Although it is still content to come, Genshin Impact fans want to know more about patch 2.8 and all the news. We have some leaks about this patch, so take a look below.
We are currently in Genshin Impact Patch 2.6, and we are in the middle of investigating patch 2.7 leaks. But that does not prevent data miners from working on another version beyond: version 2.8 of Genshin Impact.
It may seem that little is known about this version. But well-known leakers like Ubatcha, Uncle Chasm, or NoLifeGuard have been working on it for some time now. And at least that’s how it is officially.
Genshin Impact version 2.8 release date
HoYoverse has not yet announced the release date for this update. But according to the regular patch cycle (which lasts around six weeks), this version will arrive at the end of June.
On the official date, version 2.7 would arrive on May 11, and therefore, 2.8 should come on June 22. However, with the delay of version 2.7, the calendar has been entirely misplaced. The latest leaks indicate that 2.7 will arrive on May 31, which would place the 2.8 patches in early July.
Version 2.8 banners
According to the leaks, these would be the reruns of the version :
Kazuha (with the main story)
Klee (with possible main story)
It would make sense that no new character would arrive in this version. In patch 3.0, great news awaits us for Genshin Impact, so 2.8 will try not to steal the spotlight.
However, there is someone who has been talked about for this version. There have been numerous leaks about unreleased Genshin characters, and one of those characters is Shikanoin Heizou.
Heizou is likely to be introduced to Genshin Impact in update 2.8. While details on Commission Detective Tenryou have been scant, beta version 2.8 has revealed information on his elemental and explosion ability.
The gameplay of the 4-star Anemo character has already started appearing on various social media platforms. The 5-star that will appear alongside Heizou is currently unknown, but with Kazuha receiving her story chapter from her in 2.8, we’re likely to see another rerun.
So far, the Genshin 2.8 leaks have not revealed any particular enemies that will be seen in the next update. However, it is known that there will be changes to the Spiral of the Abyss.
New areas on the map
The Golden Apple Archipelago would return for patch 2.8, according to leaks. And considering that the version arrives just for summer, this information sounds very realistic.
However, the Archipelago will be somewhat changed to adapt to the new event.
Genshin Impact Patch 2.8 Events
According to Project Celestia, A Summer Sea Sojurn is the main event of version 2.8. The leaker revealed that Fischl, Kazuha, Xinyan, Yun Jin, Mona, Venti, Xiangling, and Nahida would be among those appearing during the summer-themed festivities. While specific details about event activities remain scarce, leaks indicate that travelers can get a free Fishcl by redeeming 2,000 event coins. This is a plus for any player looking to add the Prinzessin to their team.
The Ludi Harpastum event featured in Klee’s story mission and the official manga is rumored to be released during the 2.8 updates, which is also expected to include Klee’s return banner.
