In the first banner, three characters will be available: Kazuha, Kli, and Shikaoin Heizo. In the second one, Yemiya.
Information about the new character Heizo

Golden Apple Archipelago at the Genshin Impact
The return of the temporary location from the old version of Genshin Impact was eagerly awaited. And now, the developers have confirmed its addition in the new patch. New quests, items and rewards will be hidden throughout the area.
The only thing that remains unknown in Genshin Impact 2.8 is what will be changed in this location. In particular, whether there will be added new locations, environmental details and other nuances. The developers also did not say whether the Golden Apple Archipelago will be added permanently.
New Event in Genshin Impact 2.8
The main pack of quests will be timed to the character Fischl. In addition, this character will be available for free with the release of the update. By completing a number of additional missions, players will be able to unlock a unique skin for Fischl.
