Genshin Impact’s 2.3 update launches later this month
Genshin Impact’s next major update, Shadows Amidst Snowstorms, is set to launch on November 24th, miHoYo has announced.
Update 2.3 will feature two character banners, with the first featuring a re-run of Albedo and Eula, while the second features the new characters Arataki Itto and Gorou.
Arataki Itto is a five-star claymore-wielding Geo user who “can slash empowered Charged Attacks with his unique Superlative Superstrength and transform himself into the Raging Oni King.” Joining him is Gorou, a four-star Geo user who uses a bow and can “provide more buffs to characters on the field with more Geo characters in the party.”
Also coming in 2.3 is a new seasonal event that will see players taking part in a series of agility, tracking, and combat training challenges in Dragonspire with Albedo, Eula, and other old acquaintances. The rewards for this event include the 4-star Sword, Cinnabar Spindle. Another event on the way involves players investigating the recent mass disappearances of small animals and a mysterious Warrior Dog to get a special gadget that adds creatures to the Serenitea Pot.
Finally, a new boss fight against the Golden Wolflord will be added. This boss is a more dangerous form of the Rifthounds and Rifthound Whelps and can also apply corrosion to characters that slowly drains their HP.
Genshin Impact is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, and mobile.
