If you, like many of us, are playing Genshin Impact, you may have noticed that the further you get into the game, the more challenging things start to get. And I don't mean technically — I mean that enemies start to have just, piles of health. Domains, the game's equivalent of dungeons, are far tougher. It sure would be nice if you could do all these challenges with a friend or two, huh?

Fortunately, you can. Genshin Impact has a multiplayer feature that lets you bring up to three friends along on certain adventures. And it's relatively easy to unlock. Here's how you do it:

Adventure Rank 16 is not too difficult to access. Follow the storyline quests (or Archon quests) until you run out and the game tells you to raise your Adventure Rank to proceed. From there, spend time exploring the world, unlocking new waypoints, opening chests, and completing side quests (which will appear in your quest log, or as blue "!" indicators on the map. You can also do commissions for the Adventurer's Guild once you reach Rank 12.

Once you've achieved Adventure Rank 16 and have a friend you want to play with who also has reached that rank, you can play together by opening the Paimon menu and selecting "Co-op."

From there, you'll see a bar at the top where you can enter another player's UserID to search for them. Your UserID is located under your icon on the Paimon menu in the top left.

Enter your friend's UserID while they are online, and you'll be able to join their game and their world. If they want to join your game and your world, they'll have to enter your UserID.

You can also go to the "Friends" icon under the Paimon menu to add other users as friends, also with a UserID. Once they accept your request, you can see them when they're online via the Friends menu and enter one another's games without having to re-enter the number each time.

If you don't know anyone else playing Genshin Impact, you can still play with others. Entering the co-op menu from the Paimon menu will show you a list of other players' worlds you can jump into. Though you'll need to coordinate and communicate to get tasks done, you can still play with others that way.

Additionally, if you want help doing the game's challenging Domains, opening the doors of a Domain will show you an option to look for other players. Doing this will add you to a group of up to three others you can tackle the Domain with. Be aware that whoever is set as "P1" in this group will need to initiate the Domain and make sure to select "Co-op" to bring the others along.
