HoYoverse is back with impeccable timing for another Genshin Impact update. Version 2.8 Summer Fantasia is coming on July 13 and brings many new areas and storylines to explore, but also includes brand-new character Shikanoin Heizou, the first ever melee catalyst user in the game. You also have a great opportunity to grab Fischl for free, and redeem Fischl’s new outfit via the Resonating Visions event.

The coming update will start the big Summertime Odyssey seasonal event in the company of Fischl, Xinyan, Kaedahara Kazuhaand Mona. The Golden Apple Archipelago has undergone a drastic makeover, adding new realms, extensive exploration gameplay, more treasure chest, and unexpected storylines about the Traveler’s companions. Those who experience these thrilling adventures may then have a chance to recruit the four-star playable character Fischl for free.




Diluc, Kaedehara Kazuha, and the new playable four-star Shikanoin Heizou will receive events and stories of their own. Diluc will receive a new outfit featuring a distinctive look, new idle animation, and new effects, available in-store at a limited-time discount. The outfit also carries its back story that can be found in the “Hidden Strife” challenge event. Another character Kaedehara Kazuha is also ready to reveal more about himself with the first chapter of his Story Quest opening soon. Besides, his friend Shikanoin Heizou, a young genius crime solver for the Tenryou Commission, will premiere in Version 2.8. And players are welcome to join Heizou in being a detective for a day in his Hangout Event.

In combat, Shikanoin Heizou is noteworthy for being the first melee catalyst user in the game. He can deal Ameno damage with powerful strikes and kicks, and he can even cause extra elemental damage to enemies affected by Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro. Heizou will be available in the Event Wishes of Kaedehara Kazuha’s and Klee’s rerun in the early phase of Version 2.8. Yoimiya’s Event Wish will be available in the later phase of the update.
