A leak from the beta version of Genshin Impact 2.1 has revealed that the free RPG will get the hunting mechanics. Leaking through several sources but relatively focused on reputation Jinshin Report, he says update 2.1 will include Watasumi Island, which is part of an archipelago near the mainland, and maybe Serai Island as well. As is often the case with Genshin, these new areas are hinted at or mentioned by previous characters but cannot be visited until an update.
This makes it look like 2.1 is another huge content patch, continuing the sheer flow of major updates that Genshin Impact has gotten this year.

As with all leaks, this isn’t confirmed until the developer – in this case miHoYo – confirms it’s true through the right announcement. Take it with caution and expect things to change during development if the leak proves true.
This leak follows a Leaking, yesterday, of the characters that may be included in update 2.1, as Baal, Kokomi and Sara. This leak was also widely reported by Genshin Report.

Did you know that a sprawling RPG of any kind isn’t really complete until it has a mini hunting game? This is a scientific fact, proven by James Nintendo in 1986. I’m glad that for all this time after its release, Genshin is finally taking the necessary steps to become a true video game by adding the lively and timeless practice of hunting.
