The Xenomorph and Ripley from the Alien series are now playable skins in Fortnite as part of the game's latest crossover event.

Drawing on the fiction of the movies, Epic Games describes the Xenomorph as having "structural perfection matched only by its hostility." It comes pre-equipped with the Xenomorph Tail back bling and the Xeno Menace emote, in which it sticks out its tongue/second mouth and gives a scream.

For her part, Ripley hits Fortnite in her Nostromo Crew outfit with a Weyland-Yutani Cat Carrier containing Jonesy the Cat.

Players can also pick up the Space Gear Bundle, which includes the P-5000 Power Loader Arm harvesting tool, the Cheyenne Dropship glider, and an emote that parodies the infamous chest burster scene from the first movie. Instead of an alien bursting violently from a robot's guts, the emote has a llama's head protruding from the player in what is apparently a painless process.
