Excitement builds among Genshin Impact fans as Version 3.7 approaches, but attention is already turning to the rumored leaks for the upcoming Version 3.8, particularly with the anticipation of Fontaine’s arrival.
While the focus may currently be on Fontaine, developers are hard at work preparing thrilling content for the highly anticipated summer update. However, unlike the previous two summers, it appears that players will not be revisiting the beloved Golden Apple Archipelago.
Golden Apple Archipelago, a limited-time tropical vacation spot guarded by Klee’s mother, Alice, captivated players during the summers of 2021 and 2022. Yet, respected leakers suggest that the fan-favorite location will not make a return in the Summer of 2023. Instead, a brand new region will take its place, ushering in fresh adventures for players.
Despite Fontaine being scheduled for release in Version 4.0. Genshin Impact enthusiasts can catch a glimpse of the Hydro-based realm through a new limited-time region called Veluriyam Mirage.
The region centers around the Oceanids, originating from Fontaine, and will showcase various innovative mechanisms that celebrate Fontaine’s ingenuity.
While the exact details of the region’s fantasy-themed elements remain undisclosed, players can expect an immersive experience.
Veluriyam Mirage will not be integrated into the main Genshin Impact map. Still, it will exist separately, much like the mysterious realm of Enkanomiya, the underground sections of the Chasm, and the now-retired Golden Apple Archipelago.
Within this limited-time map, an event will take place, offering players the opportunity to obtain a free copy of the character Layla by participating in a series of engaging mini-games.
Furthermore, rumors circulate, suggesting the existence of a mysterious entity named Necalevia, although the current knowledge about them remains limited, allowing ample room for speculation.
Genshin Impact New Characters
As per the leaks, in version 3.8 of Genshin Impact. No new 5-Star or 4-Star characters will be introduced. However, leaked information about the upcoming banners has caused great excitement among dedicated fans.
Phase 1 will feature Eula and Klee, marking the end of Eula’s year and a half absence from banners. Rumors circulate that Sangonomiya Kokomi and the Wanderer will be the main event participants in Phase 2, taking the spotlight in their respective banners.
Leaked details have also revealed the 4-Star characters accompanying the Version 3.8 banners in Genshin Impact. Phase 1 will introduce Mika, Rosaria, and Razor as support characters for Klee and Eula.
Given Mika’s affiliation with the Knights of Favonius and her strong synergy with Eula, it comes as no surprise that she will join Eula’s banner.
Phase 2, on the other hand, will showcase Thoma, Yanfei, and Faruzan, representing the less prominent nations in the Mondstadt-heavy Phase 1.
Genshin Impact 3.8 new Skin Leaks
Historically, the events in the Golden Apple Archipelago have coincided with the release of new character skins in Genshin Impact.
In 2021, Jean and Barbara delighted players as they donned their beach vacation outfits, while in 2022, Fischl enchanted fans with her fantastical princess attire.
Rumors suggest that Version 3.8 will introduce new skins for Kaeya and Klee as the tradition of enhancing existing characters’ aesthetics continues.
In another exciting development, rumors indicate that Kaeya will finally have his own Hangout event in Genshin Impact 3.8. This highly anticipated addition is particularly significant, as Kaeya has been a character since the game’s initial release in Version 1.0.
This raises hopes that other characters with Story Quests but no Hangout events, such as Amber, Lisa, and Razor, may also receive their own Hangouts in the future. Additionally, Candace, Yanfei, and Kazuha will be joining the character card lineup for the Genius Invokation TCG.
Kazuha’s inclusion in the card game aligns with his recent introduction in the main event of Genshin Impact Version 3.7, making him a welcome addition for TCG enthusiasts.
As Genshin Impact Version 3.7 draws near, fans eagerly anticipate the upcoming updates and the exciting new content that Version 3.8 will bring.
The leaks and rumors surrounding Fontaine and the absence of Golden Apple Archipelago have sparked discussions and fueled speculation, leaving players hungry for more details and eager to embark on fresh adventures in the ever-expanding world of Teyvat.
