The first banners for Genshin Impact Version 4.0 will be Lyney and Yelan. Both of them are Bow users. However, Yelan is a Hydro unit and Lyney is a Pyro one. Lynette will be the four-star on this banner. She is an Anemo Sword user whose skill is very similar to Yelan’s, in which she enters a quick-moving state that can mark enemies with her element. You’ll also be able to get Lynette for free through a 4.0 event, so you don’t have to worry if you want her but don’t get her here.

As for the second banners for Genshin Impact Version 4.0, we’ll see the return of two five-star characters from Liyue. Zhongli and Childe will be the five-stars, and Freminet will be the four-star. Technically, Childe is from Snezhnaya, but he debuted as a playable character during the Liyue Archon Quest. Freminet will be a Cryo Claymore user, whereas Zhongli is a Geo Polearm and Childe is a Hydro Bow.

Genshin Impact is readily available on the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Genshin impact Version 4.0 should debut on August 16, 2023.
