“Guardians of the Galaxy” star Dave Bautista has often been cited as the perfect candidate to star in a “Gears of War” movie. Now, he’s coming to the game itself.
Bautista took to Twitter this morning to reveal that his wrestling persona ‘Batista’ will join the upcoming fifth installment of the game series, “Gears 5,” as a new playable character starting September 15th after WWE’s “Clash of Champions”.
The third-person sci-fi action shooter game will follow Kait Diaz, an Outsider of Locust descent who must set out on a journey to discover the origins of both her family and the Locust race in order to wipe out a new threat to humanity.
She will be aided by original franchise protagonist Marcus Fenix as well as his son JD Fenix and his friend Delmont Walker. “Gears 5” is set to hit shelves for PC and the Xbox One Tuesday, September 10th.
