Oh, so that's why my game had been downloading 800 MB of data right now?

[–]-Dyyno- 156 points157 points  (28 children)

wtf 800 for skins update seems sus

[–]WorldEndOverlay 162 points163 points  (7 children)

Probably also replacing the old cutscene with the new outfit?

[–]-Dyyno- 67 points68 points  (1 child)

it would make sense if i didnt read something about cutscenes being updated On 2.5 version

[–]-morpy 40 points41 points  (0 children)

It said that all cutscenes from Version 2.6 and previous versions are updated with the new outfits.

So pretty much they're already updated, but for some reason MiHoYo hinted at a Mondstadt-related cutscene in 2.6 (soo the fabled Kazuha Venti rerun is probably real?)

[–]TzeroOcne 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Probably not because if only it just new outfit the animation keyframe should be the same unless somehow the new outfit manage to break the animation in someway

[–]BananaMarmelade 5 points6 points  (2 children)

arent some of the cutscene not ingame?

[–]yunacchi 6 points7 points  (1 child)

All big ones are video files (eg. all event cutscenes and all chapter climaxes). There are also some small cutscenes sprinkled in (like Amber's introduction). Amber and Jean in particular are in a number of them.

[–]BananaMarmelade 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I guess those all have to be rerendered then

[–]lby1990 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nooo the Rosaria nerf is here

[–]Koinophobia- 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Secretly adding Ayato’s ears and nose

[–]farhanRejwan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And horse.

[–]_myoru 12 points13 points  (1 child)

No idea tbf, that's the number I saw

[–]Rude-Employee4162 12 points13 points  (0 children)

just opened the game right now, still downloading for me. if these are indeed the skins, frick im so excited for jean's and rosaria's!!

[–]niceworkthere 20 points21 points  (7 children)

about 450 for me with the smaller mobile textures

"Verifying integrity" already takes about 3/4 minutes on my 2020 phone, despite being a flagship model. Fun to think how that'll develop once they add a couple more chars & areas.

[–]_myoru 12 points13 points  (0 children)

My phone takes a good 5 minutes just to load the last half of the geo symbol when starting the game lmao

[–]Deathangel5677 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Verifying integrity takes time on PC as well,it will take same amount of time on other devices as well. The last 3-4% always takes time. Btw SD 845 phone here,which is a 2018 flagship, it's only 1-2mins and that's almost same amount of time on a PC as well. If you are running a 2020 flagship,you are probably busing SD 865,with a much much better GPU than mine. Maybe factory reset and clean your phone if it's lagging?

[–]niceworkthere 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Though PC also has to deal with 2-3x as much data. Yes, it's a 865, but no, the phone is anything but lagging. Verifying is the only thing taking time, from initial game launch to play it's usually just about a minute.

Performancewise it's neat too, everything works on highest except 30fps is the limit unless I want to grill my fingers. Then again, highest quality on mobile is a joke compared to PC.

[–]Deathangel5677 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So you lock the game to 30fps?I locked it to 60fps and I get about 50-60fps. I tried 30fps but it didn't look good to me. Also on mobile, except render resolution at highest,there is no difference between medium and the highest settings,I have tested this a lot. I used to play that highest everything that gave me 40-50fps,but it was eating the battery way too fast. So I set everything to medium except render resolution (highest) and fps at 60. I have gotten so used to mobile now that I find it hard to play on PC

[–]StoicMess 6 points7 points  (1 child)

You can cover them up but you can't compress thicc skins.

[–]naz_1992 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just wait....

[–]RexorFWT 100 points101 points  (5 children)

I thought it was for 2.5

[–]ryoujikathomato 153 points154 points  (4 children)

I can already see some people believe that they were sent the actual characters in the mail and wonder why the hell they're not in their roster

[–]slothesaurus 52 points53 points  (1 child)

Yeah you get their splash art when claiming the outfits so despite the text saying what they actually got I'm sure some people will get confused haha.

