While resting, you will come across the ‘Online Lobby’; selecting it will take you to the multiplayer or Coop, where you’ll have three different options which are;

  • Recruit
  • Coop
  • Invade

Recruit allows you to play with random players, whereas coop allows you to play with your friends in the game. Invasion is a new mechanic added to Team Ninja’s games with Wo Long. However, it works in a similar fashion to Fromsoftware games, where you will invade other players’ worlds and try to kill them.
