Fortnite has also given Xbox players a chance to play as Aloy. She is the main character in the Horizon series, which is otherwise a PlayStation exclusive. In a recent blog post, Epic Games announced that the addition of Aloy would be celebrated with a new limited-time game mode.

The game mode is called Team Up! Aloy and Lara and will pair players in duos. In teams of two, each player will be assigned either the role of Lara or Aloy. Those playing as Aloy will wield a bow which they can further craft, whereas Lara will wield dual pistols.

Epic has also added a new Grappling Bow exotic item into the battle royale. It can be purchased from the new NPC Lara Croft at Stealthy Stronghold for the price of 500 gold bars.

The item is similar to the grappler in terms of functionality. A well-aimed shot will propel a player extremely long distances. It is a much-needed mobility item in a game that is in desperate need of them.