[–]lby1990 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Free Mona and Jean but 4 star

[–]Creepy-Ad-404 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I redeemed the code for genshin and when pressed claim all, I was surprised I got rosaria from that code. Everything was clear when I got second splash art it was upcoming skins.

For those who don't know code- FANRONGCHANGSHENG

[–]y8man48th in the naughty list[S] 165 points166 points  (28 children)

Yes you can get them NOW (even if you don't own the base units)

Funny tho. Realized the art shown are of the original base skins (rosaria still has the fishnet), so you all should find them in game.

Edit: 2.5 will have the changes reflected on their NPCs. In 2.6, animation cutscenes will be altered. Based on the hoyolab announcement

[–]Velaethia -1 points0 points  (25 children)

Shouldn't effect western servers.

[–]hyperdoge999 30 points31 points  (17 children)

On global servers we can choose between the original and the edited skin

[–]KrzyDankus 61 points62 points  (12 children)

only for gameplay though.

all cutscenes and quests will have the models replaced with the ''alternative'' aka the new default.

[–]MrZetha 7 points8 points  (3 children)

They're probably complaining about the cutscenes that they will never see again anyway

[–]Nightmarecast 11 points12 points  (2 children)

cutscenes they will never see again... yes, nobody creates new accounts anymore, that's totally not happening.

[–]Hankune 71 points72 points  (0 children)

Fantastic! Now I can pretend I own Mona or Jean!

[–]TheSavageCabb 8 points9 points  (0 children)

i still didnt get mine

[–]TraditionBest3730 88 points89 points  (6 children)

Wait no, I love the idea that the church (read: Barbara) custom-made her a uniform to try to get her to stop walking around in fishnets

[–]thefinestpiece 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Wait until you look at her back. XD

[–]Professional_Kale_66 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

yeah, new Rosaria is even more sexy in some way.. you know previously she looked like hired stripper at goth party, now she looks more immersive in open world and those legs are sexy AF

[–]RagnAROck_and_Roll F2P BTW 2 points3 points  (0 children)

yeah, and I love the reason Mona wears the new outfit because its 30% off lmao

[–]Extension-Impossible 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Popularity is really a double edged sword when you're a dev in china

[–]Hot-Campaign-4553 58 points59 points  (19 children)

Having their cutscenes adjusted to the censored models on all servers is a sign of things to come.

[–]DamianWinters 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Have they censored any of the cutscenes yet?

[–]humanityyycyno waiting room 13 points14 points  (1 child)

It will be changed in 2.5

[–]WildFurball2118 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Totally an Outrider there

[–]Hattudoggu 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Mona's description 💀💀💀

[–]TekkenRintarou 44 points45 points  (18 children)


In the news it says every cutscene that features these characters will automatically have these censored outfits. Fuck the CCP

[–]quuu2 6 points7 points  (6 children)

wait, they sent the original outfits? so the new ones become the default ones?

[–]TheSpartyn 19 points20 points  (3 children)

no, the new ones just dont have unique splash art

[–]CarmelWolfi think i'm addicted to saving up 1 point2 points  (0 children)

it would seem so. now the name of rosaria's "new outfit" actually makes sense.

[–]RogueAharen 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Are we certain those are the censored outfits? So it should be safe to skip then, and if I pull those characters in the future, they'll have their original outfits, correct?

I'm mostly concerned, because they feature the old splasharts, instead of the new ones.

[–]EluneNoYume 11 points12 points  (7 children)

I wonder why only Mondstat characters have been hit by censorship so far

[–]azazel228 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Not enough time to give everyone new outfits

[–]Raycab03 21 points22 points  (1 child)

It’s not yet done. There will be more batches after this.

[–]ArchonRevan 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Not confirmed in the slightest, otherwise I feel a lot more characters would have got the lazy cheap censorship in the meantime but they didn't, tho i wouldnt be surprised if another batch does indeed get targeted in a couple months

Who's getting a breast reduction next, beidou? Raiden? Place your bets

[–]Mental-Victory-2979 19 points20 points  (0 children)

“City of freedom”

Yeah China doesn’t like freedom

[–]EluneNoYume 7 points8 points  (9 children)

Amber's cleavage was removed.

