Gears 5 Terminator Character Pack - Sarah Connor, T-800, Release Date

Skynet has infiltrated Gears 5. Here’s what you need to know about the Gears 5 Terminator Character Pack.

Of all the announcements at Microsoft’s Xbox E3 2019 Press Conference, the reveal of a Terminator pack for Gears 5 was perhaps the weirdest. On paper though, the hulking, murderous machines from the Terminator film franchise fit fairly well into the Gears universe. Messaging around the Gears 5 Terminator Character Pack has been a little confusing thus far, so to set the record straight we’ve put together this Gears 5 Terminator Guide. We’ll take a look at the Gears 5 Terminator Dark Fate Release Date, and what is included. We’ll also look at what you’ll need to do to download it on launch day.

Gears 5 Terminator

To celebrate the release of Terminator: Dark Fate, publisher Skydance has partnered with Microsoft on an exclusive content pack for Gears 5. It will add two characters to the game, and will be available at the game’s launch. Let’s take a look at some more info.

Gears 5 Terminator DLC Release Date

The Terminator Dark Fate Character Pack will be available when Gears 5 launches on September 10. Game Pass users can pick up the DLC anytime before September 16, by just downloading Gears 5. Similarly, players can pick up the Terminator DLC by pre-ordering any version of Gears 5.

Gears 5 Sarah Connor

As part of the Gears 5 Terminator Character Pack, two new characters will be added into the game. The first is Terminator legend Sarah Connor, with Linda Hamilton providing her likeness. Sarah Connor will available in select multiplayer modes from September 10.
