Genshin Impact Version 1.6 Pre-Install Details Revealed
Genshin Impact is prepping its players for some fun in the sun with the game’s upcoming Version 1.6 update. Dubbed Midsummer Island Adventure, the new content will be shipping out in a few days, providing players with a new limited-time area to explore, new weapons to acquire, bosses to face, and fabulous new outfits to obtain. To prepare for Version 1.6, developer miHoYo has revealed how to go about pre-installing the new update ahead of its official release.
Genshin Impact developer miHoYo took to its blog site to detail how to pre-install Version 1.6. PC players have it easy as usual, with an option to pre-install the update available as a button right next to the launch button on the game’s client. Pressing it will allow players to download the roughly 8gb of content, and the game can be played while the update downloads. This is really only relevant to those using the original game client for Genshin Impact, as the Epic Games Store version will be releasing alongside the Version 1.6 update.
The pre-installation function is now available on both PC and mobile platforms.

The Genshin Impact Version 1.6 pre-install function is also available for Android & iOS platforms. To initialize the pre-install, players will need to go to the Paimon Menu > Settings > Other > Pre-Install Resource Package. Alternatively, players can hit the Pre-Install Resource Package icon in the bottom-left corner of the login screen.
Genshin Impact Version 1.6 is slated to release on June 9, 2021. The game is currently available for PC, PS4, PS5, and Android & iOS devices.
