Between miHoYo and Sony, it is obviously a successful business. In addition to offering an optimized version on PS5 of its still very popular Genshin Impact, the Chinese developer has just announced an in-game collaboration combining the universe of his game with that of one of the biggest licenses of PlayStation Studios.

barely the first “large-scale” extension of Genshin Impact happens, that miHoYo already teases the arrival of another update. Indeed, the Chinese studio has just revealed that when Genshin Impact version 2.1 is released, Horizon Zero Dawn’s herone Aloy will join the list of its playable characters.
And if Aloy will be usable in all versions of the game, her status as a PlayStation character means that users of Sony consoles will be able to recover her in their version of Genshin Impact before others. Indeed, Aloy “Salvator from another world“(five star character) can be retrieved by PS5 and PS4 players (of a level above or equal to 20) via in-game messaging from version 2.1.
PC, Android and iOS players will have to wait for Genshin Impact version 2.2 to be able to retrieve it via the in-game messaging system. Note also that the herone is not the only Horizon Zero Dawn shooting bonus that players of the versions PS5 and PS4 from Genshin Impact will be able to recover. An exclusive bow (four canvases) can be obtained during versions 2.1 and 2.2. note in passing that this operation is generally limited in time. Once version 2.2 is up, Aloy cannot be recovered.
The official artwork presenting the Genshin Impact version of Aloy is available in our gallery below. As a reminder, Genshin Impact is a Free-to-Play game that can be downloaded for free (therefore) on PS5, PS4, PC and iOS and Android devices. Recently, the game has been cross-save compatible, which means that a game launched on one platform can be continued on another.
