In the upcoming Genshin Impact 3.6 update, players can look forward to exploring a brand new desert area, which the live stream teased as, “legend has it that a forbidden realm lies beneath the desert, with ruins of an ancient civilization and legacy of the divine.”

This area will be home to the two new bosses, including the highly anticipated Dendro Dragon. It was previously leaked that the 3.6 version would introduce a new zone to Sumeru, complete with the Dendro Dragon’s Cave and Dendro Archon’s Lake, and it looks like those rumors were true. As always, discovering new areas in Genshin is an exciting adventure, and players can expect to uncover plenty of new lore details. Plus, defeating these new bosses will reward players with the resources needed to level up and ascend the two new dendro characters, Baizhu and Kaveh.

Each enemy will likely have unique abilities and require Travelers to come up with new strategies to defeat them and acquire the ascension materials for the new characters in 3.6. It’s always exciting to face new challenges and see what new enemies the game developers have in store for us!

New ‘Sorush’ Gadget

In Genshin Impact 3.6, players can look forward to a new gadget called Sorush. As you can see from the screenshot above, the gadget looks similar to a Seele and functions as a drone.
