Genshin Impact is an open-world action RPG that has captivated millions of players with its stunning graphics, engaging gameplay, and rich lore. In the game, players can explore seven different nations, each with its own culture, history, and elemental god. One of these nations is Fontaine, the aquatic realm that is expected to be the next major update for the game.
With only a few months left until Fontaine's release, fans have been eagerly waiting for any clues or hints about this mysterious region. Recently, a series of leaks have revealed some exciting details about Fontaine's characters, features, and story. The most prominent of these leaks is the official concept art of Focalors, the Hydro Archon and the supreme ruler of Fontaine.
Focalors' Concept Art
Focalors is one of the seven Archons, the powerful beings that control the elements and grant visions to worthy mortals. She is also known as the God of Justice and the Oceanid of Pure Water. She has been a subject of much speculation and anticipation among Genshin Impact fans, as she is expected to play a major role in the game's plot and lore.
A recent post on the Genshin Impact Leaks sub-reddit has shown us a detailed depiction of Focalors, showing her appearance from different angles and perspectives. The concept art matches the previous leaks that suggested she wields a sword and has gravity-based abilities. The concept art also reveals her elegant and intricate outfit, which reflects her status as the Hydro Archon and her connection to water. Here are some of the highlights of her outfit:
- Her dress is blue and white, with wave patterns on the hem and sleeves.
- She wears a large cape that resembles a waterfall, with droplet-shaped ornaments hanging from it.
- She has a crown-like headpiece that resembles a water lily, with a blue gem in the center.
- She has long blonde hair that flows like water, with blue streaks on the ends.
- She has blue eyes that glow with power and wisdom.
Other Fontaine Leaks
Focalors' concept art is not the only leak that has given us a glimpse into Fontaine's secrets. Several other leaks have revealed more information about Fontaine's characters, features, and story. Some of these leaks are:
- The introduction of Charlotte, Fontaine's first playable character. She is a four-star Hydro catalyst user who can summon water bubbles and manipulate water currents.
- The reveal of Lynette, Wriothesley, and Captain R, three other characters from Fontaine who have unique designs and personalities. Lynette is a cheerful maid who works for Focalors, Wriothesley is a mysterious noble who has ties to the Fatui, and Captain R is a pirate who leads a crew of rebels.
- The introduction of a new subterranean cartography system that allows players to explore underground areas and discover hidden treasures and secrets. This system will add more depth and variety to Fontaine's map and gameplay.
What's Next for Genshin Impact?
Fontaine is expected to be released in August 2023, as part of Version 4.0 of Genshin Impact. This update will mark the end of the Sumeru chapter and the beginning of a new era for the game. However, before we can dive into Fontaine's waters, we still have one more update to look forward to: Version 3.8.
Version 3.8 will be the final update for Sumeru, the desert region that introduced us to characters like Albedo, Sucrose, Rosaria, and Kazuha. This update will feature a new temporary location called Penumbra, which is a dark and mysterious place that hints at Fontaine's arrival. This update will also bring new skins for Klee and Kaeya, two popular characters from Mondstadt. Additionally, this update will have a rerun banner for Eula, one of the most sought-after five-star characters in the game.
Genshin Impact continues to impress and surprise its fans with its constant updates and content. With Fontaine on the horizon and more regions to come in the future, there is always something new and exciting to look forward to in this game.
