Genshin Impact, the popular action RPG from HoYoverse, is set to introduce a new character, the Hydro Archon Focalors, in its upcoming update.
A recent leak has revealed concept art for this character, adding to the excitement surrounding the game’s next region, Fontaine.
The Anticipation Builds for Fontaine
As the expected release date for the Fontaine region draws closer, fans have been treated to a series of teasers about what to expect. The Version 3.7 Special Program gave players a glimpse of the region’s aquatic theme and introduced the first unique character from Fontaine, Charlotte.
Now, a significant character from the region, the Hydro Archon Focalors, has been leaked.
Focalors: The Hydro Archon
Focalors, the main deity of Fontaine, has been the subject of numerous rumors and leaks. It’s been suggested that she will wield a sword and her gameplay will involve gravity-based mechanics. The recent leak, which revealed concept art for Focalors, adds to the growing body of information about this character.
The leaked concept art, shared on the Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit, provides a detailed view of Focalors. The character is depicted in various angles, highlighting intricate details of her design. Focalors’ outfit is predominantly blue, reflecting her association with the water element in Genshin Impact.
The design also includes wave patterns at the bottom of her dress and teardrop-shaped pendants, adding to the aquatic theme.
More Leaks from Fontaine
The concept art for Focalors is part of a larger set of leaks about the Fontaine region.
Recent updates have revealed changes to the game’s map system for underground areas and details about other rumored characters from Fontaine, including Lynette, Wriothesley, and “Captain R”.
The Fontaine region is expected to be added to Genshin Impact in August with the release of Version 4.0.
What’s Next for Genshin Impact
While fans eagerly await the release of Version 4.0, Genshin Impact continues to roll out content for its current Sumeru update. The upcoming Version 3.8 is set to introduce a new limited-time region called Penumbra, which will serve as a precursor to Fontaine.
The update will also feature skins for two of the game’s original characters, Klee and Kaeya, and a re-run of the five-star character Eula. Although no new characters are expected to debut in this update, it promises to conclude the Sumeru cycle on a high note.
