- Xianyun’s ability kit may bring benefits to older characters like Diluc, and Xianyun will feature prominently during the Lantern Rite event in Version 4.4.
The latest Special Preview Program for Genshin Impact has revealed an ambitious slate of new content coming in Version 4.4, which also includes skins for Ganyu, Shenhe, and Xingqiu, as well as confirming the event banners for Xianyun, Nahida, Xiao, and Yae Miko. Chenyu Vale in Genshin Impact is finally making its debut, as the new zone will bridge the gap between Fontaine and Liyue, and connect the two nations together. In addition to exploring its breathtaking sights, Genshin Impact players will also be able to aid the local adeptus in healing the land, and even challenge a new world boss.
Version 4.4 will introduce Gaming and Xianyun to Genshin Impact, both of whom will be available in the Event Banners during the first half of the patch. While some players remain skeptical whether Xianyun’s ability kit will find its place in the meta, the Plunging Attack gameplay that it enables should bring a new benefit to older characters such as Diluc. Xianyun will also receive a Story Quest in Version 4.4, and will feature prominently during the Lantern Rite event.
Genshin Impact Leak Hints at Birthday Banners and Spiral Abyss Changes
A new Genshin Impact leak gives information about upcoming changes, suggesting that the game will soon offer birthday banners for characters.
However, the Lantern Rite is also bringing alternative skins for Ganyu and Shenhe in Genshin Impact, which players will be able to purchase at a discount during Version 4.4. Furthermore, Xingqiu’s outfit will be obtainable for free by completing the Flagship Event of the patch, with a similar method of acquisition as Kaeya’s outfit from Version 3.8. Though Shenhe and Ganyu won’t be making their rerun in Version 4.4, the Event Banners in the patch feature two beloved characters that can help players push through the Spiral Abyss.

Though not officially confirmed, players who decide to save their Primogems in Version 4.4 will be able to wish on Chiori in Genshin Impact Version 4.5, where she is set to release as a playable 5-Star Geo Sword character. With an expected release date of January 31st, 2024, Genshin Impact fans won’t need to wait too long to jump into Chenyu Vale firsthand and explore all that Version 4.4 has to offer.
