Dave Bautista Will Be Playable in Gears 5 Later This Month

Dave Bautista has long-talked about wanting to star in a Gears of War movie ... and now he's taken the first step in making it happen by appearing in the next game.

Xbox has partnered with WWE to create a special countdown to Batista's availability in the game, including behind-the-scenes with Gears 5 and Batista on WWE's UpUpDownDown gaming channel.

Highly anticipated: If you're an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, early access to Gears 5 opens up this Friday-everyone else will have to wait until September 10.

"It's about f*cking time", Batista said in the short clip to tease the fact that he'll be featured in the new game. It's part of a collaboration between Microsoft and the WWE, and the character can be unlocked from Sunday 15th September just by playing the PC or Xbox One version between that date and October 28.

Gears 5's developer The Coalition later clarified with The Bleacher Report that he would be available for play via a multiplayer skin, across most all of the game's different multiplayer modes like Versus, Escape and Horde Mode.

The news also came with a live action teaser trailer showing Bautista in the game's trademark COG armor.

Not long after Bautista teased his GEARS 5 role, The Coalition's studio head Rod Fergusson retweeted the announcement, adding that Bautista was "really fun to work with in the VO booth".
