miHoYo has formally announced through a showcase that Genshin Impact’s Version 2.5 Update, entitled “When the Sakura Bloom”, is coming on February 16, 2022.
Genshin Impact Version 2.5 New Character – Yae Miko
Highlighting the new update will be the addition of Yae Miko, the latest five-star Electro Catalyst character and the head shrine maiden of the Grand Narukami Shrine, who will be joining the roster. With her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst, Miko is capable of providing both constant damage off-field and high burst damage on-field. Yae Miko’s Event Wish will be available in the early stage of the update, followed by Event Wishes of Raiden Shogun and Sangonomiya Kokomi.
Genshin Impact Version 2.5 New Events and Enemies
There will be a new seasonal event called the “Three Realms Gateway Offering” which will take place in an area based on Enkanomiya and will last for the whole duration of Version 2.5. Players will set foot in an area that constantly accumulates corrosive darkness and the only way to get past this will be the Bokuso Box, a special gadget that can help resist the corrosive darkness, gain new abilities, and take down certain monsters.
Players can claim rich rewards including Primogems and the new 4-star catalyst weapon, Oathsworn Eye.
A new “Divine Ingenuity” event will also offer a chance for players to create their own domain. Participants of this event will be able to customize their own domains with a variety of terrain, mechanisms, traps, buffs and completion criteria.
There are also new enemies that players can square off against, including Standard Bearers, Line Breakers, and Defenders of the Shadowy Husk family, each type with different weapons, elements, and abilities.
On the other side of Inazuma, a formidable new Trounce Domain opponent arises, as Raiden Shogun’s Story Quest continues, promising to challenge players with intimidating combat mechanics.
