Gears 5 is launching this September, and it looks like a lot of fun, especially when it comes to the "Escape Mode." However, if you're into acquiring collectibles, the following news should entice you. There is a lifesize Gears 5 "Lancer" weapon replica launching in September from the masters at PDP. It looks absolutely amazing and I just preorder one myself. Then again, a lot of writers at Windows Central are obsessed with the franchise!
Taking down the Swarm and Locust Horde requires a powerful weapon, and when you pull out the Crimson Lancer MK3 from your inventory, the enemy will flee in terror. This new lifesize replica weapon is more than a fancy mantelpiece. Each one includes a code for a matching in-game weapon skin. Make your friends jealous inside and outside of the game with this striking machine of mayhem. This special edition Lancer includes lights and sound effects that can be seen on the gun during use in the game. It also includes adjustable levers, triggers, and switches for an authentic cosplay experience. Need more ammunition? Open up the hinged chamber for simulated reloading, then peek through the scope to accurately take out the competition. This replica is a must-have for collectors and cosplayers alike.
If you want to own the Lancer replica, you'll have to spend $150. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with the game, but there are nifty in-game skins that are part of the package.
