Horizon Zero Dawn star Aloy looks set to join Fortnite soon for a crossover mode with Lara Croft.
Files relating to the PlayStation favourite have been uncovered in the game’s new v16.20 update, released today. These include word of an upcoming limited-time mode featuring Aloy and Lara focused on looting animal parts and tech.
Strings from the new LeadAlloy LTM:
“Team Up! Aloy & Lara”
– “Use loot from wildlife and technology to upgrade your weapons”
– “All Weapons can upgrade to legendary quality”
– “Keep an eye out for wildlife, you never know what might be lurking in the bushes”

The mode sounds like it will feature an increased number of animal spawns and the ability to upgrade any weapon to the game’s top legendary tier, regardless of the usual restrictions.
This Fortnite season has a primal theme and features several Lara Croft variants as part of its battle pass. An Aloy skin now also seems inevitable, though likely currently lies encrypted within Fortnite’s files.
Fortnite recently brought in fellow PlayStation mascot Kratos from God of War, so this is hardly unprecedented – but it’s still another big name from gaming to get the nod, and will of course mark Aloy’s debut in a game on non-PlayStation consoles.
Who next, in this primal season? Bowser?
