Genshin Impact dropped a major 3.0 update with a new region, characters, fresh content, and much more. The latest update of HoYoverse’s RPG brought the Sumeru region along with heroes Dori, Collei, and Tighnari. However, content refresh keeps rolling on and now leakers have managed to scoop up important details pertaining to Genshin Impact 3.1 update even before its release.
In the current Genshin Impact 3.0, a part of the Sumeru region is open to players. The whole region is carved into two distinct parts containing desert and lush green jungle sections. As it seems, at least a section of the desert region is going to arrive in the version 3.1 update. This discovery about the map comes thanks to a Genshin leaker UBatcha who usually has a reliable track record.
Although the tweet in which they posted the information is taken down. That said, as we all know, the internet never forgets. Some enthusiasts saved the picture before deletion. Click on the image below to see it in full resolution.
If you look at the map above, Sumeru’s dry desert region consists of a large barren area. UBatcha also said in a subtle manner that the image shows only a third of Sumeru’s desert region. So an extensive portion of the region may open up in updates at some point in the future.
It appears that version 3.1 will offer the desert chuck with these three main areas: The Sandplain, The Downwind Erosion, and The Windward Erosion. Moreover, there are some giant structures peppered across the map, including what seems like a pyramid.
Furthermore, if you inspect the leaked map image closely, a type of settlement becomes visible, ensconced in the middle of terrain predominated by the jagged hills surrounding a semi-circular water segment. Guessing from the appearance, the desert settlement resembles the one teased at the end of the Genshin Impact Gamescom trailer and is more likely where you’ll greet new characters specific to the region.
Genshin Impact is available on PC, PS5, PS4, and mobile devices. Update 3.0 is now out and version 3.1 should arrive at the end of September.
