The announcement comes with a lengthy new trailer to get everyone excited and while May 31 might not seem that far away, it's going to feel like an eternity for Genshin Impact fans around the world.
The mysteries in the depths of The Chasm are complicated and bewildering, and people have gathered here for different purposes.
The mountains and valleys stay silent while the visitors' thoughts are in turmoil. Nevertheless, the path to finding answers is unclear.
Where daylight falls, there are still things left to be done and wishes to be fulfilled.
