Genshin Impact 1.2, what does this new version offer?.
Genshin Impact has become in its barely three months of existence one of the most popular games of the year. On December 23, it updated its new version for all devices, both game consoles and PCs, as well as for mobile devices with iOS and Android operating systems.
miHoYo launched the game at the end of September and since then it has only attracted the interest of thousands of gamers who have been fascinated by the game modes. The Chinese company has been regularly updating the game with new patches to meet user demand, and the latest is version 1.2, which continues with some of the best characters in the game: Mona, Klee or Qiqi among them.
These three, like many others, are already for many fans of manga, video games and Japanese animation, assimilable to some historical anime female characters such as Bulma from Dragon Ball, Misa Amane from Death Note or Hinata Hyuga from Naruto.
What are the most outstanding news in Genshin Impact?
Dragonspine, that’s the name chosen by the developers for the new area available in version 1.2 of the game. Also, this is the first expansion for the map since the game launched on September 28.
From miHoYo they explain that this new area is a very cold, icy mountain range located to the south of Mondstadt, where unique creatures inhabit and that it is full of mystery, since a lost civilization is also located. It is a space that offers the player many opportunities to further progress in the game, as its many resources, explosive devices and four-star weapon blueprints give rise to it.
Another outstanding aspect of Dragonspine is its visual power, since it is always covered in snow and gives rise to very bucolic landscapes, but also dangerous, since low temperatures are always a challenge.
This version 1.2, available for all mobile and gaming devices, including the PS5, offers a bar of extreme cold accumulation that measures that indicator in the characters, so players should keep an eye on this parameter in their adventures.
The Prince of Chalk and the Dragon
Dragonspine plays a leading role in this new version, and not only because of the area itself, but also because of The Prince of Limestone and the Dragon, the new Season event. Albedo, captain of the research team of the Knights of Favonius and chief alchemist, will also be very important in this scenario as this character will be of great help to get Poisonous Wish, the powerful sword shrouded in mystery to which other rewards are added such as the crown of wisdom
Albedo is one of the new five-star playable characters, as is Ganyu. The alchemist has Geo as his element while Ganyu is a female character, a half-Adeptus half-human Cryo archer who works as the secretary of the Seven Stars of Liyue.
Genshin Impact, how to play version 1.2?
The game proposes fantasy adventures based on traditional Chinese culture and stands out for its extensive free content, although it is true that it is possible to complete the missions with in-app purchases.
When starting the adventure in Genshin Impact we can choose between female or male characters. In principle, gender does not influence the development of the game but it is associated with some affinities.
The idea is to go completing missions in the main story to accumulate rewards, but alternate this with secondary missions, especially the exploration ones, which are the ones that give the passport to the upgrade materials.
With the exploration we access rewards that help to have better weapons, raise the level of the characters and the locations. An important key is the choice of characters, which are more than 24 of different levels: S, A, B and C, ordered by power.
Qiqi or Mona are two of those S-level female characters. In the formation of the teams, characters of various levels must be included, and even those of C-level, which are generally weak, can be very useful in simple missions or at the beginning. of the game.
