There’s a Genshin Impact 2.8 trailer that teases some of the things people will do and see after the update. Things begin with a peek at Heizou, the new Anemo character. After that, a few of the characters featured in its storylines show up. Fischl will feature prominently. So will Hazuha, Mona, and Xinyan. All of them will be a part of the Summertime Odyssey. This will involve new domains and Waverider boating activities. People can also earn a free four-star Fischl for participating in the event.

The Special Program stream also offered a quick peek at Sumeru, the new region coming to Genshin Impact. Ahead of the areas shown, a new character “spoke” to the traveler. However, the screen was black for that portion and their identity wasn’t shared.

Finally, here are the free Primogem codes from the stream:

  • DTNVKAWBWSF5: 10 Mystic Enhancement Ores and 100 Primogems
  • WANVJAFAXTER: 10 Mystic Enhancement Ores and 100 Primogems
  • HA6C2AFBXSZV: 10 Mystic Enhancement Ores and 100 Primogems

The Genshin Impact 2.8 release date is July 13, 2022. It will appear one day after the Itto and Shinobu banner ends. Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices. It will eventually appear on the Nintendo Switch.
