Genshin Impact has updated to version 2.2, introducing the sixth and final island of Inazuma, a new character banner and one for weapons, an event and time, two hangout events, and much more. Although this is a minor update, the amount of added content is quite impressive, and all fans of the MiHoYo game will surely be happy to know that 600 free Primogems are waiting for them.
The highlight of Update 2.2 is Tsurumi Island, the last of the six islands that make up the Inazuma archipelago. As well as the island of Seirai, it is a wild and abandoned area, made even more dangerous by the presence of a strange fog and a new type of enemy, the Rifthounds. Ghost hounds can ignore the shields and inflict the malus “corruption,” which slowly lowers the HP of all party characters.
In addition to the new island and the story mission, update 2.2 also introduces the Childe banner in its second rerun, proposed together with Chongyun, Yanfei, and Ningguang. The banner will remain active for three weeks, at the end of which it will be the turn of Hu Tao’s rerun, proposed together with the new character Pyro Thoma.
Other novelties include two new Hangout events, appointments with the characters, Thoma and Sayu, and five timed events that will reward players with Primogems and other resources. The first event, Labyrinth Warriors, allows you to get a copy of Xinyan for free, while other events will arrive over the next few weeks, including the popular Ley Line Overflow, a gardening event, and a musical one.
