Mihoyo also gave a brief glimpse of the look next major zone in Inazuma. This map addition will be added in a later update but no date has been given. It may be worth following their YouTube channel for further developments.
If you’re unsure what Genshin Impact is about then it’s best described as an action RPG set in an open world environment. It is described as having an “action-based battle system using elemental magic and character-switching,”. There is no single-player element as it is online-based featuring up to 4 player co-op. It may be worth your while checking the official website as well.
