A recent leak on Reddit has revealed that update 2.4 could bring back one of the fan-favorite limited characters, the Geo polearm user Zhonli. Update 2.4 is expected to arrive on January 5.
Genshin Impact update 2.3 has introduced a brand new banner mechanic which allows players to choose between two limited character banners in the same update cycle. This could be the way that miHoYo decides to introduce banner re-runs in the future since it compensates for the absence of a new five-star character.
A recent post on the Genshin Impact Leaks subreddit has revealed that update 2.4 will bring another double banner re-run featuring one of the fan-favorite characters - Zhongli. Character banner re-runs have recently become pretty common in the world of Genshin Impact.
The addition of a new character is probably the most exciting thing a casual Genshin Impact player is looking forward to, especially in the latter stages of the game when there aren't as many quests and events to enjoy. The official Genshin Impact Twitter account has finally revealed the official art for one of the upcoming characters - Shenhe.
A recent update by a beta leaker on the Genshin_Impact_leaks subreddit has revealed that Shenhe could have Energy issues while fighting which could prevent her from fulfilling her damage potential. Her whole kit indicates that she is a support character that thrives on dropping her elemental skill and burst before getting swapped out. These things could still get updated considering that she's currently in the 2.4 beta phase.
