About Genshin Impact
Genshin Impact takes place in the fantasy world of Teyvat, which is home to seven distinct nations, each of which is tied to a different element and ruled by a different god. The story follows the Traveler, who has traveled across countless worlds with their twin sibling before becoming separated in Teyvat. The Traveler travels in search of the lost sibling with their companion Paimon and becomes involved in the affairs of Teyvat’s nations.
Version 2.8 was released on July 13, 2022. The patch update includes Heizou’s release, banner reruns for Kazuha, Klee, and Yoimiya, Fischl and Diluc skins, new Story and Hangout quests, and a huge summer event. Watch the trailer for v2.8 below.
Genshin Impact 3.0 was released on August 24, 2022.
