We've seen some amazing gaming legends join Fortnite Chapter 2, and the latest one continues on the streak of impressive crossovers, with Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy joining the fight. On the heels of Tomb Raider's Lara Croft, Halo's Master Chief, and God of War's Kratos comes another hero found in the crafty hunter from the stunning open-world of Horizon Zero Dawn. 

As part of Fortnite's Primal Season, Aloy is the latest in the Gaming Legends lineup with her normal look joining the game. With her comes a new Fortnite Item addition, special items, a new tournament, and a brand new Limited Time Mode. 

As revealed by the PlayStation BlogAloy joins the world of Fortnite with a few familiar items and an adorable heart emote. This Horizon Zero Dawn bundle will go live on April 15, 2021. Don't want the Bundle? PlayStation has also confirmed that each item can also be bought individually. 

Is this an exclusive? No, but there is an Ice Hunter Aloy skin that will be just for PS5 players based on her Banuk Ice Hunter outfit from the first game. 

For those looking for a more competitive experience, the Aloy Cup has been revealed for a chance to unlock this bundle. For this Duos tournament, players will need to get really comfy with a bow to harness their true power. The tourney is set to go live tomorrow, April 14, and the top-performing teams in each region will unlock this special item before it lands in the shop for everyone else. 

There is also a new Team Up! Aloy & Lara Limited Time Mode as well. According to PlayStation, "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 April 16, fellow members of the Gaming Legends series Aloy and Lara are assembling for a new Limited Time Mode: Team Up! Aloy & Lara."

The post continues, saying, "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."

This is just the latest crossover to join the fray, with even more gaming legends on the way. Thoughts on Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy joining the world of Fortnite? Who would you like to see next? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below!
