Fortnite and crossovers - they just go together. New collaborations are announced again and again. In our weekly series, we introduce you to one Fortnite skin at a time. Today, it's Jill Valentine's turn.
More and more characters from series, movies, or other games appear as skins in Fortnite, just like the recent Naruto skin. To make sure you don't lose track of the story behind the characters, we'll keep you up to date. Our weekly series returns with a really nice collaboration between Epic Games and Resident Evil: Jill Valentine!
Fortnite Skin Jill Valentine
Of course, Jill Valentine was given a Fortnite skin, as she is the most popular character from the zombie shooter. She comes from the Japanese horror video game series Resident Evil, developed by Capcom. The series consists of various survival horror, third-person shooter, and first-person shooter games. As the popularity of the video game series grew, so did the franchise, adding a live-action film series, animated films, television series, comics, novels, audio dramas, and of course lots of merchandise.
The original game and the many prequels, sequels, and spin-offs of the franchise are set in and around Raccoon City, a fictional place in the Midwest of the US. The city and its outskirts are home to several bioengineering labs run by the Umbrella Corporation, which develops viruses for biological warfare. One of these labs, which remains nameless in the video game series and is referred to as "The Hive" in the film adaptations, is located under Raccoon City and is the place where the T-virus is developed. As Umbrella's mutagen tests grow in scale, the virus is leaked into Raccoon City. The organization known as S.T.A.R.S. fights its way through the monsters ravaging the city to investigate Umbrella's involvement in the disaster.
Various main characters are members of this tactical unit, including Jill Valentine.
