The release date for the upcoming Genshin Impact version 3.5 has been revealed. You can expect to continue your adventures in Teyvat on March 1st, when you'll be able to visit the Windblume Festival, enjoy exciting new adventures, and potentially add devastating new fighters to your lineup.

Spring is coming to Mondstadt, and to celebrate, the city is hosting the Windblume Festival. You can look forward to minigames like Ballads of Breeze, Floral Pursuit, and Breezy Snapshots, which will challenge your sense of rhythm, direction, and photographic aesthetics respectively. You'll also meet foreign guests from Sumeru at the festival, with a new adventure starring Collei, Tighnari, and Cyno ensuing.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Genshin Impact update without new characters. Pyro claymore wielder Dehya is joining the roster, bringing a fiery field that damages enemies and shields teammates. As well as Dehya, there's also Mika, a Cryo polearm user who also has access to a crossbow and a big party buff. 

Along with a rerun for Cyno, Dehya debuts as part of the Event Wish in the update's first half, later becoming part of the Standard Wish after update 3.6 lands. Dehya also comes with a story quest in update 3.5, letting you find out more about her. Mika, meanwhile, will debut in the latter half of version 3.5, alongside banner reruns for Kamisayo Ayaka and Shenhe.

Plenty more stuff is on the way as part of Genshin Impact 3.5. The Genius Invokation card game, which debuted as part of update 3.3, is getting a host of changes as the update goes on, and Hoyoverse is also promising more "add-on functions and optimizations". There's plenty to look forward to if you're hoping for more excuses to return to Teyvat soon.

As usual, the Genshin Impact presentation earlier also contained codes for free stuff, so here are those codes!

  • KARU3RG6NY65 - 100 Primogems, 10 Mystic Enhancement Ore
  • 5SRC28YNNYP9 - 100 Primogems, 5 Hero's Wit
  • SB8UJ9H7NH8V - 100 Primogems, 50,000 Mora

If you're a Prime Gaming subscriber, there are even more goodies up for grabs, as a series of Genshin Impact bundles will be available throughout the next couple of months. Redeeming at least four of those bundles will get you access to a special glider, so be sure to check out Hoyoverse's official FAQ for the promotion to read more about that.

Genshin Impact version 3.5 launches across PC, PlayStation, and mobile devices on March 1st. If you're just starting your epic journey through the world of Teyvat, make sure you don't miss our Genshin Impact guides for info on starting out, how to choose the best lineup, and more.
