Genshin Impact‘s next big update is almost here, with a new event set to bring heaps of new content to the game. Most anticipated among the game’s fanbase is the arrival of Xiao as a playable character, an anemo polearm-wielding character first introduced in Liyue’s archon quests.
The update will take place on February 2 at 5 PM ET, with the servers anticipated to go down for around 5 hours for the update. Most of the new content, including Xiao’s banner, the new weapon banner, Xiao’s story quest, and the Lantern Rite festival will be live as soon as the maintenance is over.
The 4-star rate-up characters included on Xiao’s banner have also been announced, including cryo archer Diona, electro claymore-wielder Beidou, and pyro claymore character Xinyan. The banner will be shorter than most of Genshin Impact’s event banners have been so far, running only two weeks until February 17.
