A recent Genshin Impact leak suggests the addition of a new "Quick Challenge" feature that enables players to fight weekly bosses without having to complete their respective story quests first.
This quality-of-life improvement is intended to facilitate a quicker and more convenient leveling experience for new players, as they will be able to acquire the required materials more easily for their characters.
Version 4.2 will introduce several significant updates, such as a new weekly boss, an expansion of the map in the Fontaine region, and the inclusion of Furina and Charlotte as playable characters.
A recent leak from Genshin Impact suggests a significant quality-of-life improvement for the game's weekly bosses, granting players the ability to challenge them before completing their respective story quests. Since its initial launch, the roster of playable characters in the HoYoverse RPG has expanded considerably over the course of three years, now featuring over 70 characters. One crucial aspect of developing these characters revolves around gathering various materials needed for their leveling, including plants, ores, and specific enemy loot. Now, HoYoverse aims to make the process of leveling characters more accessible for new players.
One of the main challenges for new players in Genshin Impact has always been acquiring the necessary materials to level up their newly obtained characters. Each character requires a diverse range of materials, including regional items and drops from enemies, for both leveling up and ascending. Bosses, in particular, pose a difficulty for players aiming to enhance their characters, as weekly boss encounters required for high-level Talents are typically locked behind story progression. However, a new change is planned for Version 4.2 that will enable players to challenge Genshin Impact's weekly bosses before reaching the corresponding story requirements.
A recent leak from Genshin Impact's HoneyHunter datamines has unveiled an exciting new feature called "Quick Challenge" for weekly bosses. Once players reach Adventure Rank 40, they will have the ability to easily challenge any of the game's weekly bosses with a simple button press. The best part is that players will no longer be required to complete the corresponding story chapter to face the weekly bosses. This change will significantly expedite the process of leveling up the game's latest characters, providing a quicker and more accessible experience. The "Quick Challenge" feature is expected to be released with Genshin Impact's Version 4.2 update, scheduled to launch in early November.
This helpful quality-of-life feature is accompanied by several other significant updates in Version 4.2 of the game. The update is anticipated to introduce a new weekly boss alongside the arrival of the Hydro Archon Furina. There are strong rumors suggesting that Version 4.2 will also bring a map expansion to the Fontaine region, expanding towards the east and introducing a new port town to the area. Additionally, the update will make Charlotte, the first revealed character from Fontaine, playable as a four-star unit, alongside the release of Furina.
Genshin Impact's upcoming updates will prioritize quality-of-life improvements, with another major change planned for Version 4.1. HoYoverse has announced that the game's Daily Commission system will undergo a revamp in the Version 4.1 Special Program, providing alternative methods for earning daily Primogem rewards. This update follows a similar system implemented in Honkai: Star Rail, which includes combat and exploration challenges as part of its daily tasks, along with a single Daily Mission. These new systems in Genshin Impact aim to streamline the gameplay experience for both new players and long-time veterans, enhancing the overall gameplay loop.
Genshin Impact is currently accessible on PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile devices. Additionally, a version for the Nintendo Switch is currently in development.
