Genshin Influence 1.Three launch date: New replace reveal, pre-load information and Xiao Banner | Gaming | Leisure

Genshin Impact 1.3 is being released as part of a major new update that will include the Xiao banner in the popular free game, among other things.

This means that a new patch will be maintained and downloaded on all platforms on February 3, 2021.

The first phase of this rollout is the official preload and test phase of the MiHoYo developers.

The Genshin Impact 1.3 subpoena has a scheduled release time on February 1st at approximately 3:00 am GMT.

From what has been shared so far, this option will be available on PC and mobile with no option available for PlayStation 4.

And if you’re playing Genshin Impact on PC, you can continue to play the game while you prepare for the preload, with some restrictions.

A message from MiHoYo stated, “Travelers on PC can continue to play the game while they preinstall the game resources. The preinstallation uses a certain part of the bandwidth of your network. So the best thing to do is to make sure you have a good network connection before starting the preinstallation.

“Travelers on mobile platforms cannot play the game while pre-installing the game resources. It is recommended that travelers complete any domains or other challenges they would like to end first before beginning the preinstallation.

“After completing the pre-installation, travelers will be able to find out the contents of the new version faster after the update maintenance period has ended.”

And as you’d expect, by preloading the new major Genshin Impact update, you’ll reduce the time it takes the game to update resources the first time you enter version 1.3, even if you haven’t fully completed the preinstallation.

To prepare for the subpoena today, the following instructions are shared:


After the pre-installation feature is available, the first thing to do is to update the Genshin Impact Launcher. After the launcher has refreshed, a “Game Preinstall” button will appear to the left of the “Start” button. Click Game Pre-Install to download the latest game resources.

After the preinstallation is complete, after the version update has been released, open the launcher again and click Update to install the game directly without downloading any additional game resources.

If the preinstallation doesn’t complete and you open the launcher again and click Refresh, the game resources will continue to download from the point at which the preinstallation progress finished.

Mobile (iOS & Android)

Method 1: Travelers can start preinstalling update resources by going to Paimon menu> Settings> Other> Preinstall Resource Pack.

Method 2: Travelers can also start pre-installing update resources by tapping the “Pre-Install Resource Package” icon in the lower left corner of the login menu.

According to MiHoYo, travelers on iOS devices must enter the App Store and tap Update when the version update is released. Android users can open the game and follow the on-screen instructions (or open Google Play and tap Update).

Another important part of this week’s Genshin Impact update will be the launch of the Xiao Banner event. This will be available after Genshin Impact 1.3 is released on February 3rd.

Xiao of Genshin Impact will be an anemo polearm user who joins Xiangling and Zhongli, making him a slightly rarer commodity.

Xiao also sounds like a powerhouse as the MiHoYo team doesn’t promote statistics on support characters.

Instead, the next five-star character in Genshin Impact will deal blast damage at high speeds, which sounds pretty exciting.

This week the development team revealed Xiao’s backstory, as well as his list of skills, which is detailed below:

Whirlwind Strike: Performs up to six rapid strikes in normal attack. The charged attack consumes stamina to perform an upward thrust.

Lemniscate Pinwheel Ride: Performs a high-speed strike, inflicting Anemo damage to enemies in its path. Can be used in the air and starts with two charges.

Bane of All Evil Elemental Burst: Upgrades a number of stats including Xiao’s jumping ability and DMG rates, which are also converted to Anemo.

The effects end when Xiao leaves the field and the character loses HP in this state.

Genshin Impact is available for free download today on PS4, PC and mobile platforms.
