Genshin Impact’s 2.6 update is picking up momentum with multiple leaks providing new insight on what we can expect to arrive soon. Followingly, Travelers will finally explore The Chasm, officially revealed during the 2.5 Special Program live stream.
The Chasm generated much excitement within the Genshin Impact community mainly due to its inaccessibility and connections with another region. While Travelers can expect to uncover the mysteries behind this location, The Chasm will provide many with the opportunity to access the area after months of waiting.
Genshin Impact 2.6 Leak: The Chasm map design and POIs
Recent leaks from the Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit unpacked more information for the next location arriving in the 2.6 update. In particular, the new map design for The Chasm features new Points of Interest, confirming what we know about this location thus far.
The leaked image shows that The Chasm is sporting a radial terrain design that supports the concept art HoYoverse supplied during the live stream.
Additionally, its design tied back to the location’s backstory, which was first created due to a celestial crash that started mining activities.
The leaked image also featured new Points of Interest, likely accessible from The Surface. These new POIs include five Teleport Waypoints, a Statue of the Seven and what appears to be an artifact domain.
There hasn’t been additional information on other POIs within this location, but we can expect to learn more in the coming weeks. According to various leaks, the Chasm’s location will connect to the game’s next explorable region, Sumeru.
Another leak provided new information for The Chasm’s expansive area, the Underground Mines. These include several more Teleport Waypoints; however, no Statue of the Seven or domains are present.
This may likely change as HoYoverse will introduce the Chasm in the latter half of the Genshin Impact 2.6 update. Followingly, the developments HoYoverse has made in this area highlight the vast progress made up until this point.
With the addition of new geographical information of The Chasm, another leak sheds some light on one of the area’s bosses, the Ruin Serpent. As of writing, the Ruin Serpent is an ancient snake-like creature that dwells within the Chasm; however, its exact location was not revealed.
This new leak suggests that the rock-like boss will likely spawn in an area within The Chasm, quite close to a Teleport Waypoint. Whether this boss will be seen at The Surface or the Underground Mines wasn’t clarified; nevertheless, Traveler's need to be cautious when exploring this hazardous location.
As we approach the impending release of the 2.6 update, we can likely expect more information on this cavernous area to be leaked. The Genshin Impact 2.6 update is rumoured to be arriving in late March 2022.
