What We Expect To See

The version is called "As Light Rain Falls Without Reason", which could be foreshadowing the overall Fontaine story? If so, there probably will be a divine reason why it's raining in Fontaine, this might feel similar to the thundering storms of Inazuma that are supposed to showcase the omnipresence of Baal.

We have got a little sneak peek into the Fontaine set that was built for the special announcement, and it's looking pretty good! There are some teal hues that we are already familiar with from the teaser trailer, some greenery and golden art deco architecture. The biggest eye catch is most certainly the huge portal in the background that stretches into an abandoned underwater ruin with some fishies and underwater plants.

You pride yourself on your main a lot and desperately need to show your love for them all the time? Then I got just the right product for you. These keychains come in an adorable chibi art style and are dirt cheap. There are A LOT of options to choose from!

As with the huge region announcements that came before, we can probably expect a lot of new gameplay info and looks into the general terrain of Fontaine. It's almost certain that we will also see some new Fontaine characters, which we theorize will be Lyney and Lynette and maybe even Charlotte.

And of course, we will get some new redeem codes and the Genshin team also teased more goodies to come. If you already know that you can't be there to watch the livestream, make sure to come back to our website when we talk about everything that has gotten revealed.
