A new leak of Genshin Impact, represented by a convincing insider BLANK, announced on Twitter that the Genshin Impact 3.8 region will be called “Penumbra” (Penumbra or Penumbra in translation, there is no exact translation and localization). The Sumeru expansion was previously supposed to be a region in the 3.8 update, but now it doesn’t seem to be the case.
Penumbra is a new region revealed in Genshin Impact 3.8
A region reminiscent of earlier regional additions to Genshin Impact, such as Encanomia and the Rift, turns out to be a sub-region of another. Penumbra is rumored to be related to Water Mirages/Illusions, possibly an Oceanid boss that Li Yue players can fight.
However, unlike past expansions such as the Golden Apple Archipelago, the insider was unable to determine if the area would be associated with a specific event.
If the source of the leak is correct, then Genshin 3.8 will show a region called Penumbra, and although this is surprising, it bodes well, as the new region was supposed to appear along with the new Fontaine characters.
Genshin Impact 3.8 event and characters
Region aside, BLANK also revealed that the Genshin Impact 3.8 update will likely bring a new event with some rollercoaster mechanics.
Sliver stated, “There seems to be some kind of rollercoaster event in 3.8 where you can attack opponents from both the left and right sides.”
As for the Genshin 3.8 characters, a server side 4.0 leak revealed that a new character, codenamed “Soutine”, will possibly be released in the Genshin Impact 3.8 update. This character was also supposed to be a two-handed Hydro and hailing from the Fontaine region.
Moreover, new in-game files were recently discovered on test servers in China, which became quite popular shortly after being published on the network. The leaked file showed that version 3.8 will be the last patch before the Genshin 4.0 update.
And while the leak doesn’t say anything about the upcoming region, various fans have linked this new 3.8 leak to the release of the upcoming region.
There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the characters of Genshin 3.8, and while Fontaine’s new character has been confirmed by various sources, there has been a lot of uncertainty surrounding the release patch. However, it now seems that this new character will appear in the 3.8 update.
Well, like all leaks, this new Genshin 3.8 leak is subject to change as it’s too early to get any information about the Genshin Impact 3.x update so players should wait for official confirmation from miHoYo as they can decide at any time make changes to the main game.
These were the full details on the upcoming Genshin Impact 3.8 region, event, and characters that have been revealed so far.
