Genshin Impact 1.5 trailer sheds light on things to come

miHoYo has rolled out April 28 as the date for the new update, and version 1.5 is going to kick-start the storyline of Geo archon once again. By the looks of things, gamers are in for a treat. The trailer also showcased new characters, Eula and Yanfei, who will be added soon.

On the other hand, Yanfei will be added as a new 4-star Pyro catalyst user, who can offer Pyro application. The trailer also contained a peculiar little girl with unmatched powers. Gamers will also see a new weekly boss in the God of Geovshaps, ‘Azhdaha’, who will offer unique item drops.

This weekly boss will definitely be a part of Zhongli’s storyline, and it will play a key role in the game, as well. Azhadaha will be a master of multiple elements, and it will pose a dire challenge to the travelers.
