“Horizon: Zero Dawn” protagonist Aloy will join Genshin Impact in the 2.1 update, and there is no release date yet. However, if MiHoYo sticks to its update schedule, you can expect the update to drop in about six weeks. This means that Aloy may be added at the beginning of September or some time within that time frame.

One thing to note is that PS4 and PS5 players will be able to get it through update 2.1, but mobile and PC gamers will have to wait for update 2.2. There is no exact date for Aloy’s release.
The good news is that although she is a 5-star character, as part of the crossover event, Aloy will be completely free to all players. Once these updates are launched on the relevant platforms, players with at least AR20 can receive them by checking their in-game emails.
She will be able to use Cryo’s special abilities, and her weapon of choice is bow and arrow, which should not be surprising for Horizon fans.
