The Guerrilla Games and MiHoYo have announced their support for open world RPG Genshin Impact, Aloy, the leading character in Horizon Zero Dawn and the next Horizon Forbidden West.
We announced on Twitter (below) how Aloy is translated into the anime-inflected visual style of Genshin Impact and discovered she’s only going to be accessible in the game “for a short amount of time.” She will be a five-star character, with unique combo skills, cryo elemental abilities, and animations.

It will be available for you to unlock your in-game mailbox (and you may play it in any version of the game by cross-saving after you’ve done so). During this time, players will also obtain a 4-star unique bow for Aloy, but no specifics on how.
