This article will walk you through e.gAnything shown during the announcement streamincluding new story content, zones, events and wish banners.
Genshin Impact 2.6: Kamisato Ayato Reveal
Kamisato Ayato, a new Inazuma character added in version 2.6 was also revealed. This hydrosword wielder has some serious Vergil vibes as he washes away enemies with quick slashes and hugely damaging elemental abilities.
In terms of skills, he has several passives. First, Ayato can increase the team’s basic attack damage and gain elemental skill charges over time when not in play.
Ayato can teleport and leave an illusion that will explode after some time. In this mode, his attacks deal bonus physical damage. If it hits, it deals additional damage based on max health.
Finally, when the clone explodes and hits an enemy, swords will rain down in an aoe, weakening enemies for additional damage.
You can learn more about Ayato through a new story mission that will be unlocked with the release of version 2.6. So if you’re tired of fooling around without solid information about this new character, save yourself a few keys ahead of time!
Genshin Impact 2.6: The Abyss
As teased during the 2.5 announcement stream, as part of the narrative in this latest update, we’re heading towards the abyss. West of Liyue, we head underground to explore this new area and find out what the Abyssal Forces are up to.
We see a variety of dangers down in the abyss including a gigantic worm construct that will cause some serious trouble down in the dirt. There’s also something hidden deep in the abyss that’s briefly shown causing havoc – what it is and how to stop it we’ll have to find out when version 2.6 is released.
The Abyss brings with it a new upgradable gadget that acts as the main source of progression down there, as well as some new artifacts to pick up, so those who
Dainsleif will also return – virtually guaranteeing that this patch will have some important narrative implications for the broader Genshin Impact story. Therefore, you should not miss this first adventure into the abyss.
