Genshin Impact characters Fischl and Keqing will be playable during the crossover

Honkai Impact is set in the modern-day world, that is corrupted by Honkai. Resisting female forces, known as ‘Valkyrie’, have mounted a defense to protect the world and safeguard everything that is important. This event will enable gamers to play as both characters only for the duration of the event. Fischl is not going to be the same character that the community has grown accustomed to.

In Honkai, the combat takes place at a much higher pace and Genshin’s characters needed some tweaking. After spending nearly six months together, the two teams of both titles were able to come up with a solution.

Fischl has received some major changes to her kit, since her familiar Oz saw its move set being changed completely. The studio has even changed her attack animation, added an extra medium to deal electro damage with a brand new ultimate. She no longer transforms into Oz, but instead, she can deal electro damage in a massive area of effect. These changes were vital to fit her into the world of Honkai, as it operates in a different manner than Genshin Impact.
