Genshin Impact skins: an in-game look at Shenhe's new outfit, while she holds a spear

Though there aren’t that many Genshin Impact skins yet compared to other gacha titles, but the catalog is slowly growing. Diluc scored the first five-star outfit giving him new animations, with all other Genshin outfits being four-star skins – some available for free from big events in the game.

New skins tend to come out in the Lantern Rite Festival, along with two new characters. Check out our Genshin Impact next banner and Genshin Impact tier list to get to grips with this ever-expanding cast of colorful characters.

New Genshin Impact skins release date

Good news, travelers – three new skins are coming in version 4.4 for some of Liyue’s most notable denizens. Ganyu, Shenhe, and Xingqiu get brand new dark-blue outfits this Lantern Rite. These skins release during the new version, after January 30, 2024.

Genshin Impact’s Ganyu, tireless worker of the Liyue Qixing, gets a brand new outfit during Lantern Rite in 2024. It’s a dark blue and black dress with long gloves and gold accessories. She also gets a new hairdo with the lengths swept back. These new skins are all allegedly made by a certain Fontaine-dwelling seamstress, probably Genshin Impact’s Chiori.

Ganyu and Shenhe’s skins will be available for purchase after the 4.4 update goes live.

Genshin Impact’s Shenhe gets an elegant dress, in shades of blue and black, called ‘Frostflower Dew’. Like Ganyu, her skin is only available in the store and is a four-star, so does not add any new animations like Diluc’s fancy red suit.

It looks like Xingqui has gone through Furina’s wardrobe, or got himself a very similar piece of Fontaine fashion to the hydro archon’s get up. His skin is called ‘Bamboo Rain’ and gives him a snazzy blue coat.

You can earn Genshin Impact Xingqiu‘s skin for free during Lantern Rite, as you collect points completing the different available events. It will also be available in the store after the event ends.
