Yesterday there was an official stream on update 2.7 for Genshin Impact, in which the HoYoverse team revealed a ton of information about new content. Recall that the patch will be released on May 31, and its duration will be only 6 weeks. Then version 2.8 will be released on July 13th.
As previously stated by insiders, the first phase of the update will introduce a double banner with a new 5-star heroine Ye Lan and Xiao. The latter was chosen due to the fact that the storyline of the upcoming update will be associated with it. At the second stage, it is planned to rerun Arataki Itto. He will be accompanied by the new 4-star character Kuki Shinobu, for whom the first chapter of the Meeting was prepared.
The developers plan to add Ye Lan’s legends quest and a new Archon mission. The events of both quests will unfold in the Underground Shaft Mines. There will also be a large-scale event “Dangerous Path” with its own storyline. In addition to it, other events will be organized: “Hell in Adventure”, “Forge of Machinery” and “The Grand Drum Festival of the Magnificent Arataki”.
As for weapons, players will be able to get two new bows: Aqua Simulacrum (5-star) and Fading Twilight (4-star). The latter will be a reward for completing the main update event. More information about version 2.7 can be found in our separate article.
