Aloy, the hero at the heart of Horizon: Zero Dawn, is now available as an unlockable skin in Fortnite. Players can now play as PlayStation’s spear-wielding, machine-hunting champion. What’s more, she’s available in her regular and ‘Ice Hunter’ guises.
Aloy follows in the footsteps of Kratos, becoming the latest of PlayStation’s flagship characters to join the ever growing roster within Epic Games’ free-to-play juggernaut. In Fortnite, Aloy can join forces or tangle with the likes of John Wick, Wolverine, Batman and even Xbox’s main man Master Chief.
Alongside her character skin, Aloy also comes loaded with her signature spear in place of a traditional Fortnite pickaxe and a glider in the form of a Glinthawk — the bird-like machine from Horizon: Zero Dawn. Also included is themed back bling, emotes and more.
Furthermore, Aloy will team up with Lara Croft — also added during the latest season — in a new duos mode. Team Up! will see the pair doing exactly that, with one player picked as Aloy and the other as Lara for the duration of the mode.
Aloy’s return wasn’t expected until Horizon: Forbidden West. The highly anticipated sequel to Guerilla Games’ hit Horizon Zero Dawn is expected to release in 2021 and will be coming to both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
Aloy’s skin and associated accessories are available to purchase now for a limited time. Fortnite’s current season is set to end in June with no indication as to the theme of Season 7 at the time of writing.
