Hoyoverse has released new information about the upcoming Genshin Impact version 3.6. Titled "A Parade of Providence", the update is launching on April 12th across PC, consoles, and mobile devices. It'll bring the first Akademiya Extravaganza, which has lots of minigames to enjoy, as well as two new characters, a brand new area to explore, and much more.
First up, the Akademiya Extravaganza is a celebration where you can learn more about Teyvat's most prestigious institution. There will be six minigames, each designed to show one of the Six Darshan's principal interests. For instance, the Rtawahist Darshan game has you lining up stars with an astrolabe, while the Kshahrewar Darshan sees you trying to build a road using as few materials as possible.
If this doesn't float your boat, you'll find a brand new area to explore in Sumeru, complete with wastelands and a welcome oasis to stop and rest at. You'll use the mysterious Pari to help you fly around this area, finding secrets and unlocking mysteries. There will also be a new weekly boss in the Trounce Domain, and you can learn more about that boss on the new story quest offered by Nahida.
Of course, it wouldn't be a Genshin Impact update without new characters to add to your lineup. Baizhu is a new five-star Catalyst-wielding doctor with a gentle disposition. He's a Dendro user who can heal your team. Kaveh, meanwhile, is a four-star claymore user who also wields the power of Dendro. You'll also get reruns for Nahida and Nilou in the first round of Event Wishes, with Baizhu and Kaveh debuting in the second half along with a Ganyu rerun.
As well as new information about Genshin Impact version 3.6, today's Special Program also introduced another round of codes, which you can use to grab some goodies. These codes are only valid until midnight tomorrow (or tonight), so make sure to snap them up while you can. Here are today's codes.

It's all go for Hoyoverse right now. Not only is Genshin Impact still going strong with content updates two and a half years after its original release, but the studio's newest project, Honkai: Star Rail, amassed 3.5 million pre-registrations in just 9 days. Looks like Hoyoverse has no intention of slowing down anytime soon.
Genshin Impact version 3.6 arrives on PC, PlayStation consoles, and mobile devices on April 12th. Make sure to check out our Genshin Impact guides if you're just getting started in the game; they'll help you acclimatize to the beautiful but deadly world of Teyvat.
