Time to show off your sexy cyborg cosplay skills--CD Projekt RED is hosting an official Cyberpunk 2077 cosplay contest with a $40,000 prize pool.
Cosplay is a kind of microcosm of gaming. It's a celebration of characters, themes, and experiences that go way past the digital medium, bringing creations to the real-world. It's an amazing world with a thriving community of talented, ardent players. It's also one of the best ways to market a game and keep people engaged, and CD Projekt RED's new cosplay contest both celebrates the community and bringing awareness to its biggest game yet.
The Cyberpunk 2077 cosplay event is open to everyone around the world, and fans can enter in one of two ways: digitally, by sending in their photos and creations via the contest website, or by showing up at five events across the globe like gamescom, PAX West, and Paris Games Week.
Cosplayers can enter at a number of events like:
- gamescom (Cologne, Germany), Aug. 21-24
- PAX West (Seattle, USA), Aug. 30-Sep. 2
- Tokyo Game Show (Tokyo, Japan), Sep. 12-15
- Igromir (Moscow, Russia), Oct. 3-6
- Paris Games Week (Paris, France), Oct. 30-Nov. 3
Check below for more info on the contest and a few excellent sci-fi posters that'll surely give you some ideas.
There are two roads you can take to participate in the contest: online and offline.
Offline means we'll be present on select events around the world, waiting for you to showcase your costume live on stage.
A total of 10 finalists - 1 from each event and 5 from online submissions - will be invited to attend the cosplay contest Grand Finale, which will take place in 2020. It's your chance to truly shine on the red carpet!
