The update is bringing a new training event to the mountain of Dragonspine, meaning players will need to make sure they're equipped for the freezing cold. In addition to some challenging training, which is broken up into three parts, players can also take part in building Puffy Snowmen by collecting the parts needed.

As one last challenge, there's a new dangerous boss on Tsurumi Island called the Golden Wolflord. This foe is capable of using Corrosion against your party while also summoning Rifthound Skulls to protect himself, so you'll have to stock up on healing items to even stand a chance against him.

Genshin Impact is currently available and free-to-play on mobile devices, PS5 and PS4.
