WWE and Marvel’s Batista Is a Free Playable Character in Gears 5

Posted September 4, 2019 by Richard Lee Breslin in DLC, Gameplay, Gaming News, PC, Trailers, Xbox One

Dave Bautista, WWE Legend and star as Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, has been campaigning for a Gears of War movie and for him to play as the leading star for years.  Unfortunately, while there have been some rumblings and rumours, there are no clear signs indicating that the movie will happen anytime soon.

However, big Dave has got pretty much the next best thing, as Bautista is going to be a playable character in Gears 5.  Bautista will be a playable character for the Gears 5 multiplayer modes and he has recorded more than 700 lines for the game, and will be available to download for free between September 15th and October 28th, so you have plenty of time to get Big Dave in your game.

Gears 5 will release for Xbox One and Windows PC on September 10th or four days early for those that pre-order the Ultimate Edition or subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
