    Overview

    “The coming update will start the big Summertime Odyssey seasonal event in the company of Fischl, Xinyan, Kaedahara Kazuha and Mona. The Golden Apple Archipelago has undergone a drastic makeover, adding new realms, extensive exploration gameplay, more treasure chest, and unexpected storylines about the Traveler’s companions. 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 offers refreshing island recreations whether players journey solo or with friends. During the “Resonating Visions” event, players may collect special conches carrying tales and messages, and redeem Fischl’s new outfit. With the latest co-op event “Reminiscent Regimen,” players can set sail with friends together and complete various challenges at sea.

    Meanwhile on land, Diluc, Kaedehara Kazuha, and the new playable four-star Shikanoin Heizou will receive events and stories of their own. Diluc will receive a new outfit featuring a distinctive look, new idle animation, and new effects, available in-store at a limited-time discount. The outfit also carries its back story that can be found in the “Hidden Strife” challenge event. Another character Kaedehara Kazuha is also ready to reveal more about himself with the first chapter of his Story Quest opening soon. Besides, his friend Shikanoin Heizou, a young genius crime solver for the Tenryou Commission, will premiere in Version 2.8. And players are welcome to join Heizou in being 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 Ameno 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 is available now for PS4, PS5, iOS, Android, and PC. Lastly, a Switch version is currently in development.
