Fans have already been exploring the world of Teyvat since the free-to-play Genshin Impact was released last year, and they soon may have some additional cosmetic options to look forward to.
Releasing cosmetics for characters has never been as popular in Genshin Impact, at least compared to most free-to-play games. Developers at miHoYo may be working on a couple of new skins for existing Genshin Impact characters according to a popular leaker on Twitter.
A recent leak on by a credible Genshin Impact leaker has apparently revealed the new skin for Ningguang that will arrive in the upcoming Genshin Impact update 2.4. According to previous leaks, Ningguang’s Orchid’s Evening Gown skin will be obtainable for free during the limited 2.4 events.
Previously, another credible leaker named Genshin Intel apparently revealed more information about the upcoming Lantern Rite event which should arrive in one of the banner cycles for update 2.4. Ningguang will apparently not be the only character to receive a new set of cosmetics as the leak mentions that another Liyue character, Keqing, might get a skin as well. However, players will need to spend Genesis Crystals in order to unlock Keqing’s Opulent Splendor skin.
Every new Genshin Impact update brings at least two sets of events, one for each of the two banners. A credible Genshin Impact leaker has revealed additional information about the Lantern Rite event which will arrive in the upcoming 2.4 update. According to the leak, the new event will have the following themes:
- Smelting fireworks
- Wondrous Shadows – minigame similar to Shadowmatic
- New Boss domain with a three-head hydra
- Waverider minigames in Guyun Stone Forest
Genshin Impact updates usually bring new events, characters, and enemies. Even though playable characters are usually the focal point of each update, adding new enemies has proven to be just as exciting, especially if they have a special personality like the Azhdaha weekly boss. A recent post by a credible Genshin Impact leaker has apparently revealed the model for a new boss enemy, and it’s a familiar face. The Oceanic Defender, also known as Osial, has brought one of the biggest story boss fights so far. The monster was defeated by the Liyue squad after Tartaglia broke the legendary seal.
Genshin Impact is now available on Mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5 with a Switch version in development.
