Want to know what the Genshin Impact 3.3 release date is? Believe it or not, version 3.3 marks the free RPG game’s 20th update, just over two years since we first set foot in Teyvat. The 3.3 update gives us more of the Sumeru region to explore, as well as new features to try and characters you can obtain via wishes.

While we know exactly when the Genshin Impact 3.3 release date is, it’s a bit early to know precisely how good the new characters will be. Fortunately, we know enough about them to give us a general idea of what they’ll play like. Don’t worry, we’ll rank them on the Genshin Impact tier list to let you know if they’re worth spending your Primogems on.

Genshin Impact 3.3 new characters and banners

Two new characters are making their playable debut and will be the main featured characters in the phase one banners. They are Scaramouche, also known as the Wanderer, a five-star Anemo catalyst user, and Faruzan, a four-star Anemo bow wielder. Give our Scaramouche materials and Faruzan materials guide a read to gain their ascension materials ahead of time. We also have guides on Scaramouche’s best team comp, and Faruzan’s best team comp to get the most out of the Anemo user’s abilities.

Genshin Impact 3.3 banner reruns

The second phase of the 3.3 update sees the return of the Raiden Shogun banner as well as the Ayato banner. Be sure to check out Raiden Shogun’s ascension materials to farm all the items you need ahead of time, and we also have a guide on Ayato’s ascension materials in case you wish for him. Both characters use Genshin Impact Handguards, so we highly recommend picking these rare items up to save yourself some hassle later on.

Along with the new characters, the first batch of cards from a popular trading card game played throughout Teyvat also comes to the open world game. Once you have a complete deck, you’ll be able to challenge NPCs to duels. We have a lot more info about the Genshin Impact Genius Invokation card game in our handy guide.
