They’ve appeared in – count them – Dead by Daylight, The Division 2, a new movie, and a board game already this year, but Resident Evil heroes Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield have finally landed the cameo of a lifetime: Fortnite. To be honest, we had to double-check this hadn’t already happened, but no, the Biohazard duo are making their Battle Royale debut.
The S.T.A.R.S. Team Set includes boulder basher Chris with his alternative Hound Wolf Squad Style outfit, while Jill comes with her alternative Raccoon City Style. You’ll also get a bunch of additional bling, including backpacks inspired by the series’ iconic herbs and typewriters. Then, there’s also a Stun Rod Pickaxe and Hot Dogger Pickaxe, both based on weapons from the Biohazard games.
Perhaps coolest of all is the Brolly Stroll Emote, which… Well, look, just watch this for yourself:
You can buy all of the items a la carte if you prefer, although you will get a neat new loading screen if you plump up for the bundle. All of the items are available now from the Fortnite Item Shop, with the S.T.A.R.S. Team Set weighing in at 2,100 V-Bucks. That’s a little under £15.99/$19.99 in real money, so pricey, but the skins do look nice at least.
