Cyberpunk 2077 Cosplay Contest Announced By CD Projekt RED (VIDEO)
While plenty of fans are getting excited for the release of Cyberpunk 2077, which is now less than 10 months away, others have been diving into the cosplay side of things to replicate the myriad of characters we’ve seen so far. For those fans, an official contest has been announced by CD Projekt RED, and there are some pretty sweet prizes up for grabs.
Qualifiers for the Cyberpunk 2077 cosplay contest will be held throughout the next few months until November 30th. Cosplayers can enter the contest either online or during five different gaming events that will be held over the coming months. Those who are unable to win at the offline events can also enter online and return to another event to try again. Five winners from online qualifiers and five winners from the offline events will attend the Grand Finale, which is set to take place in 2020.
“The contest tasks you with creating the most authentic cosplay of an existing Cyberpunk 2077 character,” reads the website. You can use any official trailers, gameplay videos, screenshots and art for the game as reference, or turn to our character cosplay guides, which will be available soon.”
Here are the five offline gaming events that cosplayers will be able to enter:
