Genshin Impact 3.5 release time marks Dehya’s arrival

If you're wondering when the exact Genshin Impact 3.5 release time is, then look no further. Soon players will be able to revel in Windblume's Breath.

Genshin Impact 3.5 release time: Dehya and Nilou

Travellers, the time has come – the Genshin Impact 3.5 release time is finally upon us. Developer HoYoverse has now revealed the exact time the hit ARPG will go into maintenance, heralding the new update – Windblume’s Breath.

Taking to Twitter to share the news, HoYoverse says the Genshin Impact 3.5 release time will be 19:00 PT / 22:00 ET on February 28, 2023, and 03:00 GMT on March 1, 2023. Maintenance is scheduled to begin at 14:00 PT / 17:00 ET / 22:00 GMT on February 28, and will last an “estimated” five hours.

The latest update is set to introduce two brand new Genshin Impact characters on the Genshin Impact 3.5 banners – Dehya and Mika. While theorycrafters haven’t been particularly positive about the odds of Dehya taking up a decent spot on the Genshin Impact tier list, we can only hope Flame-Mane gets the love she deserves as Zhongli did post-release.

Steering away from the doom and gloom, Windblume’s Breath has all sorts of goodies in store. There’s a new Archon Quest featuring Dainsleif, a Story Quest focusing on Dehya, and a new Faruzan Hangout Event on the way. Additionally, two new enemies – Abyss Herald: Frost Fall and Black Serpent Knight: Rockbreaker Ax – will soon be encountered by players.
