Genshin Impact Version 4.6 will be released on April 24th. Developers recently released a pre-installation function which makes the whole update process easier. Players can download resources for future updates in advance. This feature is available for both PC and mobile devices.

According to the official Genshin Impact Twitter, servers will undergo maintenance at 06:00 (UTC+8) on April 24th (Thursday). Maintenance usually takes somewhere around five hours so Version 4.6 will be available 11:00 (UTC+8).
