As has been speculated since the introduction of Inazuma in Genshin Impact, this time two powerful characters will make their arrival as part of the 2.3 update, with one of these being the long-awaited "Canine Warrior", Gorou.
First details about Gorou in Genshin Impact
Although this will be the first time that Gorou will be available as a playable character in Genshin Impact, this will not be the debut of this warrior as part of the content of the Inazuma region, since he previously made an appearance within the Archon Quests based on the story of the Nation of Eternity.
As miHoYo added during his reveal, Gorou is known for being the loyal and brave general of the Watatsumi Army, being in charge of leading the forces of the Sangonomiya Resistance against the Shogunate and her former Vision Hunt Decree.
Beyond his experience in combat and war strategy, Gorou is also known to want all the inhabitants of this island to live in safety and peace, in Gorou's eyes, the people around him are not only his brave soldiers, but they are also his beloved companions.
This is demonstrated by the words that Kaedehara Kazuha once dedicated to him, demonstrating his friendship with this warrior by saying: "Kindness and loyalty are the representation of virtue. Without a doubt, my friend Gorou is a virtuous general."
Gorou’s featured banner and release date
According to rumours, Gorou will be introduced as part of the second banner of the 2.3 update, being accompanied by the re-run of Albedo, a character who made his debut during the addition of Dragonspine Mountain.
Although Gorou will be a four-star character, there is no doubt that many players will try to get hold of him as soon as he is released, as his arrival is hotly anticipated.
Since his main weapon will be a bow, the options for efficiently arming him will be varied, although it is expected that a new weapon of this type designed for him will be revealed as part of the content of this update.
As for his abilities, it has been confirmed he will have a Geo affinity meaning he will be a unique character of his type, while his constellation will be known as "Canis Bellatoris".
At the moment, no more details have been revealed about his skill set and his attacks, however, all this is expected to be revealed in the next few days with the launch of beta 2.3 of the game.
Gorou will be available together with all the content from the 2.3 update on 24th November.
