The Genshin Impact 4.1 update has arrived, bringing with it some unexpected quality-of-life changes. One of the major upgrades in this version is the interactive map on HoYoLAB, specifically designed to assist treasure hunters and players who enjoy collecting every single item on the map. The new feature includes a difficulty warning for each notable collectible, providing information on how hard it will be to obtain.
This update comes at the perfect time, as Fontaine’s map has just been expanded, adding more collectibles to the Hydro nation’s northern borders. Genshin Impact 4.0 introduced underground maps, and now, with the release of Genshin Impact 4.1, the difficulty warnings on the interactive map provide treasure hunters with more information than ever before.
For those who take on the challenge of finding all the chests and collectibles, keeping the HoYoLAB interactive map open while playing the game is essential. Although the map allows you to check off and track collectibles as you go, there is currently no way to sync that progress and track it in-game simultaneously.
The HoYoLAB interactive map offers far more features than the in-game map at the moment, but there is hope that, over time, the in-game map will adopt more of the features seen in the former.
Even if you do not plan on finding every single new treasure chest and collectible in the 4.1 map expansion, it is worth considering finding a few of them to earn extra Primogems. These Primogems can be used to spend on the new character banners, where Neuvillette and Hu Tao are currently available as the five-star offers. If you are unsure of who to pull for, you can refer to the Genshin Impact tier list. Also, remember to redeem any active Genshin Impact codes to give yourself more chances in obtaining the characters you desire.
Overall, the Genshin Impact 4.1 update brings exciting changes to the game, particularly in terms of the interactive map and the additional collectibles. Whether you are a dedicated treasure hunter or just enjoy exploring the game world, this update offers new challenges and rewards to enhance your Genshin Impact experience.
