- According to a new leak, Genshin Impact’s Version 4.3 update will introduce two new characters, Navia and Chevreuse, to the game’s playable roster.
- Fontaine, the newest region in the game, has already introduced several new characters, and there are more to come in future updates.
- Navia’s debut as a Geo Claymore character will mark the first addition of a new Geo element character in almost two years, making it highly anticipated by players.
Genshin Impact‘s newest leaks have given players a teaser of two brand-new characters, Navia and Chevreuse, expected to be added to the game with the Version 4.3 update. The debut of the HoYoverse RPG’s newest region of Fontaine has introduced fans to a wide cast of new characters throughout its introduction. Players have already been able to pick up the siblings from the “House of the Hearth,” with Lyney and Lynette available during Version 4.0’s first half and Freminet during the second half. Now, even more upcoming roster members are being teased for the game.
While only three characters from Fontaine’s initial cast have been made playable so far, Genshin Impact‘s story has already teased plenty more to come. Version 4.1 will see the addition of Fontaine’s Chief Justice Neuvillette and the Fortress of Meropide’s administrator Wriothesley to the playable cast as Hydro and Cryo Catalyst characters. The story would also showcase several upcoming characters, including Navia, Charlotte, and Clorinde, among others. Now, Version 4.3’s featured characters are being teased, multiple patches in advance.
A new leak shared by prominent Genshin Impact leaker Tao via fellow leaker StepLeaker revealed the elements and weapons for a pair of new characters coming in Version 4.3. Version 4.3 is set to introduce Navia as the update’s featured five-star character, being introduced to the game as a Geo Claymore character. Navia will be joined by the previously-teased Chevreuse, who will debut as a Pyro Polearm character within Genshin Impact. The Version 4.3 update is currently expected to be released in late December.
Navia’s introduction to the playable roster will mark a major return for Genshin Impact that many players have been calling for. Navia is expected to debut as the first new Geo element character added to the game in nearly two years. The last Geo character to be added to Genshin Impact came with Yun Jin’s debut in January 2022, with the Geo element’s last five-star roster member coming a month earlier with Arataki Itto’s launch in Version 2.3. Genshin Impact notably did not release a new Geo character throughout the entirety of the Sumeru region’s cycle.
Navia’s release comes following a plethora of highly-anticipated debuts expected for Genshin Impact‘s roster throughout the next few updates. Alongside the previously-mentioned Neuvillette and Wriothesley in Version 4.1, Fontaine’s Hydro Archon Furina is expected to debut with the launch of Version 4.2 alongside the four-star character Charlotte. Past regions have also seen new characters teased within recent leaks, including the long-awaited arrival of Liyue’s Cloud Retainer. Genshin Impact‘s playable roster looks to see a significant boost during Fontaine, with plenty of new and unique characters on the way.
Genshin Impact is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile devices. A Switch version is in development.
