Genshin Impact update 2.4 arrives on January 5 with two new characters
Genshin ImpactThe next update, version 2.4, will be released on January 5, Mihoyo announced over the weekend. Entitled “Fleeting Colors in Flight,” the update features the submerged ruins of Enkanomiya, “sealed for thousands of years under Inazuma,” the developers say.
“Fleeting Colors in Flight” will also include two new playable characters, Five-Star Shenhe and Four-Star Yun Jin. Both are stab fighters and helpful support characters for your team. They will face new enemies from the depths of Enkanomiya, including the Bathysmal Vishaps, described as “cunning social predators who can hunt together and take advantage of their surroundings in combat.”
As for the new territory, Enkanomiya is both “a huge floating island” which lies “under the ocean”, according to Mihoyo’s press release, and it is “constantly eroded by the Abyss”. Being underwater, Enkanomiya does not have the day / night cycle (although time still passes) of the surface. “Players will find a way to use Dainichi Mikoshi, the artificial sun developed by ancient civilization,” said Mihoyo, “as they delve into the puzzles and depths of Enkanomiya.
The New Year in the above world means new games, stalls, vendors “and all kinds of festivities” at Livue Harbor; seasonal events that give Livue characters a chance at four free stars (eight in all); 10 intertwined destinies; and a chance to help Ningugang rebuild the Jade Chamber.
Genshin Impact Originally launched in September 2020 and arrived on PlayStation 5 in April 2021. The free-to-play open-world action RPG currently allows players to explore Livue Harbor, Inazuma and Mondstadt, three of the seven cities of the larger Tevyat Kingdom .
