Developers Mihoyo are finalizing Genshin Impact 2.2, the game’s latest expansion.

In just a few days, gamers can explore the latest content, including the last of Inazuma’s six major islands.

Tsurumi Island is billed as the most difficult for explorers to conquer, with dense fog enveloping the entire island and being a strong deterrent to outsiders.

Genshin fans will have to find their own way in, with the fog making it difficult to navigate the new locations and sights.

A post from Mihoyo adds: “There are also new monstrous beasts lurking in the gloomy mist. The Rifthounds and the Rifthound Whelps are stealthy monsters from the Abyss that can become invisible and prowl for the best chance of attacking in combat.

“Both the Rifthounds and the Rifthound Whelps have Electro or Geo attributes. But what makes this species really dangerous is their ability to apply Corrosion status to enemies.

“When an attack hits a character, all party members are affected by the Corrosion status and they continuously lose HP regardless of whether they are shielded or not. So watch out for the dogs.”


A new Genshin Impact Banner will be held as part of the launch of the new 2.2 update.

Developers Mihoyo have confirmed that the Childe Banner will launch on October 13, and the next patch is expected to be available for download around 4am BST.

A re-run is also planned, but Hu Tao will not return to the game until November 2021.

The big news is that Hu Tao will be back in Genshin Impact alongside a new four-star character, described as:

Known as the “fixer” in Inazuma, Thoma is also a reliable teammate in combat, with strong defense and buffs.

“Thoma swings a pole and holds a Pyro Vision. His Blazing Blessing elemental ability can deal AoE Pyro damage, apply Pyro to himself, and summon a defending Blazing Barrier. When the Blazing Barrier is active, the amount of Damage absorption needed can stack when another Blazing Barrier is acquired, also renewing its duration.

“With his Elemental Burst “Crimson Ooyoroi”, Thoma can help his teammates deal extra Pyro damage to enemies. He even has a special talent that gives successful fishing attempts in Inazuma a 20% chance of scoring a double catch.”

There is a good chance that there will be Genshin Impact maintenance on October 12, which will last several hours and will be followed by the launch of the new 2.2 update.

Mihoyo is expected to share more information about the next major patch for the game on Monday, October 11.

This contains more details about what we can expect for Genshin in the near future on PS4, PS5, mobile and PC.
