The Genshin Impact Genius Invokation TCG is a new permanent game mode that will be added to the game in a future update. Here’s everything you need to know about the mode, including details on its characters, gameplay, and release date.

The Genshin Impact 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3 leaks continue to pour in as players delve into the game’s beta files. However, one of the biggest reveals was that of the Genshin Impact Genius Invokation TCG. This upcoming mode will enable Travelers to play a card game against AI opponents and other players. 

This is obviously incredibly exciting as fans have been calling for HoYoverse to add permanent end-game content to Genshin Impact since release. So, if you’re interested in the upcoming trading card game, then our Genshin Impact Genius Invokation TCG hub has everything you need to know.

Genshin Impact 3.3 will add Genius Invokation — a new permanent game mode.

HoYoverse has revealed that the Genshin Impact Genius Invokation TCG will make its debut in the 3.3 update, which means Travelers will need to wait until December 7, 2022. We’ll be sure to update this section if the developers announce further details on the upcoming mode. 

Genshin Impact Genius Invokation TCG gameplay

UBatacha has revealed a number of Genshin Impact TCG gameplay details, giving Travelers an idea of how the card game will function. According to the leaker, the game starts with both sides drawing five cards. Players then switch out cards in their hand and choose one character to be their Active Character.

For each round, both sides get eight elemental dice to roll. These dice reflect the current elements available in the game, while an additional “Omni” element can be used to take on the role of any of the seven elements.

The leaker also notes how elemental reactions are also present. For example, when characters take any elemental damage, that element will be applied to them. Travelers can then follow up with additional elemental damage dealt to the same character to trigger a reaction.

Once an active character is fully charged, they can unleash their powerful Elemental Burst ability — an area that will likely have game-changing effects. Interestingly, characters can also have Artifact sets, weapons, and other gear equipped to them to aid in their overall combat effectiveness.  

Essentially, gameplay involves Travelers acquiring cards and battling their foes using various elemental abilities until they eventually claim a victory over their opponent. We’ll likely see more official Genshin Impact TCG gameplay in the months to come, so be sure to check back here regularly for further information.
