#1. A New Nation

#2. New Vehicle

In the next update of Genshin Impact, players can sail the boat to cross the river and sea. You have seen a lot of boats and sailboats at Liyue port. However, these boats don't move currently. But in update 1.6, players can use these boats to cross the sea to travel to Inazuma on the other side of the sea. Boat travel is one of the most anticipated features of this new update.

If Mondstadt is inspired by Western cities and Liyue is inspired by the ancient Chinese cities, Inazuma is inspired by the nation of sunrise - Japan. It's also the homeland of many characters in this game. Therefore, many new playable characters will arrive in Genshin Impact 1.6.

The upcoming update also introduces many new characters. The first character to appear in this upcoming update is Kazuha. The 5-star character Kazuha is an Anemo swordmaster. Kazuha is a Samurai with mind-blowing power. Besides, Klee will also come back to Klee Wish Banner on June 9th. It's a good chance to obtain this powerful character that you shouldn't miss.
