Gears 5 is Getting More Classic, Evil, and Terminator Dark Fate Characters Starting Today

Are Gears 5 fans interested in checking out some new characters? There’s six coming in hot, and they’re going to be available today. These new Operation 1 characters are COG Gear, DeeBee, the Warden, and General RAAM.

Here’s what we know about the upcoming heroes and villains coming to the game:
