Genshin Impact 4.7 release date, livestream, events, and characters

Everything you can expect from the upcoming 4.7 Genshin Impact update, including banners and events, and leaks on a surprise character.

What is the Genshin Impact 4.7 release date? Thanks to various leaks leading up to the next update, we’ve got quite a bit to go on, including which new characters you can expect and a brand new abyss.

The new characters coming to Genshin Impact have already been teased on the game’s official social media, so we know we can expect them in the 4.7 update. There have, however, been leaks surrounding the 4.7 Genshin Impact events, and it looks like it’s going to be a big update, including a potential prelude quest to a hugely anticpated fan favorite character.

Genshin Impact 4.7 release date

The Genshin Impact 4.7 release date is likely June 5, 2024, if the update follows the six-week release schedule. There will be the usual Genshin Impact maintenance times before the update goes live, but players should receive goodies for their patience.

The Genshin Impact 4.7 livestream date is May 24, 2024, and we’re almost always treated to a first-look at banners, events, story, and more about a week or two before the launch of the new update. You can watch the livestream on Twitch.TV at 13:00 GMT / 06:00 PT / 09:00 ET.

It looks like there’s a lot to unpack in the 4.7 update, too, so keep a look out on this guide for the latest from the livestream and fresh Genshin Impact codes.

Genshin Impact 4.7 update

Genshin Impact 4.7 characters


This new Genshin Impact character is a five-star Electro character. Clorinde wields a pistol, but as she is a Champion Duelist from Fontaine, she may have another weapon up her sleeve!


Four-star Electro characer, Sethos, wields a bow and hails from the deserts of Sumeru. We saw him in the 4.6 livestream and he appeared in Cyno’s story quest, but it looks like he’ll be joining one, or both, of these upcoming Genshin Impact banners.


Sigewinne is a five-star Hydro character, and she is the head nurse from the Fortress of Meropide. We know she wields a pistol, this could suggest that she may be a DPS/Healer hybrid.

Genshin Impact Dansleif prelude quest

Genshin Impact 4.7 events


One of the biggest leaks to come out of the lead-up to the 4.7 update, is that the hugely anticipated character, Dansleif, could finally be arriving as a playable character in a future update. Players have been waiting years to know more about Dainsleif, and it looks like 4.7 may include his prelude quest.

Imaginarium Theater

Judging by the leaks from Genshin_Intel on X, it looks like a new abyss is coming to Genshin Impact. You’ll be able to select characters to take on this eight-stage challenge, which can be accessed in the prep room using Tomes of Reveries. There are three boss stages, with the first stage being level 80, with the level increasing throughout to the final level 90 stage.

Other Genshin Impact 4.7 events include:

  • Water cannon shooter
  • Mobs vs Mobs tower defense event
  • A “Super Mario style” minigame
  • Kill-with-mechanics event
  • TCG card for Weiothesley, Xinyan, Kaveh, Furina, Yunjin

That’s all we have for the Genshin Impact 4.7 release date, but we’ll be sure to update this anime game guide when we have a firm livestream date and details on the banners. In the meantime, here our Genshin Impact tier list of the best and worst characters.
