Ahoy there.

A Genshin Impact Horizon Zero Dawn crossover has been announced. For those who are Adventure Rank 20 or above in Genshin Impact, you will eventually be able to add Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy to your collection as a five-star "Savior From Another World". You will be able to obtain her directly through the in-game mail system, but the actual event itself is divided into two phases for how to get Genshin Impact Aloy.

When is Genshin Impact 2.1 releasing with Aloy?

Phase 1 is coming after the Genshin Impact 2.1 Update (which should be coming in early September 2021 with an estimate of September 1), you'll be able to get Aloy from the Genshin Impact Horizon Zero Dawn crossover. To do this, you'll have log into Genshin Impact on a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 before the version 2.2 update, which is scheduled for October 13, 2021. 

For Phase 2, If you don't play Genshin Impact on a PlayStation console, you'll be able to get Aloy starting with Version 2.2, scheduled for October 13th. You will have until version 2.3 is released, which is tentatively set for November 24, 2021. During the event, you'll have to login to Genshin Impact on any platform and then those who haven't yet obtained Aloy during Phase 1 through the in-game mail.

How do I get Aloy's Predator Bow in Genshin Impact?

Aloy's Predator Bow will receive this for free via in-game mail, if you play on PlayStation 4 or 5. In fact, the only way to get the game is to play on PlayStation 4 or 5. Like the Sword of Descension, Aloy's Predator Bow has a special ability exclusively when playing on the PlayStation Network. That ability is Strong Stirke, which deals Cryo DMG to opponents and increases the character's Normal and Charged Attack DMG by 10% for 6s. The effect can be stacked twice, and when the bow is equipped by Aloy, her DMG is increased to 66. You can only get the bow on PlayStation platforms but you can play it on other platforms... just not with the Strong Strike effect.

 
 

Here's Aloy's character summary:

"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!"

So, basically, Aloy is coming to from Horizon Zero Dawn's universe to Genshin Impact's "because there is always more to an adventurer's tale", which sounds like she's coming here to kick some ass and chew bubblegum, but she's all out of gum. She's also described as a Nora Huntress, Cryo, and Nora Fortis, which sounds the beginning of a heavy metal song.
