The Genshin Impact 4.2 update is quickly approaching, bringing with it a new 5-star and the return of fan-favorite characters. So, here’s everything we presently know about the future update.
While Genshin Impact players are currently preparing for the 4.1 Livestream, information about the impending 4.2 update has begun to emerge. With Furina and a rumored Childe-themed final battle on the horizon, the Genshin Impact 4.2 update is one to keep an eye out for.
After all, the Fontaine region of the game is still full of intrigue and new characters to encounter. If you’d like a sneak peek at the latest update before its release, or if you’d like to see what future banners contain, be sure to visit our 4.2 portal for all the latest information.
Genshin Impact Version 4.2 Release Date
HoYoverse has not disclosed the release date for Genshin Impact 4.2. The 4.1 release updates, however, are anticipated to be released on September 27, 2023. Considering that each update cycle lasts approximately six weeks, it is reasonable to infer that the 4.2 update will be released in early November.

Genshin Impact Leak Reveals Version 4.2 First Half Banners
Uncle YC, a trusted Genshin Impact leaker, says that the 4.2 banners will have Furina and Ayato, as well as Baizhu and Cyno. We don’t know a lot about Furina, but we do know that she is the Hydro Archon of Fontaine right now.
In the coming months, HoYoverse will probably tell us more about Furina and the new banners, so we’ll be sure to update this area as soon as we hear more.
Take a look at Genshin Impact (4.2) BANNERS:

Genshin Impact 4.2 Enemies
Leaks about Genshin Impact 4.2 show that Childe’s summoned whale could be one of the main bosses. This seems crazy, but since the whale is a water call, it’s not totally crazy either.
As if that wasn’t already exciting enough, a new enemy idea has also come up. The figure in the picture above looks like it goes by the name Ptakhur. It’s still not clear what kind of weapon and element they’ll use, but Ptakhur looks a lot like Iniquitous Baptist.
This means that they could control many different factors. As always, you should take these stories with a grain of salt because they could change before the game comes out.
Genshin Impact 4.2 Leaked Characters
Now that you can go wherever you want in Fontaine and have finished the archon and world quests, more and more people are starting to show up. Some are shown in ads, while others are only mentioned.

Latest Genshin Impact Leaks Reveal Multiple Variants of Furina Kits
Before getting into the details, it’s essential to know what’s going on with the five-part leaks in Genshin Impact about the Hydro Archon Furina. The character is likely to be added to the game in update 4.2, and all of the information in the leaks came from the closed beta.
Uncle 100 and Uncle A are talking about two kits right now. Uncle Chicken, Uncle Regret, and Uncle Ahq are also well-known leakers who have built on the original information. Uncle Chicken also says that HoYoverse has broken Furina’s kit up into pieces that are being tried one at a time in the closed beta. So, all of this is likely to change.
Uncle 100 was the first person in Genshin Impact to talk about Furina, also called Focalor’s kit. They leaked information about the Hydro Archon’s kit, Elemental Skill, Elemental Burst, and Constellation.
It looks like Furina will be able to use stacks that are in her kit. At C0, she’ll be able to hit 500/650 stacks. You can get these stacks by gaining or losing HP, which will improve the Healing Bonus or the Elemental DMG Bonus, respectively.
The Hydro Archon’s Elemental Skill in Genshin Impact is supposed to call a small creature to the field, which will make Furina fight together. It could have different movements for her Normal Attack, Charged Attack, and Elemental Burst.
According to the leaker, her Elemental Burst could give her a buff that increases her damage and an elemental intake.
The leaks also mention four of Furina’s constellations, it states:
- Constellation 1: By unlocking Furina’s C1, players will be able to gain the additional 150 stacks and reach the max threshold of 650.
- Constellation 2: It is expected to improve her damage, allowing her to be played as a Hypercarry.
- Constellation 4: It may improve her Energy Recharge.
- Constellation 6: Her C6 is expected to double the rate at which Furina gains the aforementioned stacks without exceeding the cap of 650.
