Hoyoverse just dropped a teaser for two new characters coming to Genshin Impact! They are Alhaitham and Yaoyao, and chances are, both of them will be playable in the Version 3.4 of the live service game.
Typically, characters that are teased by Hoyoverse are playable in the next version update of Genshin Impact, so there’s no reason the same wouldn’t apply to Alhaitham and Yaoyao. Unfortunately, the rarity of the new characters has not been revealed yet, though we reckon Alhaitham is a 5-star character, given how prominent he is in the main Sumeru storyline.
Unfortunately, there’s no mention of the weapons that Alhaitham and Yaoyao use, though the former does wield a sword in-game. Hoyoverse confirmed that these are Dendro characters as well, and it’ll be interesting to see the roles they will play in a team.
Expect Alhaitham and Yaoyao to be playable characters in Genshin Impact 3.4, which should be released sometime in January 2023 next month. Yaoyao also has a small teaser in the video below in conjunction with The Game Awards 2022. Enjoy!
