He desperately wanted to play Marcus Fenix in the much-delayed-totally-going-to-happen Gears of War movie, but that’s not happening, so, instead, Dave Bautista gets his own Gears 5 skin. Get it for free, now!
With his inclusion announced earlier in the month, Bautista has now been added as a free character skin for Marcus Fenix, except it’s called Batista (as he was known in the WWE). You’ll find it in the character customisation menu in Gears 5 multiplayer. It’s free for Xbox One and PC players alike, but will only be available until 28 October 2019. So, you best get on that.
Besides getting to look like Bautista, there are also over 700 new voice lines to enjoy while cutting a bloody swathe through your enemies.
If you don’t know who Dave Bautista is, I have to wonder where you’ve been, but he’s a retired WWE wrestler who’s moved on to acting. You probably know him from his role as Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy films.
