In this new gameplay mode, players can invite characters, non-playable characters (NPCs), and friends to play a few rounds of the trading card game.

Based on the brief gameplay showcase during the version 3.1 special program, cards will have varying health indicated on the top left corner. Specific cards can cast ultimate skills as soon as they fill up their respective charge meters, indicated by the stars on the left side of the cards.

“This is mainly a PvE mode that’s light and casual,” explained Michael, the Head of Marketing in Genshin Impact Mainland China. “There are no rewards for PvP.”
