Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy comes to Genshin Impact in version 2.1

Mihoyo has announced that Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn will be added as a playable character in Genshin Impact starting in version 2.1.

While the crossover character will be exclusive to obtain on PlayStation platforms in version 2.1, Mihoyo notes that you'll be able to play as Aloy on all available platforms once you unlock her thanks to the latest cross-save feature. Additionally, Aloy will be made available in version 2.2 for all players. Mihoyo also states that a special four-star bow for Aloy will be exclusively obtained on PlayStation platforms.

The character artwork and description from Mihoyo can be found below. Genshin Impact's major 2.0 update just launched yesterday, and you can catch up on the details here.


An Outcast, Seeker, and proven huntress from the Nora Tribe who saves life on Earth in Horizon Zero Dawn™, Aloy will not hesitate to fight for a cause during her adventures in the world of Teyvat. In addition to her extraordinary archery abilities, she also acquired a Cryo Vision in this world and can wield unique elemental power in combat and exploration. In Version 2.1, Aloy will be featured as a new five-star character "Savior From Another World" who joins the Traveler in unraveling the secrets of Teyvat.

"Savior From Another World" Aloy will be provided free of charge to Genshin Impact players, with exclusive early access for players on PlayStation®. During Version 2.1, players who have reached Adventure Rank 20 or above can receive Aloy via in-game mail after logging in to the game on PS5™ or PS4™. Meanwhile, other players can receive Aloy via in-game mail after logging in to the game on any available platform during Version 2.2. A free four-star Bow that gives Aloy a special buff can also be obtained exclusively on PlayStation® during Version 2.1 and Version 2.2 for players who reached Adventure Rank 20 or above.

The collaboration between Genshin Impact and Horizon Zero Dawn™ will be featured during Version 2.1 and Version 2.2, with more details to be disclosed later.
