Genshin Impact’s long-awaited Version 2.7 update will be coming on May 31, 2022, and will introduce two new characters, five-star Hydro bow user Yelan and four-star Electro sword user Kuki Shinobu, as well as a new weapon tailor-fitted for Yelan. The Epitome Invocation banner will be refreshed with a pool of new and old weapons that pair with the featured characters on rate-up.

The first phase will run from May 31, 2022, to approximately June 20, 2022, while the second phase will run from June 21, 2022, to July 12, 2022. Keep in mind that the exact banner schedule may change based on HoYoverse’s discretion.
