The date for the new Genshin livestream for Genshin Impact version 2.8 has been scheduled for July 2nd 2022. This will mark the end of Inazuma and our journey thus far in this exciting region. Many new characters and a ton of new content has already been released for players to enjoy with even more to anticipate for the game’s newest region, Sumeru.
What can we expect in Version 2.8 of Genshin Impact?
Leaks have already spread around on what to expect in Version 2.8 of Genshin. First of all there will potentially be a new mini event area similar to the explorable islands seen with Klee’s event, Midsummer Island Adventure seen before. This version of the game came with its own story and areas to explore even chests for players to collect more primogems! The new area is expected to be temporary like this one and contain the same high quality content we have come to expect from Genshin Impact releases.
This version will feature a unique storyline around a castle and will have features of various well known characters like Klee, Kazuha, Diluc and Mona who have not seen much screen time as of late after the release of Yelan. This short break before a major version release for the Sumeru Region is quite interesting as it is the same as what was done prior with the Midsummer Event coming right before Inazuma’s release.
What banners are in Version 2.8 of Genshin Impact?
The new version of the game will likely feature banners of rerun characters, Klee and Kazuha as well as the previously teased 4 star character, Heizou. These banners have been anticipated for quite awhile especially Kazuha because of how strong he is in the current META of the game. Kazuha is an extremely versatile anemo character that can go toe to toe with Venti for the best anemo character to slot into a majority of team compositions. As with all banner pulling we recommend following our gacha gaming guide to make sure you get the best bang for your buck!
Who is Shikanoin Heizou in Genshin Impact?
Shikanoin Heizou is a young detective from the Tenryou Commission of Inazuma. He is free-spirited and unruly, but cheerful and lively in nature. Always helpful to his friends and a bright light in the darkness of what can be a tough job.
At first glance, Heizou seems like an ordinary young man, but he is actually the undisputed number one detective in the Tenryou Commission. This will be something we as players will be able to explore more of when he releases as he will come with his own short questline and will likely find himself integrated into the story with the Traveler somehow. This fascinating character not only possesses a wild imagination, but he also has a mind for meticulous logic and reasoning, as well as an extraordinary sense of intuition when it comes to solving cases.
