Genshin Impact future content includes housing, costumes, co-op activities

Genshin Impact future content

The Genshin Impact release date is pinned down for September 28 on PC, Android, and iOS, and already gamers are asking for more. More about this wonderful free-to-play open-world anime action RPG from miHoYo, makers of Honkai Impact 3rd. Despite the name and visual similarities, the games aren't related at all. Luckily, the studio's co-founder Forrest Liu has revealed more details on what kind of Genshin Impact future content we can expect.

One of the things that was mentioned is the introduction of a housing system. While this is something that was teased during 2019, the lack of updates left us wondering if it was going to happen or not. Liu confirmed that it is one of the features that will be coming in the future, although he didn't reveal any details about it. For example, will it be a full-fledged housing system like the ones you see in MMORPGs such as ArcheAge or even Dragon Raja, or will it feature chibi versions of the Traveler and recruitable heroes in a dorm, like in Honkai Impact 3rd?

A costume system is another exciting feature coming with the Genshin Impact future content. With dozens of characters coming to the game in the long run – around 20 heroes are expected at launch -, the thought of different costumes is something that many players are going to love. With waifus aplenty and a stunning attention to clothing detail from the artists at miHoYo, we can already see costumes being one of the most desired items in the shop. We're speculating at this point, and hopefully free players will be able to unlock new costumes as well, but being a free-to-play game, it makes perfect sense to feature purchasable outfits.

While Genshin Impact isn't an MMORPG and can be played as a single-player game, a cooperative mode allows you to join other players. During the beta tests, up to three players could enter the world of another Traveler, but it looks like there are plans to expand on the current four-player limit. Liu says that they are looking into activities that allow even more players to participate, with a focus in pushing the social aspect of the game.

Finally, domains (dungeons in Genshin Impact) will see a overhaul, with more dynamic mechanics and the goal of making them more suited for strategic party setups.

It goes without saying that new characters, stories, and the remaining five cities – the beta tests only featured two cities out of seven, Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor – will make it into the game in the future.
