Genshin Impact developer miHoYo, under a global brand of HoYoverse, recently revealed many details about the upcoming Version 3.0.
Most pressingly, the new update for Genshin Impact is set to release in just a matter of days on August 24th.
The popular free-to-play video game has shared the playable characters that will be part of the next update, Version 3.1, ahead of that -- including the announcement of a previously unrevealed playable character.
More specifically, it would appear that the Electro-attuned Cyno, Hydro-attuned Nilou, and Hydro-attuned Candace will all be playable as part of Genshin Impact Version 3.1.
Version 3.0 will add the new land of Sumeru, west of Liyue, as well as new characters and the long-awaited Dendro element.
Genshin Impact Version 2.8 is currently available and brought the new character Shikanoin Heizou, new events, outfits, and more.
More broadly, Genshin Impact itself is available, free to play, for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and mobile devices.
