Here, then, are the banners and release date for the upcoming version 2.8 of Genshin Impact, along with any other information you might need to prepare for the new patch.
Genshin Impact 2.8: Release Date, Trailer, Banners, and More
The main event of this new version, titled Summertime Odyssey, will take players back to The Golden Apple Archipelago, where they will find not only new quests, treasures, and challenges, but also a new storyline starring Xinyan, Fischl, Kazuha, and Mona. There will be four distinct phases to the event, each with its own set of rules and rewards. See the main trailer for Genshin Impact 2.8 down below:
New Stories for Kazuha and Diluc
The Special Program and a post on the Official PlayStation Blog both state that Kazuha’s first Story Quest will be available in version 2.8, along with everything else mentioned above.
There will be a new storyline starring Diluc in the upcoming update, and it will be showcased during the Hidden Strife challenge event, where players can also try out his new skin in battle.
Genshin Impact 2.8: Who will Star on the Version’s Banners?
When Genshin Impact 2.8 is released, it will have the standard two waves of advertising banners. Thus, beginning on July 13th, Kaedehara Kazuha and Klee will be featured in a series of banner ads. Shikanoin Heizou, the new 4-star character, will be featured alongside the other 4-stars on both the Kazuha and Klee banners. However, Inazuma’s top pyrotechnician, Yoimiya, will be featured in the next set of banners. It will be Yoimiya’s first return, just like it was for Kazuha.
When Will Genshin Impact 2.8 Release?
On July 13, 2022, Genshin Impact 2.8 will release. However, don’t forget to install the patch on PC or mobile devices before the new version goes live so you can jump right in when it releases.
