With the release of Genshin Impact\’s Version 2.6 update comes the addition of a brand new region, The Chasm, along with tons of new content for players both old and new to dive into. Kamisato Ayato was released on the first day of the update, with a wave of new banners, events, quests, and even more down the line. Trying to keep track of the timeline for all of the different releases can be difficult, but luckily the full schedule of event release dates has been outlined by HoYoverse.
The 2.6 update for Genshin Impact was released on March 30, and features the highly anticipated five-star character Kamisato Ayato and the long-awaited introduction of The Chasm region. Despite only now being released, rumors and leaks about The Chasm and the story surrounding it have been circulating online for almost a full year. The region\’s title has appeared on player\’s maps in-game for quite some time, as well as being mentioned within NPC dialogue.
Alongside The Chasm is a variety of in-game events and quests, including two new permanent quests. The permanently available quests that have been released are Kamisato Ayato\’s story quest and a new Archon Quest installment. Genshin Impact\’s Kamisato Ayato and Venti\’s character banners were also made available on the first day of the update, as well as a weapon banner that features five-star weapons for both characters. Shortly after the update dropped came the \”Outside the Canvas, Inside the Lens\” event, which is a simple event that allows players to take photographs in specific locations to earn Primogems and other rewards. The \”Hues of the Violet Garden\” event is the main highlight of this update and has yet to be released, but will remain for a longer duration.
All 2.6 Event Release Dates for Genshin Impact
There are quite a few new event releases to keep an eye out for with the 2.6 update. A timeline of all Genshin Impact 2.6 events in order of release date, including the two new permanently available quests, is as follows:

Although no official timelines have been announced for the second phase of the 2.6 update, Kamisato Ayaka\’s rerun banner is expected to release shortly after the conclusion of the current character banners. Given past updates, this should happen about three weeks into the 2.6 content.
This new update is a breath of fresh air for many players that have long since reached Genshin Impact\’s lackluster endgame content. Instead, players can have fun exploring the new Chasm region and all that it has to offer, in addition to the many ongoing events. With more characters like the recently announced Yelan and Kuki Shinobu set to release in the next update, players have a lot to look forward to in Genshin Impact\’s future.
