August 11: Hoyoverse have confirmed the time of the 3.0 stream!

Genshin's next update will be the huge Version 3.0, and here's the lowdown on the Genshin Impact 3.0 livestream - including what to expect, and when to watch it.


To show what's coming up in each new version update, Hoyoverse releases a livestream featuring voice actors of the characters involved, that shows off new banners, events, and additions to the game. The streams give in-detail looks at any new story and hangout quests, as well as weapons being added to the banners.

While we wait for confirmation of anything involved with Version 3.0, we recommend building up the latest new character Shikanoin Heizou, and checking for the latest promo codes. There's the 2.8 Summertime Odyssey events too, such as Mona's Ancient Azure Stars quest.

The 3.0 update is likely to begin on August 24, if we follow the usual schedule, and the time that Yoimiya's rerun banner ends.

The livestream will air on August 13, as August 12 is a holiday for the Hoyoverse team. It will take place at 8 AM UTC-4 - that's 1 PM BST for us over here.

Maintenance Time

So far, there is no maintenance downtime scheduled, but this will likely be announced in the Special Program livestream, if not before.

Genshin Impact Version 3.0 Banners

There are no confirmed characters yet - but there are some very strong rumours and leaks pertaining to who we will see in the next update's banners.


It is highly likely that new 5-Star character Tighnari will lead with a new banner, possibly featuring new 4-Stars Collei and Dori. They may be split over two banners in the 3.0 update. Zhongli and Ganyu are rumoured to be the 5-Star reruns.

Genshin Impact Version 3.0 Events

Genshin's leakers have been revealing potential events left, right, and center, but the strongest rumours, for now, seem to be that the events will have a distinctly natural theme, centered around taking photos and carving wooden statues.


Version 3.0 Livestream Promo Codes

As always, there will be three new promo codes to get some free Primogems and XP materials that release during the stream. These will be limited time, so when they come out, use them as quick as possible!
