Genshin Impact x Horizon Zero Dawn Crossover Details Teased

Aloy Joins the Hunt in Genshin Impact

When I first saw the picture pop up on my Twitter feed detailing a Genshin Impact x Horizon: Zero Dawn crossover, I thought it was just wishful fanart. It absolutely was not. This is actually going to happen. MiHoYo has struck a deal with Guerilla Games to have Aloy join the ranks of Genshin Impact as a free, five-star character. You can read the full overview here.

The blog post from miHoYo states that she’ll be a five-star Cyro bow user that’ll be delivered via the in-game mail system for all PS4/PS5 owners after version 2.1 drops somewhere around September (PC/Mobile will be getting it after 2.2 drops sometime around October). This event will be divided into two phases, during which it’ll be after the first phase that the mail will be sent with her and her bow to any PS4/PS5 users. So far, there are no details on what the event will entail, other than getting Aloy and her Predator Bow. However, it’d be safe to assume there’ll either be a character banner or an actual quest sequence as part of the event, as Aloy will have her constellation, Nora Fortis. So there’ll likely be some given way to get that leveled up (unless they just give her to us with a fully leveled constellation, to which I wouldn’t be complaining at all).

The most interesting part is that the Predator Bow’s effect will only trigger if you play on PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5. Now, there are currently no mentions on how this will be factored in for cross-save. You can read the original post for the bow here.

That concludes everything we know thus far about the Genshin Impact x Horizon Zero. This is certainly a change of pace for MiHoYo (though, admittedly, it makes more sense than the KFC crossover). With any luck, we’ll be seeing more crossovers down the road with other titles. Time will tell, but until then, this is Traveler Cory, signing off!
