Genshin Impact, the open-world action RPG from miHoYo, was showcased in a new digital event this Friday (18) that revealed the contents of version 2.6, scheduled for March 30. Highlights include new five-star character Kamisato Ayato and a map expansion from Liyue called Crag, which will set the stage for a new Archon Quest featuring Dainsleif and deepening the story of the traveling twins.
According to the company, Ayato’s banner will be the first of the new version of Genshin Impact and will be available from March 30. Players will also have the option to recruit Venti and Ayaka in this new version. In addition to being the head of Inazuma’s Yashiro Commission, Ayato is a swordsman and wielder of a Hydro Vision, which grants hydraulic powers. It is capable of inflicting massive splash damage for a short period of time, while also being great for triggering elemental reactions and boosting the effects of normal team attacks.
In turn, the cliff is a new explorable area of the Liyue map that promises players plenty of challenges. According to the official description, the site, which serves as the main source of minerals in the region, was closed due to a series of accidents and is now full of monsters. Players must use an item called Glimmerstone Conduit to light the way, as the location is in darkness. Along with introducing a new boss called Ruins Serpent, the Crag holds rewards like a four-star prototype weapon and a new calling card.
