Here are all of the details about the Genshin Impact 1.6 special program live stream and the dev notes:
Genshin Impact 1.6 special program date and time
As revealed by the developers, they will hold the special program for the Genshin Impact 1.6 version on May 28, 2021, at 11:00 A.M. (UTC -5). miHoYo will broadcast it on Genshin Impact’s YouTube to reveal the juicy details about new content and other announcements regarding the new Genshin Impact version 1.6 update. Apart from the upcoming announcements, travelers will also get free rewards like Primogems and in-game redemption codes via this special program.
During a recent developers discussion, the developers revealed a bunch of details regarding some optimizations or additions that will arrive in the Genshin Impact 1.6 update. Here’s a list and brief descriptions of them:
Serenitea Pot load time
The developers will increase the load time for the Serenitea Pot, but the actual reach of the load will depend upon the player’s device compatibility, which means how much a device can support.
Dialogue with Tubby
In the 1.6 version, Travelers will no longer have to repeat the dialogue after they have chosen dialogue with Tubby. They can easily skip the further dialogue in ‘dialogue with Tubby’ to access other options.
Serenitea Pot’s paved roads and second floor
Serenitea Pot may see an addition of paved roads and some stones with furnishings floating in the air with the launch of the 1.6 update. Apart from the paved roads, the second floor, previously inaccessible, will also be available for decoration.
Co-Op mode and crafting bench
Many players found it inconvenient to be unable to use the crafting bench in Co-Op mode. But, after the new 1.6 version update of Genshin Impact, players will be able to use it for crafting, while the availability of the recipes for the same will solely depend on the player’s in-game progress.
In addition to the crafting bench, the new version will bring a feature in which if a traveler crafts while being in an in-game friend’s world, he/she will be able to keep the item they have crafted on their return to their world in-game.
Locating Co-Op Teammates faster
The developers will bring a feature in the 1.6 version update through which players will be able to see the location of their teammates with a marker on the edge of the map whenever they are not in the range of the currently displayed map area. The players can use the marker to locate the faraway teammates in Co-Op mode quickly.
Apart from these additions and optimizations, developers also mentioned a new Companion move-in feature, but they did not reveal further details.
