Genshin Impact 4.4 Leaks: What to Expect from the Next Update
Genshin Impact is a popular open-world RPG game that has been releasing new content and features with every major update. The game is currently in version 4.1, which introduced the Fontaine region, new characters, bosses, events, and more.
However, fans are already looking forward to the next update, version 4.4, which is expected to be released in January 2024. According to some leaks and rumours, version 4.4 will bring some exciting additions to the game, such as a new region, new skins, and new playable characters. Here is what we know so far about the Genshin Impact 4.4 leaks.
Chenyu Vale: A New Region to Explore
One of the most anticipated features of version 4.4 is the debut of Chenyu Vale, a region that lies between Fontaine and Sumeru. Chenyu Vale has been mentioned by many NPCs in the game, especially in Liyue and Sumeru, as a place for trade, tea, and adventure.
Chenyu Vale is said to have a humid climate with many mountains and rivers. It is also rumoured to have a special offering mechanism that allows players to offer blue carp to the Spirit Jade. Chenyu Vale will likely be connected to the story of Cloud Retainer and Madame Ping, two of the Adepti who fought in the Archon War.
Cloud Retainer is one of the current Adepti who resides in Mount Aozang and has a vast knowledge of alchemy and engineering. Madame Ping is an old lady who lives in Liyue Harbor and sells teapots. She is also an Adeptus who can transform into a crane.
Ganyu and Xingqiu will be the next skins for Genshin Impact and will come in 4.4:

Cloud Retainer and Madame Ping: New Playable Characters
Another major leak for version 4.4 is the addition of Cloud Retainer and Madame Ping as new playable characters. According to some sources, Cloud Retainer will be the featured 5-star character in the 4.4 banners, replacing the previously speculated Shenhe.
Cloud Retainer is expected to be an Anemo Polearm user with a powerful kit. Madame Ping will also be added as a new 5-star character, possibly in a later banner. Madame Ping’s element and weapon are unknown, but she might have some connection to Geo or Dendro.
In addition to Cloud Retainer and Madame Ping, version 4.4 will also feature some returning characters in the banners, such as Xiao, Ganyu, and Shenhe. Xiao is a 5-star Anemo polearm user who is one of the Yakshas who protect Liyue from evil spirits.
Ganyu is a 5-star Cryo bow user who is the secretary of Liyue Qixing and a half-human half-adeptus hybrid. Shenhe is a new 5-star Cryo Claymore user who is a disciple of Cloud Retainer and has a frosty personality.

Ganyu and Xingqiu: New Skins for Liyue Characters
Version 4.4 will also bring some new skins for two of the Liyue characters: Ganyu and Xingqiu. Ganyu’s new skin will be purchasable in the shop, while Xingqiu’s skin will be free. The details of the skins are not yet revealed, but they might be related to Chenyu Vale or the Lunar New Year festival.
Ganyu’s current skin is her default outfit, which consists of a white dress with blue accents and a fur collar. She also wears a blue ribbon on her hair and a jade pendant on her neck. Xingqiu’s current skin is his default outfit, which consists of a blue robe with gold embroidery and a white undershirt. He also wears a blue hat with a feather and a book on his waist.
Some other characters who are rumoured to have new skins in development are Zhongli, Qiqi, and Chongyun. However, these skins are not likely to be released in version 4.4.
Genshin Impact 4.4 leaks suggest that the next update will be packed with new content and features for players to enjoy. The new region of Chenyu Vale will offer a new landscape and lore for players to explore, while the new playable characters of Cloud Retainer and Madame Ping will add more diversity and depth to the roster.
The new skins for Ganyu and Xingqiu will also give players more options to customize their favourite characters. However, these leaks are not official or confirmed by HoYoverse, so they should be taken with a grain of salt.
The actual release date, banner characters, and skins may differ from the leaks. Therefore, players should wait for the official announcement from HoYoverse before getting too hyped or disappointed. Until then, players can enjoy the current version of 4.1 and all the content it has to offer.
