In more than ten days, Genshin Impact 3.4 will be released. Players are also very excited about this update. Although the developer of the game, HoYoverse, has not released a specific announcement about the new patch so far, but according to the previous release pattern, we guess that version 3.4 is expected to be launched on January 18.
According to the past release characteristics of Genshin Impact, we found that HoYoverse will launch a Special Program livestream on YouTube and Twitch every time before updating the Genshin Impact patch. During the live broadcast, HoYoverse developers often announce new events, content and character banners in the new patch. Therefore, these Livestreams are also very important for players as they can plan savings early based on the character banners.
Expected Date And Time Of Genshin Impact 3.4 Livestream
10 to 12 days before each update, Genshin Impact will carry out a Special Program. As I mentioned before, developers will introduce important information such as all new events and characters in the new version to players through live broadcast. If the expected release date of Genshin Impact 3.4 is January 18th, then the livestream should be around January 8th.
Since players may come from different countries, the version 3.4 Special Program livestream time will also vary from region to region. The following is the specific time I summarized the live broadcast is expected to start:
7 am PST
1 pm CEST
10 am EST
What You Can Expect In The Livestream
Since there are already some rumors about new characters, new regions, and events in the new version, I think the most awaited player should be a huge update. The purpose of the Special Program is actually to reveal most of the updated content of Genshin Impact 3.4 version one by one.
When it comes to the content that players are most looking forward to, I think it must be the new character banners. Just a few weeks ago, HoYoverse had officially announced on Twitter that Alhaitham and Yaoyao would be new playable units. Therefore, I expect them to appear in the first phase banners of the patch.
Since Xiao always comes back during the Lantern Rite festival, players may see him replay again. During the live show, HoYoverse will also reveal a new weapon, specifically Alhaitham's new signature limited five-star sword. In addition, they will also announce new characters during the live broadcast. At the same time, they will also show off the gameplay of the new characters. So, fans can look forward to a long Alhaitham and Yaoyao kit demo.
If the above information is correct, it is very likely that HoYoverse will announce Hu Tao and Yelan rerun banners in the second phase of the version 3.4 update.
Since the release of the first desert region, Sumeru has become the largest region available for players to explore in Teyvat. But in this update, Sumeru seems to continue to expand its territory. It is expected that a new Sumeru desert region will appear in version 3.4. There will be new bosses and enemies in this new region. So, I guess during the stream, HoYoverse should also reveal something about this new region.
As the Genshin Mains - Your Guide to Teyvat post shows, Genshin Impact will most likely add some new features in the latest release. Specifically, some teleport waypoints may have a special mark next to the icon to distinguish between underground and surface-level waypoints.
Based on some revelations online, we also speculate that Ayaka and Lisa from Genshin Impact may get new character skins in version 3.4. If this is true, the HoYoverse may have teased their new costumes during the stream.
At the end of the stream, HoYoverse always gives players three redemption codes worth 300 Primogems, some Mora, Hero's Wit, and Enchantment Ores. It is recommended that players redeem on the Genshin Impact official website or in-game options as soon as possible, otherwise these redemption codes will expire on the same day.
