Genshin Impact is arguably one of the biggest games on the market and continues to grow with each update. Its availability on multiple platforms has allowed the developers to make millions on a daily basis. Despite the success, many users have problems with every update, and it can be a bit annoying. The latest 1.3.2 update is no different, and updating to it through the launcher simply doesn’t work for multiple fans. If you are struggling with that, here is how you can manually update Genshin Impact to version 1.3.2.

We hope that future updates are a bit more streamlined than the current ones, and players don’t run into any issues again. There are other factors as well, especially related to ISPs blocking access to the game, but most problems are with the launcher itself.

Manually update Genshin Impact version 1.3.2

One of the best things about the manual updates is you can use your third-party download manager. This will ensure that you get the best speeds, as the launcher doesn’t always work right. For this guide to work, you need to be on 1.3.0. Follow the steps below to update your game to 1.3.2.

  • First, open the Genshin Impact launcher, and make sure it is in the latest version (it will give you a prompt to update if it isn’t)
  • Click on the Update button, and then pause it
  • Now, quit the launcher completely, and make sure it is closed in the task manager, and from the taskbar as well. Here is the Genshin Impact icon in the taskbar

  • Now, head over to the Genshin Impact Game folder. This folder is in the install location. The default location is the following, but it can vary based on where you installed it.
C:\Program Files\Genshin Impact\Genshin Impact Game\
  • Here, you want to delete the 1.3.0_1.3.2_diff_ryqTKPYO.zip_tmp file. This is the partial download
  • Head over to the following link to download the patch for 1.3.2 (159.21 MB)
  • Now, copy this zip file to the Genshin Impact Game folder, which is in the following location
C:\Program Files\Genshin Impact\Genshin Impact Game\
  • Run the launcher again, and click Update. This will unzip the file, and install it

That is all you need to do, to be on the latest version of the game. For most users, the launcher should be more than enough to take care of this process, however, the manual update can actually save time, especially if the launcher isn’t giving full download speeds.
