Dave Bautista Joins Gears 5

WWE superstar Dave Bautista will be joining as a multiplayer character for Gears 5 on September 15, 2019.

For long, fans have been petitioning for Hollywood megastar Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy, Spectre) to be included in Gears of War live-action movie adaptation that has been under development for many years.

Now that the third-person shooter game series is returning with upcoming mainline title Gears 5, this former WWE superstar is joining as a playable character from September 15, 2019, after WWE pay-per-view event Clash of Champions.

Dave Bautista will be joining for multiplayer mode of Gears 5 as part of a promotion for WWE and game director Rod Fergusson was in charge of his overall performance and recording more than seven hundred lines for this role.

Although Universal Pictures still working on a Gears of War movie, developer studio The Coalition wanted to put Bautista in shoes of Marcus Fenix wearing his iconic COG armor, which has remained a dream role for him to play.

Most of his lines were inspired from Marcus' script but his voice performance reflected largely on "The Animal" persona of his. His character will be wearing a pair of signature Hollywood shades when stomping into enemy Swarms.

Purchasing any version of Gears 5 including Xbox Game Pass membership will unlock Bautista on September 15. WWE has partnered up with Xbox for a special countdown for him to be available in-game and this promotion will run until October 28.
