MiHoYo, a global interactive entertainment developer and publisher, has announced the release date for the v2.2 upgrade to its fan-favorite RPG title Genshin Impact, Into the Perilous Labyrinth of Fog, soon to be available on October 13, 2021. There are various rewards in store for gamers, as those who haven’t contacted Aloy, the ‘Savior From Another World,’ will have a chance to receive the five-star crossover for free!
The last major island of Inazuma, Tsurumi Island, is now open for travelers with v2.2. The island is enveloped in deep fog, making it easy for players to become lost and face unexpected obstacles when exploring it. Its predators, known as Rifthounds and Rifthound Whelps, remain hidden in the fog, waiting to strike on their prey. The “Corrosion” state continuously impacts all party members as soon as an attack hits a character. Whether or not they are protected, they lose HP.
Likewise, Tsurumi Island appears to be the center of contemporary Sumeru scholar study. The “Shadow of the Ancients” event will allow players to complete investigative commissions around Mondstadt, Liyue, and Inazuma to fight an “Anomalous Model Ruin Grader” that continuously collects force from an obscure source of power to rejuvenate itself.
Thoma – a new playable character!
The popular “fixer” Thoma, who first appeared in Inazuma history, will be making a blasting entrance as a new playable four-star character. Holding a Pyro Vision and a polearm as his trusty weapons, players can select him in the second Event Wish with Hu Tao after Childe’s return in the first Event Wish. Version 2.2 will introduce Hangout events for Thoma and Sayu.
A whole new series of challenges and minigames
Along with the new update, there is an amazing new series of seasonal events. Dive into the “Labyrinth Warriors” event and enter a mystic domain in Inazuma with “Childe” Tartaglia, Eleventh of the Fatui Harbingers, and Xinyan, Liyue’s rock ‘n’ roll musician. You will also be guided by a strange paper figure named “Shiki Taishou,” who will provide extra assistance and buffs. Brave warriors will confront battles and obtain vital prizes in the event shop. Enjoy the rhythm game and play different styles of music with Ningguang, Zhongli, Keqing, Xiao, Sangonomiya Kokomi, Kamisato Ayaka, and the Raiden Shogun during another seasonal event called “Tuned to the World’s Sounds.”
New optimizations and refreshed gameplay!
Many improvements will be made to the present gameplay with v2.2. DualSense Controller compatibility will be accessible for the first time on Genshin Impact’s PC edition. More changes have been introduced to the Serenitea Pot, along with a new Inazuma-themed realm outline called “Silken Courtyard,” more Inazuma-style Furnishing Blueprints, a new furnishing type called “Floating Platform,” and flowers from the limited-time “Dreams of Bloom” event that can be used as furnishings.
A mind-blowing cross saving function for different platforms
On October 13, 2021, the Genshin Impact v2.2 update will be launched. Gamers now can continue their experience across PlayStation, PC, and other portable devices thanks to the cross-save feature. Follow the game on Twitter for more information and updates.
