Yae Miko will be the only 5-star character for the first half of Genshin Impact 2.5 banners. Her release date is the same as the version update, which is February 16, 2022.

A 5-star Catalyst known as Kagura's Verity will also debut in the first weapon banner of that update, and its effect perfectly complements Yae Miko's kit. The release date is the same as Yae Miko's.

Raiden Shogun and Kokomi will have reruns in the second half, which should occur on March 9, 2022. It will be both characters' first rerun in the game.

Three Realms Gateway Offering is a brand new event that will have players exploring an alternate version of Enkanomiya. They will use a new gadget known as the Bokuso Box to resist darkness and other general abilities (such as dealing with specific enemies).

This event will last for all of Genshin Impact 2.5. One of the primary rewards from the event is a 4-star Catalyst, known as Oathsworn Eye.

Another major event is Divine Ingenuity, which includes Travelers creating their own Domains. Other players can also visit these Domains to try them out, so it will be an event for creative gamers to enjoy.

If Travelers ever wanted to become a bartender, then they should like Of Drink A-Dreaming. It's a new event where players will serve non-alcoholic drinks to patrons. It involves selecting ingredients, mixing the drink, and selecting a quantity of either a Small Cup, Medium Cup, or Large Cup.
