Does Genshin Impact have multiplayer?

The question as to whether Genshin Impact has multiplayer is Yes. However, it is in the form of a co-op where you can join the world of other players who can control your character. Genshin Impact’s co-op allows a maximum of 4 players at a time and you can take part in all kinds of content.

The only content that you cannot take part in co-op is the story content. You cannot go into co-op during events either except the ones that exclusively allow other players. However, if you want to defeat a boss, complete a domain, or collect materials you can do so in co-op.

In the case of domains, you can join random players by simply clicking on the “Match” option before starting it. Apart from that, you can also join someone else’s world from your friend’s menu as well.
