A Genshin Impact leaker shared a video featuring a mock-up of the new Sumeru region, which will appear around Genshin Impact Version 3.0.
Kodoani.com – World of Geshin Impact keep expanding with each new update. Developer Hoyoverse has officially added a brand new area called Chasm to the game in the current 2.6 update, and another that is set to thrive in the near future.
There have been a lot of rumors from Genshin Impact about the brand new nation called Sumeru that will appear in the next big update. An interesting leak has apparently revealed a mockup of a small portion of this new area, letting fans know what to expect.
Lumie, a trusted leaker of Genshin Impact, is the source of Genshin Impact’s original model information about Sumeru. This region has been rumored for months now, and based on leaks, it doesn’t look like it will disappoint once it’s released. The video shows Ganyu running around exploring a large tree that could be Sumeru’s main location. The fact that the model is placed next to the city of Mondstadt makes it much easier to estimate its size. The tree will likely have many teleport points and most likely the seven idols of the land of sumeru.
As mentioned before, Sumeru is expected to launch as part of the 3.0 update, according to the game’s update schedule, which will arrive around July this year. There are seven countries in Genshin Impact and each country in the game has its own element of representation. Monstadt, Liyue and Inazuma have wind, lava, and lightning as the main elements. Sumeru is rumored to be the representative of the herb element, which makes the area even more vibrant.
Of the seven elements Genshin Impact, is the only element not tied to any playable characters at this time. This new element will probably completely shake up the current meta as it will add a lot of new elemental reactions. There have been a few rumors about their identities. In addition to the herb god, the two characters most likely to come to this element are Baizhu and Yaoyao.
Baizhu has been a part of the game for a long time, and he has appeared in many Liyue quests. Yaoyao is the only original beta character that has yet to join the playable list. Sumeru’s Archon, also known as Kusanali God of Wisdom, will also come around the same time that Sumeru did. There have been many leaks about the appearance of the herb, but those should still be considered as references only.
Genshin Impact is currently available for PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile devices. The Switch version is in development with no confirmed release date.
