Epic Games’ passion for Capcom continues unabated. The developer of the game he added in Fortnite the legendary Resident Evil characters Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine (aka the “master of unlocking”), with numerous references to the zombie killing franchise.
Chris and Jill have alternate costumes that nod to their appearances in Village and Nemesis, while Back Bling offers three shades of Resident Evil’s vital herbs.
There are themed pickaxes and even a “walk” emote that makes fun of everyone’s least loved fictional society.
The outfits and gear are available for purchase in separate STARS Team and STARS Team Gear bundles. The Resident Evil packs are particularly timely drops given Halloween and the hordes of “Cube Monsters” this season, and we won’t be surprised if they lose some of their initial luster.
However, this is a gaming crossover Fortnite which makes sense: Chris and Jill are already well dressed for a bitter struggle for survival.
