Aloy will serve as an anniversary gift for Genshin Impact players

It seems like miHoYo is offering this unique otherworldly character as a first-anniversary gift. The studio has planned an elaborate event with the upcoming 2.1 updates that will bring her into the game. Aloy is being dubbed as the ‘Saviour from another world’, who will help travellers uncover secrets and mysteries within Tevyat. PlayStation players will receive this character in update 2.1. Meanwhile, every other platform will receive her via in-game mail in update 2.2.

Moreover. the update 2.1’s event will offer a unique 4-star weapon that will significantly buff Aloy. Players with an adventure rank of 20 and above will be able to participate in the event. This amazing collaboration will be featured across update 2.1 and 2.2. Aloy is going to have a Cryo vision, and she will be the third Cryo bow user of the game, following Diona, and Ganyu.

The studio has definitely produced a great reward for the gamers, who have been diligently playing the game for the past year. By the time, update 2.2 rolls out, the title will step into the month of September, and it also marks the first anniversary of the game.

This reward greatly favors the free-to-play players and longtime veterans of the game. It is most likely that the studio will offer all the constellation points for Aloy within the event. If this turns out to be true, then Aloy could prove to be a powerful 5-star character that is being offered with no added cost. The is collaboration is offering a completely decked out 5-star unit, something that free-to-play players barely ever get to experience.
