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.
