Genshin Impact Is Giving Away a Bunch of Free Primogems

The popular free-to-play video game Genshin Impact announced today that it will issue a grand total of 800 Primogems, one of the game's most important digital currencies, to players over the next several days. This is in celebration of the miHoYo-developed title winning several different awards over the past couple of days, and the best news of all is that the distribution seemingly doesn't start until tomorrow, so you still have time to register for the video game if you have not already.

Primogems, if you are not familiar, are essentially the currency used to make Wishes (character and weapon pulls) in the game's various gacha banners. They have other uses, but making a Wish is inarguably the primary one. Broadly speaking, one Wish equates to 160 Primogems with a full 10-pull running 1,600 Primogems. Thankfully, the game doles them out fairly regularly for just about everything from quests to opening chests.

Genshin Impact is currently available, free to play, for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, and mobile devices. It is also set to release for the Nintendo Switch. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the popular free-to-play title right here.
