For Chinese university students, summer means two things: holidays and/or graduation! To celebrate their graduation and their friendship a group of graduating students got together to cosplay their favourite characters from the first person shooter Cross Fire.
This group of students, eight in number, are part of the graduating class of 2013 at Hunan province’s Central South University. Having played CF together during their four years together they said they decided to get together to show off their love for CF.
Cross Fire is a first-person shooter developed by South Korea’s SmileGate. It was shut down in Korea in 2012 but still operates in China. In China the game has a cult following akin to that of Counter-Strike. There is currently a version available to play in the US.
