As an avid Genshin Impact player, you’re probably eagerly awaiting the release of version 4.0, which promises to introduce a new region, Fontaine, along with a host of new characters. This article will provide a detailed overview of these upcoming characters, offering insights into their abilities, lore, and potential roles in the game.
1. Arlecchino: The Harbinger of Joy
Arlecchino, a highly anticipated character, is set to make her debut in the Fontaine region. Rumored to be a five-star sword unit with a Pyro delusion, she’s the 10th Fatui harbinger and is believed to be stronger than Childe, the weakest Harbinger. Her abilities are speculated to revolve around controlling other characters, but we’ll have to wait for the official release to confirm this.
2. Lyney: The Pyro Archer
Lyney, another exciting character, first appeared in the Teyvat Chapter storyline preview video. He’s a five-star character with a Pyro vision and uses a bow. According to the lore, he and his sister Lynette run a magic show in Fontaine, and they may have some connection with Arlecchino.
3. Lynette: The Anemo Swordswoman
Lynette, Lyney’s sister, is an upcoming four-star sword-wielding character with an Anemo vision. Her abilities seem to be similar to Yelan’s, and she might be a good alternative to Kazuha for dealing swirl damage.
4. Freminet: The Cryo Claymore User
