There’s always something new just around the corner for Genshin Impact. Update 2.2 has been around for more than a month, but we’re already eager for the next update in the pipeline. With no new five-star characters added in the previous patch, will this next one be a return to form for miHoYo’s live service hit? Following the 2.3 livestream event, we have a much clearer idea of what to expect when the update goes live in November. Below, we outline everything we know about update 2.3 including its expected release date, trailer prospects, possible banners, and more.
When is the Genshin Impact Version 2.3 release date?
As revealed during the livestream presentation, Genshin Impact Version 2.3 will begin on November 24, 2021. This is in line with our predictions, as miHoYo typically follows a set schedule with its releases.
Is there a Genshin Impact Version 2.3 trailer?
There is a Version 2.3 update trailer that showcases an event called “Shadows Amidst Snowstorms.” In the trailer, we get a look at the characters that will appear when the update goes live, along with some footage of their movesets and a look at the snow-filled story content.
The 2.3 trailer also shows off some of the new quests, events, and dungeons you’ll get to enjoy when the update becomes available.
What are the Genshin Impact Version 2.3 banners?
With no new five-star characters in Genshin Impact version 2.2, we’ve been eager to know about the banners to be added in 2.3. As many of the leaks alluded to, a slew of new characters will be added including Arataki Itto and Gorou.
Itto wields a claymore and has Geo Vision abilities. In-game he’s described as “tall, having a large build and two large horns, initially appearing to be scary at first glance." As you can see, Itto’s face looks like Jin from Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
Gorou will also be included as part of Version 2.3. He’s described as a bow character who also has Geo Vision abilities. This is a four-star character who will appear during the Sangonomiyan Resistance storyline.
In addition, Version 2.3 will feature a rerun of Albedo, a five-star character who also uses Geo-based abilities. The update will also include Aula, a five-star claymore-wielding warrior. Fittingly, Eula utilizes ice attacks, which fits nicely with the Shadows Amidst Snowstorm theme.
What are the Genshin Impact Version 2.3 events?
The main event with Version 2.3 is Shadows Amidst Snowstorms, which sends players to the Dragonspire Mountains. Here, you will partake in the “winter training” event, hosted by the Adventurer’s Guild, giving you a chance to hone your combat skills. This event will be the driving force of the story for Version 2.3 and will result in all-new rewards upon completion. You’ll also have the ability to build your own custom snowman, which is just as adorable as it sounds.
Version 2.3 will feature The Warrior Dog Event, as well, which sends players on a quest to find missing animals around the world. The Liben event will make an appearance, too, with several opportunities to obtain useful materials such as Primogems.
Itto’s weapon, the Redhorn Stonethresher will be included. This is a five-star claymore that will no doubt be effective in battle. You can also look forward to the new Husk of Opulent Dreams artifact set, along with Ocean-Hued Clam.
Genshin Impact Version 2.3 launches on November 24.
