Mihoyo just revealed some very interesting new details for Genshin Impact 1.3. Not only is the Version 1.3 update confirmed for 3 February, both Xiao – a new 5-star character – and Keqing will be featured in their respective character banners. That’s right, an existing 5-star character will be in the character banner for the very first time.
According to Mihoyo, Xiao will be available in Genshin Impact on 3 February right after the Version 1.3 update is released. Keqing, on the other hand, will be featured in her own character banner on 17 February. As usual, the 4-star characters that will be accompanying Xiao and Keqing in their respective banners have not been revealed yet.
Aside from that, Genshin Impact 1.3 will also have a number of new content, including the Lantern Rite festival. Throughout the event period, players can claim 10 free Intertwined Fates through a daily login event, over 1,600 Primogems, and a number of other rewards.
Also coming to Genshin Impact 1.3 is a tower defense strategy game dubbed Theater Mechanicus, a new Geovishap world boss, and get this: you can even pick one of six 4-star Liyue characters to be added to your roster. These include Ningguang, Beidou, Xingqiu, Xinyan, Xiangling, and Chongyun.
To recap, Genshin Impact 1.3 will go live on 3 February alongside Xiao. If you’d like to know about other changes coming to Version 1.3 of the game, check out our previous article.
