How to preload Genshin 2.4

personal computer

On the PC, you need to launch the game launcher and click the “Game Pre-Install” option on the screen.

After this, the game update should install automatically. Travelers can still play while pre-installing game resources.

Pre-installation will take up a certain amount of your network bandwidth, so it’s best to make sure you have a good network connection.

Pre-installation instructions for PC


Mobile players must log into their account and go to the “Paimon Menu”. Go to settings, then click “Pre-install resource pack”.

If this doesn’t work, you can see the package in the main menu after you have logged in. Just click on it to install everything.

Travelers on mobile devices cannot play games while they are downloading resources, so it is best to start the process when taking a break or during the night.

Play station

Unfortunately for Playstation travelers, there is still no option to preload the game.

We will update if that changes before launch day.
