A few hours after the arrival of version 2.0, miHoYo has announced a collaboration that brings Aloy into Genshin Impact, bringing the protagonist of Horizon Zero Dawn. At the moment only a first official artwork has been confirmed through the account Twitter PlayStation, with more information to follow.
This news marks the first real external collaboration between the work of miHoYo and Guerrilla, which will allow all users to be able to redeem this character. The procedure is quite simple and intuitive and is divided into two phases: the first for those who own a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 console and the second for all other users.
In order to redeem this character it will be enough to have reached or passed Adventure Rank 20 and a letter will be sent within the game. The character of Aloy, of the cryo type, will therefore be available to everyone.
The periods there are currently two: the first from October 13, for those who log in from PS4 and PS5, and the second from November 24, for anyone who doesn’t own a Sony console. The first date, as also reported on the official website, coincides with the end of version 2.1, of which we already have some information, and the beginning of version 2.2.

The protagonist of the title developed by Guerrilla it is not uncommon to appear in other games, as has happened in the past on Fortnite, where she appeared together with many other protagonists of other works. However, this is the first collaboration of miHoYo with an external company, which potentially opens the door to many other possibilities and future cameos of other protagonists or protagonists of the world of video games.
At the moment no further details have been provided but, also given the description on the website of Genshin Impact, it is very likely that Aloy will have his trusty bow as a weapon, also represented in the recently released official artwork. We remind you that it will be a 5-star character, which will be added to the extensive list available.
