The new RPG game Genshin Impact by miHoYo invites us to explore a huge open world full of adventures. Genshin Impact multiplayer options allow you to share the gaming experience with up to 3 friends, although initially this possibility is not available and we must unlock it.

Genshin Impact free to play experience also is not a Genshin Impact MMO kind of game, meaning there will be some restrictions on multiplayer to prevent your normal single-player experience from being tampered with. Essentially Genshin Impact single player is the standard mode and multiplayer is only extended to limited co-op play (for now).

Regardless, we will be looking at what you must do to access the multiplayer options and invite your friends, along with other information you should know about Genshin Impact multiplayer:

1. How to Unlock Genshin Impact Multiplayer?

As we have said, the multiplayer options of Genshin Impact are blocked when starting a new game. But do not worry, because to unlock the multiplayer, you only have to be mindful of the following steps:

  • You will have to play for a few hours alone (approximately 10 hours) to raise your Adventure Rank to level 16.
  • The level of your character is not the same as the level of the Adventure Rank.
  • When you reach level 16 of the Adventure Rank you will unlock the multiplayer.
  • A star will appear at the top of your screen, near the minimap, allowing you to access multiplayer from then on.

Adventure Rank determines how strong your enemies are in the world, among other things. Remember that to increase the level of the Adventure Rank you can perform a lot of different activities such as completing missions, overcoming Domains, opening chests, unlocking teleportation points, or leveling up the Statues of the Seven.

2. How to Invite Friends to Genshin Impact Multiplayer

Once you have unlocked the multiplayer options in Genshin Impact, you can share your adventure with 3 more players who have also reached Adventure Rank 16 or higher. You just have to click on the button for multiplayer and your friends' list will appear. You must share the UID (unique identifier) with each other.

  • You can invite up to 3 more friends to be the host of the game.
  • You can also allow unknown players to join your game
  • You can join another host's game as a guest.

3. Genshin Impact Multiplayer Features and Limits

You should bear in mind that when Genshin Impact is played cooperatively with more players, certain features and limits are established that are not present when playing alone. Here is what you need to know:

  • All players joining a game will have access to teleports unlocked by the host player.
  • Only the host of the game can open treasure chests, continue with the story missions, and interact with NPCs.
  • Playing cooperatively is a great opportunity to explore the world, clear dungeons more easily, complete daily quests together, gain character experience, and much more.

Remember that everyone you invite must be Adventure Rank 16 in order to play multiplayer, and there are other restrictions on what you can do when playing online. First of all, only a maximum of four players can play together at any time.

Also, you cannot complete any main quests while playing co-op. When you join someone's game, you cannot open chests, collect certain items, or make offerings to the Statues of the Seven. Please be aware of these restrictions when playing with friends.

4. Does Genshin Impact Multiplayer Have Crossplay?

Genshin Impact features crossplay on all platforms. Genshin Impact console players on the PS4, PC users, and iOS/Android users can have fun and explore the game world together. Friends from other devices can be added to your friends' list using their UID found in the lower right corner of the screen.

The Nintendo Switch version of Genshin Impact will presumably be playable with other devices when it launches at a later date.

5. Genshin Impact Multiplayer Not Working

If Genshin Impact multiplayer isn't working for you, there are a few things you can try. First, make sure you have met all the necessary requirements to play online. You must have Adventure Rank 16 before you can play with friends. Make sure your friends meet that requirement as well, as they can't join you if they don't have Adventure Rank 16.

If you still can't enter the same session, try having another player organize the session. Someone's bad connection could be causing the problem. Lastly, if the problem persists, you will have to wait for an update or patch that addresses the problems. Follow Genshin Impact on Twitter for updates.
