The December 7, 2022 release date for Genshin Impact Version 3.4, “The Exquisite Night Chimes” was announced by the international interactive entertainment company HoYoverse. Players will get the huge yearly Lantern Rite celebration, competitions in Inazuma, chic attire, and lavish rewards, including a no-cost Liyue character with a four-star rating and a total of 13 Intertwined Fates! Alhaitham and Yaoyao, two new characters, will be playable as strong friends, and in the far-off desert of Sumeru, a new region with long-lost ancient remains and mysteries finally emerges amid the sandstorms.
Enjoy the grand Teyvat New Year celebrations with the Version 3.4 update
As Teyvat’s new year draws near, Liyue once more radiates in all of its magnificence. This year’s celebrations feature a music festival with out-of-town visitors and a presentation of Paper Theater, a popular folk art piece put on by veteran local artisans with assistance from the Traveler. During Lantern Rite, a variety of mini-games are also accessible.
One such game is Radiant Sparks, a modern racing game that allows users to participate in a growing fireworks display. The events and tasks for this season can be completed to get rewards such as 10 + 3 Intertwined Fates, a four-star Liyue character, and Lisa’s new attire.

Many challengers have assembled in far-off Inazuma to participate in two special tournaments. Participants in the Yashiro Commission’s “Warrior’s Spirit” competition will duel with traditional Inazuman sword techniques and see an exhibition match between a special visitor and Kamisato Ayaka wearing her brand-new attire. Arataki Itto is setting up the “Beetle Brawl,” where contestants must combat with their Onikabuto, in the interim.
Genshin Impact brings new Dendro characters with Version 3.4
In the future version, there will be two additional new Dendro characters that can be played. After his amazing performance in Sumeru’s main plot, Alhaitham will now be playable as a 5-star swordsman. Players can learn more about what the logical and clever Scribe of the Akademiya experienced following the events of Sumeru’s main plot in his Story Quest “Vultur Volans Chapter.”
Alhaitham can launch coordinated strikes, boost the damage his elemental burst deals, create Chisel-Light Mirrors to turn his attacks into Dendro Damage, and do other things to make battle simpler.

Yaoyao, the second brand-new Dendro character, is a cute young boy from Liyue who can be hired as a four-star character. Yaoyao employs a polearm in combat and the Adeptus-made tool “Yuegui” to boost her team members’ health.
She won’t frighten surrounding creatures while she’s scouting them out. The first half of Version 3.4’s Event Wishes will feature Alhaitham, Yaoyao, and Xiao, and the second half will have Hu Tao and Yelan repeats.
Explore Sumeru’s new sandstorm-ravaged desert
The Desert of Hadramaveth, a brand-new location to the northwest of the Sumeru region, however, also conceals mysteries and perils. In the middle of the desert, a never-ending enormous tornado sits, bringing violent storms and long-buried secrets to the surface. After completing the World Quest Golden Slumber, players can continue their journey with Jeht from the Tanit Camps, encounter a mysterious Magic Bottle, and set out to find the fabled Orchard of Pairidaeza, where King Deshret is said to have frozen time in honor of the Goddess of Flowers. This location is now known by the desert residents as the Eternal Oasis.
