Genshin Impact players are expecting the game’s 1.6 update, Midsummer Island Adventure, on June 9 as well, which will feature such notable additions as the Companion Move-In feature. Along with things like new quests and weapons, update 1.6’s Companion Move-In feature gives players the ability to invite companions to move into their Serenitea Pot.
Genshin Impact launched last year as a The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild-inspired RPG made by the Chinese developer. The game has seen massive success and launched on PlayStation 5 since then. A Nintendo Switch launch is on the way too, though that version still lacks a release date.
