Aloy from Guerilla Games’ Horizon Zero Dawn and the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West is soon joining the fray of Fortnite’s current Primal Season.
As Aloy arrives as the latest member of the Gaming Legends series, Epic Games is also adding a new tournament and Limited Time Mode.
Introducing the Horizon Zero Dawn Bundle
Aloy enters the fray alongside familiar mementoes of her Horizon Zero Dawn adventure. In addition to the Aloy Outfit, all these items will be available for purchase in the Item Shop starting from 15 April 2021.
These include the Blaze Canister Back Bling, the Glinthawk Glider and the Aloy’s Spear Pickaxe. Using the Heart-rizon Emote, players can express themselves with the Focus effect, and inspired by the Shield-Weaver armour, they can adorn their weapons and vehicles with the Shield-Weaver Wrap.
All items in the Horizon Zero Dawn Bundle will be available individually, but the Bundle includes the Aloy the Skywatcher Loading Screen as an added bonus. Additionally, anyone who owns the Aloy Outfit and plays Fortnite on their PS5 will unlock the Ice Hunter Aloy Style, based on the Banuk Ice Hunter outfit from Horizon Zero Dawn.
Compete in the Aloy Cup for a chance to unlock the Horizon Zero Dawn Bundle early
Fitting for the Primal Season, bows are more prominent than ever on the Island. Players can participate in the Aloy Cup, available only on PS5 and PS4. This Duos tournament happens on 14 April 2021, and the top-performing teams in each region will unlock the Horizon Zero Dawn Bundle before it enters the Item Shop.
In the Aloy Cup, you and your Duos partner will compete to be the last team standing, but the twist is that you’ll get bonus points for eliminations with a bow. Players are able to compete in 10 matches in their region’s three-hour time window, and the specific timing for each region can be found in the Compete tab in-game.
Two gaming legends join forces in the “Team Up! Aloy & Lara” limited time mode
When Fortnite’s current Season began, gaming icon Lara Croft was one of the varied veterans of the wild to join the primal fight. Starting from 16 April 2021, fellow members of the Gaming Legends series Aloy and Lara are assembling for a new Limited Time Mode: Team Up! Aloy & Lara.
Players will automatically be outfitted as either Aloy or Lara in this Duos mode, with their teammate being outfitted as the other. At your disposal will only be the bow for Aloy and Dual Pistols for Lara — keep an eye out for wildlife and master your crafting skills to upgrade your weapons.
Team Up! Aloy & Lara will run from 9pm GMT+8 on 16 April 2021 to 9pm GMT+8 on 18 April 2021.
Good times on the horizon
Speaking on PlayStation Blog, Guerilla Studio Director & Executive Producer Angie Smets said:
“We’re thrilled that Epic has invited Aloy to play! As a fast, agile hunter and a proven competitor, we know she’ll make an amazing addition to the Fortnite universe.
Moreover, Epic has done an exceptional job with Aloy’s kit, including her outfit and spear, staying true to her likeness in Horizon Zero Dawn. Even better, they’ve included fun and authentic extras like her Glinthawk glider, Blaze Canister backbling, and Shield Weaver wrap. There’s even a special emote which Horizon fans are sure to love.
Special thanks to all the devs at Epic for making this exciting collaboration happen. We can’t wait to see Aloy glide into battle.”
Other PlayStation exclusive icons like God Of War‘s Kratos have also joined Fortnite.
