As expected, the release date for the Genshin Impact 3.3 update came up during the November 25, 2022 Special Program presentation. As usual, it will appear the day after the current banners end. That means on December 7, 2022, people can take part in new quest lines, summon both new and returning characters, and take part in the trading card game for the first time.
To go along with the 3.3 Genshin Impact update release date, there’s a new trailer highlighting the additional content. It shows the debut of a returning character as a playable ally, as well as hints at various story elements coming up in this next patch. Once again, adventures are continuing in Sumeru. Dottore, from the Fatui, remains an ominous figure. However, the focus is primarily on Scaramouche. (The other new character Faruzan does also appear, though.) Inversion of Genesis, the new Archon Quest, will bring everyone up speed about Irminsul and Scaramouche as the Traveler goes with him on behalf of Nahida.
As a reminder, there are two banners set to end the day before the update arrives. At the moment, rerun banners are live for Childe (Tartaglia) and Yae Miko. Those will end on December 6, 2022. Their banners also marked the debut of a new four-star unit. The Cryo sword-user Layla appeared on their banners for the first time. She’s a new Sumeru character and will join the general character pool following her appearance as a focus unit this time around.
Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the release date for update 3.3 is December 7, 2022.
