The Last of Us Part 2 is shaping up to be one of 2020’s most-anticipated game releases and this cosplay is definitely helping with the hype.

This PS4-exclusive title has already been delayed until May 29, 2020, but that has only made players even more excited for the release thanks to the extra polish it will be receiving as a result.

The sequel to the 2013 classic has a lot riding on it as the original is largely considered to be one of the best games of all-time. In the seven years since its release, gaming technology has come a very long way, so we’re excited to see what Naughty Dog are able to cook up.

The Last of Us Part II is coming in May.

Since there isn’t a whole lot to share about the game right now, the official Twitter page for Naughty Dog is sending out cosplays for the world to see. The one they posted on February 4 shows the many sides of Ellie and possibly gives us a little glimpse of what to expect from her in the sequel.

In the cosplay by ‘dvbhebrickmvster,’ we see what Ellie looks like at a casual event, with a hunting rifle, and finally, we get a shot of her trying to survive in the zombie apocalypse that makes up the world of The Last of Us.

The 22-year-old Italian cosplayer shares her take on several other characters, but taking a look at her Instagram, it seems clear she specializes in Ellie cosplays.

Many fans were quick to point out that she resembles Dina more, but since Ellie quickly became a fan-favorite character, it’s not surprising that cosplayers gravitate towards her.

The Last of Us II developer is encouraging players to submit their cosplay entries through their Tumblr page. From there, they’ll have a chance to be featured on the dev’s official Twitter for all of the fans to see.

There’s probably going to be more and more fantastic cosplays in the leadup to the game’s release in May, so we’ll be sure to keep an eye on what gets shared next.

A pair of Seoul Dynasty fans have pulled off awesome cosplays of Mercy and Ashe in their team’s colors to celebrate 2020’s Overwatch League Grand Finals run.

The season finale is the biggest weekend of the year for Overwatch esports, and even though there are no in-person events for the Finals in 2020, there are still plenty of fans watching the action and supporting their favorite teams.

This includes Tasha and Doremi, who in addition to being diehard Dynasty fans, can also put together a mean Overwatch cosplay.

For instance, to celebrate Seoul’s Grand Finals appearance, the pair pulled out their Ashe and Mercy creations, which are spot on and appropriately decked out in Seoul’s black and gold.

Tasha certainly does Ashe justice with the hero’s trademark white hair and her trusty Viper Rifle at her side. The jacket and every other part of the cosplay even match the Dynasty’s in-game skin for her.

There are countless Overwatch cosplays out there, but OWL-specific ones seem to be a bit rarer especially considering there have been no live events for the league at all this year.

Doremi and Tasha, who call their duo spiralcats, have been a fixture in the Korean Overwatch esports scene for some time, appearing at multiple events rocking Dynasty-branded skins for a variety of heroes.

Seoul is certainly in a position to make a run for the title, however, they’ll have to make it past the San Francisco Shock, who seem to be in a dominant form already. San Fran already took out the Dynasty earlier in the playoffs and will have to do so again to repeat their 2019 championship on Oct 10.

The boys in black and gold will need all the energy their fans can send to them to pull off the upset and dethrone San Francisco to become the OWL champions, something the team hasn’t been able to achieve yet.
