GENSHIN IMPACT fans have delved into the game’s code and discovered a Gwent-like trading card game, which could be added as a playable mini-game.
The data includes some dialogue which suggests that you will be able to challenge other characters to games of Genius Invokation.
Genshin Impact has just entered version 3.0.
Players of Genshin Impact may have already noticed that characters Kamisato Ayato and Arataki Itto have mentioned being fans of Genius Invokation in their dialogue.
The game will apparently be able to be played at the Cat’s Tail, one of Mondstadt’s taverns, where Diona works as the barkeeper.
If the leaks are true, an invitation board will be hung in the tavern and can be used to challenge other players.
It is also rumoured that you will be able to customise your deck and that NPCs will also want to play with you.
This style of in-game card game is similar to The Witcher 3’s Gwent.
Gwent became so popular that developer CD Projekt Red eventually released it as a standalone game.
What is Genshin Impact’s Genius Invokation?
Within the world of Teyvat, Genius Invokation is already well established, but we’ve never had the chance to see the game in motion yet.
Café Puspa in Sumeru has a few more references to the card game within it.
On the message board there, two separate messages mention Genius Invokation, with one announcing a players’ club looking for new members.
Sumeru is the newest region of Genshin Impact, and this card game was supposedly invented at the academy here.
It’s likely that if the game is to be introduced, it will be in this new region in one of the updates over the coming months.
When will Genius Invokation be playable in Genshin Impact?
We don’t know when Genius Invokation will be available as its introduction hasn’t been officially announced yet.
However, we can make an educated guess as to when we might see it be introduced.
The update 3.1 will bring with it three new characters, Cyno, Nilou and Candace.
While there is no guarantee it will come out with this update, it is very likely to be available sooner rather than later.
Whenever it’s available, fans are looking forward to the new interactions the card game will bring.
