Genshin Impact continues to enjoy worldwide popularity due to its regular updates and ever-expanding roster of playable characters. As we transition out of the 4.1 era, Hoyoverse, the game developer, has announced the forthcoming Genshin Impact 4.2 livestream. The wait isn’t much longer and several new characters have already been revealed.

The 4.1 update of Hoyoverse’s Genshin Impact brought a lot of enjoyment. New characters introduced in the 4.1 patch notes included the 5-star Chief Justice of Fontaine, Neuvillette, as well as the reintroduction of Hu Tao, for whom we’ve shared the best builds. The 4.1 update also brought new weapons, so make sure to acquire them before the arrival of the next update in November.

Genshin Impact 4.2 livestream initiation date

The Genshin Impact 4.2 livestream will commence on November 3rd as declared on the game’s official Twitter account. An initial schedule had it for October 27th, but it has since been moved to early November. You can tune into the exclusive program preview live on Twitch, and the recorded video will be uploaded to YouTube shortly afterwards.

The livestream typically lasts around an hour, offering updates on new and returning characters, as well as detailing upcoming events. Make sure to catch the event for updates and to redeem new promo codes.

Genshin Impact 4.2 livestream start time

The Genshin Impact 4.2 livestream begins at 5:10 AM PT/ 8:10 AM ET/ 12:10 PM GMT on November 3rd, as confirmed by the game’s Twitter. The release date for update 4.2 was initially set for November 8th, however there is no new information regarding whether it has also been postponed.

Confirmed for the Genshin Impact 4.2 update is a new banner character named Furina, recognised as the Endless Solo of Solitude under the Hyrdo classification. Another newly confirmed banner character includes Charlotte, a Cryo dubbed as the Lens of Verity.

Hoyoverse has confirmed these as the new banner characters for the update. Looking at potential reruns, SaveYourPrimos speculates we might see a reappearance from characters Baizhu, Ayato and Cyno. However, these reruns are purely speculative at this point, unlike the assured introductions of Furina and Charlotte.
