The Chasm is an upcoming area that will release in Genshin Impact, and we’ve got everything you need to know about these ancient ruins, from map leaks to deadly enemies.

Travelers have been wondering when HoYoverse will add The Chasm to Genshin Impact for a while now, but it now looks like the wait is nearly over.

Teyvat is home to numerous regions and cultures, but one location that continues to spark a lot of mystery is The Chasm – a vast area located within Liyue. 

First officially revealed during the Version 2.5 livestream, players have been treated to a full look of all the mechanics of the new region ahead of Genshin Impact Version 2.6.

Here’s what you need to know about venturing into The Chasm.

The Chasm release date in Genshin Impact

The Chasm is coming to Genshin Impact as part of Version 2.6, which launches on March 30, 2022. The new location will be released alongside new character Kamisato Ayato and more.

This means Travelers won’t have to wait much longer before they can delve into the depths of these ancient caverns. 

The Chasm details

The Chasm is the next area that Genshin Impact players will be able to explore.

The Chasm is a dark and mysterious place, which makes it all the more thrilling to explore.

Hidden in the mountains of Liyue, its depths reach out across the nation. The Chasm was formed after a celestial body crashed into the earth, with a large mine eventually being formed around it. 

The location is said to be filled with strange stones and mysterious ores, while the soil and vegetation around the area have distinctive colors. The underground mines are the most treacherous areas, and what’s more, down in The Chasm’s depths, unique fluorescent plants can be found.

The Chasm is located in Liyue.

Esther, an NPC located in Dragonspine notes that the Chasm’s climate is different from Liyue: “I’ve seen similar occurrences elsewhere in the past, such as The Chasm in Liyue, so there may be some similarities in their respective terrain features.”

The ancient Geo elemental dragon, Azhdaha, also famously dwelled within the Chasm before finding his way to the Trounce Domain Beneath the Dragon-Queller. And given it has 14 different subareas, it’s no small map update.

The Chasm enemies: Ruin Serpents

The Ruin Serpent is an ancient mechanical snake that dwells within the depths of The Chasm.

This machine has come alive for an unknown reason, which means the Traveler and Paimon will need to be incredibly careful when exploring the underground caverns.

A new gadget named the Lumenstone Adjuvant will be handed to players to help illuminate pathways of The Chasm.

Players can increase the potency of their Lumenstone Adjuvant by collecting Lumenspar while venturing into the depths of the new region. It will help light the way — alongside the Starshrooms — and will also buff you up while exploring.

Much like Dragonspine’s Frostbearing Tree, you can earn rewards from ranking up your Lumenstone Adjuvant. This includes weapon billets, Primogems, XP, Mora, character development items, and more. You’ll need to have this gadget equipped to do some heavy lifting while in The Chasm.
