What revenues for free-to-play Genshin Impact ?

How can a free-to-play game generate so much revenue when, as the name suggests, you don't have to spend a cent to play the game? The answer can be found in one word: microtransaction. A term well known to mobile gaming experts, it is the joy of video game companies but the bane of our credit cards. Genshin Impact The game uses a gacha system, which is a bit like a lottery. There is therefore an important element of randomness in obtaining the best characters and equipment. You can't decide your luck in the draws, which are like wishes in the game... But by multiplying them, you mechanically increase the probabilities of obtaining valuable content.

This is why many players tempted by the lure of money buy Genesis Crystals to make as many wishes as possible. There are different packs that appeal to all player profiles, ranging from 2.97 dollars (60 crystals) to $29.99 (1,980 crystals). There are also temporary or special packs that give various benefits in exchange for real money.
