What a great week for gamers. Yesterday’s ceremony was full of surprises. We got all sorts of announcements. From sequels of beloved games like Hades 2 to brand-new announcements like FromSoftware’s new game. Yet, there was a small teaser for the biggest gacha-game right now. Genshin Impact teased a character that is now confirmed for the 3.4 version. Alhaitham and Yaoyao are the two new characters arriving in Genshin Impact’s 3.4 update. Both of them are new Dendro users that’ll be coming in the next banners. We still don’t know how rare they’ll be, but many players are already excited about this confirmation.
Genshin Impact’s 3.4 version brings Alhaitham and Yaoyao as new Dendro characters
It is a bit weird to see Genshin Impact announcing their upcoming characters so soon. However, given last night’s teaser during The Game Awards, it makes sense this time. Also, with how many things get leaked from the game, it is nice to see they are ahead of them for once. Alhaitham and Yaoyao are new Dendro characters that’ll arrive with Genshin Impact 3.4’s update. So far we only know that Alhaitham is a sword user and that he will play a DPS role.

Some leaks have suggested that Alhaitham’s toolkit is similar to those of Keqing and Ayaka. The only difference is that he is a Dendro user. For Yaoyao, we don’t know a lot yet. Although, some people claim she was leaked all the way back when Kokomi was leaked as well. It is nice that Yaoyao is finally making her appearance as one of the future Genshin Impact 3.4 characters. Another great news is that last night Genshin Impact won the Players’ Voice award. After fierce competition between Sonic Frontiers and Elden Ring, Hoyoverse’s hit game won. So, if you want to get ready for the upcoming update, you can jump in right now and try your luck at getting The Wanderer or Faruzan.
