The Irodori Festival is a new event coming to version 2.6 that will take place in the region of Inazuma. The festival is held to celebrate the borders of Inazuma finally opening to other nations. Players will see many familiar faces such as Albedo, Xingqiu, Klee, and many others who will show up in Inazuma.

The event is sure to bring forth many mini-events for players to enjoy. This includes an event where players can have proper sword fights with NPCs, a photography minigame, and much more.

Kamisato Ayato will finally debut in the 2.6 update as a five-star. The Hydro Sword character can be used as an off-field or on-field damage dealer based on his elemental skill and elemental burst.

Kamisato Ayato will be available on the phase-1 banners of the 2.6 version alongside Venti and Kamisato Ayaka, who will rerun in the second half of the update in Genshin Impact.

3) New region of The Chasm unlocked


The new update will uncover The Chasm and will allow players to explore different regions within it. It will be divided into different parts called the Surface and the Underground Mines.

The underground regions of The Chasm are too dark to travel and players will have to use a gadget called a Lumenstone Adjuvent/catalyst to illuminate the area.

4) New enemies in The Chasm

Players will face new enemies in the upcoming Genshin Impact 2.6 update. These enemies include:

  • Ruin Serpent
  • Floating Fungus
  • Black Serpent Knight: Windcutter

The Black Serpent Knight: Windcutter has a similar build to a Shadowy Husk, able to increase their speed when they hit a character protected by shields. In this comparison, Ruin Serpent and Floating Fungus are new types of enemies introduced in The Chasm. While the former is a new type of boss that drops Geo-based materials and Runic Fang, the latter is a new type of flying enemy.

5) New story quests