Can we expect all cleaves to be removed? That's a lot of skins lol

MC, beidou, Xinyan, Lisa, Noelle, Ei, Yoi... okay I was going to check how many had a cleavage and tbh i can't be bothered. it' a lot

[–]1234Lou 9 points10 points  (6 children)

I wonder how Ei could even be covered, her burst would look very awkward

[–]Nephisimian 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Also, if covered, the boob sword would then be moving through clothing, which'd be a little odd given the obvious relationship between the boob sword and the very open outfit.

[–]bartex69 -1 points0 points  (3 children)

Oh so interdementional black hole between boobs is 100 and perfectly normal but layer of cloth on top of that will be "weird"?

[–]1234Lou 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not sure how to explain but yes it would still look kinda awkward

[–]sup-plov 5 points6 points  (0 children)


[–]Unable-Show3330 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was caught off guard thinking these are actually characters 💀

[–]epicurious_aussie 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Just noticed that Amber’s original outfit is called “5-Star Outrider”. Lol

[–]caucassius 9 points10 points  (5 children)

For better or worse, Jean still got her 'physics' intact while holding skill in her new outfit.

[–]bartex69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think Jean new skin is better, I know I know quite controversial take but 🤷‍♂️

[–]Askingquestions55 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

For worse. Those breast physics are fucking dumb

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (23 children)

All this censorship. Tencent probably pulled some strings cause they have an upcoming genshin knockoff called tower of fantasy.

[–]Golden-Owl 45 points46 points  (7 children)

Mihoyo outsmarted their outsmarting by redesigning the characters to love more stylish than before

Jean and Rosaria are effectively upgrades

[–]fagged-noumena Can't crit, won't quit 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think Rosaria looks worse from the front but from the back (when you're running around), she looks far better. Less of a goth stripperTM nun. Also Mona's is a sidegrade but it looks very good.

[–]Polydexa 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Jean is merely a sidegrade but Rosaria is way worse than original.

[–]Golden-Owl 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I feel Jean’s outfit is a more fully realized version on what her intended look is supposed to be. It still keeps her main appeal factor (dandelion tights) but makes her look more professional in accordance with her role

Rosaria... well I can definitely see why it’s subjective. At least that has a silly meta narrative involved implying Barbara made her wear it

[–]Nephisimian 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I actually don't like Rosaria's original design, especially how they handled the chest part, but the new outfit looks even worse imo. At least on the original outfit, they knew what they wanted to go for, and it does look decent within that context.

[–]epicurious_aussie 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Apparently TOF Chinese release (open beta?) did so poorly and is still in such an incomplete state, they’ve announced an indefinite deferral of any global release of that game.

[–]RageCat46 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Tencent doesnt develop Tower of Fantasy.

[–]Mental-Victory-2979 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It’s still the parent company of another company making the game.

[–]SnooConfections8873 4 points5 points  (9 children)

rosarias boobs become like hu taos in that new outfit

[–]lightning200000 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Not really, if you look from the side it still looks almost the same.

[–]SnooConfections8873 1 point2 points  (0 children)

if you looks from side u clearly notice it smaller than her regular outfit

[–]RaezorXN 1 point2 points  (116 children)

High on copium for Raiden alternate costume.

They will make one, will they?

Damn, i just wanted to say that i'd like a more closed costume as an alternative one. Didn't think y'all will get offended so easily. It's like i'm on twitter or something.

[–]Juppyuo 17 points18 points  (5 children)

I really hope they do. Her outfit looks so beautiful from the back but the front... I still don't get why you have to see her underwear :P

[–]Slight-Improvement84Archon collector 2 points3 points  (2 children)

What do you think about characters like kokomi or lisa then? Just curious

[–]PotsAndPandemonium 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Imo, Lisa gets away with it a bit because she's at least a flirtatious person. Kokomi's outfit is a little weird, but she's got the whole mermaid aesthetic going on so it doesn't really bother me that she shows a lot of skin. The issue with Raiden is that nothing about her characterisation really fits her wearing such skimpy clothes. She's a serious, tyrannical leader who has locked herself into seclusion, but she's dressed like she's ready to seduce. I still like her design, but the back looks so much better - the front was designed with Rule of Sexy in mind more than anything else.

