GENSHIN Impact will soon receive the long-awaited 3.0 update and fans are excited for all the additional content on offer.
A brand new region of Sumeru was featured in Saturday’s (13 August) livestream, along with additional parts of the main story, three new characters and a new elemental type.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Genshin Impact 3.0 update.
When will Genshin Impact 3.0 update be released?
The Genshin Impact servers will be shut down on August 23rd, 2022 at 23:00 UK time to begin processing the new update.
They will be unavailable for about five hours and will return with the new update ready to go Wednesday, 24.8 at 4 am In the United Kingdom.
It may take a little longer, but if you want to start as soon as the update is released, you should be ready by that time.
How long until the next major Genshin Impact update?
Genshin Impact’s next major update isn’t planned for long, but minor updates will be added to version 3.0 to keep things fresh.
Each update used to come about every six weeks, but 3.0 hopes to shorten that time and bring a lot more content to everyone.
However, it also means that the available characters will be one week less than usual, so you’d better start playing gacha soon.
This is the schedule for the rest of 2022.
- update 3.0 – August 24th to September 27th
- Update 3.1 – September 28th to November 1st
- Update 3.2 – November 2nd to December 6th
- Update 3.3 – from December 7th
The schedule for 2023 and beyond is yet to be announced.
However, Hoyoverse stated that the new story for Sumeru will be completed by the end of the 3.2 update.
This means that updates could return to a six-week basis once the story is complete.
We’ll have to keep an eye on the official announcements for more.
