Genshin Impact update 1.1 release date revealed along 1.2 and 1.3 plans

Genshin Impact update 1.1 release

The much hyped update 1.1 for the hit action RPG Genshin Impact is finally on the horizon. However, the wait is going to be longer than what most players were hoping for. The official info comes straight from the Chinese build, as developer miHoYo shares its plans with the community in a somewhat extensive post. The reasoning behind the delay for the Genshin Impact update 1.1 release is that with the launch many issues surfaced, mostly related to issues with the game, assorted bugs, and more.

The Genshin Impact update 1.1 release date that we get to know right now is from the China version, and there is no indication whatsoever that the patch is going to drop for the global version on the same date. This isn't to be excluded, but we'll have to wait for official confirmation. Therefore, update 1.1 is scheduled for November 11, 2020, and features the release of a new event.

The release dates for the Genshin Impact 1.2 and 1.3 updates were also revealed. You can expect update 1.2 to launch on December 23, adding the Longji Snow Mountain area to Teyvat. Rumor has it that this is the snowy region that you can see on the world map, and it could be the place where the city of Snezhnaya is located – cross your fingers.

As for the 1.3 update, you're going to have to wait until February 2021 to get your hands on it. The first info mentions that it brings the Sea Lantern Festival series of activities, but hopefully the Genshin Impact update 1.1 release and subsequent updates will include more content, such as new characters, items, story quests, and more.

Now all that we need is a full-fledged Genshin Impact roadmap to know what we can count on. You can read the full Chinese post below thanks to Google Translate.

Hello, dear travelers.

Some time ago, we received many questions from travelers, why there are no in-game activities in Double Festival.

Here, we would like to sincerely explain the reason for this matter with you, and also take this opportunity to synchronize the follow-up version plan with you.

Genshin Impact opened the PC version technical test on September 15th, and officially opened the global synchronization public test on September 28th.

Considering that a large number of travelers arrived for the first time on the 28th, the experience of travelers at different schedules is quite different, so we did not have any preparation activities in the initial stage of the launch of all platforms.

On the other hand, after opening the server, we encountered various problems, such as various stuck problems, attack plug-ins, abnormal battles, etc…. The production team put more energy on ensuring the stability of the game. In addition, the production team has also formulated countermeasures and scheduling for the key position problems, operational convenience problems, lens problems, etc. that everyone has concentrated on. The production team has also formulated solutions and schedules, and made corresponding modifications and tests without affecting the development of subsequent versions.

Under such circumstances, we finally did not arrange corresponding festivals around October 1st, which caused everyone's disappointment. Let me say sorry to the travelers.

Some travelers also asked why not open the Sea Lantern Festival during the Mid-Autumn Festival.

First of all, because the Sea Lantern Festival activities have exposed several problems in previous tests, a lot of adjustments are needed, and these adjustments are still in production, and the relevant release schedule has been correspondingly planned; on the other hand, in the already determined In the version plan, the Sea Lantern Festival is the largest festival in Liyue area, and it was originally prepared for the winter time. (I wonder if the friends who participated in the previous test still remember the words of Xiao Paimeng at the beginning of the Sea Lantern Festival: The first full moon night of each year is the “Sea Lantern Festival” of Liyue.)

In order to provide travelers with richer game content, we have been trying various optimization solutions, and the development of multiple versions is also in progress to ensure the stable update of the game version and the continuous change of content. In subsequent versions, we will combine the different seasons and cultural backgrounds of each region in the game, as well as everyone’s habits and holidays to design. Later, there will be unique festivals in each region such as Mondstadt and Liyue (such as Mondstadt Meet everyone at the Fenghua Festival, Badminton Festival, etc.; Liyue’s Sea Lantern Festival, Moon-by-Month Festival, etc.).

At present, the content of the subsequent version is under stable development. The production team will work hard to ensure that the version is updated every 6 weeks, and the major version update will generally be on Wednesday (the specific update rhythm and update nodes are subject to actual conditions). In each subsequent major version update, the version theme activity will be opened.

List of recent version activities and time:

Version 1.1 – It is expected to be updated on November 11. During this version, the “Unreturned Stars Off” event will be opened;

Version 1.2 – It is expected to be updated on December 23. During this version, the Longji Snow Mountain area and related version activities will be opened;

Version 1.3 – It is expected to be updated in February next year. During this version, the “Sea Lantern Festival” series of activities will be launched.

Finally, we would like to express our sincere thanks to all travelers for their enthusiasm and expectations. We have been paying attention to everyone's opinions and feedback in the community. Whether it is criticism or spur, we all accept it with an open mind. When dealing with problems, we will definitely analyze and solve them seriously. We did not give you a detailed explanation at the first time, which caused trouble to everyone. We also sincerely apologize for this. Thank you to everyone who has accompanied us all the way and for your tolerance. Thank you for your continued attention. We will turn this companionship and emotion into a driving force for progress, step by step, and make the trip to Teyvat closer to everyone's dream.
