Once you get up to around Adventure Rank 25, Genshin Impact starts to turn into a different thing. What was once a story-driven affair evolves into something more like a traditional MMO.
This isn't to say there isn't anything to do, though there are fewer novel things to uncover at this stage in the game. That being said, this is where you really need to start focusing your energy in the right direction, particularly if you're a non-paying player. Read on below to get a sense of what to expect in Genshin Impact's mid-game.

Genshin Impact has unveiled its first of what we can expect to be many special events and ongoing content updates. This latest update adds the Elemental Crucible Event. This event is available to any players that have reached Adventure Rank 20, have completed the Prologue, and completed a minor new quest from Timaeus that introduces the event itself.
Read on below for more info about how this event works and if you should take it on.
Now that Dragalia Lost has been out for a bit, most players have likely found time between limited events like Loyalty’s Requiem and Trick or Treasure to complete the game’s campaign. If you somehow haven’t yet though, make sure you do, as completion of Dragalia Lost’s campaign unlocks a new mission type called The Imperial Onslaught.
The Imperial Onslaught is a pretty tough mission type, but they’re extremely worth adding to your daily regimen once you have access to them. These missions grant unique rewards that can allow you to do everything from advance your Facility Level to create some of the most powerful weapons in the game. See below for everything you need to know about The Imperial Onslaught.
Overkill 3 is a pretty enjoyable third-person shooter that was sort of begging for some online multiplayer. Fortunately the begging can stop, because its newest update has added an online co-op mode.
Terra Battle Celebrates a Major Milestone with a Co-op Mode and New Characters Designed by Famed Artist Yoshitaka Amano
Terra Battle, by Mistwalker Corporation, has surpassed 1.5 million downloads worldwide. To celebrate, they've announced that Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy) is designing some new characters for the game. They're also adding a new scenario from Yasumi Matsuno (Final Fantasy XII and Vagrant Story), and a Terra Battle figure.
As if that wasn't cool enough, they're also adding a co-op mode. You'll be able to team up with friends to complete stages, story mode dungeons, and co-op specific dungeons. When you clear a co-op dungeons you'll also have a chance to get a summons, which let you summon monsters to help you fight. There will also be some new characters from Terra Battle illustrator Kimihiko Fujisaka.
You can download your own copy of Terra Battle for free on the App Store. The co-op update will be available sometime in the future. Hopefully soon-ish.
Update #15 has arrived for Badland, bringing with it a new co-operative mode and new missions.
The co-operative mode allows up to four players on the same device, either with touches or controllers, to play through 40 levels from the Day 1 campaign modified for co-op play. Alongside this, the game now contains 120 new missions, 7 new achievements, the ability to randomly select levels in multiplayer mode, and minor fixes for the "ACCELERATOR" and "CLONETRON" levels.
Badland is available now for $3.99.
Pocket Gamer reports that 505 Games has updated Terraria by adding multiplayer co-op gameplay. Now up to four players can adventure together in co-op, or fight against one another in player-vs-player duels that include one vs one and team battles. Players can also drag items and easily drop them into the open world. Now grab a few buds and begin adventuring together!
I’ve only ever positively associated two franchises with the word “Avatar.” The first is the fantastic animated series on Nickelodean (watch it if you haven’t yet, seriously), and the second is Ultima. It was never quite as huge an RPG franchise as Final Fantasy, but it’s got more than enough die-hard fans to justify an iOS rekindling. Hence the upcoming Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar.
For those unfamiliar with the series it’s essentially a fantasy action RPG set in the same world (Britannia) but with ever changing threats. Each game also stars a legendary hero known as The Avatar. Hence the title. Ultima Foraver is set over twenty years after the events of Ultima IV with Lord British stepping down from the throne and his progeny, Lady British, taking over. The land is once again in peril and once again in need of The Avatar. A horrible disease referred to as “the Black Weep” is slowly consuming the land; turning people into monsters, ugly-ing up the countryside, and generally being a nuisance. Players must combat the Weep while also conditioning their character to become the next Avatar if Britannia is to have any hope of survival (Spoiler Alert: the series has currently already crossed into double-digits).
Ultima Forever is going to be an online RPG, but without all the rampant ganking found in Ultima Online (thank goodness). The focus this time is on co-op, with up to four players able to team up to take on an assortment of the game’s dungeons. Dungeons that scale in difficulty, depending on the number of participants of course. The number of players can also have an effect on what areas can be accessed as certain locks and other puzzles require a specific number of people present to interact with them. Combat itself is also a bit more involved with position playing a key role. Attacking from the sides and especially the back will typically do more damage, and many enemies incorporate attacks with specific hit zones that can be avoided with enough practice. And as one would expect there’s going to be loot aplenty. But this is looking to be more than a mere dungeon crawler, however.
As I’ve mentioned, there’s an emphasis on turning each player’s character into The Avatar, and to do that they need to master the Eight Virtues. Each Virtue has its own meter that fills up based on the dialog choices a player makes as well as some of the quests they complete. Once they’ve mastered all eight (no easy task as it requires building up a good reputation in all of Britannia’s many towns, among other things) they can throw their own little Avatar parade.
Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar is still a few months away with a predicted Spring release, but it’s already looking pretty sharp. And it’s going to be free-to-play, so I expect to see a lot of would-be Avatars running around Britannia when I load it up.
