As an open world action title, Genshin Impact highlights its feature as freely explorable world, multiple playable characters, an in-depth elemental combo-based combat system and an engaging story.

Genshin Impact aims to offer an immersive adventure experience with vast, breathtakingly beautiful landscapes, an engaging element-based combat system, a diverse cast of characters with richly developed stories, and offers both the classic single-player mode and the cross-platform co-op mode for up to four players.

Players will take on the role of the mysterious "Traveler", setting off the voyage of finding their lost sibling, and ultimately unravels the mysteries of themselves and the world.

Joined by a lively companion called Paimon, players will explore the land filled with varied landscapes, culturally – diverse towns, and treacherous dungeons. By mastering the power of the seven elements with a custom party of up to 4 characters, players will overcome merciless foes and fiendish puzzles.

As a free-to-play online title, Genshin Impact enables players to explore Mondstadt and Liyue Harbor – two of the seven major cities in Teyvat – each with unique cultural ambience, stories, vast surrounding landscapes full of diverse creatures and enemies, mysteries, and hidden treasures. Furthermore, the game will continue to expand with more cities, following stories, new characters and seasonal events through live-service updates to enrich the gameplay and expedition in the continent of Teyvat.

Genshin Impact will launch the first international Genius Invokation TCG Tournament series, "Astra Carnival: The Prince Cup" in the latter half of 2023.

Players from multiple nations and regions across the globe are welcome to join a fun and competitive journey in six regional championships and a number of invitational tournaments, and share the prize pool of over 270,000 US Dollars.

Last December, Genshin Impact introduced Genius Invokation TCG, a card game that combines the fun of its element-based combat system with strategy development, allowing players to compete with NPCs or against each other with their collection of cards. With the most recent Version 3.7 update last week, developers further enriched Genius Invokation TCG’s gameplay by adding over 60 new cards and two game modes.

Earlier this year, Genshin Impact authorized the Genshin Impact Tavern community to launch the first season of “Cat’s Tail Gathering” GITCG Tournament, a community tournament system on Discord. Adding to the excitement, the "Astra Carnival: The Prince Cup" was announced today as an advanced tournament to bring together talented players from different areas and provide fun for its community. Currently, the Prince Cup consists of two parts: six regional tournaments happening between June to September, plus three cross-regional invitationals in June, August, and December.

In each regional, top candidates from the "Cat’s Tail Gathering" community tournaments and wildcard competitions will compete for the regional championship, and players who advance to the quarter-finals will compete on-site, with the live broadcast on the official AstraCarnival Twitter, YouTube, Twitch and TikTok channel. Top regional candidates as well as top community tournament candidates may also get invited to the invitationals and take part in exhibition games for the international audience.

Besides, fans, gamers, and interested third parties may now register their own non-official Genius Invokation TCG tournament and get support and guidance from HoYoverse. For more information, please find Genshin Impact Non-Official Tournament Collaboration Rules here.

Regionals in Korea, Europe, and North America will kick off first, with wildcard competition sign-ups open today.
