Genshin Impact 1.3: Release Date, Pre-Load, and Rewards

The Genshin Impact 1.3 update is finally coming soon with the pre-load now officially done as the game prepares to make the latest update to Genshin Impact available across all available platforms.

Here's everything you need to know about Genshin Impact 1.3.

Genshin Impact Version 1.3 Release Date

Genshin Impact version 1.3 will go live on all platforms starting on February 2 at 5 PM (EST) with the maintenance expected to last until 10 PM (EST).

Update 1.3 will include all of the expected additions to the game. This includes the Five Flushes of Fortune event, Xiao, and a couple of new World Quests that are sure to take up a lot of your time as well.

Are There Genshin Impact Version 1.3 Maintenance Rewards?

Yes. There are.

As Genshin Impact becomes available for up to five hours, players will be rewarded for not being able to get their gacha fix with a 300 Primogems reward for simply logging back into the game as soon as it's up.

Players will have 30 days from the date Update 1.3 goes live to claim the reward.

Genshin Impact Version 1.3 Update Pre-Load Details

Luckily, it is possible to pre-load Genshin Impact Version 1.3 so you won't have to wait that long to enjoy it once it goes live.

Even if the update is not live yet, you can pre-load the latest update so you can prepare your PC or mobile device for once it finally goes live.

To do this on the PC, all you have to do is to click on the "Game Pre-Installation" button that's found on the left of the "Launch" button.

On mobile devices, you'll have to click on the small cloud icon found on the log-in button. Alternatively, you can also check out the "Other" tab on the "Settings" menu in-game and click on the "Pre-Install Resource Package" directly.

Unfortunately, there's no way to pre-load the update on the PlayStation 4 as of yet.

Doing this will automatically update Genshin Impact on your device so that when it goes live, all you have to do is to click the "Update" button and install Version 1.3 without having to wait around for too long.

Even if you don't manage to complete the pre-load process, the update will still pick up right from where you left off.
