Liyue's Lantern Rite Festival may be over, but that doesn't mean the party is. The celebrations are set to continue in Genshin Impact with Mondstadt's annual celebration of freedom -- and dandelion seeds, because Mondstadt.

Mondstadt's Windblume Festival commemorates the liberation of the city 2,600 years ago. During the festival, the citizens participate in outdoor activities. (There's also some true love-type stuff going on. Very appropriate for spring.) Players can take part in the festival by participating in mini-games and challenges. As with all of these events, there are some nice rewards, including the Windblume Ode 4-star weapon.

A unique feature of this update is a new type of story quest that boasts multiple endings. The quest focuses on the characters Barbara, Noelle, Bennett, and Chongyun. We'll have to wait until the update launches to find out exactly what the quest is about.

The version 1.4 update will also offer players more information about the Abyss Order and their association with the Traveler's sibling. The investigation into this takes places in the quest "Dough Keeper" where Dainsleif finally meets the Abyss Herald he's been looking for.

Of course, a new update means a new character as well, and this time Rosaria, (the Sister we met at Dragonspine) is joining the ranks. This is another polearm using character -- only this time Cryo instead of Pyro.

As noted in the Dev Discussion, the update will also add some QoL improvements, some relted to Concensed Resin. Players will now also be able to lower their world level. This will work in both single player and co-op mode.

On an additional note, if the end of the trailer is anything to go by, it looks like the KFC promotional stuff will be making its way to us at some poitn in the near future as well.
