The much-awaited Chasm map for Genshin Impact has been revealed in a new 2.6 update beta leak. Genshin Impact publisher and developer HoYoverse, which recently announced its rebrand from miHoYo, finally confirmed that the Chasm would arrive in Genshin Impact’s 2.6 update earlier this month. The company then released concept art for the new region, which gave players a glimpse of what the Chasm will look like. The art also revealed two of the area’s elements, a special location called The Surface as well as a new Geo construct dubbed the Ruin Serpent.

While there’s still a few weeks before Genshin Impact players can finally visit The Chasm when the 2.6 update launches in March, the ongoing 2.5 update still has quite a lot of content for players to experience. These include the arrival of the much-awaited Yae Miko as a playable character, the rerun banners of Raiden Shogun and Sangonomiya Kokomi, as well as several events that players can participate in. The most interesting of these events is arguably the new Genshin Impact Divine Ingenuity event, which lets players create their own domains. Players will then be able to share their custom domains to challenge their friends.
Reddit user ukrisreng (via Game Rant) shared the map of the Chasm region on the Genshin Impact subreddit. Looking at the leaked image, the Chasm looks pretty much as expected based on its moniker. The image also reveals that the new region will feature five teleport waypoints, one Statue of the Seven, and a single domain, among other things. It’s unclear whether there are other points of interest in the region that just aren’t seen in the leaked map. While the area seems relatively small, almost similar to the Dragonspine region in Mondstadt, which was recently featured again in Genshin Impact’s Shadows Amidst Snowstorms event, at least part of the explorable area of the Chasm can be assumed to be located underground, as its name suggests.
The map of The Chasm region isn’t the only element of the upcoming 2.6 update that has been leaked from the beta so far. Renders of both Kamisato Ayato, the brother of popular playable character Kamisato Ayaka, as well as Yelan have also previously been leaked. It’s unknown whether either or both characters will become playable in the 2.6 update but it is said that both are Hydro element characters and while Ayato is a sword user, Yelan wields a bow in combat.
As Genshin Impact’s 2.6 update draws closer, more information on the much-awaited Chasm region as well as other elements of the new patch are expected to be leaked. In spite of HoYoverse’s attempt to stifle them, leaks have helped Genshin Impact by getting its community excited for every new update.
