Genshin Impact 2.8

Genshin Impact 2.8, Summer Fantasia, is coming on July 13 and will reintroduce The Golden Apple Fantasia with a new look along with challenges, stories, plots, and rewards. Kaedehara Kazuha also wants to deepen his friendship with players during the first chapter of his personal Story Quest along with his friend Shikanoin Heizou. There's also a chance to obtain a four-star character, puzzles, sailing, and more. Let's take a look at it, shall we?

What else is in Genshin Impact 2.8?

This year's Summertime Odyssey event will have much more for players to do. There's new landscapes and stories that can be found, along with new treasure chests and the chance to obtain the four-star character Fischl and her newest outfit for a limited time. Players will also be accompanied by Xinyan, Fischl, Kazuha, and Mona, who seemingly have secret connections to certain places that both danger and pleasure can be found.

Sailing is usually a highlight, and this time around players can speedrun a specifically designed course or sail with friends online in three different game modes. There's Convoy, where players have to escort a large raft to its destination, Raid, where players have to pilot their own Waverider and fight enemies on floating platforms, and Descent, where players have to fight their way downward from a high platform in the sky.

How fast can you sail?

If you like to go for walks on the beach, you should also check out the Resonating Visions event, where conches can be collected and listened to. If a certain number of conches are collected and listened to, players will be able to redeem Fischl’s new outfit. There's also another outfit that will be made available in the Shop for Diluc, and it will have a "distinctive look, new idle animation, and new effect", which should please long-time fans of the character. 

With Kaedehara Kazuha finally receiving a Story Quest after a year, his friend, Shikanoin Heizou, is also making his debut as the first melee catalyst user. Unsurprisingly, he wields a catalyst and carries an Anemo Vision, with his Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst unarmed techniques like his Normal Attack. He will be available in Kaedehara Kazuha’s and Klee’s rerun event wishes in the early phase of Genshin Impact Version 2.8.

Last but not least are the incoming bonuses through the PlayStation Plus Pack, which is available to PlayStation Plus members at no additional cost. It will be refreshed when Genshin Impact Version 2.8 goes live and will include Mora ×50,000, Hero’s Wit ×20, Mystic Enhancement Ore ×15, and Fragile Resin ×2.
