Having pursued the Marcus Fenix role in the Gears of War movie for some time, wrestler turned actor Dave Bautista will partially be getting his wish as he'll be joining Gears 5 as a playable character later this month. Try as he might, Bautista has yet to be welcomed onto the game's film-related project, though I suppose appearing as a character in GEARS 5 is the next best thing, right? "The iconic attitude of WWE's Batista will be incorporated into "Gears 5" as a multiplayer skin, allowing both Gears and wrestling fans alike to jump into the action as Batista across all multiplayer modes including Horde, Versus and Escape". Xbox also says they've partnered with WWE to create a special countdown to his availability in the game, including behind-the-scenes videos on Xavier Woods' UpUpDownDown gaming channel ahead of Clash of Champions.

It hasn't yet been revealed what abilities he'll bring to the table, nor whether his inclusion in the game will be a priced, long-term download or a timed event. "@XBox @GearsofWar #DreamChaser", he wrote in the tweet, which includes a teaser trailer that you can see below. Bautista announced his arrival as part of the highly-anticipated video game on Tuesday when he shared a brief entrance video to his personal Twitter account.
