MiHoYo has announced that Genshin Impact’s next major update will be released on July 21st. This will bring Genshin Impact to version 2.0 and it comes with the title “The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia”. In version 2.0 players will be able to head to the new city of Inazuma which is composed of six islands and surrounded by the sea on all sides. In the area the Electro element is the most dominant with frequent storms impacting the region.
Here is more from miHoYo regarding the new characters that Genshin Impact players will have access to.
Among the various new characters of Inazuma, Version 2.0 will introduce three of them as new playable characters. Kamisato Ayaka, the daughter of the Yashiro Commission’s Kamisato Clan, is often conceived as dignified, elegant, wise, and strong by the locals. She has been familiar to many fans and players since closed beta testing, and will be added as a five-star Cryo sword user. Yoimiya is the other five-star character joining in Version 2.0. She’s a Pyro archer and an expert in fireworks. Known as the “Queen of the Summer Festival,” Yoimiya excels in her craft of creating fireworks that symbolize people’s hopes and dreams. The last character, Sayu is a new four-star ninja character who wields an Anemo Visionanda giant claymore bigger than herself.
Version 2.0 of Genshin Impact will also bring the cross save feature that will allow players to continue their adventure across PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile. There will be new boss enemies to deal with as well in Inazuma. These bosses will be the Pyro Hypostasis, and the Perpetual Mechanical Array which has links to the Mondstandt and Liyue Ruin Guards. Maguu Kenki, from update 1.6, will also be a world boss in Inazuma so players can get level up items in that battle.
