Price, release date and what you need to know
Fortnite has already been hitting on Halloween this year with tons of collaborations and content, so what better way to celebrate the spooky season than with a crossover with the greatest horror game series of all: Resident Evil.
Most recently seen with Resident Evil Village, RE is the only major ’90s horror franchise still standing and has seen plenty of spinoffs and adaptations over the years, including another big screen adaptation set to release at the end of This year. It’s not the most immediate collaboration with Fortnite, but Jill and Chris are much better suited than the vast majority of crossovers for the game.
Here’s everything you need to know about Resident Evil skins in Fortnite, including how much they’ll cost and when they’re released.

We don’t yet know for sure which Resident Evil skins will be in the Item Shop, but given that it will be called STARS Team, it will likely be at least two of the original characters from the first game.
Expect to see Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine in the Item Shop, both of which are likely available as part of a set.
On a related note, this will be Epic and Capcom’s second major collaboration for Fortnite after two separate crossovers from Street Fighter to Fortnite.
Fortnite Resident Evil skin price
Based on the previous collaboration with Capcom, both Resident Evil skins are expected to cost 1,600 V-Bucks for each and 2,200 V-Bucks for both.
You’ll also likely be able to get a Resident Evil bundle containing all the cosmetics for 2,800 V-Bucks in total (around £ 15.99 / $ 19.99).
Be sure to shop for your V-Bucks before pulling the trigger.
Fortnite Resident Evil Skins release date
Fortnite Resident Evil skins will be available from 8 p.m. ET in the Item Shop starting October 24, 2021.
They’ll likely stay in the Item Shop for at least a week, but maybe the rest of Fortnitemares, depending on how long previous collaborations have been available.
Fortnite is free on PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Android.
