The developers of Genshin Impact, miHoYo, have announced a preview livestream of the upcoming Version 2.0 for this Friday, July 9th. While the Twitter post does not mention anything about Version 2.0 per se, it’s highly likely that the “event” will clue us in on what we can expect to see in the new content drop. After all, there have been so many leaks and rumors swirling around the internet, it’s high time the devs either squash or confirm some of them.
Genshin Impact Preview Stream Announced for July 9th
First off, the important stuff: when and where can you watch the latest Genshin Impact preview stream. Well, it’s starting on Friday, July 9th, at 8 AM (UTC-4), which translates to 5 AM Pacific/8 AM Eastern/2 PM Central European. It will be on the game’s official Twitch channel. If you don’t feel like tuning in live, that’s fine, because the full thing will be uploaded to the Genshin YouTube on July 9 at 12 PM (UTC-4), aka 9 AM Pacific/12 PM Eastern/6 PM Central European. In other words, don’t worry, you can’t possibly miss it.
Now, as for what they’re going to show us in the live stream, that’s truly anybody’s guess at this stage. As I’ve said, we’re most likely getting more information about the upcoming and confusingly named version 2.0. The fan base has been abuzz with rumors and leaks about the Inazuma region, cross-saving, and a whole bunch of other stuff. I’m fairly certain that the livestream is going to dash some hopes, but will also confirm a lot of the leaked info. We’ll have to wait and see.
Lastly, I think we might get an update on the Switch version of Genshin Impact. It has been in the works for a while now, and has even suffered a delay recently. It stands to reason they’ll at least let fans know how far along the port is. We’ll see tomorrow.
