Genshin Impact has been one of the best games of 2020, which is quite a feat when its announcement first resulted in an angry gamer smashing their PS4 console. While it has been a blast since its launch, lots of people are foaming at the mouth thanks to the upcoming update 1.2. Some people are asking who are the new version 1.2 characters, and here you’ll discover who the new playable characters are by finding a brief overview of Ganyu and the Albedo banner.

In addition to new cutesy anime combatants to play with, the upcoming update for Genshin Impact also unlocks the Dragonspine area. Not only that, but there will also be fresh equipment, unique artifact sets, and new events such as the Chalk Prince and The Dragon which will immediately start and then conclude on January 5th.

While there’s plenty to look forward to, below you’ll discover what you need to know about the new playable characters who will be added to the game via version 1.2.

Who are the new characters for Genshin Impact update 1.2?

The new playable characters for Genshin Impact update 1.2 are Albedo and Ganyu.

These new playable characters for Genshin Impact update 1.2 can be seen in the Chalk Prince and the Dragon  trailer.

Albedo and Ganyu are the only people listed as new characters in miHoYo’s blog post, and the five-star Albedo will have a huge drop-rate boost during the Secretum Secretorum event.

In addition to the aforementioned fresh playable combatants, update 1.2 will also bring about the Dragonspine area which will also provide the unique mechanic, Subzero Climate.

This will see combatants begin to lose HP when sheer cold reaches its limit, and the unlocked area will also include a domain called Peak in Vindagnyr.

Genshin Impact Albedo and Ganyu

Ganyu and Albedo are confirmed as new playable characters for Genshin Impact update 1.2.

Albedo is a Geo-type in Genshin Impact, meanwhile Ganyu acts as a Cryo.

The former wields a sword and is said to be a genius known as the Kreideprinz; he is the Chief Alchemist and Captain of the Investigation Team of the Knights of Favonius.

Meanwhile, the latter wields a bow, and is the Secretary at Yuehai Pavilion. Not only that, but the blood of the qilin – an illuminated beast – flows within her vains.
