What to expect from the Genshin Impact 2.2 livestream
As usual, players are most excited to learn more about the upcoming banners in update 2.2. The ongoing anniversary rewards and events have already showered the community with Primogems and Intertwined Fates, and many players might be saving these resources for the future.
There's a strong possibility that Childe and Hu Tao will be getting their re-run banners in Genshin Impact update 2.2.
In addition, Thoma is expected to arrive as a four-star Pyro polearm user whose kit might revolve around providing shields. Having said that, banners in Genshin Impact are always subject to change, and players must take the leaks with a pinch of salt.
Lastly, the final Inazuma region called Tsurumi island will most likely be available with patch 2.2. Leaked footage on r/Genshin_Impact_Leaks contains Thoma strolling on the island for almost 10 minutes.
From the looks of it, Tsurumi island also has a unique theme like the other Inazuma islands. The open world of Genshin Impact is slowly tuning out to be its biggest attraction, while new characters are constantly getting surrounded by controversies.
