Genshin Impact will introduce many unique events in the upcoming weeks, including a PvP minigame.
Events in Genshin Impact are the easiest and the best source to collect various limited edition souvenirs as well as Primogems. Primogems, being the most precious in-game currency, allows players to unlock new characters, weapons, and resources.
As most of the Genshin Impact player base is F2P (Free to Play), gamers anticipate every time-limited event to get their hands on some primos. This article will list all the confirmed events coming to Genshin Impact in version 1.5
Events scheduled for Genshin Impact version 1.5
Genshin Impact publisher MiHoYo often hosts preview live streams for upcoming updates, commonly known as "Special programs." In these special programs, the developers reveal the planned events, update release dates, banner characters, and major patch notes.
The version 1.5 special program's live stream can be watched in English on Genshin Impact's official YouTube channel, and in Chinese on Bilibili.
Following are the upcoming Genshin Impact events confirmed in the latest special program live stream:
#1 Windtrace event (PvP prop hunt mini-game)
The Windtrace event will be the first-ever PvP event for Genshin Impact. However, it won't involve any combat-based competitive gameplay. Instead, the game will be based on a Player vs. Player prop hunt challenge. The Windtrace event will start on May 14th, at 10:00 AM in Genshin Impact's Asia, Europe, and North America servers.
In the Windtrace PvP event, a total of 4 players will be required to join the co-op mode, and they will be randomly divided into two groups - Hunter and Rebels. The Hunters' goal will be to capture all the Rebels, while the Rebels will have to stay hidden and try not to be caught by the Hunter for a duration.

During the Windtrace event mode, the elemental skill and burst of the players will be replaced with Windward Arts. These arts will help hunters look for Rebels and help Rebels disguise themselves as special objects for better camouflage in the Contested Zones.
The list of challenges and Contested Zones where the event will take place are:
- Small Town Guerilla War: Springvale, Mondstadt
- Winery Confrontation: Dawn Winery, Mondstadt
- Ghost-Fire Stream: Wuwang Hill, Liyue
- Ice-Sealed Maze: Starglow Cavern, Dragonspine
- Drifters in the terrace depths: Qingce village, Liyue
At the start of matchmaking, one of the above six locations or Contested Zones will be chosen randomly. In the end, the event will reward players with a limited edition name card, "Celebration: Peekaboo!," Primogems, Hero's Wits, and other resources.
