Genshin Impact's 1st anniversary is coming in a few days, and miHoYo celebrates it by launching events and live streams.
Recently, Genshin Impact posted an article regarding community events on their forum, HoYoLAB. Five upcoming events have been promoted, while four events are currently ongoing on the HoYoLAB platform.
Aside from how players can enter each event, Genshin Impact also revealed the rewards for each of them. Some prizes include in-game bonuses such as Primogem, Mora, Mystic Enhancement Ore, and Hero's Wit. This is in addition to physical rewards like iPhones, Apple AirPods, and merchandise sets.
Genshin Impact 1st anniversary date
On September 28, 2021, Genshin Impact will celebrate its 1st anniversary. There will be several events throughout the week to commemorate its anniversary and the week leading up to it.
Genshin Impact live stream date and time
Genshin Impact will air two live streams in a few hours celebrating its 1st anniversary. The first live stream is regarding the Genshin Impact 1st anniversary celebration birthday party in Bilibili. In contrast, the second one concerns the HoYoFair Genshin Impact Fan Art Celebration on Twitch.
Bilibili, a Chinese video-sharing website just like YouTube, will exclusively air Genshin Impact's 1st-anniversary live stream. The stream will start at 9.00 PM (GMT +8) and is expected to be held entirely in Chinese.
However, a few Genshin Impact players will provide a translation to English in their live stream. One of them is Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, a recognized leaker in the Genshin Impact community.
Once the Bilibili live stream ends, Genshin Impact will air another one on Twitch. The Genshin Impact Fan Art Celebration 2021 will be exclusively released on Twitch Gaming. It will be premiered at midnight on September 26 (UTC +8).
Currently, there is no news whether it will be released on Genshin Impact YouTube or not. However, it appears that the event will be streamed solely on Twitch.
