During today’s Genshin Impact 3.0 livestream event, miHoYo revealed the details on which characters we’ll see in the first two Character Event Wish banners.
Along with details on the Sumeru region, quests, bosses, and some new redemption codes, miHoYo also shared the timeline for the first two banners when 3.0 launches. As usual, each update will have two banners, although with the time change we also learned that these will not be available during the usual time.
The first banner will consist of the new characters Collei and Tighnaria as four and five star marksmen respectively, as well as the five star Zhongli. The second banner has another new addition, Dori as four stars and Ganyu and Sangonomiya Kokomi as five star marksmen.
Even though Ganyu and Kokomi are both returning banner characters, they are still strong and highly desired additions to any team, making the choice between the two banners quite difficult.
Genshin Impact usually sees its updates every six weeks, however the pandemic caused one update to be delayed. In order to return to a normal schedule, miHoYo has stated that it will modify the update schedule so that updates 3.0 through 3.3 will arrive in 2022.
3.0 is already shaping up to be the most ambitious update Genshin Impact has seen so far, with a whole new region to explore that will be the biggest region in the game so far, three new characters, the new Dendro item, and a host of quests. and events. Fans don’t have to wait long, as the update is scheduled to be released on August 24, with each subsequent version being updated on September 28, November 2, and December 7.
