A plethora of 2.8 beta leaks has surfaced, revealing critical facts about the next Genshin 2.8 patch, such as new characters, banners, enemies, events, and more. Furthermore, HoYoverse has revealed new information about the character which will be included in Genshin 2.8.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Livestream Date

Several leaks have suggested that the Genshin 2.8 update will include Heizou, so players are well aware of that. Furthermore, because HoYoverse has made him public to the players, it is safe to assume that they will be included in the 2.8 patch.

However, HoYoverse hosts a live stream prior to the release of a new patch, and as is customary, players will be able to watch the Genshin Impact 2.8 Livestream shortly after it is released.

While travelers may anticipate the release of version 2.8, the same can be said for the Livestreams. The Genshin Impact 2.8 special program's announcement is still to be made, and gamers are up with their calculated guesses.

The 2.6 Livestream took place on March 18th, 2022, while the 2.7 Livestream took place on May 20, 2022, two weeks before the Genshin Impact servers were updated. If we are to go by the previous patterns, then players should expect the 2.8 Livestream to begin sometime in late June or early-July 2022.

July 1st can be the possible Genshin Impact 2.8 Livestream date.

On Fridays, the developers normally release a special program for the next game version, however, players should keep in mind that the formal announcement from HoYoverse is still pending.

Where to watch Genshin Impact 2.8 Livestream

Those who are keen to know the upcoming changes before the main release should definitely watch it on the official Genshin Impact Twitch channel.

The Genshin 2.8 Livestream will be available in both English and Chinese on the Twitch channel, however, in case anybody misses the 2.8 Special Program on Twitch, they can watch the video later on, on the official YouTube channel which will be made available a few hours after the Livestream.

Moreover, during the Genshin 2.8 Livestream, HoYoverse will likewise provide new Primogem codes to acquire lots of free primos.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Livestream Time

As per the above-mentioned pattern of 2.6 and 2.7 Livestream, HoYoverse usually conducts any Genshin Livestream at 08:00 AM (UTC-4).

So if we are speculating, as per the different timezones, the Genshin Impact 2.8 Livestream will be held at:

  • 04:00 PST (Pacific Standard Time)
  • 07:00 EST (Eastern Standard Time)
  • 09:00 BST (Brazil Standard Time)
  • 12:00 GMT (Greenwich Mean Time)

So far we have no leaks on how long the 2.8 Livestream will be, but we only have Heiozu who is formally announced, so it will be best to expect a short Livestream.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Livestream Codes

With the introduction of new characters and content, miHoYo likewise gives away three new Genshin Livestream codes for primogems. So players can expect the same and should wait for the Genshin 2.8 Livestream codes that will also be announced during the stream, which will only be active for 24 hours.

According to the art, we should expect a rerun of the Kazuha banner and a new skin for Fischl, but nothing has been announced officially. However, we do know the name of the next Genshin 2.8 update - Summer Fantasia.

Every version update has a unique name attached to it, Version 2.7, for example, was dubbed "Hidden Dreams in the Depths", and the upcoming patch will entirely be summer based.

Genshin Impact 2.8 characters

Shikanoin Heizou is one of the unreleased Genshin characters who has been the subject of multiple leaks. Fans have been anticipating his appearance in the game for quite some time, and the actual announcement has come as a welcome relief.

Heizou is Sara's coworker and a (self-proclaimed) Tenryou commission detective who has been mentioned multiple times by other characters in the game. Kamisato Ayaka and his distant elder relative Kano Nana initially mentioned Genshin Heizou in their voice lines.

Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou, the Analytical Harmony, is the Tenryou Commission's detective, the first male catalyst, and the leader of the Anemo element.

Heizou will be the last character from Inazuma to be available in the 2.8 release, according to multiple prominent leakers. Moreover, Heizou's stats have likewise been shared:

  • Weapon: Catalyst
  • Rarity: 4 stars
  • Attack: 225
  • HP: 10657
  • Defense: 684
  • Ascension: Anemo Damage 24%

Yet it remains to be seen, how correct these leaks are.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Banners leak

There has been no specific announcement on the Genshin Impact 2.8 banners or which characters would be present on the upcoming banner as of yet. However, as per leaked data, gamers may notice some interesting characters in the 2.8 banners.

