Due to a bug on miHoyo's side, the special program Redeem Codes were extended to be active until April 17, 11 PM UTC-5, giving everyone another day to grab them! Take a look at our Redeem Code list to see if there are any Redeem Codes you've missed:
The Update 1.5 will give Zhongli a banner rerun, and introduce two new characters: the 5-star Eula, and the 4-star Yanfei!
The Livestream has confirmed that Zhongli will be getting a banner rerun! He will be accompanied by the new 4-star character, Yanfei.
A new 5-star character will be introduced in Update 1.5! Hailing from Mondstadt, Eula is a Cryo claymore-wielder aligned with the Knights of Favonius.
There will be a new 4-star character as well! From the looks of it, she's a Pyro catalyst-wielder from the region of Liyue. Yanfei will be joining Zhongli in his banner rerun.
Update 1.5 will come with a new 5-star claymore, and 2 sets of new artifacts! It looks like a new domain housing these artifact sets will be introduced as well.
Along with the release of the Claymore-wielding 5-star character, a new Claymore will be released as well. Perhaps a perfect weapon for Eula, we will be updating this page as we get more information:
|4-Piece Set||When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.|
|2-Piece Set||Physical DMG +25%|
|4-Piece Set||When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, ATK is increased by 9% for 7s. This effect stacks up to 2 times and can be triggered once every 0.3s. Once 2 stacks are reached, the 2-set effect is increased by 100%.|
The 1.5 featured a few illustrations of Inazuma, an unreleased region of Teyvat! No date has been given for Inazuma's release yet, however.
A new domain will be introduced in 1.5 to house the Tenacity of the Millelith and Pale Flame artifact sets. The Livestream revealed the domain location: just a little south of Dawn Winery!
A new variation of the Abyss Herald will be introduced in Update 1.5! Unlike the Abyss Herald we've previously met, this Abyss Herald will wield the power of Electro.
The Livestream also featured a massive boss seemingly trapped inside a formation of Zhongli's Stone Steles. It looks like players will learn more about this boss during the second part of Zhongli's Story Quest!
Another variation of a familiar boss will come to Update 1.5: a Cryo Hypostasis! Learn about all known information in our Cryo Hypostasis page here:
One of the character Story Quests is finally getting a part 2! Players will get to know more about Geo Archon Zhongli (and new boss Azhdaha) in the second part of his story quest.
Similar to the PropHunt game, Windtrace looks like it will require players to play a game of hide and seek. Some players will be able to disguise themselves as regular items, while another player attempts to seek them out.
This event will let players hunt Unusual Hilichurls easier than usual. Track Unusual Hilichurls down in specific locations to get Primogems and other rewards (including furniture for the Housing System)!
In this special event, players will get the chance to avail a single constellation of Diona with event currency! More information and gameplay details will be added once the 1.5 Special Program is live.
Players will get to storm Trial grounds and activate each level's Ancient Runes. Once all Ancient Runes have been activated, players will proceed to a mysterious Final Challenge!
One of Update 1.5's upcoming events features a surplus of Talent Ascension Materials. It is suspected to be like the Ley Line Overflow event, but with Talent Ascension materials rewards instead of Character EXP materials.
Housing System Preview
Serenitea Pot Tubby
Version 1.5 brings a much-awaited feature: the Housing System! Players can now decorate both the interior of their houses and the surrounding areas - yes, with buildings and all!
This massive build area can be accessed by interacting with an avian friend inside the Serenitea Pot.
The second wave of Hangouts will come in Update 1.5, allowing players to spend quality time with Diona and again with Noelle! Take a look at all available Hangout Events in our guide here:
The Livestream announced that rewards collection for Weekly Bosses will now only cost 30 Original Resin instead of the original 60. Take a look at this list to know which bosses are affected:
Challenging and defeating bosses will now yield more Companionship EXP when in Co Op Mode! Check our Co Op Boards out to look for Genshin Impact buddies:

|Friend Request Board||Co-Op Board|
Different Voice-Over Languages are installed by default with Genshin Impact. In an attempt to reduce the size Genshin Impact occupies on devices, players can now choose to delete the Voice-Over Languages they don't use.
Players will now be notified when current evends are coming to an end. Say goodbye to worrying about missing events and their valuable rewards!
