Genshin Impact: Yelan's Release Date, According To Leaks

Genshin Impact Yelan's Release Date, According To Leaks Yelan Gameplay

Although the release of Genshin Impact 2.7 has been delayed indefinitely, leaks and rumors continue to circulate regarding Yelan, a new playable character arriving in Version 2.7. Genshin Impact officially announced two upcoming characters, Yelan and Kuki Shinobu, a few days before the release of Version 2.6. Yelan is a 5-star Hydro user who wields a bow, whereas Kuki Shinobu is a 4-star Electro user. Both characters had their character models leaked ahead of the official announcement, one of Genshin Impact\’s many prevalent leaks.
Yelan is described as a mysterious, solitary person who allegedly works for the Ministry of Civil Affairs, despite rarely appearing at work. Mystery surrounds Yelan\’s true identity, which has yet to be revealed. Many Genshin Impact characters describe Yelan in their voice lines, describing her mysterious and unpredictable nature. Yanfei even expresses fear of getting on the wrong side of Yelan. Keqing provides insight into Yelan\’s background, stating that Yelan\’s ancestors used to serve the Qixing, presumably a duty Yelan has since taken on.

A recent leak from reputable Genshin Impact leaker, Ubatcha1, stated that Yelan\’s release date is currently May 31, 2022, in the game data. If this is Yelan\’s actual release date, it would indicate that Genshin Impact Version 2.7 will also arrive on this date. According to the leak, Yelan\’s Banner will run side by side with the second rerun of Genshin Impact\’s Xiao Banner. The 4-star characters accompanying 5-star Xiao and Yelan are allegedly Barbara, Yanfei, and Noelle.

Genshin Impact Yelan's Release Date, According To Leaks Yelan Preview

Though Yelan\’s release date still remains speculative, Genshin Impact players were treated to the first glimpse of Yelan in-game, thanks to a Genshin Impact World Quest added in Version 2.6. During the \”Chasm Spelunkers\” World Quest, part of the \”Chasm Delvers\” series of quests players must undertake to unlock The Chasm\’s Underground Mines, Yelan makes a brief appearance, though her face is not shown. In a cutscene, the Traveler and Paimon walk into the mines and see a mysterious figure jump down and run away. The camera zooms in on Yelan\’s feet as she lands, showing the distinctive clothing belonging to Yelan\’s character model in Genshin Impact, giving away her identity.

If the information revealed in the recent Genshin Impact leak is correct, Genshin Impact Version 2.7 is less than two weeks away, bringing with it Yelan as a new playable 5-star character. As Yelan is a Hydro user that wields a bow, like fellow 5-star Tartaglia/Childe, it\’ll be interesting to see how she compares. Additionally, Yelan\’s arrival follows the arrival of Kamisato Ayato in version 2.6, also a 5-star Hydro user, so comparisons between the two are inevitable. Xiao\’s rerun is more surprising, as his last rerun was only a few versions earlier as a double rerun banner alongside 5-star character Shenhe for the first half of Genshin Impact\’s 2.4 update. If Xiao is indeed getting a second rerun banner in 2.7, it suggests he plays a significant role in the upcoming storyline.
