miHoYo has recently shared the newest details of Genshin Impact version 2.3 with the new banners, new mechanics, newest characters, and more.
Version 2.3 “Shadows Amidst Snowstorms” will be arriving on November 24, 2021. Players will be put to the test with their adventuring skills as they venture Dragonspine once again to face a series of challenges. Another adventure they will face is investigating the disturbing mass disappearance of small animals in Inazuma and lastly, the two new playable characters Arataki Itto and Gorou.
This upcoming update will offer a series of new events that will have rich rewards and intriguing stories. The main season event will be “Shadows Amidst Snowstorms,” which will bring adventurers to Dragonspine once again. Players will be joining Albedo, Eula, and other old friends and will have to endure the Sheer Cold effect. They will have to complete the agility, tracking, and combat training challenges to earn bountiful rewards like the new 4-star Sword called Cinnabar Spindle and create their own Puffy Snowmen.
Another event in Inazuma will also take place where players will be paired up with a mysterious Warrior Dog to investigate the mass disappearances of small animals. They will have to rescue to lost critters and obtain a special Gadget that can replicate forms of some creatures in the Serenitea Pot.
More playable characters will be joining the upcoming update. Both Eula and Albedo will have their own Wish Events as a rerun at the same time and will be followed by another Wish Event that will feature the two new playable characters Arataki Itto and Gorou. Itto is a man with Oni blood running through his veins, uses a giant Claymore and the power of Geo. He can slash empowered Charged Attacks with his unique Superlative Superstrength and transform himself into the Raging Oni King. This buffs his attacks while lowering Elemental and Physical Resistance. Gorou uses a Geo Vision and uses a bow as a weapon. He is a general of the Watasumi Island forces and can provide buffs to characters on the field with more Geo characters in the party.
The Golden Wolflord has appeared as the new boss in Tsurumi Island. It is more dangerous than his subordinates, the Rifthounds and Rifthound Whelps. It has the same ability to apply Corrosion status that lowers the HP of all party members. It can summon Rifthound Skulls to shield itself and at a later stage he can further increase its Attack at the cost of lowering its Resistance to Geo attacks.
Genshin Impact is now available on PS4, PS5, PC, Android, and iOS. Version 2.3 launches on November 24, 2021.
