The two new characters appearing in the patch are Shenhe, a five-star character who uses frozen elemental polearm attacks to improve other frozen teammates. The other is Yunjin, which uses geographic vision to enhance the offense and defense of teammates. However, perhaps even better is that Yun Jin is a Peking opera actor whose performance is dubbed by a real Peking opera artist.
