Being one of the most popular action game titles at the moment, Genshin Impact continues to captivate players with its upcoming version 4.0, which will introduce a new area and additional content, generating even more excitement among fans.

Recently, it unveiled some exciting information about the upcoming region called Fontaine, also known as The Nation of Justice, during the version 3.8 live stream and on Twitter.

Based on the information and providing that the Genshin Impact 3.8 was released on July 5 and each patch lasts for 42 days, it is reasonable to anticipate that the Genshin Impact Fontaine release date would be around August 16. Similarly, it is highly probable that the live stream for version 4.0 will take place in the second week of August, approximately one week before the release.

Genshin Impact Fontaine Characters

One of the most anticipated aspects of new versions for players is the introduction of new characters associated with the upcoming region. Though several Genshin Impact Fontaine characters have been leaked, many will be released gradually as the Fontaine story unfolds. Not only that, a group of characters is expected to be unveiled in subsequent updates like 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2.

In accordance with recent disclosures, it appears that Lyney and Lynette, the two characters showcased in the Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview video, will be among the initial batch of Genshin Impact Fontaine characters to be introduced in the 4.0 update.

Lyney has the potential to excel as a Pyro Bow user, earning a 5-star rating, while Lynette features the skills of a 4-star Anemo sword user. Moreover, there are several other characters, both 5-star and 4-star, that may make their debut in version 4.2. Nonetheless, it is uncertain whether Hoyoverse, the developer of the game, will alter the release dates and designs of these characters due to the extensive leakage of information surrounding them.

The leaks also suggest that the Hydro Archon, also known as Focalors or Furine, will be a sword user and fulfill a support/buff role in the upcoming 4.2 update. However, it's important to note that these leaks surfaced approximately four months prior to the expected Genshin Impact Fontaine release date. Considering the substantial amount of time available for Hoyoverse to make changes to character releases, it's advisable to approach this information with some skepticism.

Besides Genshin Impact Fontaine characters, we can expect to see characters hailing from Sumeru, Inazuma, Liuye, and Mondstadt in future updates. Among them, Arlecchino, one of the 11 Harbingers of the Fatui, is rumored to make her first appearance in the Fontaine update. This follows the pattern set by Wanderer (Scaramouche), who made his debut in the Sumeru update.

It’s said that Arlecchino is speculated to be a 5-star character that wields a sword and possesses the Pyro delusion. Yet, it's important to note that there isn't sufficient evidence to confirm her status as a playable character at this time. Based on Hoyoverse's past patterns, there is a possibility that she could become playable in the 4.6 or 4.7 updates.

Recent rumors have shed light on Arlecchino and the future of the Fatui Harbingers, providing insights into their lore and potential playability. Additionally, some theory crafters predict a change in the release schedule of the Northern region of Mondstadt, originally slated for Genshin Impact 4.3. Particularly, the Northern region may be delayed and instead replaced by Port Baydha in Sumeru, leading players to the Fontaine region.

Over than that, Genshin Impact Fontaine characters will have a separate blue-colored stamina bar for underwater activities. It is unclear if this bar will be fixed or dependent on the level of Fontaine's statues.

Genshin Impact Fontaine Bosses

Based on the leaks for Genshin Impact 4.0, two bosses have been disclosed, and their icons have been shared on Reddit. The first boss bears similarities to Azdaha, while the second boss is a dual boss similar to the Bathysmal Vishap Herd encounter.

According to the source of information, the dual boss is referred to as "Icewind Suites," while the orange boss is known as the "Emperor of Fire and Iron." Though the exact purpose of the materials obtained from the first boss is still unknown, it has been revealed that the second boss will drop ascension materials specifically for Lyney.

Genshin Impact Fontaine Weapons

Apart from new characters, Genshin Impact is set to introduce a new lineup of battle pass weapons, similar to the existing ones, all of which have crit percentage scaling. The leaked names of these weapons are Wolf-Fang (Sword), Scion of the Blazing Sun (Bow), Ballad of the Fjords (Polearm), and Talking Stick (Claymore).

Furthermore, the leak provides a list of the weapons and information about their stats, ascension materials, and other details. It seems that Hoyoverse struggles to keep secrets, as even the signature weapon designs for the characters leak and unexpectedly make their appearance. The leaked Genshin Impact Fontaine weapon designs, albeit slightly outdated, suggest the ongoing development of Fontaine's signature weapons.

While there isn't much information available regarding the stats and signature characters of these weapons, it can be assumed that the blue sword might be Focalor's signature weapon. As more details emerge before the Genshin Impact Fontaine release date, which is still one month away, additional information will be added to the article.

Genshin Impact Fontaine Map

The complete and impressive underground map of Fontaine has recently been revealed on Reddit, as anticipated. It is of considerable size, and additional information has emerged online regarding swimming mechanics, which we will explore further. Still, before delving into that, here is the comprehensive underground map of Genshin Impact 4.0 for your viewing pleasure.

