The upcoming Genshin Impact update 2.4 will bring two brand new Geo characters, at least according to the most recent event live stream. The update will include an interesting banner re-run and the two Geo Vision holders, Arataki Itto and Gorou.

Even though Version 2.3 has not even arrived yet, multiple leaks have already revealed much information about Genshin Impact version 2.4 which should arrive around January 6, 2022. miHoYo's official social media accounts have officially revealed the two new characters that will join the playable roster, Shenhe and Yun Jin.

Genshin Impact 2.4 beta phase has started and there are already numerous leaks about future content including a brand new region fans are refering to as Enkanomiya. Over the past couple of patches, miHoYo has introduced an interesting pattern by revealing new characters before the beta even arrives, most likely because the characters would be leaked on day one of the betas anyway. A recent leak on Reddit has apparently revealed large parts of Shenhe's kit:

  • Elemental Skill (tap) - allows Shenhe to dash forward dealing Cryo damage along the way, similar to Xiao's skill
  • Elemental Skill (hold) - deals AoE Cryo damage for a couple of seconds
  • Elemental Burst - releases the power of Sealed Spirit, allowing it to roam and deal AoE Cryo damage. The spirit will leave behind a field effect which will decrease Cryo and Physical Resistances of enemies in the field
  • Passive - Upon activating Shenhe's Elemental Skill, her party members gain a significant damage or skill buff, depending on the way it was activated (hold or tap)

Shortly after miHoYo officially revealed Shenhe and Yun Jin and, one of the most popular Genshin Impact leakers named Lumie has revealed a new dungeon will be coming to the game alongside the character, something which is not uncommon with new Genshin Impact characters. When it comes to Shenhe's rarity, there is no official information but multiple rumors hint that she will be a limited five-star banner character.

Previous leaks about her element have been confirmed by the official art and she will be a new Cryo character. Her weapon of choice will be the Polearm and according to multiple leaks, she's expected to be one of the strongest DPS characters in Genshin Impact. The newly discovered leaks hint that she could also have strong supporting capabilities.

There is no official information if Shenhe and Yun Jin will be featured on the same banner cycle. Previous leaks have been hinting that Ganyu and Xiao might get a banner re-run meaning that update 2.4 could have a similar pattern as its predecessor containing two new characters for one cycle and a strong double banner re-run for the other.

Genshin Impact is now available on Mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5. A Switch version is in development.

It seems unlikely that the Amazon series will be able to capture that same magic that the films had, and it certainly feels like more of a cash grab.
