Depending on where the player lives, it will either be available on November 23 or 24, 2021. Like previous Genshin Impact updates, it will include brand new characters and some reruns. Many Travelers are looking forward to this update, especially if they want one of the 5-star characters (Albedo, Eula, or Itto).
There are several leaks involving Genshin Impact 2.3, as well. Particularly, a recent one involves the 4-star characters and weapon banner for the start of Genshin Impact 2.3.
Here’s what Genshin Impact 2.3 leaks are saying: Release date, maintenance time, etc

Genshin Impact 2.3 banner details
Fans should already know that Albedo and Eula will be having a rerun in Genshin Impact 2.3, with Itto’s banner following it. That piece of information was officially unveiled in the Genshin Impact 2.3 Special Program livestream. What’s new is that they will share the same 4-star characters, according to recent leaks.
The leaks essentially state that Bennett, Noelle, and Rosaria will appear on both rerun banners as the 4-star characters. Meanwhile, the only thing that players know about Itto’s character banner, is that Gorou will be one of the featured 4-star characters.
The upcoming weapons to look out for are:
- Song of the Broken Pines
- Alley Hunter
- Lion’s Roar
- Dragon’s Bane
- Wine and Song
- Sacrificial Sword
The above Reddit post includes the original leak by a Russian leaker known as Mia. Other leakers have collaborated on it, so it seems to be valid. Genshin Impact hasn’t had two rerun banners run simultaneously before, so this leak gives players a good idea of what to expect in the future.
Both Albedo and Eula will play a prominent role in the upcoming Shadows Amidst Snowstorms event. Out of the 4-star characters, only Bennett has a major role in that event. His showdown with Albedo was beloved on Twitter, so fans are eager to see more of that in the coming update.
