The latest trailer for Genshin Impact, titled Teyvat Chapter Interlude Teaser, has provided some details and official art about Collei, the Harbingers, and the various characters and banners heading to the Sumeru region in patch 2.8.
The eleven Heralds, the lieutenants of Tsaritsa, who rule Fatui, mourn the death of Signora, their fallen comrade who was executed in a Duel before the throne. This was our first real look at the Heralds, but we already like their style, especially Il Dottore, who appeared in the manga, but makes his first appearance today here.
It’s hard to take them all in – after all this time, we expected each member of the Heralds to gradually reveal themselves to us one by one, rather than all at once – but it’s clear that each Herald has a specific role in executing their plans, and we’re curious to see if more details about them will be revealed throughout 2.8.

Speaking of which, the trailer has also given us our first official look at Collei, the apprentice ranger and Dendro user from the new Sumeru region, who is described as “positive and upbeat, enthusiastic and kind.” She joins Tighnari, another Dendro user and observer of the Avidya Forest, and Mora, a “rogue trader” with Electro vision, as Sumeru’s three new characters.
Patch 2.8 will also introduce the Summer Fantasia event which includes the Cursed Blade, a four-star weapon that you can collect as part of the core quest. Also appearing are the Kaedehara Kazuha and Klee replay banners, featuring the four stars Thoma, Shikanoin Heizou, and Ningguang, which will be released on August 2.
