Jill, on the other hand, will appear with her look from the 2002 remake of Resident Evil for the Nintendo GameCube, complete with her S.T.A.R.S. beret.

Aside from that, according to a post in Epic Games' Fortnite webpage, their alternate skins will also appear, and designed after their modern appearances.

Chris will have his alternate Hound Wolf Squad Style skin, which, according to Gizmodo, is based on his get-up on Resident Evil Village, complete with a long jacket, black turtleneck innerwear, and his fully-bearded face.

Jill, on the other hand, will appear in her alternate Racoon City Style skin, which based on her look from the 2020 Resident Evil 3 remake, complete with her blue top, black pants, and black boots.

In addition to these Character Skins, the said collaboration between Fortnite and Resident Evil also brought in other items that were inspired after the elements from the survival game.

According to IGN, players can have the signature Herbs with the Green Herb Back Bling, with Red Herb and Blue Herb alternate styles, as well as the Saving Keystrokes Back Bling, which is designed after the keyboard players usually interact in several Resident Evil games in order to save their progress.

They can also possess the HOT DOGGER Pickaxe, which is designed after the Umbrella Corporation-developed anti-bioweapon knife that appeared Resident Evil 3 2020 Remake, and the Stun Rod Pickaxe, which is based after the melee weapon of the same name that was first seen in Resident Evil 4, but became a playable item in Resident Evil 5.

Aside from these items, they can also get the Brolly Stroll emote, which according to the video uploaded in the game's YouTube channel, let them stroll while twirling a mini-umbrella that looks like the logo of the Umbrella Corporation.

Last June, Jill, along with Leon Kennedy, appeared in Dead by Deadlight as part of a collaboration event between two survival games, as well as a celebration for Resident Evil's 25th year anniversary.

Aside from the said characters, Nemesis, Umbrella Corporation's deadly Bio Organic weapon, also made an appearance as the game's Killer.