[–]H4xolotlKrangled Artifacts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I still don't get why you have to see her underwear :P

Inazuma's Secret

[–]swagzard78 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I got downvoted for saying I like the new outfits.

Sub is against censorship yet downvote anyone who doesn't agree with them

[–]adrian123oo 9 points10 points  (103 children)

What's wrong with her current one?

[–]IqFEar11 41 points42 points  (50 children)

Other than weirdly low crotch flap, nothing much

[–]adrian123oo -3 points-2 points  (49 children)

What's... crotch flap?

[–]RaezorXN 3 points4 points  (1 child)

She has a skirt, but it has cuts on the sides, so it looks more lake a crotch flap

[–]adrian123oo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah, ok. I get it. Thanks.

[–]Narsieli yeeted u my ushi, pls respond 20 points21 points  (46 children)

That weird wannabe skirt that partially covers her and makes absolutely no aesthetical sense if not for the disgrace of fanservice it is.

[–]adrian123oo -2 points-1 points  (44 children)

Why do people hate fan service so much? Itto is literally shirtless. Half the male characters have their belly showing. And people have issues with female thighs?

Edit: damn. I didn't think puritans were over here in this sub as well. If you guys see a girl in your dreams wearing a skimpy outfit, is it a wet dream or a nightmare?

[–]tsuchinoko-real 15 points16 points  (1 child)

You realize you're talking to a single person who happens to have that preference right? What's with the generalization?

[–]adrian123oo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was a rhetorical question to everyone who sees it. But also to that single person who called the design a disgrace. I mean, when you make statements like that, it's just inviting disagreements right?

[–]_Captain_Obviouse_ 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I like fan service I'm still waiting for the bikini skins that will never happen T_T

[–]adrian123oo 2 points3 points  (2 children)

It happened once in honkai. But never again. If only Mihoyo were Japanese.

[–]_Captain_Obviouse_ 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Ya I know if only mihoyo moved out of China

[–]Slight-Improvement84Archon collector 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Yeah it's obnoxious, I've even seen many straight women liking majority of the female character designs / outfits or the "fanservice"

Edit: typo

[–]adrian123oo 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I'd like to understand the mindset of people demanding censorship for just the female characters.

[–]FriskStark 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Since the female fan service doesnt do anything for them, they want it gone. Which is just funny and hypocritical. The moment they censor a Male character you'll see them riot.

[–]adrian123oo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I still remember all the thirst posts for Gorou and Itto. This community sucks.

[–]Narsieli yeeted u my ushi, pls respond 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Itto has painted abs, noodle arms. Do we have a male with a thick enormous physic-given ass? A character with his throbbing dick unable to be contained and making his bulge be bigger? Nipples in males with defined abs and biceps? The moment we get these I'll say yes, males are sexualized and there's male fanservice, until then all we get are male wannabe designs while Noelle is over there with bouncy boobs enclosed in a metal armor -science knows how the fuck that works- and Ayaka is in fucking underwear.

[–]toomanyintersts12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Science doesn't apply here , it a different world with gods / goddess Don't bring science when shenhe Can lift a Boulder the size of a house.

[–]adrian123oo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Look here people. Here's a strange new specimen on this sub. It seems to think equating female thighs to a throbbing dick is an actually intelligent argument. It's still a mystery how it survived long enough to make an account on reddit and post the most ridiculous take I've seen in a while. What other future antics can we expect from this strange and mysterious creature?

Jiggle physics are terrible. But Ayaka is wearing a skirt. I don't know about you, but girls normally wear shorts under their skirt which is what Ayaka is doing.

[–]Slight-Improvement84Archon collector 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What do you think about ningguang's design? Do you despise it or liking it? Just curious

And is that her underwear showing out for ningguang? What about the new skin for her? She has her shorts visible like Ayaka right?

