Genshin Impact will soon be celebrating its second-year anniversary! Coinciding with the launch of version 3.1, developer HoYoverse has revealed that players will be receiving rewards through a log-in event as well as the in-game mail to celebrate the game reaching its second year.
Genshin Impact's second-year anniversary rewards amount to 10 Intertwined Fates, 1,600 Primogems, four Fragile Resin, Mora, and Enhancement Materials.
A commemorative gadget and pet will also be given out to players. These are the Jumpty Dumpty Party Popper, a party popper based on Klee's Jumpty Dumpty, and Cloud Retainer’s Damasked Device, a pet that looks very similar to the Adeptus Cloud Retainer.
In addition, the Genesis Crystals top-up packs in the in-game store will also get their first purchase bonuses reset, meaning players will get double the amount of Genesis Crystals per pack upon purchase.
It should be noted that Genshin Impact's second-year anniversary rewards are similar to what players received during the game's first anniversary, save for the new gadget and pet.
Genshin Impact's first anniversary was, simply put, disappointing.
Many players felt there was a lack of excitement and fanfare to celebrate the game's first year, as HoYoverse chose to celebrate the anniversary through raffles, contests, web events, and the log-in event.
Fans were mostly disgruntled by the in-game rewards they received, which amounted to 10 Interwined Fates and some Enhancement Materials.
Many players, especially those coming from other gacha games, were disappointed with the small amount of freebies they received when compared to other gachas after a very successful first year for Genshin Impact.
Some fans even expressed their disappointment through a massive review-bomb of Genshin Impact in the app store, which dropped the game's rating from a stellar 4.8 to a low 2.8.
The review-bombing even made its way to other HoYoverse games like Tears of Themis and Honkai Impact 3rd. But it didn’t stop there.
