It is almost time for the Genshin Impact 3.0 Livestream, the Special Program which gives us an in-depth look into the next update.

Broadcasted on the official twitch channel, this introduction to the new Sumeru nation and Dendro element should be a massive one.

And besides just getting informed on what Genshin Impact 3.0 has to offer, players will also get Promo Codes for free Primogems along the way.

Here is everything you need to know about version 3.0 Special Program.


Latest – New Sumeru Promotional Video Gives a Look Ahead

Along with the official announcement of the Genshin Impact 3.0 Livestream, Hoyoverse released a video in which we can see at least 8 new Sumeru Characters in action.

The narrator is Nahida, who we think is the Dendro Archon, a little girl with grey hair.

These are the characters we can see in this video in order of appearance:

  • Tighnari: 5-star Dendro
  • Collei: 4-star Dendro
  • Al Haitham: 5-star Dendro
  • Dori: 4-star Electro
  • Cyno: 5-star Electro
  • Dehya: 5-Star Pyro
  • Nilou: 5-star Hydro
  • Nahida: 5-star Dendro

The video with anime-type scenes is an innovative way to introduce new characters by Hoyoverse.

Genshin Impact 3.0 Livestream Release Date

It seems that Hoyoverse is moving Genshin Livestreams from Fridays to Saturdays, perhaps trying to reach more of an audience.

With that in mind, the Genshin Impact 3.0 Livestream will go live on August 13 at 8 pm server time (Chinese Standard Time).

In other regions, this translates to:

  • August 13, at 8 am EST
  • August 13, at 1 PM GMT
  • August 13, at 5 am PT
