You didn’t see this coming.
Aloy, the fan-favorite hero of Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West will make her way to Genshin Impact. The protagonist from the hugely successful Guerrilla titles will be arriving in Genshin Impact in update 2.1. miHoYo made the surprise announcement today, and it gets even better for fans of the character.
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.
Aloy, who will be referred to in Genshin Impact as a “savior from another world”, will arrive in-game for PlayStation players during update 2.1, and for PC and mobile players during update 2.2. Even more interestingly, miHoYo refer to this as the “first collaboration with Horizon Zero Dawn”, so even more might be on the, eh, horizon.
The collaboration, while extremely surprising, actually makes a lot of sense. Horizon is a huge property for Sony, and Genshin Impact has been a massive success on the platform, so some promotional collaboration between the two is a good idea. Aloy is also a superb character and her earnest nature will actually fit in perfectly into the Genshin Impact universe.
She will also be a 5 Star character, so you know she will be strong as hell. We don’t know anything about her kit just yet, but miHoYo has advised that more information will be on the way as update 2.1 gets closer. Update 2.1 is expected to release in early September.

There won’t just be a free Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn heading to Genshin Impact. There will be a weapon too. The official PlayStation Twitter account shared details about the equipment, which will be given to PS4 and PS5 players. When Genshin Impact 2.1 launches, people at Adventure Rank 20 and up will get Aloy’s Predator Bow.
Aloy’s Predator Bow will be a four-star weapon in Genshin Impact. It will only be available for PS4 and PS5 players. It is designed to enhance Aloy’s abilities specifically. The official description for it is as follows.
Dealing Cryo DMG to opponents increases this character’s Normal and Charged Attack DMG by 10% for 6s. This effect can have a maximum of 2 stacks. Additionally, when Aloy equips predator, ATK is increased by 66.
At level 90 and refinement rank 1, this weapon would have 510 attack and a 41.3% ATK buff.
While the Predator Bow is designed with Aloy in mind, there are other existing characters who could make use of it. Both Diona and Ganyu are also Cryo archers. So while they wouldn’t get the ATK bonus, the weapon’s other effect would apply to them.
Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices. It will also eventually appear on the Nintendo Switch. Aloy’s Predator Bow will be sent via in-game mail to all PS4 and PS5 players over AR 20 between the Genshin Impact 2.1 and 2.3 updates.
