Genshin Impact Version 2.1 coming Sept 1 with Aloy, Baal, Kokomi, and Kujou Sara
Developer miHoYo has officially announced the Genshin Impact Version 2.1 release date as September 1 which means we should be expecting new content for the game and some new gameplay mechanics as well as three new Inazuma native characters namely Raiden Shogun aka Baal, Kokomi and Kujou Sara.
The new update will also bring in two more major islands for the land of Inazuma and the grand finale for the main story involving the Traveler against the Electro Archon Baal / Raiden Shogun. Mihoyo has also promised great rewards via special seasonal events to also celebrate the first year anniversary of Genshin Impact.
One of the freebies players will be getting is the special “crossover character” Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn.

With the final chapter of the Archon Quest in Inazuma, players will soon be able to check Watatsumi Island and Seirai Island. Watatsumi Island is the home of the resistance forces, the people who want to take down the Electro Archon down a peg
Seirai Island is the home of the perpetual storms, something that made Inazuma such an interesting place before Genshin Impact version 2.0 was released.
More boss enemies, including the Hydro Hypostasis, Thunder Manifestation, and the new Trounce Domain Boss Signora also await players ahead.
Let’s also not forget the three new Inazuma characters that will be added in version 2.1 namely the Raiden Shogun herself who is a five-star Electro polearm character…
There’s also five-star character Sangonomiya Kokomi, the Divine Priestess of Watatsumi Island and also the de facto leader of the resistance. This hydro catalyst character can dish out a great deal of healing to teammates.
And lastly we have Kujou Sara.
This lady is the decisive general of the Tenryou Commission and has a solid Electro element ranged attacks through her bow plus she’s also able to buff teammates while in battle.
Outside Inazuma, the Moonchase Festival is coming in the following season. This is a time when friends and families in Liyue gather around, make a toast, and enjoy local delicacies every autumn. During the festival, players will reunite with Keqing and Xiangling, cooking and tasting local foods and recipes, and explore the origins of this ancient traditional festival in Liyue Harbor. Those who’re fond of treasures will be glad to embark on a big treasure hunt across Liyue, Mondstadt, and Dragonspine in the Moonlight Seeker event. By participating, players can get rewards and exchange for useful resources, including the new four-star claymore Luxurious Sea-Lord to max refinement. In addition, players may also claim in-game rewards and up to 10 Intertwined Fate in the new daily login event.
Fishing will also be introduced with Version 2.1. Players can soon go angling for a variety of fishes across the continent of Teyvat, and they can be used to produce fish meat, or exchanged for rewards and new fishing rods from the Fishing Association. With the Pool of Sapphire Grace, a new furnishing added to the Serenitea Pot system, players can also raise Ornamental Fish in their personal realm.
Starting from Version 2.1, the first crossover character “Savior From Another World” Aloy will be joining as a free five-star character. Players who have reached Adventure Rank 20 or above can receive her either during Version 2.1 on PlayStation® or during Version 2.2 on all platforms.
