In conjunction with Tokyo Game Show 2021 (TGS 2021), miHoYo held a special live stream event unveiling all the sweet details of Genshin Impact version 2.2 update – “Into the Perilous Labyrinth”. The update is scheduled for arrival on 13th October 2021 and continues to add new content to the game.

The update includes the final major island for the Inazuma region, one new playable character and a slew of events. After two back-to-back major updates since version 2.0 and version 2.1, players should be able to chill and explore the new region after this update arrives.

New Character

Character Banners

For the very first time since the game release, we’re not getting a new 5-star character in a new version update. Instead, we’re getting two 5-star characters rerun which is Childe and Hu Tao. Thoma will be added as a featured 4-star in the Hu Tao rerun banner.

New Weapons

New Map – Tsurumi Island

Tsurumi Island will be the new Inazuma region added to the game. The new island has a mysterious background and is covered with thick fog. This region is most likely inspired by the Japanese ghost movies, hence expect a lot of eerie encounters while exploring for chests and challenges.

New Monsters

Rifthounds & Rifthound Whelps are the new enemies that come with the new Tsurumi region. Take note that the new monster has Corrosion ability which causes all characters in the party to actively lose health over time.

New Hangout Events
