There are plenty of exciting things planned for the popular free-to-play RPG this week, but first there’s got to be some Genshin Impact maintenance.

The bad news is that Genshin servers will be offline for an extended period of time, which will end with the launch of update 2.1.

The good news is that there will be a lot of new content and features available to those who log in after the dust settles.

This includes new characters, with the Baal Banner kicking in once the servers are back online.

Baal is an Electro Archon who will be joined by Sara, a long range attacker who could prove very popular as a new squad member.

And after this banner ends, the 4-star character Sara will be available in the default wish “Wanderlust Invocation” in version 2.2.

A message from Mihoyo adds: “During this event wish, the event-exclusive 5-star character “Plane of Euthymia” Raiden Shogun (Electro) will receive a massive drop-rate boost.

“During this event wish, the four-star characters “Crowfeather Kaburaya”, Kujou Sara (Electro), “Exquisite Delicacy” Xiangling (Pyro) and “Harmless Sweetie” Sucrose (Anemo) will receive a massive drop-rate boost.”

The new characters are always the main draw, but Mihoyo has also promised new islands to explore and new fishing techniques to enjoy.

The fish caught can not only be used to make dishes, but can also be exchanged for precious treasures at the Fisheries Association. There is even a chance to catch vibrant ornamental fish to admire in your home.

To unlock this new feature, gamers must unlock the Serenitea Pot system and complete the “Exploding Population” quest.

To make it easier for travelers to record the locations of fishing points, a pin has been added for indicating fishing points on the map, and travelers can position the pins as needed.

But before these new things can be enjoyed, gamers will have to endure a long maintenance period.


Genshin Impact’s official maintenance time is set for Tuesday, August 31 at 11pm BST.

The server downtime is expected to last about five hours and will end with the release of Genshin 2.1.

However, it should be noted that due to the late nature of the launch, the new update will become playable in the UK on September 1.

Mihoyo also offers a maintenance fee of 300 Primogems for each player after everything is completed.

This is set to an hourly rate so that changes can be made if the maintenance schedule changes in the next few hours.

After maintenance is complete, Genshin Impact 2.1 will launch on Wednesday, September 1, with the release time of Genshin 2.1 at 04:00 BST.

For gamers in North America, the new Genshin update will be available for download on August 31 at 8pm PDT.

Another big part of the new Genshin expansion is the launch of Aloy on PS4 and PS5 consoles.

Aloy, the legendary Nora Huntress from Horizon Zero Dawn, answers the call of adventure in Teyvat and embarks on an all-new journey this week.

If you reach Adventure Rank 20 or higher during the version 2.1 and version 2.2 updates, you will receive the five-star crossover character “Savior From Another World” Aloy and her four-star bow Predator via in-game email when you log in to Genshin- impact on PS4 or PS5.
