Genshin Impact 4.2 – 4.6 Character Banner Roadmap: Upcoming New And Old Character Banners
The headline for version 4.2 is the arrival of Hydro Archon Fontaine Furina. This highly anticipated character will finally get her banner, and fans can’t wait to see her in action. It’s worth noting that no new 5-star characters are expected in this version. The reasoning behind this is that, historically, characters have received banners after their Archon Quest chapters are completed. Furina is no exception, much like Nahida in version 3.2.
Originally, it was expected that Furina might be accompanied by Baizhu, Ayato, and Cyno, but plans have shifted. The first phase of banners is anticipated to feature Iro and Baizhu, with Fiorina and Sino coming in the second phase. Additionally, Siguin is expected to make her debut as a playable 4-star Hydro Bow character, adding an exciting twist to the lineup.
Speculations for version 4.3 include a rerun of Raiden Shogun. It’s logical to rerun her here rather than during the Lantern Rite in 4.4. Alongside Raiden Shogun, players can look forward to Navia, Ayaka, and a mysterious character. Many believe that the blank character slot could be filled by a character named Wanderer, potentially with DPS-related skills, creating an intriguing combination of Inazuma and Fontaine elements.
Version 4.4 is expected to be a festival-themed patch, combining elements from Liyue and Sumeru. This is where the triple banner trend begins. Nahida, Xiao, Nilou, Shenhe, and Ganyu are speculated to be featured. Additionally, there’s a possibility of a new character, or it could be any Liyue character. The inclusion of Cloud Retainer as an animal healer is also in consideration.
Versions 4.5 and 4.6:
The future gets even more intriguing in versions 4.5 and 4.6. These patches are expected to introduce Chloi and Arletino. Players face a tough choice between these two characters, with Arletino rumored to bring a unique Nataline gimmick. The specifics of this gimmick are still shrouded in mystery.
As for other characters, Ito and Yaimiko are mentioned for reruns, but the potential character lineup is still relatively uncertain. Players can expect a mix of characters like Kazuha, Albedo, Yula, and perhaps even the Traveler’s original form.
Excitement is building as Genshin Impact continues to evolve and expand its roster of characters and content. Fans eagerly await further details and official announcements to see how these speculations will unfold in the upcoming versions.
