Genshin Impact developer miYoHo has declared that players will have the option to pre-install the game’s impending 1.3 update from Monday, two days before the full update is available.
The reason why you need to pre-install this update is to save time when the real update lands, since you won’t need to download a huge load of data. The actual update will be available on Wednesday, the 3rd of February.
The eagerly awaited Genshin Impact 1.3 update will add controller support, as well as presenting another 5-Star character called Xiao. You can see Xiao in real life in the trailer above.
However, the launch of the update will be set by a host of login rewards, including ten free Intertwined Fates, 1600 Primogems, and an additional slot for an extra 4-Star character.
As soon as the pre-installation becomes available, a button will appear in the game’s title screen, so keep your eyes stripped.
