Genshin impact version 2.6 update includes many new release dates for the first phase events that players should keep an eye out for.
With the release of the Genshin Impact update version 2.6, a completely new region of The Chasm has been added, as well as lots of new content for old and new players to immerse themselves in. Kamisato Ayato was released on the first day of the update with a wave of new banners, events, quests and more. Trying to keep up with the schedule of all the different releases can be daunting, but thankfully HoYoverse has mapped out a full schedule of event release dates.
The 2.6 update for Genshin Impact was released on March 30 and includes the highly anticipated five-star character Kamisato Ayato and the highly anticipated introduction of the region The Chasm. Despite only being released now, rumors and leaks about the “Abyss” and its story have been circulating online for nearly a year now. The name of the region has been appearing on game maps for quite some time and is also mentioned in NPC dialogues.
In addition to The Chasm, you’ll find many in-game events and tasks, including two new permanent tasks. The constantly available quests that have been released are the Kamisato Ayato story quest and the new Archon Quest release. Banners of the characters Kamisato Ayato and Wenty from Genshin Impact also became available on the first day of the update, as well as a banner with a weapon with a five-star weapon for both characters. Shortly after the update’s release, the “Outside the Canvas, Inside the Lens” event appeared, a simple event that allows players to take photos in certain places to earn primogems and other rewards. The “Shades of Purple Garden” event is the main highlight of this update, it has not been released yet, but it will remain for a longer period of time.
All 2.6 event release dates for Genshin Impact
There are quite a few new event releases in the 2.6 update that are worth keeping an eye out for. The chronology of all Genshin Impact 2.6 events in order of release date, including two new permanently available missions, is as follows:
– Archon’s quest “Requiem for the Echo of the Depths” – March 30.
– Camisato Ayato’s story quest “Cypressus Custos” – March 30.
-Banner of Kamisato Ayato’s character “Azure Excursion” – March 30 – April 19.
-Banner of the character of Venty “Ballad in cups” – March 30 – April 19.
-The banner of the weapon “Epitome Invocation” – March 30 – April 19.
-The action “Off the canvas, in the lens” — April 1 – April 11.
-The action “Shades of the purple garden” – April 7-25.
While no official timeline has been announced for the second phase of the 2.6 update, the Kamisato Ayaki re-banner is expected to be released shortly after the completion of the current character banners. Given previous updates, this should be about three weeks after the release of version 2.6.
This new update is a breath of fresh air for many players who have long reached the mediocre endgame content of Genshin Impact. Instead, players can have fun exploring the new Abyss region and all it has to offer, in addition to many current events. As more characters are released in the next update, such as the recently announced Yelan and Cookie Shinobu, players have something to expect in the future of Genshin Impact.
