Ganyu is a Cryo user with a Bow. Her specialty is the charge shot, which can be charged up to level 2 for an aoe Cryo attack. Her elemental skill can taunt enemies, and deals damage when the duration ends or when it's destroyed. Her elemental burst creates a field that rains down ice attacks in the area.
Coming near Ganyu's release are 3 events held at separate times.

The official trailer for version 1.2 has been released! The trailer shows the next content that we will have in the game: a snowy mountain area, Dragonspine. Both Albedo and Ganyu will be playing a big role in the next update, and we even see a glimpse of their abilities in the trailer. The update is scheduled to arrive on December 23rd.
Playing an important role in the new upcoming content are the two new 5 star characters: Albedo and Ganyu. The image shows that Albedo's story quest will be coming after the version 1.2 update, while Ganyu will be in mid January 2021. This confirms that Albedo will be the next banner character released after Zhongli's banner ends.
Albedo is a Geo elemental character that uses a sword. His elemental skill creates a geo construct that can be used to lift the player up in the air momentarily, as well as creating a field around it that deals damage if you attack nearby enemies. His elemental burst deals high damage, with some additional damage if used during the duration of his elemental skill.
One other character is shown to us for a brief moment through the small story teasers, and it's a nun in Mondstadt called Rosaria, shown in the upper left of the picture above. 29:32 at the V1.2 english livestream.
Barbara: But... this event has commemorative significance! The church hopes that all sisters will be present.
Rosaria: Hopes? That's odd, cause I don't recall a "fulfill the hopes of others" clause in my job description.
The main event of the new upcoming content in version 1.2 is called "The Chalk Prince and the Dragon." Albedo takes the traveler and Paimon on a dangerous new quest, entrusting the traveler with a cursed sword. The traveler is tasked with using this sword in Dragonspine to grow its power. There will be an exchange shop, similar to the Unreconciled Stars Event event.
Festering Fang (sword) is obtained from the main event "The Chalk Prince and the Dragon." The blueprints for the other three weapons can be obtained in the course of your adventures in the Dragonspine region.
