A new Genshin Impact leak reveals the release date for the next live stream event for Update 3.1 which is expected to arrive at the end of September.
Genshin Impact has a very tight update schedule, each lasting about six weeks. After months of speculation, the current 3.0 version has finally introduced the new major region named Sumeru with its new characters.
Before each update arrives, developer HoYoverse releases a live stream event that reveals all the upcoming content. A believable Genshin Impact The leaker named Plusleleaks has apparently revealed the release date of the upcoming version 3.1 live stream event.
The leaker claims the event will take place on September 17 and could be part of this year’s Tokyo Game Show. During their latest livestream event, developer HoYoverse has already confirmed that Genshin Impact version 3.1 will arrive on September 28, a week earlier than usual. In fact, the first three Sumeru updates (3.0, 3.1, and 3.2) will be a week shorter to compensate for the delay that occurred with the 2.6 update.

Nilou will likely be a new support or sub-DPS character whose playstyle revolves around triggering a new elemental reaction named Bloom. She apparently has the ability to transform Dendro Cores into Bountiful Cores which explode faster and have a larger area of effect.
