Genshin Impact 2.8 will be released on July 13th as leaked. It will be a big update with lots of new and rerun features. Here are the top 5 highly-anticipated features in this upcoming update. Check them out below.

#1. Big Rerun Banners

The most anticipated feature in Genshin Impact 2.8 is the rerun banner of Kaedehara Kazuha - one of the most favorite characters in the game now. Moreover, Genshin Impact players and especially fans of these characters are expecting to explore further parts of his story.

In addition, players may also have the chance to pull the powerful characters, such as Yoimiya and Klee. The adorable girl Klee from Mondstadt is also one of the most preferred characters who are more suitable in the new meta of the game.

#2. Golden Apple Archipelago

A lot of players are also expecting the stunning Golden Apple Archipelago rerun in Genshin Impact 2.8. When developers added this location to the game world in a very old update last year, this archipelago brought lots of interesting activities, quests, puzzles, and treasures to players.

Moreover, this sub-location was also the first place where players rode the Waverider for the first time. Therefore, it's a place where players have lots of beautiful memories of this game. Moreover, you can explore more hidden stories of the Golden Apple Archipelago.

#3. Sumeru Teaser

Sumeru is likely the fourth nation to explore in Genshin Impact after Mondstadt, Liyue, and Inazuma. This Dendro nation has been leaked for a long time and it seems to come soon. Genshin Impact will release more details and stories about this new nation during Update 2.8.

It's likely that Genshin Impact 2.8 will be the last update before the coming of Sumeru. Therefore, players will get a new element and new characters with the new Dendro element in the future update in September or later.

Genshin Impact 2.8 will have new incredible events, quest chains, and domains. There are many new domains of Fischl, Mona, Kazuha, and Xinyan leaked. These four domains will bring you tons of rewards from exciting combat challenges, puzzles, and hidden stories.

You can also earn tons of Primogems and materials to pull and build new or rerun characters. Each domain has different structures, themes, enemies, and gameplay. You can also deploy these characters at the best builds and test their highest damage.

#5. Shikanoin Heizou

Shikanoin Heizou, of course, is the most anticipated character in Genshin Impact 2.8. This new Anemo character has had some buffs in his Elemental Bursts by changes in Constellation 2.

If he is released under the same banner as Kazuha, you should save Primogems and try to get a strong Anemo team next update. This handsome character is also the first Genshin Impact boy to use the catalyst which is really impressive.
