Fortnite added the Resident Evil characters with an entire set of cosmetics. The items will be part of the S.T.A.R.S. Team set. The character skins will include two styles that are inspired by the Resident Evil franchise, and Chris’ alternative look is modeled on his appearance in Resident Evil Village, while Jill’s outfit is inspired by the Resident Evil 3 remake.
