A new Genshin impact leak has reportedly unveiled a new region and a new gameplay feature that will accompany this new region. With future updates, Genshin Impact’s cards will continue to expand and we know this due to leaks. Over on Twitter, Genshin Report passes on a leak from Genshin Intel that allegedly shows Inazuma, a new area and part of the map that is said to be inspired by Japan.
We’ve been hearing about Inazuma via leaks for a while, but now we reportedly know what it’s actually going to look like on the map, and as you can see, there’s plenty of water, this is where a brand new gameplay mechanic apparently comes into play .
According to the same duo, players will travel between the various islands below with a new sailing mechanic. Unfortunately, it sounds like sailing is not strengthened with any kind of aquatic combat.
We travel the seas with our new skiff / sailing mechanic, who I do not think is planned for battle. # 神 神 #Genshin # 原 神 ア プ デ 情報 #GenshinImpact #Genshin_Impact #Inazuma https://t.co/H1raZLY7HV

So far, details of this new region and sailing are scarce and unofficial. The expectation is that all of this will go live at some point during 1.5 or 1.6, but like the content itself, it is still to be seen.
As always, take everything here with a grain of salt. Not only is everything here unofficial, but even if it is correct, it can also be changed.
At the time of release, developer miHoYo has not commented on this new leak, and we do not expect this to change as the developer does not comment on the contents of any leaks. In fact, it rarely even addresses leaks. That said, if it does, we will update the story accordingly.
Genshin impact is available for free via PC, PS4, PS5 and mobile devices. The free-to-play action RPG is currently under development for the Nintendo Switch, but right now there is no word on when this version will be released.
