Where to watch the stream, schedule countdown (August 20 update)
The Genshin Impact livestream for Version 2.1 will be happening on the JRPG’s Twitch channel on August 20. At 9 AM EST / 6 AM PST. Click here for conversions to other time zones. And here’s a countdown. The stream should be a bit less long than an hour.
Note that the stream will also be shown on the Genshin Impact official YouTube channel. But only three hours after the Twitch stream.
Genshin Impact Version 2.1 Livestream content
Here’s what to expect on stream. First, we’ll hear which banner will come first between The Raiden Shogun or Sangonomiya Kokomi. According to data mined information from the Version 2.1 Beta Test, The Shogun will be first. But these things are always subject to change.
The 2.1 live stream should also reveal the final islands of the Inazuma region, alongside new Archon Quests, new Weekly and World Bosses, and the fishing system. Several new Events will be introduced as well. A special trailer for Aloy from Horizon should also be revealed.
Last but not least, miHoYo should detail the 1st year anniversary plans of Genshin Impact on this stream. We’ll also get the usual Primogems redeem codes.

MiHoYo partnering up with Twitch for Genshin showcases
From release until Version 1.6, the Genshin Impact English live streams have all happened on YouTube. However, since 1.7/2.0 and the launch of Inazuma, it looks like Twitch and miHoYo joined hands for an exclusive contract. The 2.1 live stream will be released only a few hours later on YouTube.
Moreover, the fact that the English stream is happening simultaneously with the Chinese stream on Bilibili means I and other translators don’t need to live translate anymore. (In my case, I’d do it from the Japanese official Twitter’s summary). In any case, stay tuned as we’ll cover all the juicy bits from the stream.
Genshin Impact is available on PC, PS4, PS5, iOS, and Android. A Nintendo Switch version is also in development. Genshin Impact Version 2.1 should launch on September 1, 2021.
