Genshin Impact 3.1 trailer reveals Candace and Cyno, teases the death of a fan-favorite character – Effinate Games

Genshin Impact 3.1 is the first update following the launch of the massive version 3.0 expansion at the end of August. Version 3.0 added a new region named Sumeru and several new banner characters for players to track. Dendro was the new element and Archon Quest took players deep into the forests on new adventures. The 3.1 update trailer includes new reveals, a shocking teaser, and limited-time events.

In the update 3.1 trailer, we have our first look at the desert region that Sumeru contains. The first release took place primarily in the forests bordering Liyue and Sumeru, while 3.1 takes us firmly into the vast desert beyond the edge of the forest.

Update 3.1 is called “King Deshret and the Three Magi.” Several Sumeru banner characters were revealed with looks at their combat and play styles. Candace was shown with a spear and shield, capable of simultaneously attacking and supporting her allies. She is a Hydro character and a true descendant of King Deshret.

Cyno was also revealed and is shown giving the Traveler a firm warning to protect his temple and village. He is an Electro polearm user and sports Egyptian inspired clothing and ceremonial masks during battle. Last but not least, Nilou was revealed, dancing gracefully as she weaved in and out of her attacks with grace. She is a Hydro sword user and should work fine with a Dendro elemental character.

New events are also coming to update 3.1; Of Ballads and Brews, Hyakunin Ikki, Wind Chaser and Star-Seekers Sojourn will take place across Sumeru. Two new five-star weapons are coming as banner weapons for a limited event – the Polearm Staff of Scarlet Sands and the two-handed sword Key of Khaj Nisut.

Update 3.1 is slated to be released on September 28, and dates for subsequent updates have also been revealed. The ending of this trailer teased the apparent death of everyone’s fan favorite Adventurer’s Guild representative Katheryne. It might be bait, but it’s the most shocking story moment in Genshin Impact if it holds up in the next Archon quest.
