When is the Genshin Impact Sumeru release date?

It’s already here! With the arrival of version 3.0, the Genshin Impact Sumeru release date is upon us, and we’re now free to explore this beautiful new region.

As of version 3.1, we also got access to the second part of the region – the Sumeru desert.

What is Genshin Impact’s Sumeru?

Sumeru is one of the Seven Nations of Teyvat, first referenced in the Teyvat Chapter Storyline preview. It consists of vibrant, rich rainforests at its heart, beyond which lie vast deserts.

Sumeru is ruled by the dendro archon, Lesser Lord Kusanali, or the God of Wisdom. She’s the youngest among the Seven, having taken the role of archon after the death of the God of the Woods during the Cataclysm, about 500 years before the events of the game. That may sound like quite some time ago, but when we consider Genshin Impact’s Zhongli is 6,000 years old, it’s a pretty small number.

Sumeru is known as the centre of knowledge and is home to the well-renowned Sumeru Academia, the leading school of arcane arts and historical records, and the most prestigious institute in all of Teyvat. You’ve likely bumped into a few Sumeru scholars while exploring Inazuma, and several characters including Genshin Impact’s Lisa actually studied among their ranks.

How do I get to Sumeru in Genshin Impact?

Sumer is located to the West of Genshin Impact’s Chasm. To get there, head to the Cinnibar Cliff teleport waypoint. Here, you find yourself at the entrance of a cave. Walk through to get to Sumeru’s Gandharva Vale. If you track the new Archon quest, Paimon will give you a couple of hints to help you on your way, too.
