Along with the information that has been revealed in the game, it seems that Fontaine will be a land that brings completely new experiences to players.
Genshin Impact, HoYoverse’s gacha role-playing game, has been steadily expanding since its launch in 2020. Players can now explore four of the seven countries in the Tevyat world, with Fontaine’s fifth country going. to the next Genshin Impact.
While players haven’t had a chance to visit Fontaine themselves, there have been plenty of hints about the new area in chats, item descriptions, and lore. Putting this scattered information together, it’s easy to see that Fontaine could be completely different from anything Genshin Impact players have seen so far.
Fontaine’s Culture, Art and Beauty
One of the first things players learn about Fontaine is that its inhabitants pride themselves on their dedication to beauty, art and luxury. Francis, the Fontaine merchant who can be found in the port of Liyue, may be a huge fan of Liyue’s cooking, but openly declares that no country can match Fontaine in style.
The people of Fontaine favor intricate clothing inspired by French fashion and the decadence of the courts of Versailles, and a few leaked images of playable Fontaine characters suggest a completely different style. with Mondstadt clothing of late medieval Germany, or of feudal China. Japanese clothes are found in Liyue and Inazuma respectively. Francis argues that while other countries may find Fontaine fashion garish and impractical, that is just normal for their own people. The headgear, corset, and long coat suggest a style that’s also inspired by the Victorian era, hinting that Fontaine may be far more technologically advanced than any other area in Genshin Impact.
Technology in Fontaine
Fontaine’s next defining characteristic, and the one most likely to give a completely different feel to Mondstadt, Liyue, Inazuma and Sumeru, is its cutting edge technology. Based on hints of existing lore in the game, Fontaine is undergoing an Industrial Revolution fueled by sci-fi-style mechanical technology. Some of the most advanced pieces of equipment that players can discover or hear about during their travels are crafted by Fontaine engineers, including Mikage Forge, toymaker Bertrand’s robotic toys and Eternal Machine Painting system. The player can talk to Bertrand in Liyue to discover that Fontaine even has a nationwide power system, similar to the modern grid, although no details have been released about it so far. the way it works.

It’s clear that Fontaine’s technological prowess will not only feel very different from the existing areas of Genshin Impact, but will also feature heavily in the main storyline. Opposing concepts of progress and preservation were explored in the Inazuma storyline, and players can expect to find Fontaine an area that focuses more on the future than the past.
Justice at Fontaine
Each nation of Tevyat is protected by a Magic God, a god representing one of the game’s seven elements, who act according to their divine ideals. Fontaine’s god is Focalors, who represent the element of Water and hold the ideal of Justice. Although little is known about Focalors, it is clear that Justice is extremely important to Fontaine’s society and the country has an extremely complex legal system. The Court of Focalors is a literal courtroom where the Water God and her court make judgments against both lawbreakers and Fontaine’s enemies. According to Dainsleif, Justice considers her right, privilege, and duty to judge other gods, holding them accountable for their crimes.
This country of court and ruling will be a very different place for players to navigate and will likely share a closer kinship with Liyue, the nation of the Covenant, than the freedom-loving Mondstadt. It seems inevitable that Genshin Impact’s Fontaine storyline will involve its justice system, and rumors spread by the traveling merchant Liben reveal that the nation’s people are currently divided and oppression, waiting for a great judgment to come.
