Genshin Impact 1.5 – Release date

If were looking at past update releases. It would be a fair guess that 1.5 will be released at the end of the Childe re-run banner which will also mark the end of 1.4. With this is mind it would be a safe to guess that 1.5 will be released on or around April 27th 2021.

1.5 Rumours

Housing System – One of the biggest leaks that have Genshin fans excited is the introduction of the housing system. Gamers will be able to have their own homes on the game which they can decorate and craft décors using materials such as wood.

It’s rumoured that home owners will be able to earn rewards such as Transient resin (to recover resin) and Vial of Adeptal Speed (lessens crafting time).

Continuation of Zhongli’s story quest – 1.5 should bring the second part of Zhongli’s story quest. As part of the quest a new boss Azhdaha will be introduced. Azhdaha is said to be a stronger and bigger version of the Primo Geovishap.

New Bosses – As well as Azhdaha, two other bosses Cryo Hypostasis and Abyss Lector are rumoured to be introduced. It’s unclear whether the Abyss Lector will be a quest only boss however many fans believe this is likely.
