A new trailer for Genshin Impact Version 3.0 reveals several new characters awaiting players in the region of Sumeru. The long-awaited update will add an entirely new region to the world of Teyvat alongside a cast of new characters and the new Dendro element. Developer Hoyoverse has already confirmed Genshin Impact 3.0 playable characters Collei, Dori and Tighnari, but an even larger cast of Sumeru residents await players in the future.
While Genshin Impact regularly receives updates containing new characters and quests, Version 3.0 is expected to be a particularly substantial piece of new content. The update will bring players to Sumeru, a previously unseen region of Teyvat associated with the Dendro element and the deity Kusanali. Upon traveling to Sumeru players will also be able to acquire three new characters, two of which actually wield Dendro as their chosen element. The forest ranger trainee Collei and the forest watcher Tighnari will both use Dendro, while the Sumeru merchant Dori will use Electro in combat. Genshin Impact 3.0 beta leaks have shed some light on the upcoming update, and now Hoyoverse has officially revealed Sumeru and more of its inhabitants.

A Genshin Impact 3.0 preview video, posted to YouTube, gives a closer look at Sumeru characters other than Collei, Dori and Tighnari. The video, titled Prelude to Wisdom, explores the natural wonders and technological innovations that players will encounter in Sumeru. Hoyoverse also introduces several new Sumeru companions that players will encounter down the line. The Haravatat hunk Alhaitham, the cat-eared Desertfolk Dehya, the horned dancer Nilou, Cyno the General Mahamatra and a mysterious girl named Nahida have all been teased by Hoyoverse as future characters coming to Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact 3.0 Will Introduce A Massive Sumeru Cast
While many of the Sumeru characters revealed by Hoyoverse are new, Genshin Impact 3.0 leaks about Nilou actually appeared online last month. The leak describes Nilou as a Hydro user with red hair and horns, with the physical description lining up perfectly with the recent Sumeru preview video. These leaks also suggest that Nilou will be a powerful 5-star fighter, and that she will be released in a future patch alongside Cyno the General Mahamatra. While these leaks appear to be legitimate, they fail to mention the other new characters Alhaitham, Dehya and Nahida.
Genshin Impact is constantly being expanded with new quests and characters, and Version 3.0 looks to be a truly massive addition to the world of Teyvat. Sumeru will introduce many new questlines and characters, and Hoyoverse has several more characters already planned for subsequent updates. Collei, Dori and Tighnari will arrive with Version 3.0, but Genshin Impact also looks poised to add Nilou, Cyno, Alhaitham, Dehya and Nahida in the near future.
