There are three banners for Genshin Impact update 2.3 with two reruns and two new additions to the game’s roster.

Starting from November 24th, fans should be greeted to separate character event wishes for both Albedo and Eula. The Albedo rerun wasn’t a surprise thanks to leaks, but the return of Eula came out-of-nowhere and is pleasant news.

Then, from December 14th, there will be an Arataki Itto banner which features Gorou. Arataki Itto has wowed fans since day one because of his chiselled abs and blood-red eyes, meanwhile Gorou is someone we’ve been acquainted with before.


One of the new weapon rewards for the game’s forthcoming version is a new 4-star Sword Cinnabar Spindle.

You will get this weapon as one of the rewards for the Shadows Amidst Snowstorms event. Its preview website is now live and the developers have also provided an overview on the PlayStation Blog.

The event comes with a new story in Dragonspine involving a winter training camp and the return of Albedo and Eula. And, to get rewards like the new sword, you will need to complete three challenges: agility training, tracker training, and combat training.
