Genshin Impact has just revealed some details about the upcoming 1.4 update, as 1.3 begins to end here after Hu Tao’s release. For starters, we have three new gift codes that you can redeem for 300 total primogems, plus 50,000 Blackberry and 5 Heroes XP books and 10 Mystic Ore.

Beyond that though, we learned more about the upcoming banners, and the game has taken the unusual step of debuting new 5 stars at 1.4. At least not with the two banners shown.
The first banner will mark the return of Venti, which we already knew.
The second banner will mark the return of Childe (Tartaglia), and will also feature 4 new star Rosaria, the cryogenic polearm wearer from Albedo’s quest line.
Since we have received a three banner update, there is a chance that yes, we may see a new 5 star on the third banner, just like we saw Hu Tao with this one.
Genshin Impact also showed some upcoming visual novel type stories that will become a permanent part of the game, with older characters like Barbara, Noelle, Bennet and Chongyun, it is unclear how exactly they will work and what the rewards will be for them, but it seems to be. a style departure from the character missions we’ve had so far. Maybe less work to animate, if they are in the style of visual novels.
Some other minor additions revealed in the 1.4 stream:
- You can lower your world level once a day if you want.
- You can toggle automatic cooking.
- You can display your business cards, not just one.
- A new boss will be added.
- A new area (not huge) will be added.
- There will be a new event with three types of mini-games, and you will get a new bow for a limited time, similar to the Dragonspine sword.
It’s a lot, and we still have more details on all of this to come. Update 1.4 will be here in just under two weeks I think, and there will be more previews before then. Until then, let’s start saving for the return of two of Genshin’s greatest heroes.
