Well, that didn’t take long. Epic flipped the switch not long after we posted the original story, bringing Chris and Jill into Fortnite as part of the S.T.A.R.S. Team Set.
Already having crossed over with Street Fighter characters earlier, Capcom has now brought Resident Evil alumni Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine over to Fortnite. Twitter user (and noted Fortnite leaker) HYPEX had spotted indications earlier that Epic would be making the announcement soon.
Chris and Jill arrive in the original RE skins, as well as Jill’s Resident Evil 3 remake skin, and Chris’ Resident Evil Village garb. Players can also snag the Green Herb Back Bling (with the alternate Red Herb and Blue Herb Styles), and the Saving Keystrokes Back Bling as cosmetics, as well as the HOT DOGGER Pickaxe (Umbrella-developed anti-bioweapon knife), and the Stun Rod Pickaxe.
And of course, you can also grab the Brolly Stroll Emote:
If you want the whole pack, there’s the S.T.A.R.S. Team Gear Bundle, which also comes with a Survival Loading Screen, featuring artwork by Rodrigo Lorenzo.
The skins are available on the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions of Fortnite.
