Fresh off announcing a release window for Zenless Zone Zero, miHoYo has confirmed that the next update for Genshin Impact will launch on December 20th. Version 4.3, “Roses and Muskets”, sees the celebration of the Fontinalia Festival. It also adds two new characters – 5-star Geo wielder Navia and 4-star Cryo user Chevreuse. Check out the first trailer below.
The Fontinalia Festival focuses on the characters making a short film with Furina as the director, Kamisato Ayaka and Ayato as actors, and the Travel coordinating. There are mini-games, including one focused on marksmanship, with players able to win Theater Tickets to exchange for rewards like “Ultimate Overlord’s Mega Magic Sword,” a four-star Claymore.
Fans can also expect an update to Genius Invokation TCG, with more cards, NPCs to battle and the limited-time mode Heated Battle. There will also be some optimizations for exploring Teyvat, with a “one-click function” to collect expedition rewards, ingredients and forged items. You’ll also be able to lock batches of Artifacts and set filters for which new or existing Artifacts to look.
If that wasn’t enough, there are also Artifact Set Recommendations. You can see how other players customize their characters with Artifact Sets, which should help when learning how to build them. Stay tuned for more details on Version 4.3 en route to release.
