A recent tweet from a popular Genshin Impact leaker revealed two interesting videos featuring the upcoming characters - Eula and Yanfei. Their release date is not confirmed, but they are expected to be a part of the 1.5 update.
The release of a new character is probably one of the most exciting events in Genshin Impact. After miHoYo confirmed the two banner re-runs for the 1.4 update, we can expect a couple of new characters to get released in 1.5.
Thanks to a credible Genshin Impact leaker called NEP_impact , we have the video of the two upcoming characters - Eula and Yanfei. Eula will apparently be a Cryo element user from the Monstadt region. She is also the Captain of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company.
Yanfei is a four-star Pyro catalyst character from Liyue Harbor. She will be the four-star Pyro catalyst in the game and the eighth Pyro character overall. We can expect her to be a part of Eula's banner.
There is a chance that both of them are five-star characters which would mean that the long-awaited Baizhu will most likely not make it into this update. After weeks of speculation about 1.5, it seems like we're not going to see the Dendro element after all, at least according to another leaker.
We've previously announced that multiple leaks hinted that Baizhu and Yaoyao are going to be released in the next update, and theoretically there is still a chance that we might see him on one of the banners. However, it's highly unlikely that miHoYo introduces four new characters in one update - two four-stars and two five-stars.
When it comes to the release date, there is no official information as of yet. It's safe to say that they will be a part of the 1.5 update which is should go live around April 29.
