When is Genshin Impact 2.8 coming out?

Announced in a press release, the next update for Genshin Impact releases in just over a week. Dubbed Summer Fantasia, the Genshin Impact 2.8 update will be a huge addition to the already massive game. 

Releasing on July 13th, 2022, Summer Fantasia adds more of, well, everything! In the gargantuan update developer miHoYo has added new areas to explore, new missions to complete, costumes to acquire and even a new character to play as. 

In the 2.8 patch, you’ll be able to explore brand-new islands in the Golden Apple Archipelago. All of the new areas are filled with unique puzzles to tease tickle your brain.

You’ll be able to explore the new locales with the new playable character: Shikanoin Heizou. For fans of swift and nimble fighters, he’ll be a perfect fit for your party! If you can pull him, of course. 

In the new storyline, you’ll be uncovering a mystery surrounding a cursed sword. What is this cursed blade and why is it changing the islands? We have no idea, but perhaps the trailer holds some clues! Check it out below:

The start of something new 

The Genshin Impact 2.8 update is the start of a new batch of content for the popular anime game. With the release of Summer Fantasia, the Summertime Odyssey seasonal event has officially begun!

In the newly redesigned archipelago, you can discover new treasure, explore dangerous dungeons and earn cool loot. Furthermore, there’s the chance to recruit Fischl, a four-star hero, for free! We like free stuff. 

MiHoYo’s Genshin Impact 2.8 update is just the tip of the iceberg for upcoming Genshin content. In fact, it seems that the same is still unstoppable!
