This follows the typical pattern for Genshin Impact updates. Typically, the new one begins the day after some of the current gacha banners and events expire. The Ganyu and Zhongli rerun banners both end on February 15, 2022. Not to mention the Aftermarket Stage Event Shop for the Fleeting Colors in Flight Lantern Rite closes on February 14, 2022.

Among the many new additions in 2.5 will be the debut of a new character and return of past units. Yae Miko, a five-star Electro unit who uses a Catalyst, will be the update’s new character. Among the rerun characters will be Raiden Shogun, an Electro polearm-wielder. Both factor heavily into the Archon Quests set in Inazuma. They’ll each get their own story quests, which will appear immediately after the update drops. However, you will need to beat Raiden Shogun’s first two story quest chapters to unlock Yae’s.

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices. It will eventually come to the Nintendo Switch. The release date for Genshin Impact update 2.5 is February 16, 2022. People will be able to watch a reply of the February 4, 2022 Special Program on the official YouTube channel sometime after its debut today.
