Thanks to the recent livestream, fans now have an abundance of information about the upcoming Genshin Impact Version 2.5. The update will introduce new playable character Yae Miko, an Electro user who wields Catalysts in combat and also serves as the head maiden of the Grand Narukami Shrine.

As detailed in the GenshinImpactOfficial Version 2.5 Twitch stream, later posted to YouTube by Genshin Impact, the upcoming update will let players design their very own Domain. Domains are large interior levels that serve as Genshin Impact\’s dungeons, and they typically have a pre-set layout for players to explore. However, Version 2.5\’s new \”Divine Ingenuity\” event will let players create their own Domain and share it with others, creating an opportunity for great creativity and fun.

Rumors often surround the title\’s future content, with one recent leak detailing a Genshin Impact Sumeru region summer update. The game\’s fantasy world of Teyvat is broken up into seven different nations, with Sumeru considered the mostly likely to be explore next. This potential expansion, said to release over summer 2022 as either Version 2.9 or 3.0, would also introduce the natural Dendro element for certain characters to utilize in combat.
The Genshin Impact 2.5 livestream revealed many upcoming additions to the action role-playing game, but the \”Divine Ingenuity\” event may be the most unique piece of new content. Allowing players to design their own Domain will allow for great creativity, and playing through another gamer\’s Domain could strengthen the game\’s growing community. While it may not remain a permanent feature, \”Divine Ingenuity\” will gave gamers a taste of professional dungeon design.
