During the recently concluded v2.6 special program, miHoYo revealed that the next update for Genshin Impact entitled “Zephyr of the Violet Garden” is launching on March 30, 2022 for the PS4, PS5, PC, and Mobile devices.
In this update, players will be able to explore a brand-new area called The Chasm, which is located at the westernmost part of Liyue. It is a distinct violet-red area with an unfathomably deep space underground that lays host to a new boss, the Ruin Serpent. The Chasm will also see the main story continue with the new Archon Quest “Requiem of the Echoing Depths” in the company of Dainsleif.
The Irodori Festival will also take place in Genshin Impact’s V2.6 update, where players can clear various challenges that can unlock a chance to recruit the four-star playable character Xingqiu.
Genshin Impact V2.6 New Character – Kamisato Ayato
Arguably one of the highlights of the update, a new five-star character will be available for players to pull in the form of Kamisato Ayato. He is the head of the Yashiro Commission’s Kamisato Clan and in his Story Quest, players will see how Ayato handles troubles and an unusual occasion as Inazuma steps into a new era of progress.
Ayato is a Hydro Sword wielder and can unleash immense Hydro damage in a short amount of time, but is capable of increasing the effects of his party’s Normal Attacks.
His English voice is none other than Chris Hackney, best known for his work on Shin Megami Tensei V (Fionn mac Cumhaill), Scarlet Nexus (Yuito Sumeragi), and Fire Emblem Three Houses (Dimitri). Ayato’s Japanese voice is Ishida Akira, best known for his work on Demon Slayer (Akaza), Jump Force (Gaara), and Saiyuuki Reload (Cho Hakkai).
Genshin Impact V2.6 Update goes live on March 30, 2022.
