Genshin Impact was one of the best games of 2020, be it on console, PC or mobile, and we received version 1.2 as an early Christmas gift to get the Albedo and Dragonspine area. Now the second part of the version happens with the arrival of Ganyu, but some are looking ahead to the foreseeable future and will thus know the release date of update 1.3. Here you will find everything we know about the release date of update 1.3 for Genshin Impact, and you will also find the cool new character banners.
Before version 1.2 ends and is followed next month, players should be aware that there is a Lost Riches event with Iron Coins available until January 18th. This event gives players the opportunity to have a Mini Seelie pet as a companion, so you will not want to miss out on whether you want a pink, blue or golden circle to follow you around.
While the Mini Seelie Pet is available for a limited time, below you will discover everything we know about the release date of Genshin Impact Update 1.3, and you will also find the cool new character banners.
Genshin Impact update 1.3 new characters
One of the new figures and banners for Genshin Impact Update 1.3 according to leaks is Xiao.
In addition to Xiao, it is rumored that another of the new characters and banners for Genshin Impact update 1.3 is Hu Tao.
It is important to note that none of these banners are confirmed by miHoYo.
What we do know about update 1.3 is that it comes with an event called Lantern Rite. Not much else has been confirmed other than a release window, but the prospects for Xiao and Hu Tao have thrilled fans.
Xiao was a playable character in the game’s closed beta, meanwhile Hu Tao fans have been thrilled by her leaked skills and famous Japanese voice actress.
When will Genshin Impact Update 1.3 be released?
There is no release date for Genshin Impact Update 1.3 other than February.
However, it is possible that the release date for Genshin Impact 1.3 may be February 3rd.
This is because version 1.1 came out on November 11th with version 1.2 on December 23rd, and both of those days were Wednesdays.
In addition, miHoYo’s roadmap plans – for the first three updates at least – are to update the game every six weeks, and February 3rd is six weeks from December 23rd. However, it may be seven weeks as version 1.2, so the date may instead be February 10th.
Again, the above is by no means official, as the only confirmation we have from miHoYo is that the third version is scheduled for sometime in February.
However, the Ganyu banner is scheduled to end on the 2nd of next month, so update 1.3 should not be too far gone.
