What is the Genshin Impact 4.1 release date?

We predict that the Genshin Impact 4.1 release date went live on Wednesday, September 27. However, this is just a prediction, so we’ll be sure to update this guide as soon as we know more.

Before that, we expect that Genshin Impact went into maintenance for roughly five hours starting September 26 at 15:00 PST / 18:00 EST / 23:00 BST, or July 16 at 6:00 UTC+8. Each time maintenance concludes you receive a minimum of 300 primogems in your in-game mailbox as compensation for the game’s downtime.

Who will feature on the Genshin Impact 4.1 banner?

Is there a new Genshin Impact 4.1 boss?

There are two new formidable foes to face in version 4.1. The first is the Experimental Field Generator, a mysterious relic of the Fontaine Research Center that has gotten out of control after the institute’s destruction.

Then there’s the graceful Millenial Pearl Seahorse that you can find in the depths of the ocean. According to the locals, it has a body possessed of phantasmal beauty and a temper fiercer than a raging thunderstorm.

Are there any new features in Genshin Impact 4.1?

During the livestream, Hoyoverse announced a major change to the daily commission system, making it so you can earn points to unlock your daily rewards without having to complete specific quests. We can finally say goodbye to chasing down balloons for a few primogems!
