If you were looking for a reason to return to Genshin Impact, then miHoYo studio decided to help in this matter. The developers have announced that the next major update 1.3 will be released on February 3rd. Then a new event will begin in the game – the Festival of Sea Lanterns.
During the event, players will be able to celebrate the New Year in Teiwata, with which the city hosts the Lantern Festival at Li Yue Harbor. There will be a variety of shops and merchants, as well as a new tower defense game called Mechanicus Theater. By winning at various difficulty levels, players will receive Talismans of Peace, which can be exchanged at the Night Market for the Crown of Insight and special named cards.
With the event, the game also introduces a new hero Xiao, an adept and the only remaining member of the Five Yakshas, as a 5-star playable character. He is armed with a spear and an ability that increases damage in exchange for health. During the festival, players can get a glimpse of a day in his life.
