Xinyan is one of several confirmed characters for the 1.1 update of Genshin Impact. While new characters like Diona and Tartaglia are already in the game, Xinyan and Zhongli have yet to arrive. This is most likely a clever strategy from miHoYo to keep interest in the game between updates, since releasing all the characters at the same time would end up creating a lack of new content between Genshin Impact\’s patches.
In the new character demo for Xinyan, she\’s shown sporting a guitar and lots of rockstar moves. Although the guitar is used for special Elemental moves, Xinyan mostly sticks to using claymores in battle. She also speaks with a thick American Southern accent, and uses her Pyro skills to burn through enemy ranks. She\’s a firecracker, both in personality and combat skills – and fans will surely love her.
The main updates for Genshin Impact are scheduled for six-week intervals, with Patch 1.2 set for December 23rd. Since Zhongli and Xinyan are releasing as part of the 1.1 update, it means they\’ll most likely appear on December 2nd as new playable characters.
New characters are always coming to Genshin Impact, but right now excitement is incredibly high for Zhongli and Xinyan. So far, miHoYo hasn\’t given an official release date for either character. However, both of them should be coming to the game in early December, so fans shouldn\’t have to wait too much longer for them to arrive.
