Some big news from CD Projekt Red as they announced they will be bringing a live demo of Cyberpunk 2077 to Gamescom 2019. Unfortunately, the demo will not be playable by the public, and instead will simply be a live presentation shown by the developers. According to the info provided, the live demo will take place at the game's booth located in Hall 6, Stand C049. Presentations will take place Wednesday, August 21st through Saturday, August 24th. On top of that, they will be holding a Cosplay Contest for the game, which will be interesting to see since most of the game is still shrouded in mystery and cosplay will be more of a guess and based on what we've seen than anything else. We have more details for the contest below.
This year's gamescom will also play host to the first offline qualifier of the official Cyberpunk 2077 Cosplay Contest. The event will take place on Friday, August 23rd, and will see participants compete for the title of the most authentic Cyberpunk 2077 cosplay. First place prize will include $2000, Cyberpunk 2077-inspired merchandise, as well as a spot in the Cosplay Contest Grand Finale sporting a $30,000 prize pool. Additional organizational details for the Cosplay Contest gamescom qualifiers, including exact time and location, will be revealed at a later date, prior to the event, via the game's social media.
