Missed out on the Genshin Impact x KFC crossover event? You can grab new recipes in update 1.4


Hu Tao and Hot Wings: An epic combination

This weekend saw the planned Genshin Impact x KFC crossover event turn into something of a small disaster, as several restaurants in China were forced to close their doors after legions upon legions of GI fans turned up to bag exclusive in-game and physical items for the mega-successful gacha title.

If you weren't able to make it out to the Hangzhou district this weekend, don't sweat it, as developer miHoYo has announced that players logging into Genshin Impact 1.4 will be able to get hold of some new in-game recipes, inspired by the fast-food joint's famous Original Recipe Chicken featuring Seven Herbs and Spices - which is fully warranting of those capital letters.

Each day of the "Outland Gastronomy" login event - a feature of the highly anticipated Update 1.4 - will offer rewards ranging from Hero's Wit bonuses, to extra Primogems, Mora, and brand new Recipes. Siliconera additionally reports that any player logging into GI two days in a row will automatically receive the "Exotic Gourmet" recipe book, which will seemingly feature meals inspired by the KFC menu...

...Exotic Gourmet. It's called a "Zinger Tower".

Anyway, there you have it, all the anime fried chicken your party can eat, and you didn't have to wait in line, shout at any employees, or risk boosting one of the greatest health pandemics in documented human history in order to receive it. As for the other exclusive in-game items from the in-store events, they are expected to be made available to Genshin Impact players this summer. The physical items? I'm afraid it's the scalper's market for most.
