Following its full reveal on Friday, the next major Genshin Impact (Free) update can now be pre-installed on mobile and PC platforms. Genshin Impact 4.2 titled “Masquerade of the Guilty” is due November 8th worldwide (or November 7th depending on your timezone) for iOS, Android, PS5, PS4, and PC platforms. This update will bring in the climax of Fontaine’s main storyline, new characters (Furina, the Hydro Archon, and Charlotte, the ace reporter), two new regions with a high tower (the foggy forest and roiling lake) and also bring in more World Quests for players alongside seasonal events. This update will also see a photography event take place in Fontaine. If you’re planning to pre-download the Genshin Impact 4.2 update, it is about 2.7GB on iPhone and iPad.
