It's been a long time coming, but I couldn't be happier that we're finally making Dave's dream to be in Gears of War a reality in Gears 5.

"It's about f*cking time", says Dave Bautista in a new promo for GEARS 5, an upcoming video game sequel that will feature the retired pro wrestler turned actor as a playable character. The Guardians of the Galaxy and Stuber star took to Twitter to make the announcement.

Dave Bautista has made no secret of the fact that he wants to star in a Gears of War movie. The video can be viewed via Bautista's initial tweet below.

Batista will be playable in Gears 5 from 15th September, following WWE Clash of Champions. Maybe. Maybe not. Either way, it's good fun for now. "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". So, a compromise: He'll appear as himself in Gears 5. "Batista was great in the booth and I can't wait for Gears and Batista fans alike to stomp some Swarm as The Animal".

The third-person sci-fi action shooter 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.
