Genshin Impact version 1.3 release date kicks off this week with the official pre-load, and will be available across both PC and Mobile.
The latest major update will also bring the Xiao Banner, amongst other things to the wildly popular free-to-play hit game.
According to Genshin Impact’s game developer, MiHoYo, users will be able to pre-load and test the game from the 1st of February at around 3 am GMT.
PC players will be able to play the game while getting ready for the pre-load with a few limitations.
“Travellers on PC can still play the game while pre-installing game resources. Pre-installation will take up a certain amount of your network’s bandwidth, so it’s best to make sure you have a good network connection before beginning pre-installation.
Travelers on mobile platforms will be unable to play the game while pre-installing game resources. It’s recommended that Travelers complete any Domains or other challenges they wish to finish first before beginning the pre-installation process. “After the pre-installation process is complete, Travelers can experience the new version content faster once the update maintenance period is finished”mentioned developer, MiHoYo, in a statement.
