How to Pre-Install Genshin Impact 2.8 Update on PC & Mobile

To pre-install the Genshin Impact 2.8 update on PC and mobile, you just have to go through a few simple steps. On PC, once the pre-installation becomes available, the first thing you need to do is update the Genshin launcher. Once you do that, open the launcher and you should see the “Game Pre-installation” button next to the “Launch” button. Click that and wait for the process to finish up and boom, you’re done. Just as a reminder, the option to install Update 2.8 ahead of time will be available starting Monday, July 11th.

As for the mobile, aka iOS or Android, things are slightly different. In fact, you have two avenues. First off, open the game. Then, find the “Pre-Install Resource Package” button in the bottom corner of the screen. Tap it to start the pre-installation. Alternatively, to pre-install Genshin Impact 2.8 on mobile, you can go into the Paimon Menu, then Settings, then Other. Find the “Pre-Install Resource Package” option here and tap that. Just wait for the download and installation processes to wrap up, and you’ll be good to go.

And, yeah, that’s how you pre-install the upcoming Genshin Impact update on PC and mobile. The same will probably hold true for future updates, too. As for why you should even go through the trouble, well, it’s not a must. However, it does ultimately cut down the time you’ll need to start playing the new content once it officially launches.
