HoYoVerse revealed people who pay for the Genshin Impact Genesis Crystal will see the Initial Top-Up Bonus reset in 4.1. This will happen once the update is applied on September 27, 2023. This means that when people use real cash to purchase Genesis Crystal bundles for the first time, they are once again eligible to get bonus currency for doing so.

These sorts of resets aren’t uncommon in gacha games such as this. They also tend to appear on a yearly basis. In the case of Genshin Impact, the Initial Top-Up Bonus reset for Genesis Crystals always tends to happen on the .1 update. So in September 2021, there was a similar reset when 2.1 arrived. It also happened again for 3.1 in September 2022. Essentially, someone could consider it part of the anniversary endeavors.

However, HoYoVerse also reminded people that this type of Genshin Impact Initial Top-Up Bonus does not carry over if you didn’t buy Genesis Crystals between 3.1 and 4.1. So someone who wants the double bonus now should buy before 4.0.

We already know about a number of the other 4.1 elements that will arrive after the Genshin Impact update. For example, we know Neuvilette and Wriothesley will be the two new characters in this update. Both use catalysts. However, the former is a five-star and the latter only a four-star. Some of the new events also came up in the Special Program for this new version.

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices. The 4.1 update is set to arrive on September 27, 2023.
