During the Genshin Impact Special Program for Version 3.5, HoYoVerse showed off when players can expect the new update. The name of the patch is Windblume’s Breath, which is the name of the flagship event. The release date for version 3.5 of Genshin Impact is March 1, 2023.
Windblume’s Breath will be the new Mondstadt-centric event, which also stars Sumeru characters Collei, Cyno, and Tighnari. Soon after arriving in Mondstadt, Collei discovers a prophecy and, in the process of helping her figure it out, the Traveler learns about her past. As a reminder, Collei originally appeared in the webtoon where you can see her adventures prior to the game. There will also be a new Hangout Event featuring Faruzan. Also, Caribert will be the new Archon Quest. Dainsleif will be there, which means the story will focus on the Khaenri’ah story line.
While the stream did not state a specific date for the next update, the Battle Pass and banners for 3.4 will end on February 28, 2023. That means that the next version should launch the next day on March 1, 2023. The current version, 3.4, started on January 18, 2023. Its flagship event is “The Exquisite Night Chimes,” which is 2023’s Lantern Rite Festival. This update is also the debut of the playable versions of Alhaitham and Yaoyao.
Genshin Impact is available on PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. The release date for the Genshin Impact version 3.5 update is March 1, 2023.
