Mihoyo has quelled player anger over the recent Genshin Impact Anniversary rewards by giving players additional free items from a premium bundle along with an announcement for an in-game concert.

Genshin Impact players have been enjoying new content leading up to the launch of its anniversary including the debut of the new hero Sangonomiya Kokomi. A fair amount of content was revealed for Version 2.1 and it seems to have been a success, bringing in $151 million for the Chinese developer in just a few short days.

The game also happened to have celebrated its 1-year anniversary yesterday. Unfortunately, quite a few players were upset with what was perceived by many to be a rather lackluster set of rewards for loyal players, ultimately resulting in a review bomb on the Google Play Store. Mihoyo has since acknowledged these complaints by giving away a bundle of premium items to all players in the game.

Genshin Impact Anniversary Celebrated with Extra Premium Gifts

As reported on Dualshockers, Mihoyo has sent players a special Genshin Impact Anniversary bundle in addition to the items that were already given away. A message that has been sent to all players was shared on Reddit.


Dear Travelers,
We sincerely thank you for your continuous support and love for Genshin Impact, and we would like to offer this thank-you gift to express our gratitude. In addition, we have specially prepared the Genshin Impact online concert on October 3,  and we look forward to you joining us. May Teyvat bring you more joy and cherished memories.

In addition to the items, an "online concert" will be taking place this coming Sunday, October 3, at 8:00 AM Eastern. You can watch this concert on the official Genshin Impact Twitch channel.

Players can get this free Genshin Impact Anniversary content in-game right now; that aside, you can look forward to a new character and some other cool stuff arriving with Version 2.2 next month. You can play Genshin Impact for free on PC, PlayStation, and mobile via its official website.
