The upcoming update will bring two playable characters to the game as HoYoverse has already announced the debut of Yelan and Kuki Shinobu on Genshin Impact's official Twitter handles. 

Yelan is a five-star character and her glimpse was seen during the first fight of Traveler and Ruin Serpent. HoYoverse describes her as a mysterious person who claims to work for the Ministry of Civil Affairs.

Kuki Shinobu is the Deputy Leader of the Arataki Gang and is surprisingly a four-star character yielding the electro element.

In addition to this, a new weapon called Fading Twilight has also been leaked by the dataminers. It is a four-star bow that can boost the damage and help in faster energy recharge.

 In addition to this, we can expect possible reruns of Yoimiya, Keqing, and Klee according to some leaks but no strong evidence is there about it.
