We are now just a few days away from the launch of Genshin Impact 2.4!
The adventure will return to Liyue for the Lantern Rite and we will take on the abysmal land of Enkanomiya.
To be fully prepared for launch day, here's how to preload Genshin Impact 2.4 ahead of time to beat the rush!
Genshin Impact 2.4 Release Date
Genshin Impact 2.4 will go live on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, at 11:00 am Server Time.
- January 4, 7:00 p.m. PDT

The server's maintenance takes around five hours, with players being compensated 300 Primogems for the downtime.
Genshin Impact 2.4 File Size
Genshin Impact Update 2.4 files are around 6 GB for PC players.
In the case of mobile players, the IOS file size is 3.44 GB, and 3.8 GB for Android.
This information is gathered from the preload information posted on those platforms.
How to Preload Genshin 2.4
On PC, you have to boot up the game launcher and click on the "Game Pre-Installation" option on the screen.
After this, the game update should automatically install. Travelers can still play while pre-installing game resources.
Pre-installation will take up a certain amount of your network's bandwidth, so it's best to make sure you have a good network connection.
Mobile players need to log into your account and go to the "Paimon Menu." Go to settings, then click "Pre-Install Resource Package."
If this doesn't work, you may spot the package on the main menu after you've logged in. Just click on it to get everything installed.
Travelers in Mobile cannot play the game while they are downloading resources, so it's best to start the process when you're taking a break or overnight.
Unfortunately for Playstation travelers, there is no option to pre-load the game yet.
We'll update if that changes ahead of launch day.
