This includes everything from the Windblume Festival, the Hangout Events, as well as a new playable character, and a new enemy in the Abyss Herald that players will have a chance to fight against.

What Time Will the Genshin Impact 1.4 Maintenance Start and End?

300 free Primogems is the perfect reward for returning Adventurers in Genshin Impact.

miHoYo will kick off the maintenance period for Genshin Impact version 1.4 on March 17 at 5:00 PM Eastern.

During this time, the game will not be available for around 5 hours. Although it is possible that the maintenance period will end earlier than that, miHoYo tells players to prepare for the maintenance to take as long if not longer.

Don't worry though. If the maintenance period ends up taking longer, miHoYo does plan on rewarding players for their patience.

As of the moment, players of at least Adventure Level 5 will receive a reward of 300 Primogems the next time that they log into the game. They'll have 30 days to claim the 300 Primogems.

On the off chance that the maintenance takes longer than expected, players will receive 60 Primogems more for every hour it is delayed. More importantly, players will still receive 300 Primogems even if the event ends earlier.

When is the Genshin Impact 1.5 Release Date?

So far, miHoYo has followed a six-week gap between each update to Genshin Impact.

If we go by this, it is probable that Genshin Impact version 1.5 will make its debut sometime on April 28, 2021, with miHoYo making an official announcement at least a week before it's scheduled to arrive in the game.

Speaking of official announcements, if you play Genshin Impact on your PS4 or PS5, then make sure to clear your schedule for the console-exclusive return of the Slime Paradise event on March 25.
