Fortnite Adds Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy Today, But LTM Disabled
Aloy will be able to team up with fellow gaming icon Lara Croft for a new time-limited duos event.
Horizon Zero Dawn protagonist Aloy is the latest crossover character to make an appearance in Fortnite. You can purchase the character now via the Item Shop in the Aloy Bundle, and PS5 owners also get the bonus Ice Hunter Aloy Style. However, a limited-time mode happening alongside her inclusion has been temporarily disabled.
In addition to the skin itself, the bundle includes the Glinthawk Glider, Aloy's Spear Pickaxe, Heart-rizon emote, Blaze Canister Back Bling, and Shield-Weaver wrap. An Aloy the Skywalker loading screen is included in the bundle, too.
The main attraction of Aloy's arrival in Fortnite is a new limited-time mode called Team Up! Aloy & Lara. The mode is available runs until April 19 at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET, but it's temporarily disabled now to give it time to appear on all platforms. The extra day was added to make up for this.
Players will automatically be outfitted as either Aloy or as Tomb Raider's Lara Croft in this Duos mode while their teammate is outfitted as the other gaming icon. Both players will be restricted to their signature weaponry, which means that Aloy can only wield her bow while Lara is equipped with her dual pistols. Wildlife will also be roaming the map and can be defeated to gather materials with which to upgrade your weapons.
In other Fortnite news, you can now get Brie Larson's personal Fortnite Locker, which is inspired by her The Bush Babies squad. The game's new update also changed seasonal weapons and doubled the quantity of crafting parts you'll find as floor loot.
