Genshin Impact 2.1 New Locations

In the upcoming massive update, Genshin Impact will get a lot of new content like new characters, weapons, quests, stories, festivals, events, etc. In this post, we will tell you more about two new upcoming locations that will be added with the release of Genshin Impact 2.1.

Inazuma is a new region that was added to Genshin Impact some time ago and it is expanding. Two new Islands will be unlocked in the game on 1st September. Those are:

  • Watatsumi Island
  • Seirai Island
Genshin Impact new islands

Both islands have interesting zones to explore and monsters to fight. If you are an attentive player you might know that both of the islands were revealed back in patch 1.6 and now they are finally coming to the game.

Watatsumi Island

Watatsumi Island is located on the opposite end of Narukami Island (Inazuma), where the Electro Archon resides. The people of Watatsumi Island are lead by Sangonomiya Clan and worship the Watatsumi Omikami. That causes some troubles to the area.

There are three subareas that will be introduced on Watatsumi Island:

  • Sangonomiya Shrine
  • Sangonomiya City
  • Bourou Village
Sangonomiya Shrine

What you can see in the picture above is Sangonomiya Shrine, which is located at the centre of this island, surrounded by a canopy of mountains and waterfalls. Sangonomiya Shrine is the base for the resistance army led by Sangonomiya Kokomi, which opposes the Raiden Shogun’s Vision Hunt Decree.

During your explorations, you will find the following enemies on Watatsumi:

  • Hydro Hypostasis Boss
  • Anemo Specter
  • Geo Specter
  • Hydro Specter

The island is very beautiful and will bring a lot of fun to players who enjoy good views.

Seirai Island

This is the other area that will appear in Genshin Impact in 2.1. There are some points of interest that we know about right now. But it seems that more information will be revealed soon. The uniqueness of this island lies in the storms that create recognizable geography.

For now, we know about one subarea on Serai Island:

  • Amakumo Peak

A place for one of the bosses of Inazuma:

  • Thunder Manifestation
The Asase Shrine

It is also known that The Asase Shrine from the picture above will also appear in the game as a part of Seirai Island, Inazuma.
