Genshin Impact, miHoYo’s gacha-based RPG had taken the gaming industry by storm when it was released last year. Over the months, it has grown significantly and is one of the most popular games right now.

One of the most striking aspects of the game is the amount of content it gets on a frequent basis. The developers have already announced that a new update will come after every six weeks. The most recent update has been, the 1.4 Update, which added Rosaria and the Hangouts event.

We still have a few days to go for the 1.5 Update, and preparations for the 1.6 Update has already started. A lot has been leaked previously about the 1.6 Update, which stated that it might introduced the Inazuma region, which fans are eagerly waiting for. Alongside that, new characters like Kazuha, Yoimiya, Ayaka and Dendro element will likely be added. Now, another leak has surfaced about the update.

Genshin Impact 1.6 Leaks: Boat Travel Coming in Inazuma Update, Islands Leaked

The latest leak suggests that boat travel might be coming with the Inazuma update. This leak comes from the popular Genshin Impact Discord server, Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. The original source of the information is Genshin_Tz, and has been translated by the Discord server. Here is what the leak says:

No, this is not the whole of Inazuma, but a region between Inazuma and Liyue.

Q – The islands seem so small and spaced out. Will there be a boat mechanic, or bigger warships and sails like in Assasin’s Creed?
A – There will be boats.

This has been confirmed by Genshin Report as well:

Inazuma will begin with Beidou (and her crew) helping you secretly enter the region. It’s through this that you’ll meet Kazuha as well. This will double as a re-introduction to boats which will be frequently used in Inazuma.

From what I’ve heard, boats will be used in a similar capacity to how you reach the Pearl Galley in Liyue. There are currently no plans to let players steer the boats a la Assassin’s Creed.

This seems to be adding quite an interesting aspect to the game since boat travel is not possible as of now. Along with that, the islands from the Inazuma region have also been leaked, and players can travel between them using Beidou’s fleet. With the 1.6 update being a while away, fans have to wait a bit until they can use boats and travel to the Inazuma region in the game. The 1.6 Update is slated to arrive in June.
