Genshin Impact 1.5 Leaks - What's The Housing System And Furniture Shop?

What we learned about the housing system in Genshin Impact.

The private beta test for Genshin Impact Ver 1.5 has launched, and as usual, several leaks have been revealed – in particular, we learned that the housing system previously teased by miHoYo is included in the Beta. Alongside a new shop to buy furniture blueprints. Here’s what we know from the leaks.

What’s the housing system from the 1.5 leaks?

On March 16, Genshin Impact leaks sharers on Twitter published  screenshots that were leaked by one or several players of the Chinese private beta test for 1.5. Some of the screenshots most notably focus on the housing system, which will allow players to own and decorate their own house in-game.

The first screenshot shows a brand new shop, which sells blueprints of furniture to craft and use in the housing system. Note that the shop uses a brand new currency. We don’t know yet if players will be able to freely place furniture in their houses. Or if furniture items are automatically placed after crafting. It’s also unclear how to obtain the new currency.

Next, we have a screenshot of a new feature which we’ll temporarily call the bird companion. This most notably lets you teleport to the house. From that, we can speculate that the house owned by players is not on the world map itself, but on a separate map, similar to Domains.

Update: Additional leaks have surfaced, this time showing what could be the current housing system’s interface. The background looks very similar to Domain’s, and adds credence to my theory above. It might be something like our own Adepti Abode or Domain.

What’s the release date for the housing system in Genshin Impact?

All of this is from leaks, and has no official release date yet. So far, Genshin Impact updates happened every six weeks. Version 1.4 is launching on March 17 (March 16 for ET). Moreover, all updates so far happened on Wednesdays. As such, it’s possible Genshin Impact version 1.5 will launch on April 28, with the housing system.

However, keep in mind that in the past, some of the content included in the Private Beta of a specific version was not included in the official launch of said version. As such, it’s possible the housing system will actually not be included in the official release of Ver 1.5. Even if it is included, don’t forget all content and information leaked is subject to change. It’s possible the housing system, the furniture shop, and the companion bird, will all be different in the official release.

Genshin Impact is available on PC, PS4, PS5 via backward compatibility, and Mobile. The game was also announced on Switch, but has no release date yet.
