What is the Genshin Impact 3.8 release date?

We believe that the Genshin Impact 3.8 release date is July 5, six weeks after the start of version 3.7.

Before that, Genshin Impact will go into maintenance for roughly five hours starting July 4 at 15:00 PST / 18:00 EST / 23:00 BST, or July 5 at 6:00 UTC+8. After maintenance concludes, you will receive a minimum of 300 primogems in your in-game mailboxas compensation for the game’s downtime.

Who will feature on the Genshin Impact 3.8 banner?

During the 3.8 livestream, Hoyoverse announced that the first phase banners feature Genshin Impact’s Klee and Genshin Impact’s Eula, while the second phase features Genshin Impact’s Kokomi and Genshin Impact’s Wanderer.
