Genshin Impact 4.0 update Developers Discussion talks about better Artifact management, new weapons and more

A number of highly requested features are now available!

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play RPG that has been created by HoYoverse. Genshin Impact has recently released a new Developers Discussions for Version 4.0 which are all about answering community problems and sharing ideas between the players and developers for the betterment of the game. With a brand new Chapter and Region on the horizon, let’s take a look at all the questions answered in the Developers’ Discussion of the upcoming Genshin Impact Version 4.0 update.

Genshin Impact Version 4.0 update: Developers Discussion Highlights

Here are the answers to some of the questions by the developers at HoYoverse. 

Increased Artifact Inventory Limit and added Artifact Sets

The Developers have seen our struggles when it comes to absurd Artifact farming and anything related to that. As such, it is mentioned in the Developers Discussion that starting from Version 4.0, Genshin Impact will increase the limit for the number of artifacts a player can hold in their Inventory will be raised from 1,500 to 1,800. This means that players can now collect and store more artifacts without having to worry about running out of space. Having more storage space allows players to collect more variety of artifacts to either use as fodder for other artifacts or just roll for good sub-stats.

Additionally, the “Mystic Offering” feature, which is accessible through the Crafting Bench in-game, will be expanded to include 8 new Artifact Sets that players can exchange. The “Mystic Offering” is a system that allows players to exchange unwanted or duplicate artifacts for other valuable items or sets. With the addition of these 8 new Artifact Sets, players have more options to choose from when exchanging their artifacts, increasing the chances of obtaining the specific sets they desire for their characters.

Here are the 8 Artifact Sets that will be made available, as soon as Version 4.0 launches. 

  • Tenacity of the Millelith
  • Pale Flame
  • Shimenawa’s Reminiscence
  • Emblem of Severed Fate
  • Husk of Opulent Dreams
  • Ocean-Hued Clam
  • Vermillion Hereafter
  • Echoes of an Offering

Discussion on other QOL Improvements for Artifacts

The destruction function of Artifacts in your Inventory will also be optimized, where players can add 4-Star Artifacts at once. The game’s development team has also recognized the need for further optimizations related to managing artifacts, and they have some plans in the works to address these concerns. Here are the details of the proposed optimizations:

  • Locking of Artifacts: Currently, managing artifacts can be costly and time-consuming, especially when trying to keep track of valuable or essential artifacts. To improve the player experience, the Devs are planning to optimize the locking function. This means that Travelers will be able to “lock” specific artifacts more easily, which prevents accidental dismantling, selling, or other unwanted actions.
  • Equipping of Artifacts: The process of equipping artifacts to characters may be cumbersome or slow in the current game version especially since many end-game players have more or less obtained a huge assortment of playable characters in their roster but only a selected few Artifact Sets to equip onto them. To address this, the development team is discussing a new plan that will help Travelers quickly and efficiently select and equip artifacts for the characters.

New Set of Battle Pass Weapons

In Version 4.0 of the game, the developers are finally introducing a brand new set of Battle Pass Weapons. Starting from Version 4.0, there will be a total of 10 types of weapons available in the Battle Pass Bounty. When players unlock the Gnostic Hymn and reach Level 30 within the Pass, they will have the opportunity to choose one of these new weapons as a reward. The specific details and characteristics of these new 5 weapons are yet to be revealed by the Devs. They will likely share this information through official announcements so stay tuned for details.

Unlock the region of Fontaine and its Archon Quests

After updating to Version 4.0, players who have already completed the Prologue Archon Quest in Mondstadt will automatically unlock a Teleport Waypoint in Sumeru’s Realm of Farakhkert. This newly unlocked waypoint will enable players to quickly teleport to a location near Fontaine. Having this waypoint available makes it convenient for players to access Fontaine and begin their exploration of the new region without having to undertake a lengthy journey from the previous regions. To fully immerse in Fontaine’s storyline and get the most out of the new region, the developers recommend that players complete the Archon Quest Chapter III: Act VI, “Caribert.”

New Underwater Exploration in Fontaine

In the upcoming Version 4.0 of the game, players will venture into Fontaine, the Nation of Justice. Fontaine is characterized by vast expanses of open water, and players will have the unique ability to freely explore the depths of these waters thanks to the blessing of the Transoceanic Sourcewater. This feature allows players to experience the distinct and captivating scenery that Fontaine has to offer.

Multi-Layered Map

Since the release of the Sumeru region in Version 3.0, players have been requesting a feature to view the various underground areas added to the game map. This was because it was difficult to identify the existence of these underground areas just by looking at the main overworld map. Additionally, once players entered an underground area, they had no way of knowing its layout, leading to confusion and reliance on memory. Now with Fontaine on the way, it seems as though the developers have answered our problems.

Starting from Version 4.0, players will now have access to a multi-layered map that displays the layout of the underground areas of Fontaine as well as some of the existing regions of Sumeru. This map provides a topographical view of any underground land which will be displayed on the Teyvat Overworld map in-game, allowing players to better understand the terrain of the area they’re in and explore with ease. This improvement greatly enhances the gaming experience by making underground exploration less confusing and more convenient.

New Genius Invokation TCG Function: Observe Duel

Players can now view ongoing Genius Invokation TCG matches on the Friends or Co-Op Team screen. This feature allows Travelers to spectate matches between other players in real time, even if they are not directly participating in the duel. The game provides an option for players to control their privacy settings, enabling them to decide whether they want to allow others (such as friends and Co-Op teammates) to view their duels or not.

Gyroscope Controller Support Added

In the Developers Discussion, it is mentioned that Genshin Impact will support gyroscope controller input on specific platforms, namely PC, PS4™, and PS5™ in Version 4.0. Gyroscope controllers use motion sensors to detect movements and provide an alternative method of controlling the game. Players can adjust the sensitivity and other related settings for the gyroscope controller according to their preferences. Detailed rules and instructions on how to use the gyroscope controller support will be provided later.

Final Thoughts

The development team is actively working on the specific details for these optimizations, and once they are finalized, they will share the information in detail through the Developer Discussions news. This level of transparency ensures that players are informed about upcoming improvements and provides insight into the team’s efforts to enhance the overall gameplay experience. By addressing these concerns, players can expect a smoother and more enjoyable experience while playing Genshin Impact.
