One thing players will no doubt be looking forward to is finally being able to play as Xiao. This character has been featured in the story, but up to this point, has never been playable.

There are also a few events planned for this latest Genshin Impact update. There is All That Glitters, an event that focuses on Xiao; Lantern Rite Tales, which is all about using the game’s photo mode; Theater Mechanicus, a tower-defence game; and Xiao Market, a special shop that uses event-currency.

An overview on PCGamer also notes that there will be some smaller events that reward a good supply of Primogems as well as a new enemy introduced to the game called the Geovishap. There looks to be a decent amount to do in the upcoming Genshin Impact 1.3 update.
