By Gajan Kulasingham on
PAX West is underway and Day 2 was filled with some standout cosplay. We saw fans dressed up as a variety of their favorite characters, representing franchises such as Halo, Overwatch, Final Fantasy, Fortnite, Rainbow Six Siege, and more. Of course, we scoured the halls and took pictures of the amazing costumes we saw for you to enjoy. In the gallery above you'll find a selection of the most awe-inspiring cosplay we came across during our travels on the second day of PAX.

Among the games featured in the gallery is Diablo 3, which Blizzard announced is coming to Nintendo Switch. Titled Diablo 3: Eternal Collection, the new version is feature-rich, containing the core game, the Reaper of Souls expansion, Adventure Mode, which is fully unlocked from the start, Challenge Rifts, Kanai's Cube, and the Crusader class. The Rise of the Necromancer pack will also be included. Currently, Diablo 3: Eternal Collection doesn't have a release date but Blizzard has said it's aiming to launch the game in Fall 2018.
Another franchise you'll find cosplay for in the gallery is Microsoft's Halo. During E3 2018, Halo: Infinite was announced for Xbox One. Very little is known about the game, other than it is being created by developers 343 Industries using the Slipstream engine. During the Xbox E3 press conference Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, appeared on stage and described it as Master Chief's "greatest adventure." You can watch the first Halo: Infinite trailer here.
There was also quite a lot of Rainbow Six: Siege cosplay, and fans of Ubisoft's competitive shooter were recently given a release date for its next major expansion. Rainbow Six Siege: Operation Grim Sky will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC from September 4. You can read about everything being introduced, tweaked, and changed in our Operation Grim Sky coverage.
