HoYoverse Deploys Genshin Impact 3.8.1 Patch Update, Resolves Technical Issue on PlayStation Platforms

Genshin Impact got an update for PlayStation users, marked as version 3.8.1. Although this update doesn’t bring any fresh content to the globally celebrated online action RPG, it effectively addresses a significant technical hiccup troubling a portion of the game’s community.

This specific issue was causing the screen to go black following the “WARNING: READ BEFORE PLAYING” notification on certain HDR-enabled PlayStation devices. This bug was barring users from launching Genshin Impact, interrupting the gaming experience. The arrival of the 3.8.1 update serves to rectify this technical anomaly.

Genshin Impact 3.8.1 Notes

Dear Travelers,

A version update for PS4™ and PS5™ was released at 2023/07/14 15:00 (UTC+8). This was to fix an issue where the screen would go black after “WARNING: READ BEFORE PLAYING” appeared, preventing users from launching the game on certain HDR-enabled PlayStation® devices. The post-update game version is 3.8.1.

While the major 3.8 patch was rolled out earlier this month, featuring many new content and gameplay-related modifications, the 3.8.1 update might seem comparatively minor. However, its role is critical in ensuring that all PlayStation users can continue to enjoy a smooth and uninterrupted Genshin Impact experience.
