Dave Bautista Is Playable As Marcus Fenix In Gears 5 As Part Of Xbox Series X Launch

Many folks remember Dave Bautista either as the six-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Batista, or more recently as Drax the Destroyer in his recent exploits in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This time, the wrestler-turned-actor is hoping to also be remembered as Marcus Fenix from The Coalition’s Gears 5.

In an interesting new update, players on the Xbox Series X/S version of Gears 5 will be able to use Bautista’s likeness as a swappable skin for series’ main character Marcus Fenix. The update will also see a New Game+ mode coming to the game, as well as two new difficulty modes: the even more difficult ‘Inconceivable’, and the one-save ‘Ironman’ mode.

Interestingly, Bautista is already a playable character in the Gears 5 multiplayer, but this update is part of the game’s big “refresh” on 10 November, that updates and optimises its graphics and performance for Microsoft’s latest console.

In addition, IGN reports that Gears 5 will be getting new story DLC this December, called Hivebusters. As the title describes, this DLC, which is slated to last around “3-4 hours”, will focus on the squad who appears in the game’s Escape mode
