The developer also explained that there were difficulties in figuring out the art style of these places in Genshin Impact while in development.
In the recent GDC 2021 conference, miHoYo provided more details about the upcoming events for Genshin Impact. We know now thanks to the translation provided by Siliconera that the seven continents of Teyvat will be integrated into the game in just four years.
As of now, we only have threeof the seven continentsthat are playable, which includes Mondstadt, Liyue, and Inazuma. Sumeru, Fontaine, Natlan, and Snezhnaya are the continents that will be added over the next four years and we`re eager to explore these.
The panel debated how each of these continents developed. While the concept behind each of the locations came about during early developmentthe creator explained that there were issues in figuring the appropriate style for the look of the world. According to Siliconera`s translation the method used to create these worlds “includes the mixing of layers as well as using various rendering effects in order to create the stylized look created by Genshin Impact.”
In addition to the Genshin Impact news, players have been trying to reach the island that is new, Inazuma, through using ice bridges. They`re doing this as an attempt to get around level restrictions to get to Inazumahowever miHoYo recognized this in advance and has been able to stop this from taking place, much to players` dismay.
