First Kratos, now Aloy is joining Fortnite

Sony is in again

The last few seasons of Fortnite have been extremely video game oriented.

Kratos and Master Chief were two headliners from the last go-around, and Lara Croft kicked off this new season of the game. Now, Aloy from the Horizon Zero Dawn series is joining the fray. It makes sense, given the “primal” theme of the season, and that bows are a big focus of the weaponry shuffle.

As announced on the Fortnite blog, Aloy will be a part of the game on April 15, and will arrive with the lore-heavy blaze canister back bling, a spear pickaxe, a Glinthawk glider, a Shield-Weaver wrap, a Heart-rizon emote (which creates a wireframe heart in the same vein as some of the narrative briefings) and a bundle-only loading screen.

Generally, these bundles tend to go for 2,200 V-Bucks (a little over $15). Just like Kratos, if you play the game on PS5, you’ll unlock an extra style (Ice Hunter Aloy) for the skin for free If you’re keen, you can also play as Aloy and Lara Croft in a team-up mode, which debuts on April 16 at 9AM ET and runs through April 18 at 9AM ET. Aloy will be kitted out with a bow and Lara will sport her dual pistols.

So when is Nintendo getting in on the action? There’s some “primal” characters they could choose from. Also, don’t forget that there’s a perfect crossover in the form of Monster Hunter.
