An old leak revealed that the 3.6 update will have location expansion with Chenyu Vale being available to play. This area is expected to have a lot of mountains and streams.

What is unsure is the size of the new area. The expanse of the area will only be revealed once the update rolls out. In addition to this, where the area is situated will also be revealed later on.

A very recent leak also suggested that a new world boss might also make its way into the new update. The video demonstrates how the world dictator may manipulate and control many factors to his advantage. To breach the boss’ shield, players will probably need to alter their team composition among other factors.

Readers are expected to take all of these hints with a grain of salt since all of these are just leaks. All of the details will be revealed in a few weeks.
