Genshin Impact 1.6 update press release describes the early hours of the update as follows.
In the upcoming update, the story begins when Klee receives a mysterious letter from a “Dodo-King” threatening to take Dodoco away from her. To help Klee and Dodoco, the Traveler will sail on a boat called a “Waverider” and explore a secluded archipelago scattered over a remote sea area in search of the mysterious “Dodoland.”
During the search, players’ wits will be put to the test in a series of challenges, including a tough fight with Maguu Kenki. This new opponent can summon phantoms, dealing both Anemo and Cryo damage, and can only be taken down while in close-range combat.
By completing these challenges, players can obtain event currencies to redeem valuable resources and the brand-new four-star catalyst “Dodoco Tales” to full refinement from the Event Shop.

- Two summer outfits for Jean & Barbara
- The Midsummer Island Adventure Seasonal Event to explore a new remote time-limited sea area
- First playable character from Inazuma – Kazuha
