Genshin Impact version 1.2 is finally just around the corner, which means a whole lot of changes are inbound for Mihoyo’s popular RPG.
However, before we get a chance to play as the two brand new characters – Albedo and Ganyu – Mihoyo obviously has to update the game, which is far easier said than done. As a result, Genshin Impact servers are due to go down for maintenance tomorrow evening – but don’t worry, you’ll be rewarded with 300 free Primogems to compensate for the downtime.
Mihoyo recently published a blog post on its official forum to break down the maintenance session scheduled for tomorrow, featuring details on the start time, player eligibility for free Primogems, and more.
The maintenance is set to begin at 6am (GMT+8) on Wednesday, December 23, and is expected to last about five hours in total. Players will receive 60 Primogems for every hour the servers are down, but will be given a minimum of 300 even if Mihoyo updates the game faster than expected. All players above Adventure Rank 5 are eligible to receive the reward, which must be claimed within 30 days of Mihoyo sending it.
