Every six weeks, a new update comes to Genshin Impact, usually introducing new characters, banners, events for players to take part in, and fresh storylines to delve into. Before all that, though, the Genshin Impact 2.7 livestream countdown needs to come and go, letting us know exactly what to expect before the update goes live.
With it being close, we have everything you need to know about when it is due to begin, how to watch it, and what promo codes will be given out during it.
If you're curious about what's to come and what banners have already happened, check out our Genshin Impact banner schedule.
Genshin Impact 2.7 Livestream Start Time Countdown
The Genshin Impact 2.7 Livestream will be on May 20, 2022 at 8 PM server time (Chinese Standard Time), which is 8 AM ET and 1 PM BST. Hoyoverse confirmed the day before that the stream had a new release date.
The Genshin Impact 2.7 livestream doesn't follow in the footsteps of every other, taking place much more than six weeks after the last.
After the extensive delay from April 29, 2022, it's good to see a release date for the 2.7 livestream now confirmed.
How to Watch Livestream
If you want to watch the livestream to check out all of the new content, including the banners, there are a few ways to do it.
The Genshin Impact 2.7 Livestream will be broadcast on the Genshin Impact Twitch Channel, the Genshin Impact Tik Tok account, and you can watch it after it's finished whenever you want via the Genshin Impact YouTube Channel from 11 AM ET/4 PM BST.
Are There Genshin Impact 2.7 Promo Codes?
You'll want to check out the Genshin Impact 2.7 Livestream when it's happening not just for the patch details, but for the exclusive 2.7 promo codes you can redeem right there and then.
You'll be able to grab codes for Primogems and other resources during the breaks in the show. The livestream will be going for about 30 minutes, so keep your eye out for them - or just refresh this after the stream as ended to see them all in one handy place.
You'll need to be quick on the draw, though, as codes from the livestream will only be active for 24 hours. Leave it too late and you'll miss out.
Genshin Impact 2.7 Leaked Banners
For most, the main focus of the Genshin Impact 2.7 livestream is the reveal of the new banners and events that'll come to the game.
The update won't go live for another week and a half, but the livestream will reveal what to expect. Thanks to the ever-present leaks, which have been coming for a few weeks now, we know what banners are to be included in the 2.7 update.
- 2.7 will introduce Yelan and Kuki Shinobu as the main banners
- The banner rerun will be Arataki Itto
- The weapon banner will be the 5-star bow Aqua Simulacra
If you want to see what else will come during 2.7, including what we're sure will be a collection of fun events, be sure to tune into the livestream. We'll update you with all the official details here once we have them.
