Gears 5 is launching with a couple of pretty cool cross-promotional DLC, and what makes it great is the fact that it is totally free. Please take note that you cannot just grab a copy of the game from the used bin a few years from now and load it up.
Instead, you will have to follow some key steps in order to get the cool Terminator Dark Fate DLC. Here is a quick guide rundown of how to get the Terminator in Gears 5. The Terminator is not the only one that has featured in this DLC. If you are qualified, you will also get a Sarah Connor skin, as well as a couple of other bonuses. Everyone who is a fan of the long running series definitely want to get this. So, how to do so? Your only option is to pre-order the game. It is only free to those who pre-order the game digitally or through the retail. By doing so, you will get a code that you are able to enter to get the content. If you do not want to do that, there is an alternative way for you.
The game subscription server of Microsoft called Game Pass will also allow you to get the Terminator at no additional charge. All people who download and play Gears 5 on an active Game Pass subscription within the first week of release will get the Terminator Dark Fate DLC added for free. On the other words, you need to download and play the game before September 16th to qualify, so make sure to get it if you want the DLC.
That’s the method to get the Terminator in Gears 5. Once you have obtained the character, you should be able to change to him or Sarah Connor using the same method as the other ones. If you want to play solo in Story Mode in Gears 5, you are going to have to play as a certain character for each of the acts in the game. Changing the character depends on the Act and the Chapter. However, if you are playing well, you will have the option to pick either the main character, secondary one, or Jack/Dave.
If you want to change the character in versus, everything depends on which mode you are playing. If you select quickplay, pressing the X button on the Xbox controller once you are in the Quickplay menu will allow you to change your character immediately. From this stage, you are allowed to change your COG and Swarm characters. For everyone who is playing Ranked, you will have to change the characters during the matchmaking sequence. You can do so by pressing the A button when you have your character highlighted. If you want to choose your COG and Swarm character here, you can just press the Show X Character button located on the right side of the screen. To change your character in Hive, please start the matchmaking first.
