Will there be a new region in Genshin Impact 2.1?

There are no new regions, but if you journey to Genshin Impact’s Inazuma region that was introduced in update 2.0, you will get to visit two new islands.

The first is Watasumi, which is quite far off from the other islands. Watasumi is home to the resistance forces, and features unique culture and breath-taking environments. You can also find the beautiful Saganomia shrine, surrounded by mountains and misty waterfalls, which acts as the headquarters for the resistance.

Then there is Seirai island, which originally appeared in the 1.6 event. It is constantly enveloped by a violent storm, and hosts a strange, gloomy atmosphere. People rarely set foot among its ramshackle villages and abandoned shrines, which are bound to have a deeper secret for you to explore. Seirai is also home to a talking black cat, who is also the head priestess of the island.

What are the Genshin Impact 2.1 events?

The Moonchase Festival is coming to Genshin Impact. During the event period, you will see some noticeable changes to Liyue harbour, get visits from some familiar faces, and have the opportunity to engage in a special treasure hunt – all while earning plenty of goodies. The rewards for the festival include an exclusive Claymore called Luxurious Sea-lord – and yes, it’s a huge fish. And there’s more – the Trail of Delicacy is coming, with special dishes to give you unique buffs in battle, and the brand new ability to go fishing in order to gather ingredients. 

To celebrate the one year anniversary, the Passage of Clouds and Stars login event will be available, where you can grab some great daily rewards. The double crystal bonus event will also be activated once again, so you can reap the benefits every time you make an in-game purchase. These are just a few of the awesome events that Mihoyo are serving up – there will also be some great real-world events too, including an online concert, and the ability to partake in the Engraved Wishes promotion.
