What Time Does Genshin Impact 2.0 Release?

Update 2.0 will launch following a maintenance window that begins at 11 PM BST later today, July 20th.

How Long Is Genshin Impact 2.0 Maintenance?

Unfortunately, you're looking at a long wait. The game's servers will be down for around five hours while the patch is rolled out.

The good news is that we'll be compensated for our time away. Players can snag 300 Primogems the next time they log in, as long as it's within thirty days


Can You Preload Genshin Impact 2.0?

If you're on PC or mobile, you can pre-load the update so you're ready for when maintenance ends. On your phone, the update comes in at around 2 GB.

On PC, you can only preload through Mihoyo's launcher.

Console players, alas, no preload for you. Maybe with 3.0, eh?
