When Does Genshin Impact 3.0 Start

The Genshin Impact 3.0 update is set to kick off on Wednesday, August 24th, 2022 or on Tuesday, August 23rd, depending on your time zone. However, before the update, there will be scheduled server maintenance, which will cause a downtime period. The developers, HoYoverse, will need to bring the servers down for five hours in order to deploy the update. That’s because they need to make sure that everything is working flawlessly. The downtime will start at 12 am CEST (on August 24th) / 11 pm BST (August 23rd) / 6 pm ET (August 23rd) / 3 pm PT (August 23rd).

The maintenance is expected to last for around five hours. Thus, the servers should come back online at around 5 am CEST (on August 24th) / 4 am BST (August 24th) / 11 pm ET (August 23rd) / 8 pm PT (August 23rd). Once the servers are up again, you will be able to play the 3.0 update. Called “The Morn a Thousand Roses Bring”, the new update is one of the biggest yet. The most important feature of the 3.0 update is a brand new region of Sumeru. Then, there’s the release of the new Dendro element, several new events, characters, and much more.

Also, we will receive several new equipable items. This includes new artifact sets, two new bows, and a new set of 4-Star weapons in a distinct Sumerian design. With that said, that’s all you need to know about Genshin Impact 3.0 release date & time.

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