Upon initial observation, the Genshin Impact Fontaine map appears to be of significant size. Remarkably, there is an underground pathway that leads towards the Sumeru desert, along with various locations resembling islands.

Many leaks pointed out that it was originally planned for Fontaine to be released after the northern Mondstadt region. However, due to the delay in the release of Mondstadt, players will now have to journey to the upcoming location in Sumeru called Port Baydha. From there, they can set sail and reach the city of Fontaine.

The Nation of Justice is located in the north of the desert, leaving ample space between Sumeru and Fontaine. It is likely that upcoming areas on the map will fill this void, adding more content for players to explore.

Considering the information available, Fontaine seems to be comparatively smaller or potentially similar in size to Sumeru's rainforests. It has been strongly indicated that the entry point to Fontaine will be through a canal, which will serve as a route leading to the main city of Fontaine.

Hoyoverse has released a new trailer that provides us with the first glimpse of the architectural design inside the court of the Nation of Wisdom. In addition, the trailer features the official debut of several characters, including Focalors, the Hydro Archon, Wriothesley, a police officer, Neuvilette, the president of the Supreme Court, Charolette, Waghild, a nurse, and Navia, affiliated with the navy. Furthermore, there is a brief preview of Arlecchino, one of the upcoming playable harbingers.

We can confirm that Fontaine's exploration will encompass both land and underwater environments. The teaser also validates the presence of an underwater region. Furthermore, a recently leaked map on Reddit also corroborates this information. According to the official video and the various non-playable characters encountered during events and quests, Fontaine will be portrayed as a highly advanced nation. Even so, it will be intriguing to witness how the integration of underwater and terrestrial exploration will enhance the overall experience, and we are certainly enthusiastic about it.

Regarding the primary land region, it is noticeable that there are several tall buildings and other structures that the inhabitants of Fontaine consider as technological advancements. Given that Fontaine draws heavy inspiration from France and Paris, it is expected that the objects and architecture in the region will exhibit a similar design language. The teaser begins with a substantial ship, which likely serves as our mode of entry into Fontaine, and subsequently transitions to showcasing underwater exploration.

Genshin Impact Fontaine Events

Additional information regarding the happenings in version 4.0 has emerged on the internet, indicating that players will receive a complimentary Bennette during the main event. This is likely due to Bennette's ability to enhance characters, making him a suitable companion for Lyney, who is anticipated to serve as a Pyro DPS. The leaked images also provide glimpses of potential upcoming events in the game, suggesting that version 4.0 will feature many events and offer players more primogems.

Genshin Impact Fontaine Exploration Mechanics

In the teaser, we witness the Traveler utilizing their Hydro abilities, which they are likely to acquire by interacting with one of the statues of the Seven within the nation of Fontaine. The teaser's focus on the Traveler exploring underwater realms led many to speculate that only the Traveler would have access to such exploration. However, a reputable Genshin leaker named StepLeaks has revealed that this is not the case.

According to StepLeaks, it seems that other characters will also be able to explore underwater, contrary to initial assumptions. The teaser depicts the Traveler releasing slashes to unlock chests underwater, which appears to be accomplished not through their unique ability but rather a gadget or a universal exploration mechanic that activates whenever a character submerges.

As the Genshin Impact Fontaine release date is still a month away, limited information is available regarding the exploration mechanics in Fontaine. However, as the release date approaches, more leaks are expected to surface, and we will continue to update the article to ensure you are kept informed about any Fontaine-related leaks.

Genshin Impact 4.0: New Features and Upgrades

Here are the changes coming later in Genshin Impact 4.0, according to the leaks.

Increased Inventory Storage Limit

In Genshin Impact 4.0, the Artifact storage limit will be increased from 1500 to 1800, providing more space to farm for the upcoming Fontaine artifacts revealed in a recent leak.

New Artifact Strongboxes

Exciting new information from a leak indicates the possibility of introducing new artifact strongboxes in Genshin Impact. These strongboxes include Tenacity of the Millelith, Shimenawa's Reminiscence, Pale Flame, Husk of Opulent Dreams, Vermillion Hereafter, Echoes of an Offering, Ocean-Hued Calm, and Emblem of Severed Fate. This addition will make it easier for players to farm for the specific artifacts they need by allowing them to exchange unwanted ones. It's definitely a convenient feature to look forward to!

New Party Animations

Leaked information hints that Genshin Impact's party UI will be revamped in version 4.0, with improvements to the "Edit party" interface and new character animations. Moreover, players could potentially have the opportunity to personalize the party UI background. Nonetheless, it is crucial to handle these leaked details with care and verify their authenticity.
