Genshin Impact 2.4 Lands 5 January 2022 – Shenhe & Yun Jin Confirmed, New Area
December 28, 2021 Andrew Cheng

Genshin Impact 2.4 will be arriving next week, and as expected, both Shenhe and Yun Jin are confirmed to be playable characters. On top of that, the Version 2.4 update will also add a new area dubbed Enkanomiya, an underwater nation beneath Inazuma.

Let’s start with the two new characters. Shenhe is a 5-star Cryo character wielding a polearm, while Yun Jin – also a polearm user – is a 4-star Geo character. Both of them will be featured in the same event wish as the first banner of Version 2.4, alongside Xiao’s own rerun banner.

As for phase two of the event wish, it will be a rerun of Ganyu and Zhongli simultaneously.

Enkanomiya, on the other hand, is described as a “huge floating island located beneath the ocean, constantly eroded by the Abyss.” Naturally, there are new enemies in Enkanomiya too, including the Bathysmal Vishaps and Abyss Lector: Fathomless Flames.

A number of in-game events will be held in Genshin Impact 2.4 as well in celebration of the Lantern Rite festival. Not only can you claim a free 4-star Liyue character (including Yun Jin!), 10 Intertwined Fates are also up for grabs. If you’ve got Keqing or Ningguang, good news: both of them are getting new outfits in Version 2.4.

Genshin Impact’s Version 2.4 update will go live on 5 January 2022. Once the update is live, Shenhe, Yunjin, and Xiao’s banners will be available.
