The hero of Horizon Zero Dawn is heading to Fortnite as part of the battle royale game’s new Primal season. On Tuesday, Sony and Epic Games announced that Aloy is the latest gaming legend to join Fortnite, and she’ll be part of a Limited Time game mode to celebrate.

When Aloy arrives in the game, players will also be able to pick up a Horizon Zero Dawn-themed glider, harvesting tool, weapon wrap, emote, and back bling. The Aloy skin will also have an alternate style which players can unlock by logging into the game on PlayStation 5.

Shortly after her release, Aloy will be welcomed into the game with a new Limited Time Mode called Team Up! Aloy and Lara. This will be a duos mode where one player in the duo is randomly chosen to be Tomb Raider star Lara Croft and the other Aloy. Aloy will only be able to use the bow in the mode — her primary weapon from Horizon Zero Dawn — while Lara will use her signature dual pistols. Players will be able to hunt down wildlife and upgrade their weapons as they try to survive with their limited arsenal.

Aloy is set to arrive in Fortnite on April 15 when players can purchase the Aloy Outfit, any of her accessories, or the Horizon Zero Dawn Bundle. Team Up! Aloy and Lara is scheduled to go live on April 16 at 9 a.m. EDT.
