Genshin Impact 1.5 Release Date Revealed: Will The Eula, Yan Fei, Zhongli Banner Leaks Happen?

miHoYo officially revealed on April 3 the release date for Genshin Impact Ver 1.5, through the release schedule of the upcoming Childe Banner rerun – which of the leaks so far will turn out true, and will we get Eula, Yan Fei, and the Housing System in Genshin Impact 1.5? All explanations below.

When’s the release date of Genshin Impact 1.5?

Right now, the Venti banner rerun in Genshin Impact, ending on April 6, was three weeks long. Moreover, the Childe banner, just detailed by the Japanese Genshin Twitter, will be three weeks as well, ending on April 27.

In other words, we’ll get maintenance on April 27, and a brand new banner will launch together with a new version of Genshin Impact, Ver 1.5, on April 27.

  • LEAKS – Story quest details for Eula

Are the previous leaks real?

As you already know, several leaks data mined from the Genshin Impact 1.5 Beta have been revealed these past weeks. Most notably there are two new characters, Cryo Claymore 5* waifu Eula, and Pyro Catalyst 4* waifu Yan Fei. A housing system was also shared, and we heard about a Zhongli banner rerun, part 2 for his Story quest, and a new weekly boss called Azhdaha.

First off, it’s important to understand these leaks are real and have been confirmed and data mined from the Genshin Impact 1.5 Beta. Which stayed accessible by data miners even after the 1.5 Private Beta Test was shut down.

However, the problem is, there is in fact no guarantee miHoYo will implement the content from the 1.5 Beta into the official 1.5 of Genshin Impact. This is the main reason why you shouldn’t raise your expectations through on leaks.

Eula, Yan Fei, Housing, Azhdaha boss – What will be coming with Genshin Impact 1.5?

For now, we don’t know. If for one reason or another, Eula, Yanfei, the Housing System, or other leaked features still need work, they won’t be released with the official launch of Genshin Impact 1.5. Simple as that.

However, it’s very likely that at least, Eula and Yan Fei will be released. Seeing Ver 1.4 only added Rosaria as a new playable character. Rosaria isn’t even brand new too as she already appeared in 1.2, but wasn’t added to a banner until now.

  • INAZUMA – Release date, characters, lore details so far

Adding Azhdaha in 1.5 would make sense too, as the boss has been hinted in the game these past months. Most notably with the Geovishaps and Where to Find Them event.

Lastly, the Housing System has already been teased in the past by miHoYo, alongside costumes, or skins as cool kids call them, and farming.

However, we will only be certain whether all this content is coming or not once we’ve seen the livestream for 1.5. miHoYo should announce in the next few weeks the date of the Genshin Impact 1.5 livestream. We’ll be sure to tell you about it as soon as possible, so stay tuned on DualShockers.

Genshin Impact is available on PC, PS4, and mobile. The game is playable on PS5 via retro compatibility, but an actual PS5 version will launch soon. Genshin Impact was also announced on Switch, but with no release date yet. (Credits to Dimbreath for the feature image)
