HoYoverse has released its previously announced next major Genshin Impact (Free) update on all platforms following pre-installation going live on Monday on iOS, Android, and PC. Genshin Impact 4.2 titled “Masquerade of the Guilty” brings 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. If you pre-installed, the update is just the client download from the App Store on iOS with a few hundred MB within.

HoYoverse has released the full patch notes for the Genshin Impact 4.2 update as well. Read them here. 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.
