Another PlayStation hero is set to appear on Nintendo Switch (kind of), as Horizon Zero Dawn protagonist Aloy is confirmed for Fortnite.
The new character has been officially announced for the game by PlayStation today, following a datamine effort which leaked the reveal ahead of time. Aloy drops into Fortnite on 15th April alongside plenty of items that will be available to purchase.
Outcaster, seeker, and champion, Aloy enters the fray alongside familiar mementos 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 April 15, 2021.
PlayStation’s announcement details a new limited-time mode for the character called ‘Team Up! Aloy & Lara’, which will see Horizon’s heroine joining forces with Tomb Raider‘s Lara Croft. Here, players will automatically be outfitted as either Aloy or Lara in a Duos setting, with their teammate playing as the other character. Weapons will be restricted to just the bow for Aloy and Dual Pistols for Lara, and it all kicks off on 16th April at 6am PT.
You might remember that God of War‘s lead character Kratos joined the game last year, surprisingly being available across all systems rather than as a PlayStation exclusive. It seems Aloy will now follow suit alongside an ever-growing cast of characters that includes Halo‘s Master Chief, The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda, The Terminator, and countless others.
