Sometimes after new Genshin Impact story quests or events, HoYoVerse will share videos of important scenes. Well, another one has appeared. This time, the Genshin Impact Perilous Trail video features spoilers regarding actions Xiao takes at the end of the quest. It appears at the very end of the questline, so those who haven’t completed it yet might want to hold off on watching it.
Editor’s Note: The new Genshin Impact video features spoilers regarding things Xiao does during the story in the Perilous Trail Archon Quest.
Things in this video happen right as Xiao is about to help everyone escape the deepest part of The Chasm. After Yelan activates the device, Xiao channels his power into it to act as something of an elevator and get everyone to safety. As he does, the fallen souls of soldiers from 500 years ago attempt to maintain their promise to let nothing escape The Chasm.
As that happens, there’s a Genshin Impact story scene hinting at what Xiao did before the Perilous Trail quest began. In it, he’s meeting with Zhongli to discuss his reasons for visiting The Chasm and get approval to do so. Zhongli warns him about the danger. Due to things seeming dangerous, Xiao uses what is left of his power to send the group to the surface and safety. As he falls back into the abyss, Zhongli appears to save him as well. Everyone reunites in Liyue, while Zhongli watches.
This is the second Perilous Trail video to appear. The first one featured spoilers regarding the Yaksha in Genshin Impact.
Genshin Impact is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and mobile devices. A Nintendo Switch version is in development.
