KEY POINTS

  • "Genshin Impact" players look forward to introduction of new characters in updates
  • The next update is anticipated to roll out in mid-February
  • "Genshin Impact" 2.5 will reportedly feature new phases of Spiral Abyss

Chinese game developer MiHoYo released Update 2.4 last week but it looks like insiders have already compiled the list of things that fans could look forward to in the "Genshin Impact" 2.5 version, including the list of new enemies, the phases in the upcoming Spiral Abyss, character banners and a lot more.

New Enemies

One of the most exciting events "Genshin Impact" players look forward to in every update is the introduction of new characters. But, while these new characters featured in the character banners are interesting, the arrival of new and stronger enemies can be just exciting.

According to a leak posted on Reddit, the new enemy coming to the game will supposedly have its own category just like the Treasure Hoarders of the Fatui. The three units will most definitely have weapons featuring three different elements namely Pyro, Hydro and Cryo.

Another industry insider also claimed in a separate leak that players will soon have the option to fight the Raiden Shogun.

Character Banners

"Genshin Impact" 2.5 version will reportedly introduce several new characters including the five-star character Yae Miko. MiHoYo finally confirmed the character's existence on Dec. 31, 2021, but failed to reveal her release window.

A leak on Reddit recently shared Yae Miko's weapon -- an Electro element catalyst for ranged attacks. Other leaks point to Kiku Shinobu arriving in the upcoming update. The four-star Electro-based character is the sidekick of Arataki Itoo.

Another rumor about the next update is the rerun of the five-star polearm Raiden Shogun, who is also an electro character.

Spiral Abyss Stages

Aside from the new enemy and the new characters, insiders also revealed that "Genshin Impact" 2.5 will feature several changes to Spiral Abyss. Based on the leak available below, it looks like the Spiral Abyss will favor electro characters in the game. 

MiHoYo has not yet said anything about Update 2.5 and considering that the game's version is set to roll out sometime in mid-February, a lot of things could still change.

Nothing is official about all of these leaks yet, so, fans and players are advised to take this latest set of leaks as highly speculative at this stage.
