Genshin Impact 5.0 update and leaks

Natlan, a future Pyro nation that is expected to be included in Version 5.0, is much anticipated by the Genshin Impact community. As the trip across the Tevyat nations draws to a gradual end, this will be the sixth major region of the game. Challenges, quests, lores, new characters, and more await you in every new place you visit.

Now, there have been fresh leaks about the Genshin 5.0 update and some of its intriguing features have been revealed by well-known sources like Gura and Plum Team Leaks. It is reported that the new Natlan region in the update would stretch across the entire map of Sumeru, and new mechanics for exploration will be included, along with new artifact domains and strongboxes.

Below is all that is known about the Genshin 5.0 update thus far.

Genshin Impact 5.0 Release Date

No, there isn't a set Genshin Impact 5.0 release date. But, players can anticipate HoYoverse's release somewhere in late July or early August, given its 6-week timeline.

Also, we can expect HoYoverse the drop new hints about the upcoming updates and features during the 4.7 Livestream, which might happen on June 7, 2024.

Now, apart from the speculated date, numerous leaks concerning Genshin Impact 5.0 have surfaced, and we have detailed what we currently know below:

Genshin Impact 5.0 Map

Leaks have revealed that the layout of Natlan's map will resemble Sumeru's from Version 3.1. This implies that there will be a lot of exploring and that the region will be big.

In version 3.1, the Dendro Nation saw a massive map expansion in Sumeru that included the Great Red Sea desert. Hence, if the leaks are true, the Genshin Natlan map would rank among the biggest maps to be offered in a single version update.

Genshin Impact 5.0 New Mechanics: Exploration and Mount

The most recent rumors indicate that Version 5.0 of the game will bring in all-new "Quick Exploration" features. The characters Hydro and Cryo, who will gain significance following the release of Natlan, will drive these new mechanics.

Aside from that, the Natlan exploration features may include the ability for players to mount dragons. This would be an easy way to explore the forthcoming map, much like Four-Leaf Sigils and Waveriders, which have been well-received by the Genshin Impact community.

While details are still few, there is a possibility that the 4.8 update may contain information on dragon riding, as Hxg_diluc suggests that Durin, the dragon from Dragonspine that crashed during the major disaster may appear in the 4.8 events.

Genshin Impact 5.0 Artifacts

Genshin 5.0 update will introduce a new Artifact set tailored to enhance the Quick Exploration mechanics, according to the leaks. Among the several new artifacts, rumors suggest that we might get a few that bolster the positions of Hydro and Cryo characters in future updates.

Below are the names of a few Genshin 4.5 artifacts and strongboxes that were disclosed in the leaks:

  • Deepwood Memories
  • Gilded Dream
  • Desert Pavilion
  • Flower of Lost Paradise
  • Vourukasha's Glow

Genshin Impact 5.0 New Characters: Pyro Archon and Xbalanque

Though we don't know much about the characters, leaks have hinted at the arrival of Natlan's Pyro Archon, who is expected to be larger in stature than Furina, and Xbalanque, featuring various design elements like tanned skin with red or white hair.

Genshin Pyro Archon

Details regarding Natlan's Pyro Archon remain scarce, with leaks indicating that the character may tower over Furina by approximately the size of Klee's hat. This hints that the Pyro Archon will potentially be using the Tall Female model, although HoYoverse may opt for a different approach given past controversies.

Genshin Xbalanque

Coming to Xbalanque, leaks hint that this possible new character might use a teenage boy model in-game. Design elements such as tanned skin paired with red or white hair variations have been mentioned by the leakers, indicating that there is uncertainty about the character's appearance. Similar to how Sethos's design underwent significant alteration following the reveal, HoYoverse might take an entirely new course.

Genshin Impact 5.0 Buff and Improvements:

Buff to Cryo and Hydro Characters

According to fresh information regarding Natlan, combat dynamics of the area will improve Cryo and Hydro teams. This probably affects older characters with Cryo and Hydro visions that scale with ATK instead of HP, such as Ayaka, Mona, Eula, Ayato, and Shenhe, aligning with a new Artifact Set centered around the revised combat mechanic, as Hydro characters in Genshin Impact don't necessarily need a buff in a post-Fontaine period.

Character Level Changes

Foul leaks suggest that Genshin Impact will raise its character level cap to 100 in Version 5.0, a significant increase from the current cap of 90. This adjustment raises questions about game difficulty and resin management, prompting speculation about potential enemy level increases and resin cap adjustments to accommodate the expanded character progression system.

Enemies may be pushed to level 110 or higher to counterbalance characters being pushed to level 100. Furthermore, Resin has 160 points, so, HoYoverse will need to raise the Reisin cap too.
