A recent leak on the official Genshin_Impact_Leaks has revealed that we could get a brand new region in one of the following updates. The new update could also bring the long-awaited Dendro Element.

Genshin Impact  has taken the gaming industry by storm and the player base keeps growing by each day. Recent leaks have revealed pretty much all of the content that we are going to see in the upcoming 2.2 update.

After a couple of "filler updates", players were unhappy that we didn't get a new region since the Dragonspine event back at the start of 2021 when we had both Albedo and Ganyu featured on separate banners. Even though many players rolled for Venti and Zhongli, the fan base isn't too happy about the fact that we had two banner re-runs in a single update. We even had a Keqing banner during the 1.4 update.

Luckily miHoYo decided to step their game up and introduce a new major region known as Inazuma. Even though the Inazuma update just came out, the fanbase started discussions about a new region. Chasm is a region many players were predicting to arrive before Inazuma since the name already made its way to the game's map, southwest from the Liyue region.

A recent tweet from a credible Genshin Impact leaker has revealed some additional information about Chasm. According to the Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit Chasm will apparently arrive in update 2.4. The new region will bring a new element as well.

So far the only elemental reaction that includes Dendro is Burning. The grass is considered a Dendro object and will spread the burn effect around the area. The fact that this element only interacts with Pyro might be one of the reasons why we haven't seen a Dendro character yet. It would surely require a major change to the elemental reaction fighting mechanics of the game.
