Aside from them, there's a lot to arrive from new events, regions and quests to bountiful rewards and updates.

Here's everything you need to know about Genshin Impact 4.4: Vibrant Harrier Aloft in Spring Breeze.

When is the release of Genshin Impact 4.4 Update

Wish banners for the Genshin Impact 4.4 Update

New patch means a fresh lineup of characters in the wish banner. Here are all Genshin Impact characters that are set to be available in the next patch.

The first phase of Genshin Impact 4.4

From January 31 to February 20, 2024, Cloud Retainer will arrive next patch as a playable character and will walk under the name "Xianyun". Xianyun is an Anemo support, sub-DPS and a healer, surely a versatile one.

Nahida will also appear as a rate-up character for Phase 1. She is the Dendro Archon who deals damage both on and off-field, and the most reliable one when it comes to consistent Dendro application.

Finally, another plunge attack-focused DPS whose name is Gaming will dance into the game. He is a 4-star Pyro Claymore character capable of landing fiery Pyro damage as he plunges into the enemies.

Moreover, players will have a slim chance of acquiring Xianyun's signature weapon, Crane's Echoing Call alongside Nahida's weapon, A Thousand Floating Dreams.

The second phase of Genshin Impact 4.4

On another side, Phase 2 will feature Xiao and Yae Miko from February 20 to March 12, 2024.

If you're able to secure Xianyun in the first phase, you can might as well get yourself a Xiao. This Polearm-wielding Anemo hypercarry DPS heavily relies on plunge attacks to decimate his opponents. Alongside him is Yae Miko, the Electro DPS/sub-DPS from Inazuma. Meanwhile, the weapon banner will also feature their signature weapon, Primordial Jade Winged-Spear and Kagura's Verity.
