Everything we know about Genshin Impact version 1.5

After two more modest updates, Version 1.5 is making some massive changes.

Originally Published: 

Genshin Impact’s momentum continues to grow. Game-changing new updates are introduced to the game every six weeks. A single update can obtain a variety of things like new characters, events, rewards, and smokin’ hot new features to enjoy. In version 1.3, players gained access to characters like Xiao, Hu Tao, and the Lantern Rite Festival event. Version 1.4 provided a Venti rerun and the Windblume Festival.

So what comes next for the game? What will occur in version 1.5? Well, it might contain a few features the Geshin Impact community has been hankering for.

Here’s everything we know about Genshin Impact version 1.5.

When is the Genshin Impact version 1.5 release date?

Developer miHoYo has yet to set an official date for Genshin Impact version 1.5 Given the six-week cycle that the game updates operate on, it’s possible to estimate a release date. Version 1.4 arrived on March 17, 2021 so version 1.5 will probably debut around April 28, 2021.

Is there a Genshin Impact version 1.5 trailer?

No, not yet. MiHoYo has yet to officially announce the update, so there isn’t a trailer available.

Who are the new Genshin Impact version 1.5 characters?

Characters that will be available in 1.5 have yet to be revealed through official means. However, version 1.5 has entered closed beta testing, resulting in the two new characters — Yanfei and Eula — being leaked by Twitter users Lumie_Lumie and DimbreathJr.

Both characters could undergo alterations before being officially announced, but as of right now it’s believed that Yanfei and Eula will be the characters added to Genshin Impact in version 1.5.

Yanfei is a four-star Pyro Catalyst DPS from Liyue. According to Genshin Impact fan site Honey Hunter, her in-game description says that she’s a legal advisor in Liyue Harbor. It also notes that she’s considered to have mixed blood, containing elements of an “illuminated beast.” This could mean that she’s another half-human half-Adeptus character like Ganyu or that she’s half of some unknown species.

Who is Eula in Genshin Impact version 1.5?

Eula is a five-star Cryo Claymore user from Mondstadt. According to her lore, not a single person in-game has called her End-User License Agreement. Instead, Eula is known as the Spindrift Knight and captains the Knights of Favonius’ Reconnaissance Company. She’s also a scion of the old aristocracy. It’s still unclear why she joined the Knights.

What is the Genshin Impact version 1.5 housing mechanic?

According to the same leak that gave us Eula and Yanfei, housing is coming to Genshin Impact in version 1.5. We don’t know much about housing just yet. According to the leaker, Zeniet, your house will be located in a teapot. This is similar to the Liyue mission with Madame Ping, who also lives in a kettle. You’ll be able to access your abode by speaking to a bird retainer.

The current event slate in version 1.5 is currently unknown. According to a Genshin Impact leaker on Twitter, there will be three new events in version 1.5.

  1. Energy Amplifier Initiation – This event supposedly focuses on the new Irminsul Fruit system that will be included in Version 1.5. These fruits will add different abilities to characters like increasing Attack and Resistance.
  2. Mini Tomo – For this event, you’ll have to find the Unusual Hilichurl throughout the land with your friends. This event will reward you with new furniture items and Primogems.
  3. Windtrace – Little is known about this event. It will allegedly be based on a classic game played in Mondstadt.
