How to Get the Terminator T-800 in Gears 5

Gears 5 6 (1)

Thanks to a partnership between Xbox, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media, two characters from the film Terminator Dark Fate are playable in Gears 5.

Both Sarah Connor and Terminator T-800 are usable in Gears 5‘s multiplayer modes such as Horde and Versus. And strangely, they fit right in.

If you don’t act quickly though, you might never be able to play as them.


To be able to play as the Terminator T-800 or Sarah Connor, you need to either to download and play Gears 5 via Xbox Game Pass before 16th September, or pre-order any version of the game. Once one of those conditions is met, you’ll find them both in the character select screen when you begin to play.

While there may be ways to unlock Sarah Connor and Terminator T-800 for use after 16th September, nothing is known about it at this time. So, if you want to play as either of them, pick up Gears 5 sooner rather than later.
