Whether you joined the game on day one or joined with Inazuma later in the year, there will be plenty of rewards and cause for celebration for the game’s first anniversary.

Genshin Impact Anniversary Events

Alongside the anniversary is the celebration of the Moonchase festival. Unrelated to the anniversary but will be happening around the same time. The Moonchase festival is based on the Chinese holiday, a mid-autumn festival.

We currently know of four events:

  • Lunar Realm – the event is expected to introduce fishing to Genshin Impact. You’ll have to catch fish throughout Teyvat. Collected fish can be exchanged for event-exclusive weapons or placed in a pond within your Teapot. This is supposedly the first part of the Moonchase Festival.
  • Light Caresses the Moon – a cooking event that focuses on your making tasty grub throughout Liyue. This is another part of the Moonchase Festival.
  • Hyakunin Ikki – a fighting tournament. You’ll form multiple teams of characters to win.
  • Spectral Secrets – finding the new Spectre enemy that has appeared across Inazuma.

As of now, there are currently no events directly tied into the anniversary. But it’s not out of the question that miHoYo will announce something closer to the anniversary date.


It’s easy to why some players are a little disappointed by the anniversary. Some had hoped for more to celebrate the game’s birthday, but people all agree that this seems to be a bit lacking.
