Genshin Impact 4.4: Shenhe's Skin – Release Date, Rarity, and Details
Genshin Impact is set to receive a touch of elegance with the introduction of Shenhe's new skin in the upcoming version 4.4 update. Hoyoverse recently provided a sneak peek into this character outfit, revealing a stunning design, release details, and pricing information. Here's an in-depth look at the announcements, including its release date, rarity, and aesthetic details.
Frostflower Dew: A Formal Attire Gifted by Cloud Retainer
The Frostflower Dew skin showcases a formal and elegant attire designed for Shenhe by her master, Cloud Retainer. Unlike Xingqiu's free skin from the Lantern Rite event, Frostflower Dew can be acquired permanently from the character outfit shop using Genesis Crystals.
The color palette of Frostflower Dew is a mesmerizing blend of black, dark turquoise, and white. Departing from her usual bodysuit, Shenhe now adorns a graceful black dress that transitions into dark turquoise at the hem. The intricate patterns and detailing on the outfit make it a perfect fit for the upcoming Lantern Rite event.
Evolving Signature Traits: Stylish Changes
While retaining the signature color palette of her previous outfit, Frostflower Dew introduces subtle yet significant changes. Shenhe's black dress replaces the former bodysuit, offering a more formal appearance. The red ropes around her arms remain, but the hairstyle and headpiece receive a fresh update. Notably, the Cryo vision once mounted on her braids, now finds a new home near her right thighs. The design choices Shenhe's aesthetic while infusing new life into her appearance.

Frostflower Dew will be a permanent addition to the character outfit shop following the release of Genshin Impact version 4.4. Players eager to get this exquisite skin can enjoy a limited-time discount if purchased between 31 January and 11 March 2024.
