Despite being on multiple gaming platforms like the PC, PS4 and PS5, Genshin Impact is well-known for its mobile platform, where players can fight enemies and level up their characters on the go. This year at The Game Awards, Genshin Impact was nominated for two awards, “Best Mobile Game” and “Best Ongoing,” where it was able to secure the “Best Mobile Game” award with the help of its fans. The game was up against other popular mobile game contenders, such as Fantasian, League of Legends: Wild Rift, Marvel Future Revolution, and Pokémon Unite.

In honor of winning the “Best Mobile Game” award, miHoYo stated on Genshin Impact’s official Twitter that they would be giving out a total of 1,600 Primogems, the in-game currency, as a reward to its players. Players can use these free Primogems for buying Wishes to use on character and weapon banners, buying Battle Pass levels, or restoring Original Resin to use in various domains. It was also stated on Twitter that players will be able to receive the free Primogems in their in-game mail as long as they log into the game each day from Dec. 11 to Dec. 14, where 400 Primogems will be given out per day until the end date.

During the Game Awards, miHoYo also released a new trailer that showed some familiar faces, along with some new and upcoming characters. The trailer featured previous five-star characters Yoimiya and Sangonomiya Kokomi fighting a new boss together. The trailer also showed the much anticipated five-star character Arataki Itto and four-star character Gorou, who will both be appearing on the next character banner for the game’s 2.4 update. The trailer also surprised many viewers towards the end, where it faded into a black screen before it teased a new character named Yun Jin, a polearm user and famous opera singer from Liyue. Her concept art was originally revealed on the official Genshin Impact Twitter account back in November, but her release date is still speculated.
Overall, today was a good day for Genshin Impact fans.
