Shadows Amidst Snowstorms Update Coming to Genshin Impact

Do You Want to Slay a Snowman?

There is some topical content coming to Genshin Impact in a couple of weeks. The 2.3 update Shadows Amidst Snowstorms will add more content to the area of the map called Dragonspine, where players face extreme cold weather effects.

In the Summer, players were able to hit the beach, but this time, they will be able to do things wintery, like build a snowman. This trip to Dragonspine is not all fun and games though. There will be deep secrets to uncover under this blanket of frost.

There are also new missions, dungeons, and a mysterious and stylish new vendor. The trailer for update 2.3 gives a little taste of what is to come.

Aside from the content in Dragonspine, two new characters will be available to play as. They are called Gorou and Arrataki Itto. They are both Geo-element characters from Inazuma. Gorou is described as “A loyal and brave general of Watatsumi island. Born with a beast-like fighting intuition and tenacious will, he can find a way to victory even in the most critical moments.”

Arrataki Itto is the head of the Arrataki Gang and has garnered many titles, such as The First, The Supreme, The Strongest, and The Oni Sumo King.  He is described as “Fast as the wind and mighty as thunder, he is an intrepid man with Oni blood running through his veins.

Shadows Amidst Snowstorms will go live on November 24th. Genshin Impact is a free-to-play game available on PC, PS4, and PS5, with a Nintendo Switch release planned for the future.
