‘Genshin Impact’ Version 4.0 Fontaine Update Is Now Available on iOS, Android, PS5, PS4, and PC

TouchArcade Rating:

HoYoverse just released the major Genshin Impact (Free) 4.0 Fontaine update “As Light Rain Falls Without Reason" on iOS, Android, PS5, PS4, and PC platforms following pre-installation going live earlier this week. If you did pre-install, the client update shouldn’t be too big depending on your platform. Genshin Impact 4.0 update brings in the long-awaited Fontaine region featuring underwater diving, the main story continuing, three new playable characters (Lyney, Lynette and Freminet), and a lot more to the game across its new content rollout. Alongside the update, HoYoverse also has compensation for maintenance that will grant 600 Primogems to adventure rank 5 and higher (by August 16) players. This compensation needs to be claimed before 4.0 ends. Full patch notes for this update are here if you’d like more details on what’s been added and changed.

If you are on console, this update is a full redownload more or less like prior updates. On iPad where I play, it was not much over the pre-load. If you’ve not gotten it yet, you can download Genshin Impact for free on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here. The PC version is available on the official website here and the Epic Games Store. If you play on iOS, with iOS 14.5 or iPadOS 14.5 and later, you can use PS5 and Xbox Series X|S controllers to play Genshin Impact. We featured Genshin Impact as our Game of the Week when it released and awarded it our 2020 Game of the Year. I also featured it as one of the best iOS games to play with a controller. What do you think of Genshin Impact 4.0 so far if you’ve been playing today?
