September 15, 2022: The Genshin Impact 3.1 livestream is official. Check out the countdown below for details.

Hoyoverse has confirmed that the next few updates, from 3.1 to 3.3, will be at five-week intervals instead of six to catch up after their delay earlier in the year, and Version 3.1 drops at the end of September. Here's what we know about the Genshin Impact 3.1 livestream so far.


Version 3.1 will expand the latest region of Sumeru, and add in a desert area with pyramids and characters based on Egyptian design, like Cyno and Candace. Information for the next update is thin on the ground at the moment and is all based on leaks and rumours. There will be new events, and likely some reruns, but nothing is confirmed until the stream.

While we wait for confirmation of anything involved with Version 3.1, we recommend checking out guides for the latest characters with our Dori build, Collei build, and Tighnari build ideas. And bookmark Genshin Impact promo codes page while you're at it. New codes arrive during the livestream detailed below.

Maintenance time

So far, there is no maintenance downtime scheduled, but this will likely be announced in the Special Program livestream, if not before. Usually, the game goes down for maintenance at 11 PM local time the night before the release of a new update. Players will receive some Primogems as an apology for this.

Genshin Impact Version 3.1 banners

There isn't anyone completely confirmed by Hoyoverse just yet, but newly announced characters Cyno and Candace are strongly rumoured to release in the first half of Version 3.1, with Nilou in the second.

Nilou and Cyno will be 5-Star characters with their own banners, flanked by previous 5-Star character reruns. It is thought that given Zhongli's rerun and Nahida's release down the line, that Venti and possibly Raiden Shogun will get reruns to allow newer players to pull them.


Other rumours suggest Eula, Tartaglia, Shenhe, and Hu Tao as rerun banners.

Version 3.1 livestream promo codes

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


Check out our Genshin Impact tier list to see how your team matches up, and Dori's materials to get a head start for her release. Sumeru brought in the new Dendro element, and tons of new events with the current Version 3.0, too.
