Genshin Impact Version 1.3 Stream


miHoYo announced the Bilibili Chinese stream for Genshin Impact Version 1.3 is happening on Friday, January 22. Count on us to translate everything live.

miHoYo announced January 22, 2021 as the reveal date for the Version 1.3 live stream of  Genshin Impact (PC, PS4, PS5, Mobile, Switch soon). The Chinese version of the Genshin Impact Version 1.3 stream will be live on the official miHoYo Bilibili page on January 22 at 7 AM, ET (Click here for a time zone conversion).

As usual, the Genshin Impact official Japanese Twitter will publish live the Chinese stream’s details. DualShockers will be translating everything simultaneously. With an article updated every few minutes as the stream goes on. It’ll be very similar to our coverage of the Version 1.1 stream and the Version 1.2 stream.

An official Genshin Impact Version 1.3 English stream should be happening a few hours after the Chinese one. However, the English stream was not announced yet as we’re publishing this story.

Version 1.3 will add at least two new characters. The stream will reveal these two characters. Alongside several new events and quests. The stream will feature an overview on all of the new content coming with Ver 1.3. This will be the first big update following the addition of Dragonspine.

Genshin Impact Version 1.3 Update – What we already know

First, when miHoYo revealed the update schedule for Genshin Impact, it stated Version 1.3 will include the Lantern Rite Festival in Liyue. As such, Version 1.3 should introduce the Xiao banner soon after its launch in mid February. After the Version 1.3 Closed Beta Test, two characters have leaked. This is information under NDA, so we won’t specify names here, but most of you already know. Speaking of which, the leaker must have met an horrible fate after being caught by the miHoYo ninjas. Plus, keep in mind there is technically no guarantee miHoYo will reveal the same characters as in the Version 1.3 Closed Beta Test. While this is a slightly different situation, Xiao and Ayaka were characters present in the very first Closed Beta before release. And yet they still aren’t playable in the final game.

As a reminder, Xiao already appeared in the Liyue main story quest of Genshin Impact. Voiced by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Kirito in Sword Art Online), Xiao is one of the most anticipated Genshin characters. It’s likely the Xiao gacha banner will be one of the most successful ones yet for miHoYo.

Secondly, the Version 1.3 update of Genshin Impact will buff Geo characters such as Zhongli,with several improvements. These changes are not final yet. miHoYo might publish the final adjustments on the live stream.

Thirdly, miHoYo is also rumored to launch a paid, daily Original Resin refill pass. We might hear about it on the Genshin Impact Version 1.3 stream.

Fourthly, miHoYo published a few details regarding Version 1.3 earlier this week. Most notably how the iOS version of Genshin Impact will get controller support with the update.

Lastly, several new characters have appeared in past events. Such as Rosaria the nun. And some of the Fatui Harbingers, such as Scaramouche. We might see them again in Version 1.3. We still don’t know when then Inazuma region will be added either.
