Will Diluc and Fischl get new skins this update?

We still don’t know what the other outfits look like, but one leak claims Diluc’s new skin will resemble the Dark Knight skin he wore in the Genshin Impact comic. If the Ubatcha leak is correct, Diluc’s new skin codename will be Red Dead of Night, and Diluc’s name will be Ein Immernachtstraum. They will be join Amber, Barbara, Jean, Keqing, Mona , Ningguang and Rosaria as the only characters in the game with skins.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Update Events

Along with Fischl skin, there may be a new event tied to it. Other events that may take place include the Ludi Harpastum festival in Mondstadt and the continuance of the Unreconciled Stars event, albeit this may merely be hearsay due to the Fischl rumors.

A rerun of the Islands event, similar to the Echoing Tales event on a limited-time map, is also planned. Though nothing has been confirmed, it is said to be called Dreamlike Visions.

Another new map has also been leaked, this time for The Twining Isle and the Floating Castle, ‘where the princess awaits.’ Many players believe the princess is Fischl because the book ‘Flowers for Princess Fischl’ exists in the game
