Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield of the hit Resident Evil franchise have joined Fortnite!
Fortnite Battle Royale’s latest collaboration is here, and it’s a doozy. Epic Games announced today that Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine of the legendary Resident Evil franchise have entered the world of Fortnite. The two S.T.A.R.S. members and many of the RE series’ most recognizable items will become wearable in the game as part of Fortnite’s Gaming Legend Series. The skin collection also features other gaming icons such as Master Chief, Kratos, Chun-Li, Ryu and Tomb Raider.
This crossover is another milestone in Fortnite Battle Royale. The game has transcended what most people thought was even possible back in 2017 upon its release. Now, two of Resident Evil’s main characters add themselves to Fortnite’s expansive selection.
