Genshin Impact 2.0 livestream news
By normal standards, Mihoyo is expected to share its plans for Genshin Impact 1.7, which is expected to launch later this month.
But recent reports and rumors suggest that bigger plans are in the works that will give fans much more information than expected.
This could even extend to Mihoyo dump plans for a 1.7 patch and go straight to Genshin Impact 2.0.
And while this may seem like a big leap, gamers on PS4, mobile and PC should be aware that it doesn’t mean they’re missing out.
What it does mean is that Mihoyo is reportedly planning one of the biggest updates they’ve ever launched.
This means there will be plenty of talk about the next Banner and characters, and maybe even some news for Switch gamers.
Mihoyo has promised Genshin Impact will hit the Nintendo Switch console in the future, and this week’s presentation would be the perfect time to share an update on how that’s going.
Mihoyo could also take the opportunity to release more free codes than usual as Genshin 2.0 is going to be such a big update.
This could be new links to the Twitch platform, which will host the main Genshin livestream this week.
As usual, gamers will have to take these reports with a grain of salt until we hear more from official sources.
And the good news is that fans won’t be waiting long to find out all about it in the next Genshin Impact livestream.
WHAT IS THE GENSHIN IMPACT 2.0 LIVESTREAM START TIME?
Developers MiHoYo has revealed that the start time of the Genshin Impact 2.0 livestream – or whatever they call it – is set for July 9 at 1:00 PM BST on Twitch.
Mihoyo’s post added: “Dear travelers, the Genshin Impact Preview will premiere on the official Twitch channel on July 9 at 8:00 AM (UTC-4) – https://twitch.tv/genshinimpactofficial.
“The official YouTube channel will release the recording on July 9 at noon (UTC-4) https://youtube.com/c/GenshinImpact.”
This means you also have the option to wait until later to watch the full event on YouTube.
The next major game expansion is expected around July 16 and already has a lot of leaked information being shared online.
While Kazuha became the first character to come out of Inazuma, they won’t be the last, and many more are planned.
Both Yoimiya and Ayaka appear to be joining him later this month, and the wait could be very short.
Ayaka has been leaked as a five-star character who will be a cryo sword user with a lot to offer to each roster.
It is expected to debut shortly after the next Genshin update launches, perhaps as early as July 21.
Recent reports also indicate that developers Mihoyo are thinking about making some map changes with Genshin 2.0, which extends to changing the arrangement of monsters in certain areas.
The full release date for Genshin Impact 2.0 will be announced on July 9, along with a new list of codes.
Some of the most recent codes released by Mihoyo include the following:
- GENSHINGIFT – 50 Primogems and Three Hero Wits.
- GENSHINGALAXY – 10,000 Mora and other items.
- GENSHINEPIC – 10,000 Mora and other items.
- GS6ACJ775KNV – 60 Primogems and 10,000 Mora.
