We are just hours away from the debut in Genshin Impact of Yelan the new 5-star character.

Yelan is a strong and fearsome, special agent, and owner of the Liyue underground casino, who is coming to the game with the arrival of version 2.7.

We have reason to believe we are in the presence of a character that is truly worth our Primogems!

In the newest demo trailer, Shadow of the Rain, we can see Yelan beating bad guys for sport. The video shows Yelan using her bow and hydro vision, with unique abilities so Travelers can get a feel for what she'll bring to the game.

Who is Yelan?

Yelan is a mysterious woman, who has inherited the Yanshan Tea House after its owner's demise. With a sophisticated network of spies, she seems to have eyes for everyone in Liyue.

As a playable character, Yelan will have very effective abilities that will bring a high damage output when she is in or out of the field.

Travelers can try her abilities in the event Perilous Trail. It is the first time Hoyoverse add a new 5-star as a Trial Character. For those looking to see them in action first, though, check them out in the new demo trailer below!

Breaking Down the Yelan Demo Trailer

The Genshin Impact demo trailer, Yelan: Shadow Rain, looks like a scene out of a Kurosawa western, but with modern disco songs inspired by a Macao Casino Ambience.

In the video, we can see Yelan defying the rain to run into some bad guys before they steal the goods of a poor Rickshaw driver.

Yelan's Elemental Skills and Burst are shown in great detail in these battles. The video is short, which is likely how most fights will look with the high DPS character in-game.
