Genshin Impact 1.4 update comes with the Windblume Festival. miHoYo has started inviting players to reserve their spot. The invitation is a precursor to the Genshin Impact latest version slated to arrive on 17 March 2021.
Starting from Genshin Impact version 1.4, players with Rank 20 or above who have already finished the “Song of the Dragon and Freedom” questline are welcome to join new activities in the Windblume Festival.
Here is the release note describing what to expect in the Genshin Impact’s update number 1.4 on all platforms:
Allegedly, the Windblume Festival originated as an occasion to commemorate the liberation of Mondstadt 2,600 years ago. For the citizens of today, however, it has become the season to express true love and participate in all sorts of outdoor games. The Knights of Favonius and the Adventurers’ Guild will organize a series of mini-games and challenges for players to enjoy alone or with friends, with generous rewards including two festival-exclusive items — the Windblume Festival Commemorative Balloon and the Windsong Lyre, as well as a new 4-star weapon, Windblume Ode. Meanwhile, a new type of story quest with multiple endings available will give Travelers the opportunity to spend some quality time hanging out with Barbara, Noelle, Bennett, and Chongyun, creating a rich range of memories together.
In Version 1.4, more details about the Abyss Order and the fate of the Traveler’s long-lost sibling will be revealed. Travelers who continue their investigation with “Bough Keeper” Dainsleif will finally come face to face with the formidable Abyss Herald and learn some surprising secrets about the world’s first Ruin Guard at Stormterror’s Lair.
Two months after her first appearance in Dragonspine, “Thorny Benevolence” Rosaria will now be joining the game as the latest 4-star playable character. Wielding a polearm and the power of Cryo, Rosaria can quickly maneuver herself behind her enemy to attack from the rear. Her Elemental Burst unleashes a mighty slash, dealing high Cryo DMG, followed by constant bursts of AoE Cryo DMG to nearby enemies over a period of time.
New functions and optimizations will also be introduced to improve player experience. In Version 1.4, players can hold up to five Condensed Resin in their Inventory at any one time. Additionally, players can opt to lower their World Level to suit their needs both in Single-Player and Co-Op Mode.
As many expected, Genshin Impact’s success story is not surprising to anyone. According to Sensor Tower, the free-to-play game has already racked up $874 million since its launch. What’s more, this figure reflects revenue generated on mobile platforms alone with PC and console versions catapulting profit margins even further up.
