- The potnetial Genshin Impact limited characters for Version 4.5 may have leaked.
- Chiori is expected to join Genshin Impact in Version 4.5 as a 5-Star Geo Sword character, but the other accompanying 5-Stars remain unknown. Rumors suggest Albedo and Itto may make a comeback.
- Version 4.5 is anticipated to have a smaller update focused on Mondstadt and be Geo-heavy, with Chiori leading the way. The leaked lineup includes Chiori, Itto, Kazuha, Neuvillette, and Albedo.
There is a high likelihood that Genshin Impact players can know which limited characters are coming in Version 4.5, as a reliable source in its community leaked the full lineup in a recent post. An important thing to note is that Version 4.5 is expected to bring Chiori to Genshin Impact as a 5-Star Geo Sword character, but the other 5-Stars that will be accompanying Chiori have remained a mystery up until now. Rumors of Albedo and Itto’s rerun began to crystallize among Genshin Impact fans, but the fourth slot was shrouded in pure speculation.
A logical assumption was that either Shenhe or Ganyu would join the Event Banners in Version 4.5, given that Version 4.4 released new skins for the two Genshin Impact characters. However, a recent leak suggests that HoYoverse has something else in mind for Version 4.5. Not only is it meant to be a smaller update, with a focus on Mondstadt through its Flagship Event, but it’s also slated to be a Geo-heavy patch, with Chiori leading the way.
Genshin Impact 4.5 Leak Teases Upcoming Events
A new Genshin Impact leak reveals information about four new events that will be released in the version 4.5 update later this year.
The source of the leak is Randialos, who possesses recent credibility through correctly sharing the banners for Version 3.8 and Version 4.0, and it puts the full lineup of Genshin Impact characters coming in Version 4.5 as thus: Chiori, Itto, Kazuha, Neuvillette, and Albedo. Given that Event Banners come in pairs, Randialos explains that Albedo would have a separate banner for himself, which lends further credibility to earlier leaks that suggested HoYoverse would be adding a new type of banner in Version 4.5.
What makes the Albedo situation in Version 4.5 so fascinating is that instead of birthday banners coming to Genshin Impact, it would seem that HoYoverse is going forward with a separate banner themed around the Flagship Event of a patch. Though it remains to be seen if Albedo will be the sole 5-Star option on the new banner type in Version 4.5, chances are that the featured 4-Star lineup will also differ from the regular Event Banners.
Leaked Genshin Impact Version 4.5 Banner Characters
- Chiori – 5-Star Geo Sword
- Itto – 5-Star Geo Claymore
- Kazuha – 5-Star Anemo Sword
- Neuvillette – 5-Star Hydro Catalyst
- Albedo – 5-Star Geo Sword
Much like with Raiden Shogun and Kujou Sara, it can safely be assumed that Gorou will feature alongside Itto in the Event Banner. While players were hoping that Neuvillette would have his first rerun a bit further down the line, Sumeru’s banners had a similar cadence when it came to its limited 5-Star characters, with Cyno and Nahida rerunning only four updates after their debut. Neuvillette is a powerful Genshin Impact character, and Kazuha is a premium Support option for a wide variety of teams.
If Genshin Impact players don’t feel too strongly about the current lineup for Version 4.4, stocking up on Primogems during the Lantern Rite patch would give them a respectable amount of funds by the time Neuvillette and Kazuha have their rerun. That being said, Arlecchino is coming in Genshin Impact Version 4.6, and spending pulls on a Fatui Harbinger is always worth the investment.
