The most anticipated special program will premiere this coming Friday. Players will finally get a sneak peek of the upcoming character reruns and new content.

Genshin Impact 2.6 overview: What players can expect to see in the live stream

Phase-1 Banners

The 2.5 Special Program has already confirmed that Kamisato Ayato will have its concurrent banner in phase-1 of version 2.6. A few days ago, Lumie, a reliable leaker, posted a tweet with an image of Kamisato Ayato and Venti with an Elegy for the End edited on his hand.

The weapon banners of phase-1 will include Ayato’s signature weapon Haran Tsukishiro Futsu and Venti’s signature weapon, Elegy for the End. The four-star characters on the banner are yet to be confirmed, so players will have to wait to find out about this in the Genshin Impact 2.6 live stream.

Phase-2 Banners

Can't deny the possibility of phase 2 in 2.6- Phase 1: Ayato + Venti- Phase 2: (only) Ayaka ??

A double character re-run is expected to run in phase-2 of the upcoming update. Genshin Impact developers have a pattern of putting characters in the live stream that are most likely to be featured in the banners.

This gives fans hope that they might see Kamisato Ayaka in phase-2 for those who want to pull for a Cryo character. The other character having a rerun alongside Ayaka has not been confirmed, and players will have to watch the Special Program for the character reveal.

The Chasm

The live stream also revealed a new type of enemy called the Ruin Serpent. Players can expect to get more insights about The Chasm in the 2.6 Special Program.
