The makers of Genshin Impact don’t seen to have any problem coming up with new characters, but nevertheless, the game will soon be getting its first-ever guest character in Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn and the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West. Aloy is being remade in Genshin’s trademark anime-inspired style, which will no doubt be cause for much debate. You can get a fuller look at Genshin Aloy, below.
The Genshin Impact version of Aloy will wield her trademark bow and Cryo magic. Here’s a very quick description...
Aloy - Savior From Another World
- Nora Huntress
- Nora Fortis
"I'm not much for talking about myself. The mission is what's important." An agile hunter from the Nora tribe. With bow in hand, she's always ready to protect the innocent. Travelers, let's welcome Aloy – "Savior From Another World!"
Despite originating in a Sony-published game, Aloy will not be PlayStation exclusive. PlayStation owners will get a month of exclusive access, but then she’ll be available on all platforms. Aloy will be a 5-star character, and unlike others, can be obtained free of charge by anyone with an Adventure Rank of 20 or more without having to engage with the game’s gacha system. Here’s when you'll be able to add Aloy to your party...
