Genshin Impact 2.7, Hidden Dreams in the Depths, releases on 31st May 2022 and will introduce two more playable characters, Yelan and Kuki Shinobu, to the ever-growing roster. Being an employee of the Ministry of Civil Affairs, Yelan is one of the game's most enigmatic, "elusive," and "erratic" characters.

To celebrate her arrival in the game, developer HoYoverse, launched a limited-time web event where you'll be assisting her in an ongoing investigation. Here's everything you'll need to know about the To Ensnare a Prey web event, including start and end dates, how to play, rewards, and more.

During this limited-time event, Travelers will be assisting the Ministry of Civil Affairs by completing various tasks for the organization to apprehend a criminal. However, Travelers must first read the case files provided by Yelan, which will grant them access to Yelan's intelligence notes, revealing more information.

With the case files and Yelan's notes, Travelers will need to start speaking with potential suspects while attempting to find hidden clues within their conversations. Travelers can click on the conversation records to browse the information to identify the person responsible for leaking classified information that matched the case files and Yelan's notes.

If Travelers incorrectly identify the suspect, they can replay the web event until the right person is apprehended. In addition, once the correct criminal has been identified, Travelers will earn amazing rewards sent to their in-game Mail.
