Genshin Impact 1.6 leaks: Archipelago map and Mystical Skiff details

Genshin Impact players are getting their first look at the new 1.6 islands, courtesy of the same leaker who recently revealed the Maguu Kenki fight. The leak shows the new character Kazuha standing on these islands that seem to be covered in water as he approaches a Skiff Waypoint.

This entire area is very different from anything that players have come across so far in Genshin Impact, and so they will have to travel via different method. This method is the Mystical Skiff, a new mechanic being added in update 1.6.

Players can utilize this Skiff as a form of water transportation like a magical boat. This boat will be unique to each player, though it is unknown if customization will be available.

Players can use this boat to travel between Skiff waypoints, riding through the seas with ease. This allows for players to navigate the rising tides of the 1.6 islands and makes the new update quite interesting.

Genshin Impact 1.6 leaks: Size of the new Archipelago revealed

This video shows players just how large they can expect this new area to be by outlining it through the map. These islands seem to have a huge range, and if this is accurate, then players will have a lot to explore in the 1.6 update of Genshin Impact.

Players will have to deal with the rising and falling tides, which may make the area smaller or larger depending on the time. Players will also have to manage the durability of their Skiffs and other new mechanics, meaning that this update will bring all-new gameplay for players to experience.

Players can look forward to these updates once Genshin Impact 1.6 releases, but they might not be entirely accurate.

Genshin Impact 1.6 looks packed with new content, and fans of boat travel will definitely want to get on board for this update.
