Genshin Impact is a gacha game with a difference, and that difference is that the gacha elements are hidden under a fairly complex and interesting JRPG. There’s huge shades of Breath Of The Wild about Genshin Impact, and while few would seriously argue it comes close to Zelda’s quality, it does have one advantage over Hyrule; you can play it in co-op. Kind of. After a while.
When Do You Unlock Co-Op In Genshin Impact?
Co-Op will only become available once you reach Level 16 in the game. It takes around two to three hours to get this far in the game, so you’ll need to have gone and explored the world on your own for a while before you start getting your friends involved to help you out. It’s an unusual approach to Co-Op, which is usually available either from the off or after a short tutorial, but it should at least mean that everyone is fairly decent by the time you can get a squad together.
How Do You Add Friends In Genshin Impact?
At the bottom of your screen, you’ll see UID then a string of numbers. This is your unique identifier, and you’ll need to either give this to a friend or get them to tell you theirs so you can add each other in the game. You send and accept Friend Requests from the Friend section of the Pause menu, and from here can either invite them to your game (or add them to your block list), provided you’re both at Level 16.
What Missions Can Be Completed In Co-Op?
The main missions cannot be completed in co-op at all, so you’re best off focusing on these while you reach Level 16, leaving the side quests and world quests for co-op.
Is There Crossplay?
Nice and easy this one: yes.
Whatever platform you’re playing on, you’ll be able to play with your friends, no matter what platform they’re playing on. It’s sure to be a very popular move among Genshin Impact fans, and means nobody is going to be left out here.
