Earlier today, the developers miHoYo announced a new feature for the Genshin Impact PC version – coming with the update 1.2. From now on the PC players will be able to pre-install Genshin Impact updates two days(subject to change) prior to the update’s official release.
We all have been through the struggle of downloading Genshin Impact’s new updates. Despite having a high-speed internet connection players face some common issues like slow download speed, download getting stuck, Genshin Impact launcher crashing, and others.
In the wake of that, the developers have decided to bring an Update pre-installation feature for Genshin Impact PC players. Also, the same feature will be added to Mobile and PlayStation platforms in the coming future.
Genshin Impact PCs pre-installation function is available starting December 21, 2020, at 11:00 UTC+8.
