Genshin Impact has now released on PlayStation 4, mobile, and PC. It’s a game which has resulted in smashed PS4 consoles due to comparisons with Breath of the Wild, but – for everyone else – it’s a free-to-play action-RPG that looks appealing. Unfortunately, over on the PC side of things, lots of people are asking: why is the download speed so slow?

To hype its launch, the game received a gorgeous animated story trailer that really introduces you to its world and rich variety of characters. And the cute anime characters are truly the best aspect of the game as you can play as any one of them with some even being free.

However, while there’s plenty of characters to enjoy playing as, a lot of people on PC haven’t been able to explore the game’s rich landscape as of yet. Below you’ll discover why the Genshin Impact download speed is so slow.

Why is the Genshin Impact download speed so slow?

No official reason has been given for why the Genshin Impact download speed is so slow.

However, it’s been suggested by mostly everyone in the community that the download speed for Genshin Impact is so slow because of how many people are trying to install it all at once.

This has resulted in some criticism with people suggesting that the game should have been released on Steam.

If you’re suffering from slow download speeds, some of the Genshin Impact community over on Reddit have suggested pausing the download.

This has worked for some, but lots of people are lambasting speeds as slow as 0.30mb/s.
