The Traveler wonders through the new Sumeru region in Genshin Impact

Want to know about the Genshin Impact Sumeru region? This new nation is coming to the anime game in the Genshin Impact 3.0 update, along with new faces such as Tighnari, and Collei, who also happen to wield the Dendro element, which will be releasing alongside Sumeru.

Sumeru is the fourth major region to be introduced to the RPG game, and one of the seven nations of the world of Teyvat, like Liuye, Mondstadt, and Inazuma. Sumeru’s people and its Archon – Kusanali – also follow the Dendro element.

Sumeru release date

The Sumeru release date is August 24, 2022, at the same time as Genshin Impact 3.0. This was confirmed during the recent Genshin Impact 3.0 livestream, which revealed more information about the area.

How to get to Sumeru

While we currently don’t know how to get to Sumeru, dataminer Ubatcha claims the region is located to the left of the Chasm. A group of Reddit users also recently discovered a new tunnel leading through the Chasm, so it’s looking more likely that Sumeru could appear in this location.
