The first Genshin Impact (Free) collaboration began in version 2.1 with Sony’s Horizon Zero Dawn bringing Aloy into the world of Genshin Impact on PlayStation platforms initially. Details for the collaboration are here. As mentioned before, Aloy was initially obtainable only on PS4 and PS5 but will be available on iOS, Android, and PC platforms with the 2.2 update. Over the weekend, miHoYo revealed Genshin Impact version 2.2 ‘Into the Perilous Labyrinth of Fog’ set for October 13th on all platforms. This update brings the last of the six major islands of Inazuma, a new playable character Thoma, new challenges, mini-games, and more. The last island, Tsurumi, is covered in fog and features Rifthounds and Rifthound Whelps. Watch the Genshin Impact 2.2 special stream below:
Thoma who debuted in Genshin Impact through the Inazuma story will be a new 4 star playable character featuring Pyro Vision and a polearm weapon. Hu Tao returns in the second Event Wish in 2.2. For events, Labyrinth Warriors is a new event where players can enter a mystic domain in Inazuma with Childe and Xinyan. The concert I was looking forward to also took place over the weekend.
