The role-playing game genre has seen many great games over the years. Witcher 3, Elder Scrolls, World of Warcraft, Mass Effect are just some of the most popular RPG games that are still played today. Most of the time, these games are set in a fictional world with some kind of meta-abilities harnessed by the main character or all the characters in general. Although, sometimes developers do try to sneak in some easter eggs or lore from the real world into the game itself. And that truly engages the players. One such currently popular RPG game is Genshin Impact. In this article, we will be talking about Genshin Impact 2.2 release date. Along with it, we would also be looking into what’s new with this update.
Genshin Impact is an action RPG game developed by miHoYo, a Chinese game developing company. It was first released for Android, iOS, Windows, and PS4 in September 2020. The game was a huge success right the moment it was released. Many players pre-ordered the game as it is a free-to-play title on all the platforms and received some rewards for the same. It has a great storyline, gameplay mechanics, and graphics that improve the overall experience of an RPG title. The game is made specifically for mobile users, and thus, we can see more of its sale on Android and iOS. That does not mean that other platforms did not see a significant amount of downloads. Just within a year, this game has a massive player base. With that out of the way, let us look at Genshin Impact 2.2 release date.
Genshin Impact Plot And Story So Far
Genshin Impact follows the story of two twins who are traveling place to place, across stars. On one such journey, they happen to discover the Land of Teyvat. Looking at the war that was upon the Khaenri’ah region, they decide to quickly leave this place. However, when they tried to leave, a mysterious god appeared before them. Here the player has the option to choose between girl twin or boy twin. The god then captures one twin and seals the other one for 500 years. The sealed twin wakes up and meets with a fairy-like creature who calls her Paimon. She dubs him as the Traveller. They then travel to Monstadt to search for the missing twin.
After the battle with the dragon by the name Stormterror, Venti, Paimon, and the Traveller are confronted by La Signora, a Fatui Harbinger, where she steals Venti’s Gnosis. Later, Venti advises the pair to look for Rex Lapis, the Geo Archon. When they arrive in Liyue, they witness Rex Lapis being killed during a ritual. And their hopes of finding out about the sibling were diminishing. There they meet Childe, a Fatui Harbinger who is secretly searching for the Lapis’ Gnosis himself. They later find out that Zhongli, a funeral parlor consultant, is the human vessel of the Geo Archon. However, he had secretly made a contract with La Signora gave her his Gnosis.
When they return to Monstadt, Traveller meets a man by the name of Dainsleif. Together, they investigate the Abyss Order. By doing so, Traveller meets with his long-lost sibling, who now happens to be the leader of the Abyss Order. They explain to Traveller the true nature of Dainslief and how the Abyss Order and all those monsters are actually the people of Khaenri’ah. They part ways with the promise that they will reunite sooner or later.
Genshin Impact 2.2 Release Date And What’s New
Genshin Impact 2.2 release date is set for October 13. The new update of Genshin Impact will be releasing in just a few days. And with that, we will get to see many new things popping up in the game. We will get two new characters in this new 2.2 update. First is Thoma, the Kamisato clan’s housekeeper. We have already met him in Inazuma. However, in this 2.2 patch, he will be available as a playable character. He is a Pyro user, and his weapon of choice is a trusty Polearm. Another character releasing is Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn. She was first available for only PS4 and PS5 users, but with the Genshin Impact 2.2 patch, we can finally claim her for free on Android, iOS, and Windows.
Genshin Impact 2.2 patch Banners are a bit of a disappointment this time. We get a repeated Childe banner, would not have minded a Diluc banner but whatever. Although, with the Hu Tao banner, Thoma will be up for grabs. As we are well in the season of Halloween, presenting the mysterious island of Tsurumi, the last island to unlock in the Inazuma region. A new thick fog-covered land with various monsters is sure to give you creeps and vibes of the season. This place will also serve as the location for the main story event. There are many more new weapons, quests, rewards, and monsters waiting for us in Genshin Impact 2.2 update patch.
Expectations And Thoughts On The Genshin Impact 2.2 Patch
Genshin Impact is a game that had first left us wondering with where exactly is the Traveller’s sibling. And the search still continues even after their brief encounter. With every new update, we get closer and closer to figuring out the mystery behind the same. How exactly did the people of Khaenri’ah turn into those Abyss Order monsters? We might even find the answer to it in the new patch. Genshin Impact 2.2 seems exceptionally good with new playable characters and advancement in the storyline. Although, one thing that disappoints us is the banner. Let’s not dwell on it much and enjoy the update for what it is. Until then, keep playing, keep reading with us at Otakukart.
