Dataminers have uncovered evidence suggesting that an Aloy skin and a new limited time mode are coming to the battle royale game.
Fortnite has accrued quite the collection of recognizable characters from all across entertainment media over time, with skins for various properties including the likes of Terminator, Street Fighter, and Tomb Raider in recent weeks. In fact, the last few months have been particularly significant, because in addition to those, the battle royale shooter has also managed to snag some pretty major first party icons with God of War’s Kratos and Halo’s Master Chief. And it seems it isn’t done yet.
Dataminers have been digging into Fortnite’s files, and it seems they’ve found evidence of a skin for Horizon Zero Dawn’s Aloy being headed for the game. @Hypex notes on Twitter that the skin will be coming soon, and that she will have her own limited time mode as well. Meanwhile, @ShiinaBR provides potential details on that limited time mode, which will apparently see Aloy and Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft teaming up to use technology and loot from wildlife to upgrade their weapons and gear.
It remains to be seen how long we’re going to have to wait for an official announcement for this (or if there even will be an official announcement), but we’ll keep our eyes peeled, so stay tuned to GamingBolt.
