Genshin Impact New Update 2.1 Pre-Installation Available, Here’s How

Genshin Impact 2.1 is all set to launch on September 1, 2021, which is hardly 3 days away now. As expected, fans are getting a little impatient and want to get it as soon as possible. After all, Genshin Impact has a huge fan base and is one of the most trending games in the world. So, we have some great news for fans who just can’t wait to check out the new update as pre-installation times have been revealed.

Pre-Installation Schedule

Genshin Impact 2.1 pre-installation feature will be accessible from 11:00 (UTC+8) or 7am ET on August 30. This feature hasn’t been made available to fans ever since Genshin Impact 1.3 update. It is possible miHoYo is making this feature available for this update in efforts to celebrate its first anniversary.

“Dear Travelers, to bring Travelers a better gaming experience, the developers will soon make a pre-installation function available on PC and mobile platforms”, tweeted @GenshinImpact

As of now, pre installation is available for only PC and Mobile version of Genshin Impact. It might also be available for PlayStation but we have no information regarding that.
