Last week, the developers of Genshin Impact revealed some of the innovations of the major update 1.2. However, the main reason why many players are waiting for the next update is the new location and new playable characters. That is what was shown in the published trailer.
In the video, you can see Albedo (Geo) wielding a one-handed sword, and Ganyu (Cryo), who fights with a bow. MiHoYo has also shown the new snow-covered locations of Dragon Ridge, and new enemies, which are essentially modified versions of familiar monsters.
