The victory lap to Fontaine

With the final Sumeru update on the verge, players are eager to see what’s next for us in Fontaine, especially after that last gorgeous trailer. But there’s still a long road before exploring the depths of the sea, but we’ll have a huge patch to entertain ourselves while we wait. The 3.8 version update is almost here, and there’s much to find in these patch notes.

With things like a huge new time-limited area, a banner with a character who’s been away for over a year and a half and new skins to get (with one of them being completely free), you’ll not be as bored as you think while waiting for the new region to drop. Here are the Genshin Impact 3.8 patch notes listed below.

Genshin Impact 3.8 Full Patch Notes

In the usual final patch fashion, the biggest feature is the new temporary area, the Veluriyam Mirage. Part of the Secret Summer Paradise event, the area will last throughout the whole patch, offering a new exploration area for players to enjoy and tons of minigames, all featuring Primogems as rewards.

For Banners, we have Eula and Klee right off the bat making their comebacks with their signature weapons on their adjacent banner. As for the second phase, we have Sangonomiya Kokomi and the Wanderer closing the curtains on the Sumeru era.

It’s also about time for a new skin, and the winners this time were Klee and Kaeya donning their new looks for the summer. Klee’s outfit is paid as usual, while Kaeya’s completely free as long as you play the event. The Cavalry Captain is also getting a full Hangout event this time around, so we can learn a bit more about him.
