Genshin Impact 3.1 – All New Desert Creatures & Biomes

HoYoverse detailed the new Genshin Impact creatures and biomes Travelers can find during their adventures of the Great Red Sand in Sumeru.
Genshin Impact 3.1 – All New Desert Creatures & Biomes

In the upcoming Genshin Impact 3.1 update, King Deshret and the Three Magi will plunge Travelers into the heart of the Sumeru desert to uncover the mysteries of an ancient civilization hidden in the Great Red Sand. Despite its harsh and humid weather, the desert is also home to several new creatures and biomes that thrive under these conditions.

Some of these creatures may be familiar, but with the new biomes, they are an integral part of the desert area's ecosystem. We'll look at all the new desert creatures and biomes set to debut in the Genshin Impact 3.1 update.

All Creatures & Living Beings In Genshin Impact 3.1

The Desert Sumpter Beast is like the cousin to the Shaggy Sumpter Beast many encountered in the rainforests of Sumeru. These large and robust creatures have adapted to extreme conditions. Still, they are frequently seen carrying luggage and goods of the Akademiya researchers or avid travelers venturing out in the desert.

When traveling across the mountainous dunes, another creature, although deadly, Travelers will likely spot the Scorpion. Like in the real world, the venomous arthropods rest below the sandstone and can attack if threatened, so be careful of your movements.

Another unique creature that calls the Great Red Sand its home is the scavenger Red Vulture in Genshin Impact 3.1. With its large wingspan and bright red feathers, this bird mainly survives on the remains of living beings that succumbed to the desert heat.

The Scarab may be diminutive in size, but this little insect can be found scurrying across the sandy desert of Genshin Impact's Sumeru region. If Travelers pay special close attention to its unique shell design, the patterns resemble the markings one can see inside ruins hidden in the desert.

While the desert may be pretty limited in water resources, there is marine life that thrives despite not being underwater. The Quicksand Unagi looks like a desert worm, but this is due to it having adjusted to desert weather, which resulted in its interesting creature design.

While exploring the Great Red Sand in Genshin Impact 3.1, Travelers can stumble across an oasis where they can find a few biomes flourishing in this habitat. The Ajilenakh Nut is a fruit native to the area and can be used in cooking.

Its rugged exterior and sweet, delectable flesh are vital to those that live in the desert and its surroundings, as many find it nourishing. The Redcrest is another fruit Travelers can find in the desert, although it grows on cacti found nearby oasis thanks to its brightly jewel-tone crimson color.

The Genshin Impact 3.1 update, "King Deshret and the Three Magi," will release for PlayStation consoles, mobile devices, and PC via the Epic Games Store on 28th September 2022.
