It will be possible to pre-download Genshin Impact update 1.2, but beware, this feature will only be available on PC at first! downloading. Don’t worry: a pre-download feature is coming to allow you to pre-download data from this version 1.2. This feature will be available on PC from December 21 but beware: it is not available for other media. Version 1.2 will serve as a first test for the implementation of this function for future updates. The option will also be implemented later on PS4 and mobile.
During the pre-download, it will be possible to play normally but be careful because the data consumption will be more important.
Once the pre-download is complete, all you have to do is update the game once version 1.2 is available.
In the event that you started the pre-download but haven’t finished it, you’ll pick up right where you left off when you released 1.2.
