Genshin Impact is skipping update 1.7 and is going straight to 2.0. Mihoyo has revealed what’s coming our way in a new livestream that’s come packed with details on a fresh region, new characters, and what looks like a new power for the Traveller. We also found out that the Genshin Impact 2.0 release date is July 21, so you don’t have too long to wait.
So what does this swanky new update come with? After a few teases and oodles of leaks, we now know that, yes, we are indeed heading to Inazuma. The Electro Archon rules over the new region, so lightning is a theme for the latest slice of land. We can also see an Archon statue during the trailer and in heaps of promotional images, so it looks like the Traveller will soon be able to use the power of electricity. Twitter channel Project Celestia has also dug up the Constellations for the Electro Traveller, though they are subject to change.
While Inazuma is one region, though, it’s made up of several islands. Another Twitter channel called GenshinReport shares that the 2.0 update will introduce three of Inazuma’s six islands, with the rest of them opening up as time rumbles on.
