Genshin Impact\’s Version 2.2 update drops another decent helping of things to see and do in the free-to-play game. As always, miHoYo still shows no signs of stopping as it moves towards Genshin Impact 2.3 and beyond. The developer recently announced playable Genshin Impact character Arataki Itto, who will be added to the game sometime in the future. The mace-wielding gang leader will is not part of Version 2.2, but chances are high he will arrive in a near-future update.
New and old Genshin Impact players have a fair amount new content to tear through now that the 2.2 update is live. The island of Inazuma has been expanded once again, allowing adventurers to explore the stormy island of Tsurumi. Thoma also looks to be an interesting addition to the Genshin Impact playable character roster, focusing on area-of-effect fire damage that will hopefully make him useful in a fight. And, of course, a duo of fresh hangout events are bound to be some players\’ favorite new addition in Genshin Impact 2.2