Previous leaks revealed that there will be no new 5-star characters in the update, which is a possibility. Furthermore, a new leak involving the Genshin 2.8 banners has revealed the characters who will be rerunning in a future patch.

Recently, a new Genshin Impact 2.8 banners leak was posted by the @Lumie on Twitter account talking about the characters who will appear on the 2.8 banners and the phases that they will appear in. The following Genshin Impact 2.8 banners are expected, according to leaks.

  • Genshin Impact Klee banner rerun
  • Genshin Impact Kazuha banner rerun
  • Genshin Impact Yoimiya banner rerun

Lumie has revealed that the Genshin Impact 2.8 phase 1 banners will have Klee and Kazuha. This implies, that Klee and Kazuha will be the 5-star characters in Phase 1 of the Genshin 2.8 banners, while the Yoimiya rerun will be given in Phase 2 of the update.

The leaker in their post wrote, "[2.8] Klee and Kazuha first half w/ Lost Prayer + Freedom Sworn."

According to the source, there are two banners in phase 1 of the Genshin 2.8 update, and Heizou would appear in phase 1 of the 2.8 banners only as he is a 4-star character who will receive a huge drop rate boost.

Moreover, these leaks also support what Uncle Y from NGA said about the Genshin Impact 2.8 banners. It was claimed that players will get to see Klee, Yoimiya, and Kazuha in the 2.8 banners, however, it was categorized under the [speculation] tag.

On July 13, 2022, the Genshin 2.8 update will go live and that date would be 6 weeks after the release of Version 2.7 as announced by HoYoverse.

Usually, any Event Wishes in Genshin lasts for 21 days, so based on this information, the forthcoming 2.8 Event Wishes should have the following release dates:

  • Genshin Impact 2.8 Phase 1 will begin on July 13, 2022.
  • Genshin Impact 2.8 Phase 2 will begin on August 3 or 4, 2022 (depending on the first banner).

Prior to Genshin 3.0 update, we have a lot of characters left for reruns including Klee, Kazuha, Yoimiya, Itto, and Shenhe. Genshin 2.7 leaks have claimed that Itto rerun is planned for the 2.7 update, so we have Klee, Kazuha, Yoimiya, and Shenhe left for version 2.8.

Yet, it remains to be seen who all will actually appear on the Genshin 2.8 banners.

Genshin Impact 2.8 region - Golden Apple Archipelago leak

The current Genshin Impact Version 2.7 has incorporated some extended areas of the brand-new territory named Chasm, and 2.8 leaks have disclosed that version 2.8 will include a new region.

There are many regions in the title which have to be revealed in the main game, and new leaks say that one of these regions, Golden Apple Archipelago, will be seen in the Genshin 2.8 update, which will be the final patch before version 3.0.

genshin impact 2.8 region, genshin 2.8 region, genshin 2.8 twinning isles, genshin 2.8 island, genshin 2.8 gaa island
Genshin 2.8 region - Twinning Isles

Blank, a well-known Genshin leaker, revealed some intriguing photographs of a new location that will be included in Version 2.8. With Enkanomiya published in 2.4 and Chasm in 2.6, version 2.8 is likely for the devs to offer a new part of the map.

Twinning Isles is the name of the new Genshin 2.8 region, which is made up of multiple small islands. The leaked GAA image depicts a model of a castle perched on a pair of cliffs, and the leak claims that players will be able to enter its interior.

According to many sources, this new region will be limited to Genshin Impact Version 2.8. However, dataminers also revealed that "a description of a Statue Of The Seven for a [(test) Island] appeared in the beta text. But it is not yet certain that the Golden Apple Islands will be permanent"

Genshin 2.8 Twinning Isle castle

The Golden Apple Archipelago is not a new name for Genshin Impact veterans, as the location was originally released in the 1.6 ptach.

The Genshin Impact Golden Apple Archipelago was the largest summer festival in the game, with beaches, boating, and other enjoyable activities. It would be exciting for players to stay on the islands for the entire summer.

However, according to Genshin Impact leaker Sagiri, the tropical region will be changed to reflect the new event.

