Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield from the Resident Evil series have joined Fornite as new character skins, which players can purchase via the in-game item shop. The collaboration between Resident Evil and Fortnite started with the additions of Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, and it has now been expanded with new survivors from the horror franchise.
Leon Kennedy has arrived in the item shop with his attache case back bling outfit and combat knife pickaxe. Players can also equip Claire’s keys back bling and Umbrella Parasol pickaxe, colored in red and white. Claire looks much as she does in the remake of Resident Evil 2, sporting her red jacket combined with jeans. The cosmetic skins are sold as the Scarlet Hero: Claire Redfield bundle in the item shop. Leon Kennedy, on the other hand, looks like a veteran survivor rather than a rookie cop, wearing his tactical pant and belt with a combat knife on his shoulder.
Fortnite has had a number of collaborations with different franchises over the years, such as Dragon Ball, Stranger Things, Cobra Kai, and Marvel. Most recently, Eren Yeager from the Attack on Titan anime and Sam Wilson’s Captain America made their debut in the ever-popular battle royale game. It has also a constant relationship with DC, bringing characters like Aquaman, Batman Zero, and Green Arrow to the item shop and the battle pass. Fortnite has expanded far beyond a shooter game with new collaborations at the start of each season.
Players have been treated to a few original skins with the launch of Chapter 4 Season 2, including Mizuki, Highwire, Stray, and Mystica. The new season is themed around a futuristic neo-Tokyo, adding new vehicles, quests, rewards, and a battle royale island. Lastly, Epic Games has confirmed the arrival of Unreal Editor for Fortnite, which allows players to create in-depth content thanks to a catalog of tools and workflows. It will be available exclusively for PC on March 22.
The Resident Evil franchise, on the other hand, is in the process of reviving old games with upgraded visuals and new gameplay gimmicks. The remake of 2005’s Resident Evil 4 will be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Xbox Series X|S on March 24. In our review, we said: “Resident Evil 4 Remake asks the bold question of whether you can perfect what many already consider perfection. While fairly competent at the basics, Capcom’s latest remake has the least creative energy of its series revivals, leaving you wanting for much more.”
