Are you curious about patch 2.7 and what else is planned in it? Continue reading the article to know every detail about it.
Genshin Impact 2.7 Update Release Date
Genshin Impact 2.7 update will release on May 31 according to the official announcement by HoYoverse. The in-game servers will go under maintenance for about five hours starting from May 31 at 06:00 (UTC+8) and the update’s duration has been decreased to about six weeks because of the delay.
Genshin Impact 2.7 leaks
One of the popular leakers of Genshin Impact, Lumie, has discovered two brand new characters that might be coming to Genshin Impact 2.7 update, including Yelan and Kuki Shinobu. Each of them is expected to have high combat power and abilities.
According to Lumie, Yelan will make an appearance in the first half of the update, which means that Travelers will be able to use their Primogems on her banner to pull her. HoYoverse has confirmed that Yelan will have a unique ability called Hydro Vision, which she can use to defeat her enemies.
Her elemental skill most likely will have a press and hold mechanic, which will result in her sprinting and having chances of getting the off-field passive status. The passive status will reduce the next charged attack time and apply AoE Hydro Damage. The datamined files of Yelan reveal that she uses a bow as her primary weapon; the recent screenshots surfaced on Reddit further confirm this fact.
While Yelan is expected to get released in the first half of the update, Kuki Shinobu is rumored to be available in Genshin Impact 2.7 Phase II. The surprising fact that the leaks have uncovered is that she’s a 4-star character and the deputy leader of the Arataki Gang who uses an electro sword as her weapon.
Leaks about Kuki Shinobu’s kit disclosed that she might have energy recharge problems that can be remedied by pulling for her first constellation. However, it is uncertain whether Shinobu will synergize with 5-star Geo Oni.
So that’s all the information about the Genshin Impact 2.7 update, and we’ll be updating the article with the latest news as soon as it’s released.