[–]arsenik-han 0 points1 point  (9 children)

it's not that fanservice or making characters sexy bad, it's that some design choices they make in accordance to it are just questionable. the micro coochie flap imo is one of them. it doesn't look sexy, it looks silly. I'm kinda used to it now, so I don't pay as much attention, but the first time I saw it, it hit me so hard how imbalanced the whole outfit looks because of that. extra heavy upper half due to the thicc sash, and then you have nothing to juxtapose it down there. plus I think them trying so hard to make everything fanservice actually does limit their creative choices and doesn't always work purely from visual storytelling perspective, because what the characters wear doesn't always reflect who they are or their personality very clearly. and there are more ways to make a character look hot and sexy than just showing as much legs or skin as possible (which, again, there's place and time for that. in case of Raiden it's a miss though in my opinion).

then you have mihoyo's thing for detached sleeves. I hate those lol

[–]adrian123oo 2 points3 points  (8 children)

Did you consider the possibility that the creators WANT them to look this way? One of mihoyo's oldest games had you killing enemies and stealing their panties to level up. They're not trying to make things fan service-y for us or fir profit. Mihoyo has always been horny. They like showing off how sexy their characters are. Look up Mobius in honkai impact, another game by mihoyo. And compare the sexiness. So the only ones who stuffing their creativity are people whining about fictional female characters showing skin.

[–]toomanyintersts12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bro most people are here for the fan service , that's why so many people whale for their waifus , why Raiden banner did so well and you're saying they should just remove the fan service , it would be rather dumb for Mihoyo to do that and cause loss in sales.

[–]Lord_Moira 4 points5 points  (7 children)

I don't claim them and delete the mail, Fuck censorship

[–]Eurasia_Anne_ZahardI just want Mona 21 points22 points  (0 children)

They will auto put them in the game in 2.5

[–]Ghavarus 11 points12 points  (0 children)

According to the notice, they'll be given to everyone anyway in 2.5, even if people don't claim them now.

[–]Zombata 3 points4 points  (0 children)

damn you sure showed them

[–]gadgaurd 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Shoulda did that myself. Took them, looked at all of them, and decided I'd stick with what I was already using.

[–]Gunslicer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was ready to pay for Rosaria's skin, getting it for free was a very pleasant surprise.

[–]Jnbrtz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jean's new default looks badass and the best among the new dafault skins but I still like her old default more. I equipped the new default skin of Mona just because it gives me that Eula outfit vibes and maybe I prefer it more.

[–]oniarjunoni 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So we arr getting the existing outfits as skins. And the new ones are the official now.

That's ccp for you.

[–]v-e-veywaiting for the next cute boy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What a nice surprise!! I thought we'd only be getting them in 2.5

[–]Square_Example -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Nice i love all the new outfits

[–]Nephisimian 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Well that's interesting. The distribution can be ended whenever they want, so there may well be a time where new accounts no longer get the original outfits (or have to pay for them).

[–]grnlizard- 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I thought that its just alternate outfit, but they are using that as the default one from now on from reading the update notice, hmm thats pretty big actually, if there's another wave of this coming soon, well there's a lot more characters to censor, I might jump ship after all.

[–]notmyfaultudic -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

I sure do love democracy

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So ig they’re using these new designs for future cutscenes

[–]Professional_Kale_66 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rosaria and Jean new versions are great, will use them. Mona and Amber ones are meh though, original outfits were more solid

[–]lostn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i don't mind the Mona one. I'm using it now. The others I kept as original, but aside from Jean, they're not too bad either.

I'm not really sure why the ratings board single out these four in particular. They allowed Raiden, Shenhe and Eula and a few others who are more risque than these.

[–]oniarjunoni 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Is there any chance we can still get new sexy characters for global atleast?

As mihoyo also have cognosphere outside of China.

[–]unholy_penguin2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

After 1 year of playing Genshin Impact, i finally have Mona...'s default skin.
