Genshin Impact 1.3 is reportedly being released very soon and will come with fan-requested features as well as the new Xiao banner event.
Not only have the developers at MiHoYo confirmed that they will make the game better for mobile fans, but they also plan to make it easier to update the game on Android and iOS.
This will be done in advance of the introduction of Genshin Impact 1.3. The update itself adds new controller support for those who want to use it on iOS.
About the upcoming changes, MiHoYo told fans this week: “We will be releasing the pre-installation on mobile devices before the update to version 1.3. This will reduce the time it takes to update game resources.
“You can get the Resource Pack from the latest version of the game from the Sign In menu or Other> Resource Pack prior to installation.
“You must still use the App Store or Google Play Store to download the latest game installer package. The pre-installed resources take effect automatically as soon as the previous installation has been overwritten. We’ll be giving more detailed instructions on this feature shortly. “
As for the new controller support, the development team added: “The developers have heard your screams – from version 1.3, devices with an operating system updated to iOS 14 or higher now support the Xbox Wireless Controller (Bluetooth version). Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, PlayStation DualShock 4 Wireless Controller and iOS-specialized Bluetooth controllers (partially supported). “
WHEN IS THE GENSHIN IMPACT 1.3 RELEASE DATE?
Although nothing has been officially confirmed, recent leaks suggest that the release date of Genshin Impact 1.3 has been set for February 3rd.
This is based on previous launch plans, but there is a chance MiHoYo will launch in the week of February 8th instead.
Leakers also believe that Genshin Impact 1.3 will feature a new character and banner event.
The Xiao banner was not officially announced, but players believe this will be the next great five-star character to make his debut.
Xiao was featured in the game as part of the beta, so fans have a pretty good idea of how the new character will play.
But until MiHoYo shares its internal plan with players, fans will have to wait and see what new content will be released in February.
We know the team is committed to releasing new updates every six to eight weeks. This means that February is the month that Genshin Impact 1.3 arrives.
The Xiao banner is also expected to be the first to be available after the 1.3 update launches.
