Version 4.4 of Genshin Impact saw three new 4-star skins added to the game, and one is earnable for free in Lantern Rite, so here are details on all the skins and how to get them. 

Version 4.4 of Genshin Impact is now live, and it has added tons of new content to HoYoverse’s open-world RPG. It is one of the bigger patches, and outside of the usual, like new characters and regions, it also added three new skins.

Lantern Rite is the major focus of the patch, so all added skins are for characters that are from the Liyue region. In fact, if you play a bit of Lantern Rite, you can get one skin for free, and the others are available with a limited-time discount during the version. 

All that said, here’s how to get every new skin in Genshin Impact 4.4.

Xingqiu’s skin is called “Bamboo Rain,” Ganyu’s skin is called “Twilight Blossom,” and Shenhe’s skin is called “Frostflower Dew.”
