The intel comes by way of an official tweet and a blog post on Epic Games’ official site revealing the news. Go ahead and check out a rundown of the new additions down below:

After surviving countless horrors in the Spencer Mansion and beyond, S.T.A.R.S. veterans Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine find themselves on the Island to face The Sideways’ Cube Monsters. Fend off Cube Monsters (and your opponents) like your life depends on it with the S.T.A.R.S. Team Set, available now in the Fortnite Item Shop!

Whether you’re taking down Cube Monsters or storming IO labs, stop evil in its tracks as boulder enthusiast Chris Redfield and the “master of unlocking” Jill Valentine. The Chris Redfield Outfit comes with the alt Hound Wolf Squad Style, based on his clash in a snowy village, and the Jill Valentine Outfit comes with the alt Raccoon City Style, based on her desperate escape from a relentless pursuer.

As you can see, both Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield’s character outfits will be available in the Item Shop as part of the new S.T.A.R.S Team Set. Each character will offer two different styles to choose from, too.

Additionally, you’ll be able to customize your Resident Evil outfit even further with a bunch of recognizable knick-knacks from the acclaimed horror series:

Other items you can store in your Locker’s inventory spaces? Fresh from the Arklay Mountains, put on the Green Herb Back Bling (with the alt Red Herb and Blue Herb Styles), take your typewriter with you with the Saving Keystrokes Back Bling, show off with the HOT DOGGER Pickaxe (Umbrella-developed anti-bioweapon knife), and swing what once belonged to evil: the Stun Rod Pickaxe.

The new S.T.A.R.S Team Set is available for purchase in Fortnite’s Item Store right now. Of course, these items will likely only be available for a limited time, so if you want them, we’d suggest pulling the trigger sharpish.
