Genshin Impact is a free-to-play game that combines Breath of the Wild-style exploration with gacha-game mechanics. Players explore, go on quests, and experience a hefty amount of story content without paying a dime. To collect all of Genshin Impact\’s playable characters, however, players have to engage in the game\’s random draw mechanic. Players can earn pulls (known as \”wishes\” from in-game activities or spend real-world money to buy wishes.
Players who don\’t have time to log on to Genshin Impact on their birthday don\’t need to worry about missing out on their reward. Since the birthday reward comes through in-game mail, players have up to one year from their birthday to open the email and claim the gift inside. It\’s also fun to note that Genshin Impact characters also have assigned birthdays that earn players rewards. If a player owns a character and their birthday happens, players will receive mail from that character with a special food item and material for leveling up the character\’s talent. Unlike player birthday rewards, a character\’s birthday reward must be claimed within 30 days of the character\’s birthday.
Birthdays are first set when a player creates their account on a server, so new players who want this Genshin Impact reward right away can choose a close date to get the reward immediately. Once a birthday is set, however, it cannot be changed. Players will have to weigh how much they want that extra resin against the joy of a little extra something on their real birthday.
