The Natlan teaser showcased four new monsters, named Saurians, in Genshin Impact. Here is a detailed look at all the new enemies showcased in the teaser:

  • The first monster revealed, a mixture of a groundhog and porcupine, had an armored body with spiky dark shells at the back. This monster walked on two legs, and could travel while burrowed underground while leaving a trail of spiked rocks.
  • Next we saw a fish type monster, which looked similar to a stingray, and could swim in both water and lava.
  • The third monster showcased, similar to a squirrel, could shoot its tongue to grab objects and also use it to grapple from place to place.
  • The final monster revealed was bird type that flew around Natlan’s landscape.
  • Genshin Impact Rocky Saurian Natlan Monster
  • Genshin Impact Natlan Green Saurian Natlan Monster
  • Genshin Impact Water Saurian monster Natlan

The biggest part about the monsters revealed was that some of them was showcased from a player’s point of view. It appeared as some of these monsters could be mounts and used to traverse the landscapes of Natlan in Genshin Impact. We did see some leaks about a new travel mechanic introduced in Natlan, which might just be mounts. But it’s just a wild speculation, so don’t quote me on it.

Natlan Landscapes and Traversal

The trailer also showcased some of Natlan’s landscape and it appeared to be a combination of rocky mountains, green forests, rivers, and lava. We also got a quick look at the structure that appeared like a city, attached at the side of a cliff.

Other than the Natlan landscape, we also saw a few new traversal mechanics probably getting added in Genshin Impact.

  • First, we saw that monsters can swim through lava, so there might be a way for players to also do that.
  • Next, we see a rainbow colored stream going upwards from the lava, which monsters could also traverse though.

  • Finally, we saw a grappling mechanic, which is starting to be more common in every new area of Genshin Impact.

One new thing about the grappling mechanic is that we see the green saurian using it to travel, which again reinforces the possibility of mounts or a similar feature in the Natlan update.

So, that’s it. Share your thoughts about the Genshin Impact Natlan teaser. Also, share your opinions on the upcoming Genshin Impact 4.7 version, which will add a ton of new things to the game.
