and other common enemies. Additionally, players will face off against new opponents, Clockwork Meka, which are exclusive to Fontaine.

Finally, there's "Dance Dance Resolution", a rhythm minigame that incorporates music gameplay. In this experiment, players control a “Toy Adventurer” as it moves down a track. The goal is to follow the beat of the music and slam the hammer down at the right moment to hit the toys lining both sides of the track.

Genshin Impact 4.0 event "Relic Records: Creations of the Hydro Nation"

Along with all the exciting new story quests and characters coming with the launch of Fontaine, there will be four region-exclusive events for players to enjoy and collect valuable rewards from in Version 4.0! These events are geared towards ensuring that players can quickly get acquainted with the nation of Fontaine.

"Relic Records: Creations of the Hydro Nation" is the first event in Version 4.0, offering players the chance to quickly familiarise themselves with Fontaine's ecology. To complete the event, players must collect various types of materials or defeat specific opponents, all of which are local specialties or monsters native to Fontaine.

"Studies in Light and Shadow: A Fontaine of Enchantment" is a photography event. Players will be required to follow instructions to take photos of specific scenery or creatures within the nation. Understanding that players may not be fully acquainted with Fontaine, the Genshin developers have provided recommended spots on the event page to better facilitate the completion of the event.

"Verdict of Blades" offers a familiar combat challenge event with an intriguing twist. In addition to regular combat gameplay, each challenge features its own unique "Blade Mirage" mechanism. These "Blade Mirage" mechanisms provide buffs that players can strategically utilise to their advantage during the battles.
