The global interactive entertainment brand HoYoverse confirmed that the Version 3.0 update for its open-world adventure RPG Genshin Impact will launch on August 24. Titled as Version 3.0 “The Morn a Thousand Roses Brings,” the upcoming expansion not only includes Sumeru, the fourth of the game’s seven major but a new element as well.
The Dendro element is the last element to be released in the game and even though enemies of this vision existed in the game, players will get the playable Dendro characters for the first time.
Genshin Impact 3.0 will bring a massive map expansion
Located west of Liyue, the massive region of Sumeru is divided into two main parts: rainforest and desert. Upon its release, players will be able to explore the dense rainforest and multiple settlements nestled within it, including Sumeru City and Port Ormos. Known as the Nation of Wisdom, Sumeru has the most prestigious historical institution called the Akademiya.
Along with a brand-new series of elemental chain reactions the Dendro element will become playable for the first time. The Dendro element can trigger three different basic reactions: Burning, Bloom, and Catalyze, if used with the Pyro, Hydro, and Electro element respectively. In combat, Bloom and Catalyze can evolve into further reaction dealing more damage.
Dendro characters in Genshin Impact will also be added to the roster of playable ones. As the Traveler, players can unlock the power of Dendro at the Statue of The Seven in Sumeru, and have a chance to recruit two Dendro archers- the forest watcher Tighnari and Amber’s friend Collei. In addition to Dendro characters, the four-star Electro support character Dori will also join the game. Dori is an elusive merchant in Sumeru and wields a claymore.

Three new tools, the Boon of the Elder Tree, Ultra-Hot Burner Lamp Test Model, and Fishing Line Stabilizer can be acquired to make the wood farming, cooking, and fishing process easier. Colored shadows are also applied to make Teyvat in Genshin Impact a more vivid world.
Along with its massive expansion, Genshin Impact‘s Version 3.0 will be arriving on August 24. With the cross-save and cross-play functions, players can enjoy their adventure across PlayStation®, PC, Android, and iOS.
