There will be a slight difference between enabling the pre-installation function on the PC and mobile versions of Genshin Impact. Pre-installation for the PC version of the game will simply require users to activate the feature through the PC launcher by clicking on the “Game Pre-Installation” button.

Android and iOS users can enable the pre-installation feature within the Genshin Impact app. To do this, they will need to go to the Settings via the Paimon menu, choose “Other,” and then select “Pre-Installation Resource Package.” However, a second method is available. This can be done through the login screen of the mobile version of the game. There will be a “Pre-Install Resource Package” button on the lower left-hand side of the login screen.

Players will need to make sure to update their game on February 14, 2022 in order to see the feature. Once users have updated their game, they can then access the pre-installation function.

Genshin Impact is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Android and iOS devices. A Nintendo Switch version is in development. The 2.5 update will arrive on February 16, 2022.
