Genshin Impact 4.1 characters & banners

Before the release of the version 4.1 update, leaked characters and banner details pointed toward two new five-star Fontaine playable releases. 

Aligning with previous leaks, HoYoverse then revealed the characters and banners coming with the version 4.1 update: Wriothesley and Neuvillette. These characters are both 5-star characters, with Wriothesley being a Cryo Catalyst user and Neuvillette being a Hydro Catalyst user.




Genshin Impact 4.1 new bosses

In Genshin's 4.1 update, there are two new bosses which players will be able to take on during their adventures in Fontaine: the Experimental Field Generator and the Millennial Pearl Seahorse - and both of these are crucial to take on, particularly if you're looking to get Ascension materials for Neuvillette and Wriothesley.

So that's all you need to know about Genshin Impact's 4.1 update. For the latest guides on everything Genshin, our Genshin Impact homepage has everything you'll need. Alternatively, check out our Genshin Impact tier list for a rundown of the best characters to use.