"As the event progresses, GAA's landmass will change/shift," the leaker claimed. "It's not that there are more islands being added. "Double Double Island," for example, has been modified at least 3 to 4 times, and the map file is called DreamIsland." As Travelers return to the sunny shores, there will most likely be new methods and game styles to play and learn.

If leaks are to be believed, the 2.8 Twinning Island is likely to be the final map extension before the first new large region appears in Genshin Impact Version 3.0. It has been suggested that the new region is the enigmatic Sumeru, which is made up of many deserts and forests.

Genshin Impact 2.8 domains leak

Recently, credible leaker BLANK posted a series of new Genshin Impact 2.8 leaks on his Discord channel. BLANK posted numerous images of new Golden Apple Archipelago domains that will emerge in the Genshin patch 2.8 upgrade.

The Genshin 2.8 GAA leak also exposes the names of the new GAA domains - "Phantom Realms" - assigned to the following characters:

  • Xinyan
  • Mona
  • Kazuha
  • Fischl

  • Genshin 2.8 Xinyan Realm

Genshin 2.8 leaks have revealed new images of the 2.8 Xinyan domain, out of which a few were revealed in the early stages of 2.8 beta only, but we didn't know what they were for.

Xinyan will have her own 2.8 GAA Phantom Realm, which will be significantly different from others.

  • Genshin 2.8 Mona Realm leak

The leaked photographs were published on social media, and one of the new domains is thought to be Mona's Phantom Realm, as the aesthetic appears to fit Mona's character design, with numerous colors of blue and starry skies.

Players mentioned that the style of the 2.8 GAA Mona's Domain matches the Spiral Abyss and several of the Artifact Domains while discussing it.

In addition to the domain, Genshin Impact 2.8 leaks have disclosed a few photographs of Mona's home, and it has been indicated that players will be able to enter her apartment.

  • Genshin 2.8 Kazuha Realm

In the final batch of leaked Genshin 2.8 GAA photographs, we have the Phantom Realm of Kazuha.

Genshin 2.8 GAA Kazuha's domain appears to take place within a shattered house, and many in the community assume it is tied to his old house, which the character's family was forced to sell.

Now each of these Genshin Impact 2.8 domains looks incredible, and there are some other ideas that claim that these Phantom Realms are linked to each character that might appear in the Genshin 2.8 Golden Apple Archipelago event and this includes Yunjin too.

Genshin Impact 2.8 events

With the 2.7 update, players have a lot of expectations in terms of events, and the new leak suggests that players will get an ample amount of events and quests in the 2.8 update as well.

As per the leaked data, different events will be brought back in Genshin Impact's 2.8 update along with several new quests and events.

Initial Genshin 2.8 leaks revealed that a major Summer event is planned for the upcoming patch, however, new leaks have revealed some new additions to the list.

The leaked Genshin Impact 2.8 events include:

  • Summertime Odyssey [A Summer Sea Sojourn] - 2.8 GAA event
  • Resonating Visions [Dreamlike Visions event]
  • Secret War event (dungeon battles at Dawn Winery)
  • Hidden Strife [Fischl hangout event]
  • Hangout Event [Heizou hangout event]
  • Acer Palmatum [Kazuha Story Quest "Acer Palmatum Chapter: Act I"]
  • Evermotion Mechanical Painting
  • Reminiscent Regimen

Moreover, the leaks likewise revealed the main Genshin 2.8 event is going to be the upcoming Genshin 2.8 Golden Island Archipelago event or Genshin Summertime Odyssey event, rewarding free Fischl to the players.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Summertime Odyssey event

The Genshin Summertime Odyssey event is the main event in Version 2.8, according to Genshin Impact leaker @Genshin Intel.

Moreover, the leaker states, "A Summertime Odyssey" (summer islands v2), rewards an event currency (something similar to the Shiny Flotsam in 1.6) and free Fischl can be redeemed using 2000 event currency."

