HoYoverse has announced that Genshin Impact‘s v3.2 update, “Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises,” is coming on November 2.
Following Genshin Impact’s 3.1 update, Sumeru’s main storyline will culminate in a climax before coming to a grand finale, and more local allies, including Nahida and Layla, will be ready to join as playable characters.
The Sumeru Archon Quest will finally conclude with its last chapter “Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises.” While the Traveler teams up with various characters to rescue Nahida from The Doctor’s nefarious plot with the Akademiya, the third Fatui Harbinger boss will stand in their way. During the epic boss fight, The Balladeer will transform into a massive mechanical-looking puppet with two forms and multiple elemental abilities.
2 new characters will also be made playable in this Genshin Impact update – Layla and Nahida.
Layla is an Akademiya student in Astrology who can sleepwalk to reveal her true power. In combat, she wields a sword and the power of Cryo, and she can provide both shielding and Cryo damage for the team.
Nahida, the current Dendro Archon, has been the Traveler’s reliable ally throughout the main storyline, will join the cast as a five-star Dendro catalyst, and she can cast a unique viewfinder-ish skill by holding her Elemental Skill to mark, link, and deal additional Dendro damage to opponents. Her power can be further enhanced if she teams up with Pyro, Electro, or Hydro characters.
Nahida and Yoimiya’s rerun will be featured in the early part of Version 3.2’s Event Wishes, and we will see Layla’s debut in both Yae Miko and Tartaglia’s reruns in the latter half.
Genshin Impact is now available for PS4, PS5, PC, and Mobile Devices.
