Genshin Impact: 3.5 Update Release Time, Maintenance Schedule & 3.6 Update (New Characters)

Posted: Feb 28, 2023

It won't be long before the next major update of Genshin Impact arrives. You must want to know more about what miHoYo has prepared for you this time.

Genshin Impact 3.5 Update

1. Release Time

In a new tweet from miHoYo, it is announced to you that Genshin Impact version 3.5 has started preloading. You can download the update now so you can update immediately after the maintenance period ends. At 06:00 am on March 1st, maintenance will start, and the time will be about 5 hours. However, maintenance is usually completed well before the announced time, so you will be able to return to Genshin Impact a little earlier than the announced time.

2. Awards

During game maintenance, you can get 60 primogens per hour, so in the end you can get at least 300 primogens. If the maintenance takes longer than expected, then you get more primogens. These rewards will be a great start for you when it comes to getting these banners. Note: You must be at least adventure level 5 in order to redeem rewards.

3. Highlights

While there aren't any new areas added in this update, there's still a lot to look forward to and get excited about in the update. For example, new characters Dehya and Mika will be introduced this time, and you must be looking forward to their appearance. If you really like these two characters, then you can get Genshin Impact Accounts here, and experience their charms. Additionally, this update marks the return of the iconic Windblume Festival, which is held in Mondstadt. However, the main highlight of this update is the addition of new Archon quest. This quest features the return of Dainsleif, along with some new powerful enemy types.

Currently, the pre-installation of the Genshin Impact 3.5 update is live and you can start downloading it. The update will start on March 1st.

Genshin Impact 3.6 Update

The distance between Genshin Impact and the end of Sumeru's spotlight is getting shorter. Previously, HoYoverse introduced you to the latest batch of Archon Quests and some Dendro elements related to the new nation. Currently, for those that haven't been resolved, it appears to be being resolved and has the potential to connect you back to previously posted areas. There may also be a new playable character on the roster, Alhaitham's fashionable roommate Kaveh. So, that's all we know about Genshin Impact version 3.6. Next, I'll tell you some other important information about Genshin Impact version 3.6.

Genshin Impact Version 3.6

1. Release Date

According to the forecast, the release time of Genshin Impact 3.6 may be April 12, 2023. By convention, if it's the same time as previous updates, it will release before at around 9 p.m. Eastern. For this time, we based this estimate on the release date of Genshin Impact 3.5 and counted six weeks from then.

Please note that HoYoverse has not yet confirmed the release date of Genshin Impact 3.6. However, it hasn't changed its 6-week schedule either.

2. Character Banners

In Genshin Impact 3.6, Kaveh and Baizhu will be new characters soon. For this matter, HoYoverse has confirmed. If you'd like to see their character previews, you can check them out on HoYoverse's social media pages, like Facebook and Twitter.

As for Baizhu from Liyue's Babu Pharmacy, don't know if you still remember it? Babu Pharmacy is one place you have visited during your adventure in Liyue. In the Traveler's journey, the famous architect Kaveh also appeared. He was the one who built the Palace of Alcazarzaray in Sumeru, and also argued with his roommate, Alhaitham. Currently, Kaveh and Baizhu have not been released as playable characters despite having appeared in Genshin Impact's story quests.

According to Baidu leaker, Kaveh's kit mirrors Razor's, and he will be a Dendro Claymore DPS. Meanwhile, Baizhu is a Dendro 5-star and has HP-scaling support powers.

3. A New Area

HoYoverse has yet to confirm a new area in Genshin Impact 3.6. Still, there are plenty of leakers wondering if something new could be added to it.

There are some leaks mentioning such an area, which is where northern Sumeru and western Liyue are connected. Leaker Yukizero has told you about an area called "Chenyu Vale" that will not be connected to Sumeru, but will be connected to Liyue. Another leaker mentions an area called "Penumbra," which may connect to an unnamed area released in 3.6. Please note: the so-called leaks are all related to additional areas, but there is not necessarily a correlation between them.

4. A New Boss

As a long-time Genshin Impact leaker, Blank leaked this information to you. In Genshin Impact 3.6, a new Dendro dragon weekly boss is on your field of vision as part of a new Archon Quest. Apparently, the dragon also spawns other enemies, such as the Oceanid weekly boss.

Another Genshin Impact leaker named Babey says new enemies like Hydro Hilichurls and Anemo will come to Genshin Impact 3.6. However, it's unclear whether these enemies appear in areas like Spiral Abyss or in the wild.

5. A New Artifact Set

Prior to the Genshin Impact 3.6 update, two artifact sets had been leaked via Reddit. Via Reddit, a leaker from China says that one of the artifact sets is ideal for Childe as a Hydro DPS, while the other is an ideal set for Dehya's HP-dependent kit. However, the person who reposted this message found that the leaker did not cover up his leaking record, so these messages are very suspicious.
