After delays due to lockdowns, HoYoverse held its Genshin Impact 2.7 livestream event to catch gamers up on the state of the game. Alongside some new freemogem codes, the company announced that 2.7 will release on May 31.

Yes, after weeks of delays, Genshin Impact is getting the highly-anticipated 2.7 update. Yelan wanters will finally be Yelan havers. The 2.7 update replaces the current Ayaka banner with the hydro bow user, Yelan.

Also alongside the new Yelan banner will be a Xiao rerun banner. While I’m personally not a fan of the anemo vision holder, Xiao has a fervent fan base and people are extremely excited for this rerun.

Electro and Geo fans should also get excited. Following the Yelan and Xiao banners, HoYoverse is releasing a banner with everyone’s favorite himbo, Arataki Itto. Alongside Itto is another member of the Arrataki gang, Kuki Shinobu.

At long last, Electro users will get access to an Electro healer in the form of Kuki Shinobu. One thing that makes her kit interesting is that she sacrifices her own health in order to heal the rest of her team.

More story quests in Genshin Impact 2.7

New characters are great, but for many of us, the story quests of Genshin Impact is what keeps us coming back. Thankfully, 2.7 will continue to expand the Liyue storyline, including the recently-introduced Chasm.

Make sure to check out the video above to get a better idea of what to expect, but if you are a fan of the Genshin Impact lore, 2.7 might end up being an exciting update.

New events coming in 2.7

Genshin Impact events are a great chance to participate in some limited-time events, while also collecting some previous primogems for pulls.

According to the 2.7 livestream, players should expect a handful of events coming to the game.

These include:

  • Perilous Trail – This looks to be a domain-focused event
  • The Almighty Arataki Great and Glorious Drumalong Festival – Love rhythm games? You’re in luck
  • Core of the Apparatus – the Serenitea Teapot is back, baby!
  • A Muddy Bizarre Adventure – Another fighting-focused event, this time in the Chasm
  • The Gang’s Daily Deeds – Kuki Shinobu gets her own hangout event

And that covers all of the expected events in the 2.7 update for Genshin Impact!

When does Genshin Impact 2.7 release?

As we mentioned above, Genshin Impact 2.7 update releases on May 31, 2022. The new update will probably require an update patch.

Typically, HoYoverse allows players to preinstall updates, so make sure to keep checking the Genshin Impact app or desktop launcher closer to the date.
