Genshin Impact Concert 2021 uncovered alongside more Aloy gameplay

Genshin Impact is hosting a big concert this October.

Developer MiHoYo declared the concert during the Gamescom 2021 Opening Night Live showcase. The appropriately named Genshin Concert 2021: Melodies of an Endless Journey will air October 3, led by performances from director Dirk Brossé and the Flanders Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra will be joined by independent artists from a few nations, including the United States and South Korea, who’ll perform “interpretations of much-loved pieces with a mix of genres,” MiHoYo said in an official statement.

The first teaser for the concert is an exquisite version of the opening theme. Genshin Impact music has been unimaginable from the very first moment, however MiHoYo’s truly started to put it front-and-center updates, often opening its uncover streams with performances from original composer Yu-Peng Chen, and archiving chunks of the soundtrack online. You can discover more subtleties on the show’s recently minted website.

MiHoYo carried more than music to Gamescom, as well. The concert declaration showed up behind one more gander at Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy, who’s coming to Genshin Impact as a free playable five-star character. PlayStation players will get Aloy with the release of update 2.1 one week from now, while PC and mobile players should delay until update 2.2.

Everything shown today lines up with past (and some leaked) footage of Aloy in action: her elemental skill chucks a parting ice bomb that pervades her arrows with ice, and her burst is a greater ice bomb that she detonates with a very much positioned shot.
