Alhacen, Xiao, Hu Tao, and Yelan are the five-star characters for Genshin Impact 3.4, and their banner dates are already set.
HoYoverse presented the Genshin Impact 3.4 update last week, confirming all the news that will be coming to free-to-play soon. Among them are two new playable characters, who will appear in banners during the first half of the patch.
We are talking about Alhacén and Yaoyao, five and four stars respectively. In the first banner, Xiao will accompany as a five-star character, this being her third appearance. These will be available from January 18, which is the same date that the new patch will be enabled.

In phase two of the update they will be replaced by Hu Tao and Yelan, whose return had been leaked several weeks ago. It will be a new chance to get both five-star characters, Pyro and Hydro respectively. These will be enabled when the second half of the patch begins, and the date is already set.
It will be on February 8th when the banners of Hu Tao and Yelan will come out, as confirmed. This also gives us an idea of how long the patch will last, which would extend two more weeks after that date. If you want to know more about version 3.4 and these characters, you can enter here.
