Genshin Impact 1.6 leaks: New looks at the Archipelago region, event mini-games and more

The new Archipelago region coming to Genshin Impact is a brand new setting for players to venture through. This area brings new bosses, challenges, and even forms of travel, like the Mystical Skiff. Players will be able to journey across these many islands as they deal with both enemies and the rising tides, and these islands will serve as the linking point between Liyue and Inazuma.

The islands are very large, and even have a separate loading screen, and players can get an idea of how large they are in this video that outlines the size of the region on the map. Players definitely have a huge new area to explore, and the Genshin Impact 1.6 leaks reveal plenty of first looks at this upcoming region.

Players will be tasked with facing a new challenge in the Genshin Impact 1.6 Archipelago region, one where they will have to put their skills to the test to deal with an endless battle.

This challenge will have three difficulty levels and seven stages, providing plenty of opportunity for players to test their ability in this new mini-game. Players can also definitely look forward to some Primogems from this mini-game, as most events pay out this precious resource.

Genshin Impact 1.6 leaks: Inazuma map tease

The new Genshin Impact 1.6 leak has provided a tiny sneak peek at the Inazuma map, showing off two skiff waypoints.

Players who need to get around quickly in the ocean will definitely have to use and maintain their Mystical Skiff, as it seems like it will be key in both the new Archipelago region, and perhaps even in the future of Inazuma.
