Genshin Impact's Version 1.5 "Beneath the Light of Jadeite" is coming on April 28, 2021. It will explore the history of Liyue with Zhongli, and have players meet new characters such as Eula and Yanfei. Players will also establish a personal realm in Teyvat, and will soon be able to opt in for a "next-generation Genshin Impact experience" which means that there will be native support for PlayStation 5 enhanced visuals and game performance.
What's in Genshin Impact Version 1.5?
Players will be able to start the second installment of Zhongli's story quest while continuing Noelle's story. There are also new hangout events in Mondstadt with Diana, the bartender of The Cat's Tail, that gives players new Hangout Events.
The five-star character, Eula, is a Spindrift Knight and Captain of Favonius Reconnaissance Company. She wields a claymore and uses Cryo to deal AoE damage and increase her resistance to interruption with her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst. Yanfei is a four-star character who wields Pyro and catalyst. Yanfei is a half-human, half-illuminated beast who studies, interprets, and advises her clients on Liyue's laws.
There are two new enemies to be found in Version 1.5. The first is the new Trounce Domain opponent, Azhdaha, the "Lord of Vishaps", who offers rare rewards once a week. He uses multiple elements and has the ability to alter the battlefield's terrain. The second new enemy is Cryo Hypostasis, who is a new Boss Enemy. He has a unique pattern of attack and can provide precious resources when defeated such as Character Level-Up Materials.
Travelers will finally have a new home in Teyvat in their own personal realm, which is accessible through the Serenitea Pot. In the realm, players will be able to build and decorate their own homes both indoors and outdoors.
There's also some gameplay improvements being made, such as halving the cost of the first three Trounce Domain rewards per week and doubling the amount of Companionship EXP earned in co-op mode.
