New Heroes & Villains Available for Gears 5 Multiplayer Modes Today

Microsoft has revealed four new heroes and villains coming to Gears 5 multiplayer, each packing their own unique abilities. Later in November, two more Terminator-themed characters will also join the roster.

As pictured above, the four characters are COG Gear, the DeeBee, the Warden and General RAAM, the ruthless Locust military leader. All four are available today and can be earned either through gameplay or in-game purchase.

To kick off the start of next month, launching in tandem with Terminator Dark Fate, characters Grave and the Terminator Rev-9 will be made available as a dual-pack costing $19.99.

Today’s news comes by way of a blog post, which details the character’s abilities across both Horde and Versus modes:

Each one brings powerful abilities to Versus Arcade to suit your playstyle; so whether your style favors the aggression of RAAM, the tactical advantage of the DeeBees or Grace’s explosive skillset, each new character offers a different way to flex your competitive muscle. In Escape and Horde, both the COG Gear and Grace bring new abilities and cards that will change how you build your team.
