HoYoverse announced Genshin Impact 2.8 “Summer Fantasia” coming this July 13, 2022. In this update, the Golden Apple Archipelago will welcome you with brand-new areas, engaging stories, intriguing puzzles, and treasures.
Furthermore, this update will start the big Summertime Odyssey seasonal event in the company of Fischl, Xinyan, Kaedahara Kazuha, and Mona. Those who experience these thrilling adventures may then have a chance to recruit the four-star playable character Fischl for free.
The Golden Apple Archipelago also brings you refreshing island recreations whether players journey solo or with friends. During the “resonating Visions” event, you may collect special conches that are carrying tales and messages and you can also redeem Fischl’s new outfit.
In addition, with the latest co-op event “Reminiscent Regimen” you and other players will be able to set sail and complete challenges at sea.
Kaedehara Kazuha and the new playable four-star Shikanoin Heizou will be receiving events and stories of their own. Diluc will get a new outfit in the “Hidden Strife” event alongside its back story.
Meanwhile, Kaedehara Kazuha will also reveal more about himself in the first chapter of his Story Quest opening soon. His friend, Shikanoin Heizou, a genius crime solver, will also premiere in Version 2.8 and you will be able to join Heizou and become a detective for a day in his Hangout Event.
In combat, Shikanoin Heizou is noteworthy for being the first melee catalyst user in the game. He can deal Anemo damage with powerful strikes and kicks, and he can even cause extra elemental damage to enemies affected by Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro.
Heizou will be available in the Event Wishes of Kaedehara Kazuha’s and Klee’s rerun in the early phase of Version 2.8. Yoimiya’s Event Wish will be available in the later phase of the update.
Genshin Impact Version 2.8 will be arriving on July 13. With cross-save and cross-play, you can enjoy their adventure across PlayStation, PC, Android, and iOS.
