Genshin Impact Players Frustrated With 1st Anniversary Event Rewards

A lot of Genshin Impact gamers are dissatisfied with the first-anniversary prizes. Since its release in 2020, Genshin Impact has been a cultural phenomenon, swiftly becoming one of the most popular free-to-play games on the market. Because of its popularity, many people expected the game’s anniversary awards to be plentiful. However, it appears that miHoYo’s products have enraged supporters.

Genshin Impact, an open-world RPG, is gearing up for the release of version 2.1, which will bring a slew of new features to the game. The 2.0 upgrade began in July, bringing three new regions as part of the new Inazuma region, as well as new storylines, missions, and characters. Watatsumi Island and Seirai Island will be added to Genshin Impact version 2.1, as well as new boss opponents. Once the new update is released, fans will be able to participate in fishing in Genshin Impact.


While the future of Genshin Impact is bright, the anniversary incentives have stirred controversy on Reddit. Genshin Impact’s anniversary prizes will consist of “up to 10 Intertwined Fate, coupled with ample resources by participating in the daily login event,” according to an image from the PlayStation Blog provided by Genshin user xxKoRxx. Players’ Double Crystal top-up bonuses will likewise be reset.

Despite the game’s anniversary being a watershed moment in its history, the Reddit thread has been inundated with angry Genshin players dissatisfied with what many believe to be meager offers. The post had almost 9000 upvotes at the time of writing, with other gamers expressing their disappointment with the lackluster prizes.

Intertwined Fate is a type of in-game money that players may use to purchase weapons and characters from banners. Many who use Intertwined Fates will have the chance to obtain 5-star characters or weapons, but the freebies aren’t the anniversary content that players had hoped for.


According to gamers replying to the Reddit thread, the first-anniversary award isn’t as remarkable as past Genshin Impact events like the Lantern Rite, which included rare goods like the Crown of Insight.

While some fans may be disappointed with the anniversary prizes, gamers can expect more benefits and bonuses when Genshin Impact version 2.1 is released next month. The update is set to launch on September 1st, and fresh information has revealed that players will be able to obtain 24 free pulls as part of the Floating World Under the Moonlight event, which will award 10 Intertwined Fate and 2270 Primogems. From the same day, players on PlayStation 4 and 5 will be able to add Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy to the game, with Aloy arriving for free in Genshin Impact.
