The Genshin Impact Hues of the Violet Garden release date has been set for this week, and gamers who take part in the new event have a chance of adding a free Xingqiu to their squad.
New challenges and missions will be added to the game very soon, giving gamers the chance to pick up fresh items and unlock new bonuses.
The good news is that everyone will be able to help out, but there will be a few restrictions in place.
Luckily enough for us, developers Mihoyo have provided a list of prerequisites to fulfil before you can have the chance of adding Xingqiu to your squad.
Hues of the Violet Garden release date
Mihoyo has confirmed that the next Genshin Impact event, named Hues of the Violet Garden, has a scheduled release date for Thursday, April 7 at 7am PDT. That will be closer to 3pm BST for any Genshin Impact players hoping to jump in from the UK. As noted above, this new event will add several missions and challenges to the game, making it available to those who have reached a certain point in the story. To be eligible for the new missions, you must have completed the following events:
- Adventure Rank 30 or above
- Complete the “Ritou Escape Plan” part of the Archon Quest: “Chapter II: Act I – The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia.”
- Complete Kamisato Ayato’s Story Quest “Cypressus Custos Chapter: Act I – “The Firmiana Leaf Falls,” Raiden Shogun’s Story Quest “Imperatrix Umbrosa Chapter: Act II – “Transient Dreams,” and Sangonomiya Kokomi’s Story Quest “Dracaena Somnolenta Chapter: Act I – “Warriors’ Dreams Like Spring Grass Renewing” first to best enjoy the event.
- If you have not completed Kamisato Ayato, Raiden Shogun, and Sangonomiya Kokomi’s Story Quests, you can enter the event through “Quick Start.”
If you have done everything required, you will be able to help organise the Magnificent Irodori Festival. One of the more eye-catching rewards for participating is adding a free Xingqiu character to your roster. This can be done by completing the upcoming Friendship in Writing quest that will be going live during the event. The good news is that Genshin fans won’t have to rush through all the missions coming to the game, as the Violet Garden event is scheduled to stick around until April 29, providing plenty of time to unlock all the best rewards.
