Version 3.3 marks the beginning of a new era for Scaramouche mains. Those devoted people will finally be allowed to play their favorite character after two years of waiting. Wanderer is coming to the game, and he’s set to be much more than simply a deluxe version of Shikanoin Heizou.
His release is big enough to the point that developers decided to make everything about that man. He’s getting a dedicated support character in his own banner with Faruzan. The new Archon Quest focuses on his new path. There’s a new Artifact Domain that drops his BiS set. He’s literally the face of the update! And was the face for the previous one too! C’mon, he’s clearly one of Hoyoverse’s favorite kids at this point.
There’s also the introduction of the new permanent game mode Genius Invokation TCG. Even if you don’t like card games, go check it out. You might discover a new hobby. Or at the very least will get some more Primogems from progressing in the game. Well, when does Genshin Impact Version 3.3 release?

Genshin Impact 3.3 Release Date
According to the Special Program Livestream, Version 3.3 will be arriving on December 7 in Asia (UTC +8). The servers will be closed at 06:00, and the maintenance should take up to five hours to complete.
Due to time differences, it’s possible that 3.3 arrives earlier than expected in your country. For those living in North America for example (UTC -5), maintenance starts on December 6, 17:00, so plan ahead. If you’re still in doubt, do the time conversion to known when it’s arriving for you.
Even though there’s a new mode being added, maintenance shouldn’t take more than usual and the game should be back way before those 5 hours are completed, so don’t fret and take this time to play something else.
There are still a few days left for the Yae Miko/Childe rerun banners, which have been pretty damn good since Dendro’s introduction. If you’re not interested in them, there’s a chance for saving for Wanderer, so take it.
