After months of the community asking for character outfits, Genshin Impact is finally getting a skins system to give characters a brand new outfit. This system is being introduced in the Genshin Impact 1.6 update, which also welcomes the Anemo Sword user Kazuha to the game. We also believe Ayaka, a Cyro Sword user, could be coming to the 1.6 update after Kazuha’s release.
One of the big questions surrounding the skin system was how skins were planned to be distributed. As Genshin Impact locks characters behind gacha mechanics, players were worried that skins may be sold using the same system. The 1.6 livestream revealed two methods for unlocking skins: purchasing them outright, and exchanging them for specific items collected during an event. If you happen to miss the event, the skin will make its way to the Character Outfit Shop in the future.
This is only the beginning of the skin system, so don’t feel bad if your favourite character doesn’t have a skin just yet. We fully expect the devs to include new skins with every update from now on. Here are all of the Genshin Impact outfits so far.
