Genshin Impact developer, miHoYo, has announced the release date for the next major update to the game: Genshin Impact 2.3: "Shadows Amidst Snowstorms."

The next chapter of Genshin Impact is about to begin. With 2.2 introducing the pyro polearm user, Thoma, and bringing the Inazuma plot to a close—at least, for now—players are turning their attention to the mountains standing fast against the Teyvat sky. The frigid peaks of the Dragonspine region within Mondstadt are calling travelers to explore and, potentially meet a few new allies along the way.

Here's when you can head up to the mountains in Genshin Impact 2.3.

Genshin Impact 2.3: "Shadows Amdist Snowstorms" is set to launch on Nov. 24.
