Time for another crossover and this one finds Horizon Forbidden West’s heroine Aloy travel to the world of Genshin Impact as the “Saviour from another world”. Aloy will be available for free.
Here’s some blurb about the character.
An outcast since birth, Aloy grew up in a harsh mountain wilderness near the tribe that shunned her. Fostered by an expert hunter, she trained to hunt with cat-like grace and deadly accuracy – but the things she most wanted to learn, he could not teach her. Most of all, she burned to know the circumstances of her birth – who her parents were, and why she was shunned by the tribe.
Her quest for answers swept her into a wider and more dangerous world than she ever could have imagined. She encountered strange and powerful new tribes, ancient ruins rife with mysteries, and dangerous enemies, both human and machine.
Eventually she learned that her origins and destiny were deeply tied to the fate of the world itself, and fought an epic battle to save it against the evil forces of an artificial intelligence from the ancient past. She thought that this would be the end of her journey. But there is always more to an adventurer’s tale. She has now come to Teyvat in search of a new challenges.
In this brave new world, Aloy is ready for the hunt! 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!”
Genshin Impact was one of our favourite RPGs of 2019 and one that has found a thriving global fanbase. Miguel reviewed the game at launch on PlayStation 4, awarding the title an 8 out of 10 – here’s what he had to say:
Genshin Impact needs to be played to be believed. This is an addictive open-world adventure with gorgeous art and unique combat…and it’s free! The character designs are sharp and beautiful, while the pastel-style world itself is full of jaw-dropping colour and natural vistas…and it’s free! Sure, there’s the admittedly stingy gacha system, but if you just want an immersive and peaceful world to climb and fly around in for hours, then Genshin Impact is for you.
The PS5 enhanced version of Genshin Impact was released at the end of April.