Genshin Impact 2.8 Summertime Odyssey

The possible characters coming with Genshin 2.8 Summertime Odyssey event are:

  • Fischl
  • Kazuha
  • Xinyan
  • Yun Jin
  • Mona
  • Venti
  • Xiangling
  • Nahida

Players can rearrange the islands in a Summertime Odyssey, which is simply a Golden Apple Archipelago rerun, to solve riddles or for pleasure. Players will be able to alter the land by choosing one of three alternatives, which will then be represented on the map.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Resonating Visions event and Secret War event

We don't know much about the Resonating Visions event or the Secret War event (dungeon combat at Dawn Winery), but it's been intimated that Diluc and the Dawn Winery are in danger, and they'll need the Traveler's help to defeat their foes.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Resonating Visions

According to leaks, Hoyoverse will debut the new Diluc skin during this event, dubbed Secret War (probably a placeholder name).

It's a happy day for both Fischl and Diluc mains, as the creators are about to release new skins for each of them.

Aside from the data, leakers have also revealed Diluc's new artwork reference photos.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Diluc skin, Genshin 2.8 Diluc skin, new Genshin Diluc skin, Genshin Diluc skin
Genshin 2.8 Diluc's new skin

We also have Genshin Kazuha Story Quest scheduled for v2.8 along with the Archon Quest & Hangout event.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Kazuha Story Quest - "Acer Palmatum Chapter: Act I"

As per leaks, Kaedehara Kazuha's Story Quest "Acer Palmatum Chapter: Act I" and Shikanoin Heizou's Hangout Event will also be released in Version 2.8.

Other than the skins, players will also be awarded new swords on the completion of the event quests. Genshin_Intel revealed that "A new 4* sword is among the final rewards of Kazuha Chapter I legendary quests. This sword cannot be refined. It is rumored that the sword will gain its name at the end."

Now it's been rumored for a while that the Kazuha banner will coincide with his 2.8 Story Quest, so it is only natural to mark this as "subject to change." However, Genshin Impact 2.8 Kazuha rerun is certainly something that everyone is waiting for, and this Genshin Impact 2.8 Kazuha Story Quest leak is hinting toward the same.

Kazuha who debuted 10 months ago in the game is a 5-star Anemo character. Despite the fact that he didn't get much attention in the past owing to the presence of Venti, the changing dynamic is driving players to rely on DPS Anemo characters like Kazuha. So obviously his rerun is one of the game's most anticipated events.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Hidden Strife [Fischl hangout event] and Heizou hangout event

Earlier, Ubatcha stated that consecutively in 2.7, 2.8, and 3.0, there will be three hangout events in a sequence, and each of these hangout events will be related to a new 4-star and existing character. And Fischl will be linked to the one in the 2.8 update.

Talking about the Genshin 2.8 Heizou hangout event, the recent leaks have revealed the event description. The leaked description of the Genshin 2.8 Heizou hangout event reads:

"The best way to understand someone is by spending time with them, whether they're an old friend or a new acquaintance..."

Genshin Impact 2.8 mini-events

  • Surfpiercer Challenge
  • Reminiscent Regimen
  • Evermotion Mechanical (jigsaw puzzle)

Leaks have likewise revealed what players will have to do in order to complete the Genshin Impact 2.8 mini-games.

  • Surfpiercer Challenge

This Surfpiercer Challenge mini-game is linked to Waverider, and participants will receive special Waverider skills. This appears to be a time-trial challenge in which players must go from point A to point B in a set amount of time while collecting things located along the way.

  • Reminiscent Regimen

This Reminiscent Regimen mini-game can be played solo or in cooperative mode. Convoy, Raid, and Abseil are the three main themes. Players can accomplish numerous events and challenges in single and co-op sessions based on these themes.

Genshin Impact 2.8 skins

We've been getting new skins and outfits for the characters in the game since the 2.4 update, and with version 2.5, HoYoverse introduced the Genshin Impact 2.5 alternate outfit for Amber, Jean, Rosaria, and Mona.

Now, receiving new character skins has been a hot issue in the Genshin community for quite some time, and leakers have said that the Genshin Impact 2.8 update will also include the next Genshin skins.

@Dimbreath stated that there are two new entries for the skins section: one for 5*, another one for 4*. Moreover, files pointing to a Diluc skin with "special effects" have recently been discovered by dataminer and it has been claimed that HoYoverse will also be offering a free 4-star skin, similar to prior cosmetic releases.

