The introduction of a new region is probably the most exciting thing a regular Genshin Impact player is looking forward to, especially when there aren't as many available quests in the latter stages of the game. The last couple of updates have brought the long-awaited Inazuma islands, and it seems as though miHoYo is not planning to stop there.

Genshin Impact update 2.4 will bring two brand new playable characters, the long-awaited Shenhe and Yun Jin. Both of these characters have been announced on the official Genshin Impact Twitter account which is miHoYo's way of confirming new characters for the following update.

Update 2.3 has not even arrived yet and players are already hyped about the most recent Genshin Impact 2.4 beta leaks. One of the most credible Genshin Impact leakers by the name Genshin Intel has tweeted a content overview list for update 2.4. Even though there is a lot of expectations and hype surrounding Shenhe and Yun Jin, the addition of a brand new region by the name Enkanomiya surely stole the show. The new region Enkanomiya has been leaked a couple of days ago but the recent beta leaks pretty much confirm that these rumors are true.

As mentioned before, the new update will bring two fan-favorite characters, Yun Jin and Shenhe. Both of these characters are tied heavily to Liyue which means that they will most likely not be a part of the same banner cycle that will introduce the new region. This could also mean that Yun Jin and Shenhe will arrive at on the same banner which is great news for players that want to add both of them to their roster. According to the lore, Yun Jin is a prestigious dancer, singer, and brewer who works at the popular Heyu Tea House. When it comes to her rarity there is no official information but recent rumors hint that Yun Jin could be a four-star character.

There still isn't any new information on what the second banner might bring. It will most likely include another double banner re-run just like it was the case with update 2.3. Previous leaks have been hinting that the 2.4 double banner re-run will bring two popular DPS characters, Xiao and Ganyu. According to miHoYo's usual update schedule, Genshin Impact update 2.4 should arrive around January 5, 2022.

Genshin Impact is now available on Mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5. A Switch version is in development.
