Genshin Impact Update 2.7 Gets Name, Date, and Trailer

following your delay due to ongoing lockdowns in Shanghai, Genshin Impact Update 2.7 has a name, date, and a trailer, confirming that Kuki Shinobu and Yelan are the new characters and will be set in the newly added Chasm area. The highlight of this trailer definitely comes at the end, when a man’s voice resonates with comedic villainy: “I lured you here to this underground space because I found your weakness! Die here with me!”

As for the characters, Yelan is a five-star Hydro archer and first appeared in Teyvat during update 2.6. Currently, she is a bit of a mystery, but she used to work for the Ministry of Civil Affairs in Liyue. Kuki Shinobu is a four-star Electro Sword wielder and the Arataki Gang in Inazuma.

2.7 is called ‘Hidden Dreams in the Depths’ and will be released after some downtime on May 31st. It will run for six weeks until the 2.8 update, scheduled for July 13th.

MiHoYo is certainly keeping busy. In addition to the relentless pace of Genshin Impact updates, there’s HoYverse, your new “metaverse mark“, and the studio is developing its next title, Zero zone without Zen. It is also spending some of its money on an experimental fusion do you do.
