What to expect from the Genshin Impact 2.0 live stream

The Genshin Impact version 2.0 update will be discussed in detail throughout the broadcast. It will most likely include Ayaka, Sayu, and Yoimiya, who may have been confirmed as the 2.0 update characters.

There will undoubtedly be more information on the Inazuma region and the events that will take place in 2.0.

New characters

Not including Kaedehara Kazuha, Genshin Impact revealed three new characters on Twitter in early June: Yoimiya, Kamisato Ayaka & Sayu.

While miHoYo never explicitly stated that they would be playable in-game, they did mention their visions and constellation names, making it highly possible for them to be playable characters.

Electro Traveler

Inazuma will provide a new Electro battle style for Genshin Impact's main character, the Traveler. Players have long suspected a new move set alongside the new Electro region because Geo and Anemo Travelers have unique kits.

Disclaimer: Electro Traveler's participation in Genshin Impact has not yet been confirmed. By the time they reach the end of their journey, any aspect of Electro Traveler's gameplay could have changed.

With the upcoming Genshin Impact 2.0 live stream, gamers will get to know whether the playable Electro Traveler will be released in the next version or not.
