Hoyoverse released a rather interesting new (animated) trailer for Genshin Impact, and it focuses quite a bit on Xiao. It’s quite an intriguing video that goes into Xiao’s struggle as a Yaksha, and three other characters – Baizhu, Qiqi, and Venti – make an appearance in the trailer too.
What makes this trailer particularly intriguing is the fact that it has some stunning animations; something that isn’t done very often in Genshin Impact’s promotional videos. There’s a chance the trailer is a glimpse at the storyline for this year’s Lantern Rite festival in the game.
The Lantern Rite festival in Genshin Impact is an in-game event that takes place in the Liyue region. It’s done in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration on an annual basis, and it usually offer a generous amount of rewards.
Genshin Impact 3.4 is set to arrive next week on 18 January alongside Alhaitham’s event wish and Xiao’s rerun banner, so it’s no coincidence that he is featured quite prominently in the trailer above. More details on the Version 3.4 update of Genshin Impact can be found here.
