Genshin Impact continues to impress as an insanely addictive gacha game with another free expansion that adds tons to the already expansive title. The 1.5 update is scheduled to release on April 28th.
In this latest Genshin Impact update 1.5, dubbed ‘Beneath the Light of Jadeite’, you will be able to take on new adventures with a series of brand new events and features. Players will also be able to continue Zhongli’s story with an additional story quest, and there are two new characters to add to your team.
New Characters and a FREE Character event
Eula is the Captain of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company, and adds yet another five-star claymore user with Cryo to the game. Her Elemental Skill, Icetide Vortex, decreases her chance from being interrupted during attacks and skills alongside deals Cryo damage. Her Burst does AoE Cryo damage to anyone unfortunate enough to be in the radius, and it creates a Lightfall Sword which, upon her dealing enough damage to charge it, explodes for additional physical damage all over your foes.
This Pyro catalyst user is a half-human, half-illuminated beast that serves as a lawyer to inhabitants of Liyue. While that backstory may sound like an odd one, her charging Pyro attacks deliver fiery blows to enemies, and her Burst attack explodes in flames as a devastating AoE melee attack, making her a legal adviser not to be trifled with.
Diona - FREE character
