A miHoYo presented this Friday (04) the new contents coming to Genshin Impact February 16th, with patch 2.5. The presentation also confirmed that the next area to be added to the game will indeed be The Crag, but only in version 2.6.
In addition to the contents of the new version, the broadcast released the month codes valid for redemption only during the month of February.
New 5 star character
Yae Miko, the Priestess of Grand Shrine Narukami, will finally come to the game. The 5 star Electro character uses Catalyst and is possibly one of the most awaited novelties since the launch of the Inazuma continent.

While Miko’s elemental skill deals constant damage out of the field, her ultimate skill does high burst damage in battle.
Return banners and new legendary quests.
Yae Miko’s banner will be available in the first half of the prayer events, followed by the return of Raiden Shogun and Sangonomiya Kokomi.

The patch will also continue Shogun’s legendary quest and add a legendary quest for Miko, both of which will be available once the update goes live.
Highlights of Version 2.5 “Blooming Sakura”
In addition to new quests, the patch will feature a seasonal event in Enkanomiya, new monsters with different mechanics, and a new boss in the Inzauma region.
“Offering Portal of the Three Kingdoms” Event
During the event, the player will challenge explorers in a region of Enkanomiya cursed by an unknown darkness. With mechanics similar to the fog on Tsurumi Island, when stepping into the event area, characters will continually accumulate corrosive darkness.

To resist the darkness and complete challenges, the player will receive the Caixa de Bokuso. The event will last for the entirety of Version 2.5, giving you plenty of time to explore the area and claim rewards, including the catalyst, “Eye of the Oath”.
The update is also bringing new enemies to newer regions of Genshin Impact. The Defenders, Flag Bearers, and the Line Breaker are three Void Armors that can be found in Enkanomiya. Each uses a different weapon, elemental energy and abilities.
