The free-to-play RPG success from Chinese developer miHoYo has been a global – and cultural – phenomenon, and it’s just gotten even better. The latest update welcomes the new Reputation system, which is sure to impress Genshin Impact fans more than ever.

The system will give you different standings to unlock across both the Liyue and Mondstadt areas. Completing quests as you normally will now increases your standing, allowing you to earn rewards simply for doing pretty much what you were doing before the update anyway. Depending on where you sit in the Reputation system, you’ll be rewarded with everything from gadget recipes to gliders, and there’s even new unlockable features in the cities.
