Following the Version 2.2 update which saw the introduction of Thoma and Tsurumi Island, Genshin Impact is now gearing up for a snowy adventure as Version 2.3 “Shadows Amidst Snowstorms” will arrive on November 24, 2021.
The latest Genshin Impact update takes place in Dragonspine, a huge mountainous area covered by snow and subject to extreme weather all year round. Players can experience new events and challenges that will earn them useful rewards including the new 4-star Sword Cinnabar Spindle and even a special Gadget that can replicate forms of some creatures in the Serenitea Pot.
Players who missed out on both Albedo and Eula will get another crack at them with a Wish event, which will be followed by another Wish Event featuring a couple of new characters, Arataki Itto and Gorou.
The new five-star character Arataki Itto is an intrepid man with Oni blood running through his veins. Wielding a giant Claymore and the power of Geo, he can slash empowered Charged Attacks with his unique Superlative Superstrength and transform himself into the Raging Oni King, buffing his attack capabilities while lowering his Elemental and Physical Resistance.
The new four-star character Gorou also wields a Geo Vision but favors the bow as a weapon. As the great general of Watasumi Island’s forces, he can provide more buffs to characters on the field with more Geo characters in the party.
Genshin Impact Version 2.3 will go live on November 24 for the PS4, PS5, PC, and Mobile Devices.
