Just minutes after The Game Awards 2022 ended, Hoyoverse posted their official drip marketing on Twitter for the new characters of Genshin Impact 3.4, Yao Yao & Alhaitham.
The upcoming update will introduce two new Dendro Characters that will join Tignari, Collei, the Dendro Traveler, and Nahida (Dendro Archon).
Alhaitham was introduced during the Archon Quest in Sumeru. Yao Yao's first official appearance was during the TGA Ceremony in a trailer prepared for the Ceremony in which Genshin Impact won the Player's Voice Award.
The official announcement of the new characters starts shaping the upcoming version 3.4. Here is everything we know about the release of Layla and Nahida.
Alhaitham & Layla Release Date
Genshin Impact 3.4 will go live next year around January 18, 2023, if there are no changes in the current schedule. We don't know if Yao Yao and Al Haitham will share a banner.
These and more details about the upcoming patch will be revealed during the Genshin Impact 3.4 Livestream, which will likely go live in the first week of January 2023.
What do we know about Yao Yao in Genshin Impact?
The case of Yao Yao is very curious. She was part of the first leak of characters in Genshin Impact. The image contains Liyue and Inazuma characters, all released last year.
So players waited for the longest for Yao Yao, almost two years since the image was revealed.
The picture was filtered since Genshin Impact 1.0 and was pretty accurate, as the design of the characters is very close to their final version.
According to the official post on Instagram, Yaoyao is the disciple of Madame Ping, also known as Streetward Rambler.
Unfortunately, we don't have details about her weapon, but reportedly Yao Yao is a 4-star character.
What do we know about Alhaitham in Genshin Impact?
Alhaitham was our first contact in Sumeru City. He presented himself as the Scribe of the Akademiya. A very observant person who likes to keep a low profile.
We get to see Alhaitham in action several times during the events of the Dendro Archon Quest, so we know he has a Dendro Vision and uses the Sword as a Weapon. The leakers believe Alhaitham is a 5-star character.
To know more about Alhaitham, we recommend finishing the Dendro Archon Quest, as it seems he is very good at keeping secrets.
