Dave Bautista has declared himself a huge fan of the Gears of War series on many occasions. Recently, the famous wrestler and actor who appeared in films like Guardians of the Galaxy and Blade Runner 2019 did everything he could to get himself hired for the film adaptation, without success. Apparently, he can console himself in another way!
Bautista, in fact, has just announced on Twitter that he will become a playable character of Gears 5, a new chapter in the series about to arrive on Xbox One and PC. His debut, in any case, will take place a few days after the release of the game, or September 15, immediately after the WWE Clash of Champions 2019 event, now in its third edition. The announcement was also accompanied by a short teaser trailer showing Bautista, dressed as a real COG soldier while wearing glasses with a real gesture badass: “It’s almost time,” he says. You can admire it at the bottom of this news.
It has not been specified in which mode we will be able to play in his shoes, but almost certainly the competitive multiplayer will be included. Gears 5, remember, can be played on Xbox One and PC starting September 6th from all the players who have pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition and by Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. All others will have to wait until September 10th. In a few hours, starting at midnight, Ninja will play the Gears 5 campaign in live streaming on his Mixer channel.
A heavyweight addition to #Gears5. Batista is coming Sept 15.
