Genshin Impact's Second Anniversary Rewards Go Beyond The Free Wishes
Have we forgotten about the upcoming anime?
I will be the first to admit that Genshin Impact's Anniversary rewards for 2021 were a flop to say the least. People were adamantly and vocally upset about the abysmal rewards considering they added up to only about 20 free wishes with a few bonus items and events scheduled for the update that followed.
It was because of this reason that not many people were expecting much from Genshin Impact's 2nd-year anniversary rewards, and with the rewards ‘matching’ that of the year before, 20 free wishes and some bonus items, many people were simply 'happy enough.' With expectations already low, it was a bit of a moot point.
However, I for one think that rewards go beyond the scope of free wishes. To start, there is a new pet that will be gifted in-game based on Cloud Retainer, the Adeptus crane that is featured in many Liyue story quests. Then, Genshin announced a new TCG (Trading Card Game) and its new upcoming anime with ufotable. An entire anime dedicated to a series, one that is still relatively new, is huge and in my opinion, is a great anniversary reward.
Personally, I am happy with the rewards, I think Genshin has been working hard outside of just free wishes to create a game that can continue to entertain players for years to come–which is no easy feat. They shower their game with orchestra events, updates, Twitter giveaways, and now a brand new anime–I think Genshin is doing great, but the fan base will sadly always want more. Until Genshin has a formidable opponent in the gacha field, the rewards will continue to be the same year after year.
