The Genshin Impact 2.7 livestream is quickly approaching, and it\’s expected to reveal quite a bit about the story moving forward from Inazuma to Sumeru. As with most Special Program livestreams for the game, it will also officially confirm new playable characters, weapons, and events. Although no official date and times have been given yet, it\’s fairly easy to predict when the Genshin Impact 2.7 livestream will occur based on the broadcasts of previous updates.
Typically, Genshin Impact livestreams occur a week and a half before the actual update arrives in-game. With only a few exceptions, these have occurred on Fridays – and usually in the early morning hours for U.S. audiences. If this trend continues, this means the Genshin Impact 2.7 livestream should happen on April 29, 2022, at 8 am ET (5 am PT).
These livestreams have most recently happened live on the official Genshin Impact Twitch channel, before being uploaded later in the day to the game\’s official YouTube channel. In addition to revealing new content ahead of updates, the livestreams have proven popular because they offer free codes to redeem in Genshin Impact for Primogems and other useful materials. While most of the information regarding Genshin Impact 2.7 hasn\’t been officially announced, a number of leaks and rumors hint at what fans can expect to see in the next update.
What To Expect In Genshin Impact 2.7 – Leaks & Rumors
Thus far, two new playable characters have been officially revealed – Yelan and Kuki Shinobu. Both characters are expected to arrive in the Version 2.7 update. Leaks for both characters had started to appear online before HoYoverse officially revealed their images on social media. The leaks for Yelan in Genshin Impact were especially prominent. Further leaks suggest rerun Banners for Itto and Kazuha, although the latter has been rumored for a rerun for the last few updates already.
With Version 3.0 content presumably releasing this summer, much of the storyline in Genshin Impact 2.7 is expected to shed more light on Sumeru – the Dendro nation that will be the primary setting of all 3.0 content. This has been a natural progression as the main story in Inazuma begins to wrap up and prepares the Traveler for new adventures. According to multiple Genshin Impact leaks, however, there will be a 2.8 update before 3.0 releases – so players shouldn\’t expect to learn too many of Sumeru\’s secrets just yet.
If previous Genshin Impact livestreams are an indication, viewers of the Special Program should also expect to learn about new events, Artifacts, weapons, and even Domains. Still, the most attention is usually on the new playable characters and free codes. Until an official announcement is made, the most likely release date and time for the Genshin Impact 2.7 livestream is April 29, 2022, at 8 am ET.
