Genshin Impact 4.0 Update Launch Time and Countdown

The highly anticipated Genshin Impact 4.0 update is set to launch on August 16, 2023, at 11 am (UTC+8). This update will introduce the long-awaited region of Fontaine, fulfilling the desires of many Travelers.

In the past, Genshin Impact updates have been released concurrently worldwide, and it is expected to be the same for the 4.0 update. The countdown provided above is based on the projected release time and date and applies to all regions. It's important to note that maintenance will begin five hours before the countdown reaches zero, so players will be unable to access the game until the maintenance is completed. However, to compensate for the downtime, players will receive 300 Primogems.

Please be aware that the actual server maintenance time might exceed the estimated countdown time, as it only indicates the expected launch time and is not guaranteed.
