While players might be feeling dejected about the Genshin Impact 2.7 Update getting delayed, there is good news as there will be a third phase of the 2.6 updates with a horde of new content. This is the first time that the developers are releasing three phases for an update in Genshin Impact.

Following the notice for the infinite postponement of the next update, players have been wondering if there will be new events or banners when the second phase of the 2.6 update is over, but Hoyoverse has announced their preparations for a brand new third phase, which will come before the 2.7 update that contains the playable characters Yelan and Kuki Shinobu.

Third Phase of Genshin Impact 2.6 Update Has Been Officially Announced

The update of “Zephyr of the Violet Garden” has already had two phases, which is the standard amount for all updates in Genshin Impact so far. In the third phase that will follow from May 19, players will have the chance to get more characters as well as participate in events that they might have missed.

Banner Character Wish

Ayaka will be returning as a Cryo character on the banner without an end date confirmed, which means that her banner will be available until the conclusion of the event. Travelers can wish for her 5-star character to be playable as well as other 4-star characters such as Rosaria, Sayu and Razor.

Character Trial 

As with every update, players have two weeks to try out the new characters and get plenty of useful rewards while doing so, which include primogems and characters ascension materials. You will be able to test out Ayaka in gameplay, as well as all the other 4-star characters available.

Spices from the West Event

Players who are above the Adventure Rank of 20 will be able to participate in this event by learning new recipes in order to receive rewards. While this event has been teased earlier, players speculate that it was taken down due to clashes with the Marvelous Merchandise Event. 

Overflowing Mastery Event

Overflowing Mastery Events are a great way to build up your arsenal of talent-level materials, as players can earn double the rewards by fighting enemies in certain Domains. This will make a return in the third phase of the Genshin Impact 2.6 update on May 22 and will run till May 29
