- Genshin Impact Version 4.5 will introduce a third limited banner featuring Albedo, along with other Mondstadt characters like Klee or Venti.
- There is speculation that the new banner may have a separate Pity system and feature 5-Star weapons alongside Albedo, potentially using a new Fate currency.
- The implementation of the new banner should be carefully executed to satisfy the community, as players hope to obtain characters like Eula or Shenhe without excessive waiting or overly difficult acquisition methods.
Genshin Impact is expected to receive a third limited banner in Version 4.5, with Albedo being one of its featured characters. While the possibility of triple banners in Fontaine was rumored since Sumeru, the exact details of how this concept would be implemented changed over time. Genshin Impact has a growing list of 5-Star characters, and though the introduction of double banners helped keep their reruns at a steady pace, some characters such as Eula or Albedo have started to lag behind compared to Yoimiya or Tartaglia.
Before Genshin Impact‘s Version 4.3 banners changed at the last minute, Albedo and Itto were expected to feature alongside Raiden Shogun and Navia. As a result, many fans began to wonder when the Chalk Prince would have his return on the Limited Event banners, with many leaks pointing at Version 4.5 as not only having a Mondstadt focus, but also featuring Albedo’s long-awaited rerun.
Rumor: Possible Genshin Impact Leak Reveals Version 4.5 Banner Characters
A reliable leak reveals that Genshin Impact Version 4.5 may feature a long awaited character on its Event Banners, as well as a few surprise reruns.
Genshin Impact Version 4.5 Will Release A Third ‘Mondstadt’ Banner Featuring Albedo
HXG, GenshinMeow, and UncleX have all confirmed that a third banner would be making its debut in Version 4.5, with the currently known details of its implementation posted on the Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit. The lineup of Genshin Impact characters featured in Version 4.5 is expected to be: Chiori, Itto, Kazuha, and Neuvillette. However, Albedo is all but confirmed to usher in a new banner type for Genshin Impact, which leakers suspect will feature Mondstadt characters such as Klee, Eula, or even Venti.
It’s unclear whether the new banner will use a separate Pity system compared to limited character banners, but considering that the leak sources suspect certain 5-Star weapons will feature alongside Albedo, the possibility is there. A new type of Fate currency is also on the cards, though some Genshin Impact players are hoping that the new banner will have a lower Pity to compensate. What is confirmed, however, is that the Albedo banner in Version 4.5 will feature other Mondstadt characters, and will use a system similar to the Epitomized Path from Genshin Impact‘s weapon banner.
Given the recent Genshin Impact controversy, HoYoverse should probably try to implement a version of the new banner that the community will be happy with. A Mondstadt banner in Version 4.5, followed by a Liyue banner in Version 4.6, would allow players to obtain characters such as Eula or Shenhe without having to wait for over a year. However, if the method of acquiring these characters and their constellations is too unforgiving compared to the limited banners, it’s quite likely that fans will ignore the system altogether.
