Yesterday saw Fortnite fans greeted with the news that Aloy is the latest member of the gaming legend series to join the battle royale scene following the arrival of Lara Croft. However, while you will be able to grab her from the item shop, you have a chance to win her early and this has resulted in people asking: what time does the Aloy Cup start in Fortnite? Here you’ll find the start time for the Cup as well as how to win the skin before it joins the item shop.

As for what else you can expect, know that there will be a limited-time mode between Lara Croft and the Horizon Zero Dawn heroine on April 16th. This will be a Duos mode that will force you and a partner to be outfitted as both famous video game protagonists while wielding the ginger woman’s bow and Lara’s iconic dual pistols.

While the limited-time mode is exciting, below you’ll discover the start time for the Aloy Cup in Fortnite and how to win the skin early.

How to get the Aloy skin in Fortnite

You can get the Aloy skin in Fortnite by purchasing it from the item shop on April 15th.

However, there is the chance to win the skin early and for free by competing in the Fortnite Aloy Cup on April 14th.

Know that this tournament is only available for PS4 and PS5 users, meaning everyone else isn’t eligible which is a shame considering Horizon Zero Dawn is on PC.

Still, for Sony users, they can attempt to win the cosmetic early by competing in the tournament.

You will need to finish between 1st and 800th to win the Aloy skin in Europe, meanwhile you will need to be positioned between 1st and 500th, 1st and 200th in NA East and West respectively.

Those attempting to win will be compelled to use the bow as this will earn eight elimination points as opposed to the standard two.

Check out Epic Games website for the official rules.
