2 new characters have been officially announced:

  • Albedo , a 5-star Geo- type character who wields the one-handed sword. He is the chief alchemist, as well as the Captain of the Knights of Favonius investigation team . He will be able to summon a platform that will also serve as an elevator, and can perform a Geo zone attack . It will arrive at the same time as the release of version 1.2.

  • Ganyu , a 5-star Cryo- type character who wields a bow. She appeared in chapter 1 of the story. It can charge its basic attack more or less long, the latter transforming into an area attack when fully charged. She will also be able to use a decoy to attract enemies, and use an area attack that will drop Cryo shards on the ground. It will be available in January 2021.

The Dragonspine Mountains are the new area that will be opened in version 1.2 of Genshin Impact. Place where Durin, the evil dragon defeated by Dvalin rests, this snowy area with a harsh climate is corrupted by the cursed blood of Durin and infested with monsters. New quests will be waiting for you there.

A new mechanic linked to this area will also appear. A cold gauge will drop over time, and your characters will start to lose health once it reaches zero. You will then need to find ways to warm up, through specific actions and places.
