After its first massive content expansion featuring an all-new nation Inazuma in Version 2.0 yesterday, Genshin Impact continues to surprise fans and players by announcing its first collaboration with Horizon Zero Dawn – the multi-award-winning action-RPG title developed by Guerrilla.
Starting from Version 2.1, the legendary hunter Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn will join the Genshin Impact character roster as a five-star character. Players across PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, Android, and iOS can obtain this new five-star character for free within a limited time.
Genshin Impact is a free-to-play open-world action RPG that brings players to the visually-stunning world of Teyvat. The player takes on the role of the mysterious “Traveler,” who sets off on a journey to discover the fate of their lost sibling.
During their adventures, players will explore many regions with unique cultures and landscapes, meet a diverse cast of characters, master the art of element-based combat, and delve deeper into the mysteries of the world of Genshin Impact.
With the latest cross-save function, players can now continue their adventure across PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, Android, and mobile.
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.
The game is available for download on PS4 and PS5 from the PlayStation Store, on Android from Google Play, on iOS from the App Store, and on PC from Epic Games Store or the Genshin Impact official website.
First released in September 2020, the game has been rated T for Teen by ESRB on PS5, PS4, PC, and Google Play, and 12+ on iOS.
