Servers Are Back Up, Genshin Impact Update 1.6 is Live

Genshin Impacts servers are now live for Update 1.6, which, amongst many other things, introduced new events, characters, items and gear.

The download size for Genshin Impact 1.6 download size does vary from platform to platform, and so that is something worth paying attention to.

The servers went down at Wednesday, June 8, 2021, at 6 p.m. EST/11 p.m. BST, and remained so for five hours.

The servers went live at 4am BST on June 9, and while some players reported issues with logging in (particularly those who do so through FaceBook), the initial congestion seems to have cleared up, and players are able to get in.

Midsummer Island Adventure Event

Perhaps the biggest draw of Genshin Impact's 1.6 Update is the Midsummer Island Adventure Event, which will see players exploring islands and completing various challenges.

The goal here is to acquire as many of the Shiny Flotsam and Mini "Harpasta" items by completing challenges and through exploration.

Players can then use these items to exchange for rewards such as:

  • Dodoco Tales (Catalyst)
  • Northlander Billet Trove
  • Crown of Insight
  • Furnishing Blueprints

It looks like a fun and charming event, and one that players can jump into right now!
