Genshin Impact 2.8 update will bring two new banners like previous patches, and you will be able to wish for new characters. The update will release on July 13, and HoYoverse has officially announced the details of both the banners coming to the game via its special program livestream.

Genshin Impact 2.8 update banner schedule
Just like every other Genshin Impact update, patch 2.8 is divided into two phases that will introduce different banners, events, and more in the game. Here are the details of the character banners the game will be getting in both phases.
The first banner of the Genshin Impact 2.8 update is expected to feature Heizou along with Kazuha and Klee. Both Heizou and Klee are 5-star characters, while Heizou is a 4-star character.
"Doushin Shikanoin has admirable wit and insight. While he is unfettered and unrestrained in demeanor, one should not dismiss his talents. The Tenryou Commission is incredibly fortunate to have such a man in their ranks." - Kamisato Ayato#GenshinImpactpic.twitter.com/lM0HNfZktr— Genshin Impact (@GenshinImpact) May 16, 2022
Kazuha rerun is something that many players have been eagerly waiting for, and all of these three characters will have boosted drop rates during the banner.
The second banner will be introduced in the game during Phase 2, which will feature Yoimiya. She is also a 5-star character possessing Pyro element and is a master of fireworks.
