A promotional image shows the three members of The New Day decked out in Cog armor ready to take on Locust.

“After playing @GearsOfWar for years (& reading the books) I’m happy to announce that myself, [Kofi Kingston], and [Big E] somehow convinced them [to] make us playable DLC characters in #Gears5,” Woods tweeted.
