February 16 marks the start of Chinese New Year; a 15-day season of festivities across Greater China and within Asian communities worldwide, seeing people celebrate with family, feasting, fireworks, and good fortune rituals shared. This Lunar New Year we celebrate the Year of the Dog; the sign of the Chinese Zodiac that represents all the best characteristics we look for in a Player 2: bravery, loyalty, trustworthiness – a true companion and friend.
At Xbox, we’re getting gamers excited about the Lunar New Year by taking the best traits of the Xbox universe and its beloved gaming characters and transforming these heroes into their canine alter egos! Xbox CosPups bring together the rich virtual worlds of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Sea of Thieves, Forza Motosport, Gears of War, Halo and some playful canine heroes to bring the Year of the Dog to life for our fans.
Brought to life through the work of world-renowned dog fashion designer Roberto Negrini of Bravo’s “Furry, Fierce and Fabulous,” each dog’s character outfit was created with craft, care and a passion for the games they represent.
Introducing Master Chihuahua, Sea of Fleas, Mutt-cus Fenix, Fur-za…and the tiny but mighty, PUG-G – We’re bringing the best of man’s best friend, to wish you good gaming and all the best fortune for Lunar New Year 2018!
To our gamers in Greater China and across the globe, Gong Xi Fat Cai (Happy Lunar New Year)!
