Last week, miHoYo revealed the Genshin Impact (Free) version 2.2 release date. This update will bring the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration featuring Aloy into the world of Genshin Impact on iOS, Android, and PC platforms following its debut on PlayStation in version 2.1. Details for the collaboration are here. Genshin Impact version 2.2 ‘Into the Perilous Labyrinth of Fog’ releases this week on October 13th for all platforms and it can now be pre-installed on mobile and PC platforms. Version 2.2 brings the last of the six major islands of Inazuma, a new playable character Thoma, new challenges, mini-games, and more. The Genshin Impact version 2.2 download size is 3.44GB on iOS. Watch the Genshin Impact 2.2 trailer below:

To pre-download this update on iOS and Android, you can either tap the pre-install icon on the bottom left of the login screen or from the other settings screen in the Paimon menu in-game. On PC, once you update the client, you can click the pre-installation button after launching Genshin Impact. Pre-downloading has just gone live so if you were in-game, quit out and launch the client again to initiate it. As with prior updates, pre-installation is not live on PS5 and PS4 yet. More details for Genshin Impact version 2.2 are here. I’m looking forward to trying to get Hu Tao again. If you missed the concert, check it out below:

If you haven’t checked out Genshin Impact yet, you can download it for free on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here. The PC version is available on the official website here and the Epic Games Store. If you play on iOS, with iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5, you can now use PS5 and Xbox Series X|S controllers to play Genshin Impact. We featured Genshin Impact as our Game of the Week when it released and awarded it our 2020 Game of the Year. Have you been playing Genshin Impact regularly and what did you think of the concert?
