New Baizhu Genshin Impact Trailer Hints at His Illness

New Baizhu Genshin Impact Trailer Hints at His Illness

Ahead of the debut of the Baizhu banner on May 2, 2023, HoYoVerse shared a new trailer for the five-star Genshin Impact trailer. This is one of the cinematic character demos. This means while some gameplay elements are shown, it’s more about introducing the character’s personality and background. In the case of Baizhu, it means again referring to his undisclosed illness and the severity of it.

The video begins with a pot in the illness brewing some sort of medication. One of the Genshin Impact Treasure Hoarder enemies comes up to steal it, but Baizhu stops them. Changsheng, the talking snake always by his side, then notes that more showed up to steal it. Baizhu then uses his Dendro catalyst abilities to attack them while healing and shielding himself. At about the 1:16 mark, Changsheng references mortality. After a Treasure Hoarder threatens his life, Baizhu says, “My mortality is no one’s concern but mine.” This is a reference to the fact that the character is apparently suffering from a deadly illness in-game.

The video ends with a twist revealing exactly what kind of medicine Baizhu was working on, as well as a cameo from his assistant Qiqi.

This is one of two ways HoYoVerse is introducing the character ahead of his playable debut. There’s also a web event running until May 3, 2023.

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and HoYoVerse already told us the Baizhu banner will run May 2-23, 2023.
