How to preinstall Genshin Impact 3.1
Genshin Impact releases its version 3.1 on September 28th after the expected maintenance downtime. This period is typically up to five hours, but can sometimes be longer if queue times reach server capacity. For this reason, pre-installing the patch is a good idea as it reduces server load – which in turn can result in very slow download times if you wait for the last moment to update.
To preinstall Genshin Impact update 3.1 on your mobile devices, you can choose one of the two options. The easiest way is to tap the Preinstall Resource Pack icon in the lower left corner of the login screen.
The other option is available in the in-game Paimon menu. From there, go to Settings and under the Other tab, select Preinstall Package. That way, all the files you need are pre-downloaded and all you have to do is install a small update on release day.
For PC gamers, the quality of life has changed quite a bit with this new update. You can pre-install the game from the Genshin Impact desktop launcher, but if that doesn’t work, a new “Hamburger” menu is also added to the right of the “Start” button with the following options:
- installation location
- Repair now
- Delete downloaded resources
- Check for game updates
This last option in the list will help you pre-install the game if for some reason the default button doesn’t work. Unfortunately, there is still no way to pre-install the new update for PlayStation players.
