Genshin Impact to give away a 5-star character

In this collab event, Genshin Impact will introduce a new 5-star, Aloy - the Savior From Another World. She is also the main character in the famous RPG Horizon Zero Dawn. The new character will be given away totally free to all players who have reached Adventure Rank 20.

Aloy will be a Cryo archer in Teyvat. The giveaway event will take place at the beginning of update 2.1 and update 2.2. At the beginning of the next update 2.1 on October 13th, 2021, eligible players will receive this character and her arrow in the mailbox.

If you are not eligible to receive this character in update 2.1, you need to try to reach Adventure Rank 20. Then, you will get this free character in the mailbox at the beginning of the following update - version 2.2. Therefore, you have a great chance to obtain this character for free.

The controversial 4-star bow exclusive to Aloy

Apart from this 5-star character, the mail will include a four-star bow of Aloy which is called Predator. This bow will give her a buff in the gameplay of Genshin Impact. But only Aloy gets this buff. Her skills are designed based on Coils, her main toolset of Aloy in Horizon Zero Dawn. It means that you need a Coil to activate her skills.

Horizon Zero Dawn
Like the 3D version in Horizon Zero Dawn, she is also an archer.

The introduction of Predator raises controversy around Aloy's ability. Many players are afraid that the buff and her skills can make Aloy too overpower. Then, the game may lose its balance. Meanwhile, many other players are scared that this free character won't be useful and powerful because you get what you pay for. They don't believe that a free character can be as good as expected.
