The Genshin Impact Version 4.4 update has arrived, bringing the much-anticipated return of the Lantern Rite Festival! In this year’s festivities, players will get to know a lively new character, reunite with old friends and Adepti alike, participate in fun-filled events, and reap bountiful rewards.

Similar to how the Fontinalia Festival is to Fontaine and the Windblume Festival is to Mondstadt, the Lantern Rite holds immense cultural significance in Liyue. So, with a crackling firecracker in one hand and a soaring kite in the other, dive headfirst into the vibrant celebration and embrace the spirit of the Lantern Rite Festival!

Genshin Impact Lantern Rite 2024 is live!

The latest update heralds the arrival of the fourth edition of the Lantern Rite, titled, “Vibrant Harriers Aloft in Spring Breeze”. Today, you can participate in the first Act of the Lantern Rite Quest and challenge the first two mini-game challenges:

  • Paper-Shadows A-Forging:
    • A unique tabletop game centred around helping Guoba and Yuegui gather ingredients for delectable Liyue dishes
  • Joyful Beasts and Their Auspices:
    • A thrilling co-op challenge with three distinct stages

Coinciding with the Lunar New Year, the Lantern Rite Festival is set to unfold alongside the Genshin Impact Version 4.4 update, spanning from 5 February to 25 February 2024.
