Developers Mihoyo has promised that there will be plenty to discover after Genshin Impact 2.2 is released this week.
Tsurumi Island is a new location shrouded in mystery and mist, with new enemies lurking.
The Rifthounds and the Rifthound Whelps are described as stealthy monsters from the Abyss that can become invisible,
They will try to sneak around for the best chance of attacking in battle, with both the Rifthounds and the Rifthound Whelps having Electro or Geo attributes.
Mihoyo has added something different to the mix with the new enemy type, as Rifthounds will also cause the corrosion status of enemies.
When an attack hits a character, all party members are affected by the Corrosion status and continuously lose HP regardless of whether they are shielded or not.
However, the curse of Tsurumi Island won’t stop gamers from exploring it as there will also be a new seasonal event to exploit.
Not to mention the new iterations of five-star characters with Childe and Hu Tao, and the brand new four-star character Thoma.
Thoma is not a new character as he accompanied you on your previous quests, but this will be the first time the fixer is available for use in your squad.
A post from Mihoyo details what Thoma can add to your party, telling gamers earlier this month:
“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 to score a double catch.
“Last but not least, if you like rhythm games, now is the time to play! In the Tuned to the World’s Sounds event, you will receive a new instrument Floral Zither to play a piece of music featuring Ningguang, Zhongli, Keqing, Xiao, Sangonomiya Kokomi, Kamisato Ayaka and the Raiden Shogun in different locations respectively.”
WHAT TIME IS GENSHIN IMPACT 2.2 UPDATE OUT?
Developers Mihoyo has revealed that the release date of Genshin Impact 2.2 has been set for Tuesday, October 12.
The new update comes after scheduled server maintenance, meaning Genshin 2.2’s release time is set for October 13 at around 4am BST in the UK.
For gamers in North America, the same Genshin update will be available for download on October 12 at 8pm PST.
As mentioned above, maintenance is underway, and is scheduled to begin at 11pm BST and run for a maximum of five hours.
During this time, Genshin fans will not be able to log in and play or enjoy the core features of the game.
The upside is that gamers are compensated for the downtime, with Mioyo revealing 300 primogems to be handed out.
