miHoYo has revealed everything they have prepared for Genshin’s 2.1 update; where players will learn more about the Raiden Shogun and her Vision Hunt Decree in a new Archon Quest, along with lots of new challenges and events with many rewards at stake.
With the reveal of the “Floating World Under the Moonlight” update, miHoYo has also unveiled the first special events they will hold around Genshin Impact, to celebrate its first anniversary since its official release back in September, so let’s take a look at everything announced.
Get tons of rewards in Passage of Clouds and Stars
To kick off the celebrations of the first anniversary, players will have the chance to collect lots of rewards, as part of the Passage of Clouds and Stars daily login campaign.
Based on your cumulative log-ins within the event period, you can redeem Mystic Enhancemt Ores, Hero’s Wit, Mora, and most importantly, 10 Intertwined Fates to use on the Event Wish section and take advantage of the new banners.
Passage of Clouds and Stars will also feature the reset of the initial top-up bonuses, meaning all players will be able to get double Genesis Crystals from the in-game store, when purchasing their first top-up.
If you haven’t purchased any since the game’s release, then don’t hesitate and use this opportunity as the top-up bonuses can’t be accumulated.
Send your Engraved Wishes and be featured in a Paimon statue
Genshin's anniversary celebration will be over the top, as miHoYo has announced a new web event where all the game’s community can send their best wishes, and also get the chance to be part of a historical moment.
Starting on 6th September, every Genshin Impact player will be able to send their messages through the Engraved Wishes website, these will be collected by miHoYo and later engraved on Paimon’s blocks.
Submissions will be open until 27th September. After this, miHoYo will randomly choose 50,000 of these and start engraving them into a six-foot-tall Paimon statue, tentatively presented in China during October.
Engraving inquiries will be accepted after the statue’s reveal on 25th October.
Take a seat and enjoy the Genshin Orchestral Concert
miHoYo announced they will be holding their first-ever orchestral concert, conducted by live orchestras from the United States, Belgium and South Korea, featuring their own covers from Genshin Impact’s amazing soundtrack.
Together with this, they also revealed a new collaboration between HoYoMiX and Sony Music, to produce and release a soundtrack compilation based on the Inazuma OST, featuring live performances from the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra and traditional music artists.
Genshin’s Orchestral Concert is set to be held online this fall, while the live soundtrack’s release date hasn’t been revealed at the moment.
Prepare yourself for a big celebration time, and enjoy with your friends and community as the Genshin Impact 1st Anniversary event is set to begin with update 2.1, on 1st September.
