Genshin Impact 2.4 update: What to expect?
Are you looking for more information on the Genshin Impact 2.4 update? Although it doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that we released version 2.3, you may be wondering what to anticipate when you log in to Teyvat in the coming days.
New playable characters and banner re-runs for a couple of the older heroes are expected, as is customary. A new zone to explore in the Inazuma region, as well as a new Archon quest, will be included in the forthcoming release. If you’re interested in learning more, here’s what we know about the Genshin Impact 2.4 update and when it will be released.
When is the Genshin Impact 2.4 release date?
On January 5, Genshin Impact 2.4 will be released. On the same day, the new banners will go live, offering you the opportunity to wish for Xiao, Shenhe, or Yun Jin.
Genshin Impact 2.4 characters
During the 2.4 updates, two new playable characters are added, as well as two characters that return with banner re-runs. The first two banners will be available at the same time as the January 5 update, with the third banner arriving in the second part of 2.4. You can expect to see the following characters:
Shenhe: The Cloud Retainer has accepted this five-star Cryo polearm bearer as a disciple. You can make a wish for her alongside Yun Jin, Ningguang, and Chongyun during the banner ‘The Transcendent One Returns.’
Yun Jin: The Yun-Han Opera Troupe director in Liyue is another polearm user, this four-star Geo hero. During Shenhe’s banner ‘The Transcendent One Returns’ and Xiao’s ‘Invitation to Mundane Life’ wish events, you can make a wish for her.
Xiao: This five-star Anemo character wields a polearm as well, and he’s been around from the beginning (nearly). On January 5, his banner ‘Invitation to Mundane Life’ will be available with the 2.4 updates. Yun Jin, Ningguang, and Chongyun can all be obtained via the same event wish.
Ganyu: This five-star Cryo character wields a bow, which sets her apart from the rest of the cast. Ganyu, the Secretary to the Liyue Qixing, first appeared in January 2021 as a playable character. If you want her for your squad, her banner ‘Adrift in the Harbor’ will be available in the second half of version 2.4, around the end of the month. Her event wish also includes Xingqiu, Beidou, and Yanfei.
Genshin Impact 2.4: New area, Enkanomiya
We’ll be sticking in Inazuma for the 2.4 updates, but there’s a whole new zone within the region to discover. In the trailer above, you can get a quick glance at the location.
To unlock the new region, you must reach Adventure Rank 30 and have finished the Archon quest ‘Chapter 2: Act 3: Omnipresence Over Mortals’ as well as the global quests ‘The Still Water’s Flow’ and ‘The Moon-Bathed Deep.’
