Update countdown to keep track of the new patch release
Here is a countdown Genshin Impact fans can go back and track the release of the 3.5 update. It should be noted that this countdown should not be confused with update maintenance. The above countdown is set to reach zero at 11:00 AM (UTC+8) on March 1, 2023.
Fans on all servers can use this global countdown to see how much time is left until Patch Update 3.5 is released. As long as the countdown says “Time left until v3.5 update”, it indicates that there is still time before a patch is released. Likewise, when the countdown states, “New patch update is now available,” it means that the new update has been released and is ready for download.
With update 3.5 nearing its official release date, the admins have also released a pre-install feature. This is a frequent feature that developers enable before version updates. This allows fans to pre-download the majority of the content, allowing for a smoother user experience when the update is finally released.
