As soon as you enter the world of Genshin Impacta ton of content and information is thrown at you such as leveling, characters, gear, and more.
With so much to do and discover within opening hours, you might forget that it’s also a fully online experience.
That means you can team up with a friend to share the adventure, but the process of doing that isn’t exactly straightforward.
Here’s everything the game doesn’t tell you about playing with friends in Genshin Impact.
How to play Genshin Impact with friends
Genshin Impact is available for PC, PS4 and mobile devices, and you can play with your friends on all devices.
Before you can do that, however, you need to meet a certain requirement in the game itself.
Level up the Adventure Ranking
You will not be able to host an online co-op party on Genshin Impact until you reach adventure rank 16.
If you try to play online before that point, you will find that the option is blocked for you. Your adventure level is essentially your level, increasing as you take on quests and complete tasks throughout the game.
The 16 rating is somewhat arbitrary, but it ensures that you and anyone you play with are familiar enough with the game to at least understand how to play and be part of the high-level content.
Once you, and whoever you’re trying to play with, reach Adventure Rank Level 16, the option to start a co-op session will appear in your menu.
To find it, enter the main menu and you will be able to join or host an online session. If you are hosting, simply select “My Multiplayer” at the bottom of the co-op screen.
From here you can select whether or not you want to allow someone to join you directly, have the game automatically reject any party requests you receive, or only allow people to join you after you approve the request. .
If you’re trying to join a friend’s game, just type the player’s name and UID into the search function to find them in the list.
