miHoYo has announced that the latest update for Genshin Impact, which will see a new area in Enkanomiya along with 2 new playable characters in Shenhe and Yun Jin, will be making its way to players on January 5.
Genshin Impact v2.4 New Area
The v2.4 update entitled “Fleeting Colors in Flight” will play host to Liyue’s biggest annual festival, the Lantern Rite, which will once again bring valuable rewards to players, along with the chance to obtain a free four-star Liyue character. This first Genshin Impact update of 2022 will unveil Enkanomiya, the remains of an underwater nation that has been sealed away for thousands of years beneath Inazuma.
Unlike the other islands in Inazuma, Enkanomiya is a huge floating island located beneath the ocean, constantly eroded by the Abyss. Ancestors of the people of Watatsumi Island once lived there, leaving the ruins of an ancient civilization that are older than any other relics found on land. Without day and night underground, players will find a way to use Dainichi Mikoshi, the artificial sun developed by the ancient civilization, as they delve into the puzzles and depths of Enkanomiya.
Genshin Impact v2.4 New Characters
Players will get to acquire the services of 2 new powerful Polearm characters that can level the playing field against the fiends in the region. Shenhe is a reliable cryo character that can increase the Cryo damage dealt by her teammates, while Yun Jin can buff her teammates’ Normal Attacks based on her Defense and the variety of Visions in the player’s party. Players may also recruit Xiao, Ganyu, and Zhongli again in their own Event Wishes during the upcoming version.
Genshin Impact v2.4 Special Events And New Outfits
Additionally, there will also be a special Genshin Impact web event – “Enchanting Journey of Snow” – along with new “Swirling Hues” outfits for both Ningguang and Keqing. Ningguang’s new outfit Orchid’s Evening Gown can be obtained in the latest seasonal events while Keqing’s new outfit Opulent Splendor will also be on sale with a limited-time discount.
Genshin Impact v2.4 update “Fleeting Colors in Flight” will be available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and Mobile users on January 5, 2022.
