MiHoYo announced today that Genshin Impact version 1.5 will arrive on April 28, 2021, the seasonal update brings enhanced visuals and performance on PlayStation 5.
Genshin Impact Beneath the Light of Jadeite update adds two new playable characters, Eula and Yanfei.
Moonlight falls on the branches as a dragon’s roar rises from deep beneath the roots. A drop of sun may trickle in, but a heart of stone is not easily moved. Deals are sealed with scarlet flames and ice-cold vengeance floods forth in waves. But far from the fight is a realm of serenity, where a gentle melody forever plays.
As the Captain of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company, Eula is a five-star character, a claymore-user, and the bearer of a Cryo Vision. Her Elemental Skill, Icetide Vortex, increases her resistance to interruption and her DEF while dealing Cryo DMG. Her Elemental Burst deals AoE Cryo DMG to nearby enemies and creates a Lightfall Sword that follows her around for a certain duration, increasing her resistance to interruption. By dealing damage, Eula charges the Lightfall Sword until it explodes at the end of its duration, dealing AoE Physical DMG. Find out more about Eula in her upcoming story quest.
Meanwhile, Yanfei is a young half-human, half-illuminated beast born in Liyue during peacetime. She has dedicated herself to studying and interpreting Liyue’s extensive legal code and helping her clients extricate themselves from even the most complicated of legal wrangles. The four-star Pyro-using catalyst-wielder generates Scarlet Seals with her Normal Attack, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Burst. Scarlet Seals provide a stackable buff that decreases Yanfei’s Stamina consumption and can be consumed to increase the power and range of her Charged Attacks.
Genshin Impact is available for PC, PS4, iOS, and Android, the PS5 version of the game will feature 4K resolution, enhanced textures, and faster loading times.
