To take part in the event, players need to register on the event web page. For PlayStation users, the process is a bit different. Players will receive an email on their official email with a link to access the portal. If players are using third-party accounts, then they need to make sure that they have their accounts linked on the miHoYo account page. Scanning the QR code is quite simple. If you have an iOS device, just open the Camera app and point at the QR code. You’ll get a notification on top which will allow you to access the link.

For Android users, it varies based on the device you own. Some devices will detect a QR code directly from the in-built camera app. For other devices, you can scan the QR code via third-party apps. A nice alternative is to use Google Lens. Google Lens is available in the default Google app for Android. Simply open the Google App and tap on the lens icon to open the scanner. Point at the QR code and you will get an option to open the link. Do make sure that you don’t delete the email during the course of the event else you will not be able to access the portal again.

Once you have reached the portal, all you need to do is click on the Release Lantern button and you will get one of the five lanterns. There are a number of quests as well which can be completed to increase the number of lanterns you get. On the first day, you can get a maximum of four lanterns. Once you have all the five lanterns, you will be eligible for the Primogem reward. If you are not able to get enough unique lanterns on the first day, keep trying on subsequent days since the quota resets every day.

Genshin Impact is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, iOS, Android, and PC.
