Play mini-games and earn amazing rewards in upcoming Genshin Impact event

Travelers with an Adventure Rank 20 will be able to participate in the event. This event will kick start on June 14, 2021, and will last till June 24. Players can earn primogems, character XP materials, Event Namecard, Mora, and more from the event shop through special currency.

The new mini-game will be very similar to the hide and seek that everyone has played in real life. Gamers can tune into the event and they will be thrown into 2 teams between Rebel and Hunters. Hunters have to run around the map and looking for all the hiding Rebels. If the Hunters catch every rebel, then they will attain victory.

On the flip side, Rebels will have to use disguise and morph into objects. This will allow them to camouflage with the environment. If they stay hidden until the timer expires, they will attain victory over the Hunter. Every character’s talent will be changed to new windward arts.

These arts will offer unique abilities to Rebel, who can choose from abilities like Disguise, Transparency, and Lay Bait. The disguise’s ability will allow you to transform into a randomized object. Lay Bait will place a small trap, which can obscure the hunter’s vision when they interact with it. The last spell, Transparency, will allow them to turn invisible but Rebels will lose disguise and bait and the hunter’s ability will affect them.
