Time really flies by, doesn’t it? It almost seems like yesterday that the stacked Genshin Impact 3.4 banners came into the action RPG, but their time is almost over again. Genshin Impact 3.5 stands ready to go and HoYoverse has announced another special program livestream showing off what the next version will look like.

The stream will inform us on which Genshin Impact characters will be available to pull from the banners during the version’s duration, how the story will be continued, and what kind of events we’ll get to participate in. On top of that, we get to earn free primogems by entering the promo codes distributed during the show.

Here’s where and when you can catch the Genshin Impact 3.5 livestream.

Genshin Impact 3.5 livestream: what to expect

The show is being hosted by Zach Aguilar, voice actor for Aether, who will be joined by Amber May, who voices Dehya, and Khoi Dao, who plays Albedo. We already know that Dehya and Mika will join the roster of playable characters in update 3.5, and Dao’s appearance likely confirms rumors about Albedo getting a rerun.

Since the stream announcement also revealed that update 3.5 will be called Windbume’s Breath, a focus on Mondstadt, where Albedo and Mika are based, is likely and should include some events in the game's starting region.

Rumors also indicate that the mysterious Dainsleif (played by Yuri Lowenthal) will return in version 3.5, continuing the main story surrounding the Abyss Order, Khaenri'ah, and our sibling. Will we finally get some answers, or does Dainsleif leave us with more questions than we had before once again?
