Genshin Impact 2.1 Countdown: Release Time/Date, Free Primogems, Aloy, Maintenance Schedule

miHoYo has announced that the maintenance will be starting on September 1st at 6 am (UTC+8). If you live in other time zones, this will be equivalent to 3 pm PST, 6 pm EST, and 11 pm BST on August 31st.

The maintenance will be lasting for 5 hours and players will be getting a total of 60 Primogems each for each hour. That means, in total, they will be getting 300 Primogems. If by any chance the maintenance finishes early, then they will still get 300 Primogems.

The maintenance will be over by 11 am (UTC+8) so players will be able to log in to the game by then. Preloads are already live, so players can download the update beforehand to make sure they don’t have to wait once the update goes live. With the arrival of Aloy, characters such as Raiden Shogun, Sara, new regions, weapons, and much more, the update will surely be adding tons of new stuff in the game.
