THE CHASM has made its way into Genshin Impact with the release of version 2.6.
However, the many Travelers of Teyvat are already considering the next update, and the Genshin Impact forum is abuzz with Yelan and Kuki Shinobu leaks. These two new characters may or may not appear in the upcoming update.
As usual, HoYoverse has a robust schedule of updates and events planned to delight its player base and show some love to its characters. Perhaps there will even be a new chapter in the Chasm saga with Yelan.
You need to know about Genshin Impact version 2.7’s release date, characters, and prospective content.
Genshin Impact 2.7 release date
On May 11, 2022, Genshin Impact Version 2.7 is planned to be released. For background, Genshin Impact receives version upgrades around every six weeks.
It’s become so popular that community members have constructed calendars for the proposed update dates.
Maintenance is scheduled to begin about 6 p.m. Eastern and conclude around 11 p.m. As with previous upgrades, it will take between four and five hours.
After the update’s release, players will almost certainly get the regular 300 Primogem maintenance incentive. Please make certain that you claim it within 30 days!
Genshin Impact 2.7 Characters Banners
According to Leaker Lumie Lumie and others, Yelan will be the featured five-star for the first half of Version 2.7, and Kuki Shinobu will be one of the three four-stars who will join the five-star on the following banner.
Nobody has publicly revealed who the second five-star is based on plainly data-mined or leaked information. However, rumor has it that Arataki Itto will reprise his role as Shinobu’s gang leader.

Kazuha is currently said to be re-released in Version 2.8. Previously, it was expected that Kazuha would reappear in Version 2.6 alongside one of the Kamisato siblings.
That, however, proved to be incorrect. Now, the community is doubtful that he will appear in Version 2.7. According to leakers, Kazuha has been pushed to 2.8, potentially to accommodate the leaked character Shinkanoin Heizou.
Yelan will most likely be the highlighted five-star in the first part of Version 2.7, with three unknown four-stars. On the second banner, Kuki Shinobu is supposedly a four-star, confirming Itto’s status as the second half’s highlighted five-star.
Genshin Impact 2.7 Quests
As of now, it is unknown whether Yelan will have her narrative quest. According to others, she will merely be the protagonist of the upcoming Archon Quest chapter devoted to the Chasm.
Perhaps she will even obtain both. Meanwhile, leakers appear to agree that Kuki Shinobu will be the subject of a hangout.
Genshin Impact 2.7 New Weapons
Numerous five-star characters debut with a one-of-a-kind five-star weapon that complements their outfit. Yelan is set to make her debut in this case with the five-star bow Aqua Simulacra (a.k.a. the previously released “Kirin Bow”).
The second noteworthy weapon is a free bow named Fading Twilight, which is a reward for participating in the leaked Perilous Trails event.
Aqua Simulacra has Crit DMG that exceeds 88 percent when completely leveled. Its passive ability increases Yellen’s HP by 16%, complementing her already high HP for a bow user. Additionally, Aqua Simulacra increases its user’s damage by 20%, even while they are not on the field.
Given its low Energy Recharge substate and passive ability’s damage bonus, Fading Twilight appears to be a plausible four-star weapon.
According to the most recent information on Honey Hunter, it alternates between three phases that deliver varying amounts of additional damage. It alternates between levels every seven seconds, as long as the user hits the enemy successfully.

Genshin Impact 2.7 Events
A few significant events have been revealed for Genshin Impact Version 2.7. The first is Perilous Trails, a roguelike challenge akin to the Spiral Abyss’s premise, in which teams of four characters are divided into two sides. Players will be forced to adapt to the stage’s unique circumstances.
Additionally, there is a festival sponsored by Arataki Itto, Inazuma’s local himbo. According to the event organizer, the “Almighty Arataki Great and Glorious Drumalong Festival” is larger than the Irodori Festival and Lantern Rite festivities.
According to the leaked invitation, the event appears to be more of an outing than a full-fledged festival. Players may be rewarded with a little tribal drum, similar to the Lyre from last year’s Windblume Festival.
Along with the other two, two minor events were revealed. “Heart of the Machine” assigns Travelers the duty of gathering resources to construct a robot toy.
The rewards include schematics for the Serenitea Pot only available during the event. Meanwhile, “A Muddy Bizarre Adventure” is a similar exploration challenge to the Bokuso Box event, in which participants discover “hazardous mud.” Additionally, it teases facts about the unreleased Sumeru nation, such as the Purina’s Spike event.
