New Desert Area in Genshin 3.1

Genshin - Sumeru Desert Area

One of the biggest highlights of the 3.1 update is the release of the Desert area of Sumeru, named Deshret Desert. It is the polar opposite of the Dharma Forest, as the sandy area features arid landscapes and dry terrain. The Desert area is also home to the devotees of the Scarlet King, with various large pyramids inspired by Ancient Egyptian cultures.

The release of the Desert area comes with a whole new map, quests, puzzles, and exciting lore! See everything we know about the area in our full guide.
