You can play the character of wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista in Gears 5 multiplayer. The character skin of “Batista” is available to everyone for free.
Select “Batista” by simply entering the character customization menu in Gears 5 multiplayer to unlock the skin. However, the availability of the skin is only for the Marcus Fenix character.
In Gears 5 multiplayer, more than 700 voice lines are there of Batista, and some of them are taken from his WWE character ‘The Animal” that he played in those matches.
“Adding Batista to Gears 5, we started with the fantasy of ‘Batista as Marcus,’ putting Batista into Marcus’ armor, and starting with Marcus’ script. Then we added elements of ‘The Animal’ Batista into his voice performance and onto his look by adding his signature Hollywood shades to his character,” The Coalition boss Rod Fergusson said in a statement. “Batista was great in the booth and I can’t wait for Gears and Batista fans alike to stomp some Swarm as The Animal.”
You only have a limited time to pick the Batista skin though it is free in Gears 5. Through October 28, the skin is available for everyone on PC and Xbox One.
Guardians of the Galaxy movie’s Drax played by Bautista publicly campaigned to portray Marcus Fenix in the Gears of War movie. Fergusson himself agrees that however, he has no role in casting decisions, but Bautista “would be awesome.” Besides that, the Marcus Fenix feature is still not guaranteed in the Gears of War movie.Leave a comment
