HoYoverse finally detailed the major upcoming Genshin Impact (Free) 4.0 update titled “As Light Rain Falls Without Reason” in a livestream that just aired. Genshin Impact version 4.0 launches this month on iOS, Android, PS5, PS4, and PC platforms. This update focuses on Fontaine, the nation of justice to the game. It features underwater diving in parts, the main story continuing, three new playable characters (Lyney, Lynette and Freminet), and a lot more. Genshin Impact 4.0 launches on August 16th, and pre-installation for mobile and PC platforms will go live a few days prior as usual. The focus of this update is Fontaine which is the fifth major nation of Teyvat. As with most Genshin Impact trailers, today’s 4.0 one has sublime music. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the update has when it comes to music. Watch the Genshin Impact 4.0 update “As Light Rain Falls Without Reason” trailer below:
If you’ve not gotten it yet, you can download Genshin Impact for free on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here. The PC version is available on the official website here and the Epic Games Store. If you play on iOS, with iOS 14.5 or iPadOS 14.5 and later, you can use PS5 and Xbox Series X|S controllers to play Genshin Impact. We featured Genshin Impact as our Game of the Week when it released and awarded it our 2020 Game of the Year. I also featured it as one of the best iOS games to play with a controller.