As per the revealed new info, a future 2.8 update of Genshin Impact will probably bring another 2 new character skins into the game. These two new Genshin Impact skins are:

  • Genshin Diluc skin
  • Genshin Fischl skin

Although we have no official data, a known Genshin leaker, Ubatcha has revealed the possible Genshin Diluc and Fischl skin names both in English and Chinese. If the leak is to be believed then the names of these new Genshin 2.8 skins are:

  • Diluc skin - "Red Dead of Night"
  • Fischl skin - "Ein Immernachtstraum"

It has been claimed that the name of Fischl skin, "Ein Immernachtstraum" is a German title of Shakespeare's comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Not only the leaks have revealed the Genshin 2.8 skins' name, but the possible artwork has also been leaked.

More information on Diluc skin and Fischl skin leak can be found on our other detailed page.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Weapons leak

The latest leaks revealed that we will see a new Genshin 2.8 weapon in the game - that is currently named "This is a sword".

The new Genshin Impact 2.8 sword initally had "broken" numbers, with a basic ATK of 542 and a secondary ATK of 41.3 percent. The sword's base ATK has been decreased to 510 with the recent nerf, the same as all other 4-star swords with better secondary numbers.

Now although this unknown weapon has yet to be given a proper name, the following are the stats of this new Genshin 2.8 weapon:

  1. Rarity - 4 star
  2. Base ATK - 510
  3. ATK - 41.3%
  4. Passive Rank 1

genshin impact 2.8 weapon, genshin 2.8 weapon, genshin 2.8 new weapon, genshin 2.8 sword, genshin 2.8 leaks
Genshin Impact 2.8 weapon - "This is a sword"(placeholder name)

"When a Normal, Charged, or Plunging Attack hits an opponent, it summons a Hewing Gale, which deals AoE DMG equal to 180% of ATK and increases ATK by 15% for 8 seconds. This effect occurs once every 8 seconds."

Many people assumed that the "This is a Sword" weapon would be a new sword that would defy all of the preceding weapon's attack-to-sub-stat ratio regulations, however, this is not the case.

Unlike some other free weapons gained through event challenges, a fresh leak claims that the new Genshin 2.8 4-star sword is one of the completion awards that players will receive after finishing Kazuha's new Chapter I.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Enemies

So far, Genshin 2.8 leaks have not disclosed any specific new enemies that will appear in the forthcoming update; however, we do know about 2.8 Spiral Abyss, its Floor 11 leyline disorder, and 2.8 spiral abyss blessings.

The 2.8 Spiral Abyss Floor 11 leyline disorder, according to the leaked data, is: "Pyro DMG caused by characters is boosted by 75%."

On the WFP channel, details on three new Genshin 2.8 Abyss Blessing Phases were given. These new 2.8 Abyss Blessings are:

  • Genshin 2.8 Spiral Abyssal Blessing Phase 1

When a character takes the field, they will gain 1 Fortitude stack every 2s. This will increase their ATK by 20%. Max 3 stacks. When characters with 3 Fortitude stacks hit opponents with Charged Attacks, a shockwave will be unleashed at that opponent's position, dealing True DMG. A shockwave can be unleashed in this manner once every 2s. When the character leaves the field, all their Fortitude stacks will be cleared.

  • Genshin 2.8 Spiral Abyssal Blessing Phase 2

When a character triggers Swirl on an opponent, that opponent's DEF is decreased by 12% for 10s. Max 3 stacks. Each stack's duration is counted independently.

  • Genshin 2.8 Spiral Abyssal Blessing Phase 3

After the active character's Normal, Charged, or Plunging Attacks hit opponents, that character's Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack DMG is increased by 12% for 8s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.1s. Max 4 stacks. Each stack's duration is counted independently. This effect will be cleared if the character leaves the field.

These are all of the details that have been revealed thus far regarding the future Genshin Impact 2.8 update, including the release date, characters, banners, maps, new domains, and more.

The data, however, comes from the 2.8 leaks, which are subject to change given that the 2.8 patch still has a long way to go. So, until HoYoverse officially publishes details on Genshin 2.8 update, gamers should take it with a grain of salt.
