Beside delving further into the history of Liyue with Zhongli, we will meet new characters in this update, Eula and Yanfei.

Players will be playing the game with native support for PlayStation®5 bringing enhanced visuals and game performance.
Genshin Impact Version 1.5 Update Trailer
Genshin Impact is a free-to-play open-world action RPG that brings players to the visually stunning world of Teyvat. Currently, players can explore both Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor, two of the seven major cities in Teyvat. Each city has unique cultures, stories, and offers a diversity of creatures, monsters, and secrets for players to discover. Further cities, stories, characters, and seasonal events will be released as the game progresses.
Version 1.5 offers players plenty of opportunities to learn about others from the past. Those interested in Liyue’s history can continue the story with Zhongli in the second installment. Back in Mondstadt, players can continue their story with Noelle in a new series of Hangouts Events. Later, Traveler can also spend some time with Diona, the popular bartender of The Cat’s Tail.
New Character in Update Version 1.5
Two new playable characters, Eula and Yanfei, will also be added to the game. Five-star character, Eula, is the Spindrift Knight and Captain of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company. Eula is a claymore with the power of Cryo. She can deal with AoE damage and increase her resistance to interruption with her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst.
Meanwhile, Yanfei is a four-star Pyro-using catalyst wielder. Born in Liyue during peacetime, Yanfei is a young half-human, half-illuminated-beast who dedicates her life to studying, interpreting, and advising her clients on Liyue’s laws.
New Bosses for Materials
Two new formidable enemies will also be found in Version 1.5, waiting for adventurers to fight and loot. An all-new Trounce Domain opponent, Azhdaha, the “Lord of Vishaps,” offers rare rewards once a week for travelers who manage to conquer his fierce attacks, use of multiple elements, and ability to alter the battlefield terrain.
In a new chilling addition to Dragonspine, the Cryo Hypostasis will make an appearance as a new Boss Enemy. Just like other enemies in the Hypostasis series, the Cryo Hypostasis has a unique pattern of attack. He drops precious resources when defeated, including Character Level-Up Materials.
Genshin Impact Housing System in Real!
With Genshin Impact Version 1.5 update, the Travelers will finally find a home in Teyvat in the form of their very own personal realm, accessible with a brand-new item — the Serenitea Pot. Created by Liyue’s adepti, players can build and decorate their homes as they wish.
Different house and realm styles will be available, each with plenty of space for outdoor recreation and indoor luxury. miHoyo will introduce new gameplay improvements, including halving the cost of claiming the first three Trounce Domain rewards per week and doubling the amount of Companionship EXP earned in Co-Op Mode.
miHoYo also reveals pieces of concept art for Inazuma, the third major city and region of Genshin Impact. The latest concept art images provides a glimpse of Inazuma City and several landmarks in the surrounding area. Please stay tuned for more!
