Genshin Impact: New character Ganyu has been revealed!

A new Cryo user has been revealed!

With the hype increasing for the first major update for Genshin Impact, update 1.1 is coming very soon, it seems everyone is eager for more information. 1.1 comes with a plethora of new content, additional characters - Zhongli, Childe, Xinyan, and Dionna, and more places to explore! A new character has been revealed, a female Cryo user called Ganyu; however, it's doubtful she'll come with the latest update, but from her leaked combat talents, we know she'll definitely be playable at some point or another! So here's all the information we have on Ganyu!


Ganyu is a new character coming to Genshin Impact, she is currently an unknown Star rarity, but she is 100% a Cryo element user, who uses a bow as her weapon. This lady first appears in the Archon Quests Chapter 1, Act 2: Farewell, the Archaic Lord. If you haven't reached her in the story yet, she works as the secretary for Ningguang, otherwise known as Lady Qixing. When update 1.1 hits in November, we're all going to dive deeper into the Ningguang storyline, so having Ganyu as playable at some time in the future makes absolute sense.

Take all this information with a grain of salt like always, as things are subject to change.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
