Genshin Impact 2.8 Trailer
The Genshin Impact 2.8 trailer filtered by Epic Games is a 30 seconds long. A shorter version than the one we will receive during Hoyoverse Livestream.
However, we managed to see some exciting images of what is coming to the game:
- The video shows the new Genshin Impact character Shikanoin Heizou's skills in action. He is an Anemo Catalyst user that uses his fist to battle enemies.
- The second part of the video show Fischl in a Gothic Purple Castle
- We know, by leaks, that the castle is one of four domains that will reflect the personality of the characters.
- Mona, Kazuha, Xinyan and Fischl are the characters will have their domain during this event.
- After that, we see a collage of images, Aether is inside a dungeon, like the ones in Inazuma.
- We can also see a flying boat, which could possibly be the way the traveler and friends arrive in the Golden Apple Archipelago.
- The video ends with the main character of this update, Fischl and the Golden Apple Archipelago.
- By the way, Fischl will get a new skin inspired in Shakespeare's Comedy: A Midsummer Night's Dream
We are definitely in for an exciting new adventure in Genshin Impact.
