Genshin Impact’s world is expanding very soon. Ahead of Update 3.0, HoYoverse has teased what players can expect with Sumeru and how its Dendro element works in combat. Though some details are scarce, players have found leaked information from beta tests that point towards some interesting new additions. 

The acclaimed Android RPG has received plenty of support since its launch nearly two years ago, and this just marks another milestone for the free-to-play title.

Sumeru is the fourth explorable region in Genshin Impact, joining Mondstadt, Liyue, and Inazuma. Its citizens worship the Flower Archon, also known as the God of Wisdom, Lesser Lord Kusanali. Much of its landscape is comprised of two distinct locations, a large tropical rainforest and a desert. Its primary city appears to be built on a giant tree.
