New Character


Zhongli is a five stars rarity character who originates from the Liyue region and controls the Geo element.

To do this you’ll need a Story Key.

The quest is called "Historia Antiqua Chapter".


Genshin Impact has also added a bunch of new events too!

First off there is a Gliding challenge event which will run from December 4 until December 14.

You’ll be able to earn a range of awesome rewards thanks to four-star weapons and event-exclusive five-star weapons receiving a huge drop-rate boost.

The Seize the Day event will give you an extra reason to log in until December 16, earning you cool new rewards on top of those you would also earn!

Additionally, a Character Trial event that lasts until December 22 will let you trial some characters for a limited-time, including the new Zhongli!

That’s it for now!
