Genshin Impact players are counting down the days until the release of Version 1.3, which brings with it loads of new seasonal content to enjoy alongside the highly anticipated arrival of Xiao as a playable character. With the massive version update releasing next week, developer miHoYo has outlined how to pre-install the Version 1.3 update, and when we’ll be able to do so.
Genshin Impact developer miHoYo took to its official website to break down how players will be able to pre-install files for the Version 1.3 update. According to the blog post, the pre-installation function for the update will be available starting on February 1st on all platforms.
The pre-installation function for the Version 1.3 update will be available for open testing on both mobile and PC platforms.

Those playing on the PC platform, as always, have things the easiest. Updating the game launcher will present the player with a “Game Pre-Installation” button to the left of the regular “Launch” button, and players will be able to pre-install files while they play the game. As for mobile users, players on Android and iOS devices will need to go o the “Paimon Menu,” then to settings, select “Other,” and then press the button that says “Pre-Install Resource Package.” Mobile users won’t be able to play the game while pre-installing files, so miHoYo recommends to bang out those Domain & Boss runs before doing so.
Genshin Impact Version 1.3 is slated to release on February 3rd, 2021. The game is now available for PC, PS4, and Android & iOS devices.
