Genshin Impact players can now play as Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn. However, as of patch 2.1, she’s only available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players. Our Genshin Impact guide explains how to get Aloy and when PC and mobile players can unlock her.

To grab Aloy, your Adventurer Rank needs to be at least 20.

If you play Genshin Impact on PS4 or PS5, you can unlock Aloy right away by claiming her from your mail. You’ll need to log in before the patch 2.2 maintenance on Oct. 13 to get her, according to the most recent patch notes. After this, she’ll sit in your mailbox for a year before she expires, so make sure to pick her up before then.

For players on PC and mobile versions of the game, you’ll need to wait until patch 2.2 before Aloy becomes available. You’ll be able to log in any time after the launch of patch 2.2 and before the maintenance for patch 2.3 to claim her through the mail.

Aloy is a Cryo bow-user and the first collaborative character to be added in Genshin Impact. She does have a constellation to beef up her stats, but since there’s no multiple of her, it remains locked. To upgrade Aloy, you need items from Inazuma, meaning that your Adventurer Rank needs to be 30 or higher. She requires Crystalline Blooms, Crystal Marrow, and Spectral Husks to ascend.
