Rooster Teeth’s “gen:LOCK” season one coming to digital platforms July 9 and DVD and Blu-Ray this October
An all-star voice cast?
In a story involving mechs and robots and stuff?
Made by the same company that produces the Red vs. Blue web series?
If any of the above appeals to you (come on, Michael B. Jordan, David Tennant, and mechs? Who doesn’t that appeal to?), then you might want to check out Rooster Teeth’s gen:LOCK, which hits digital platforms tomorrow and physical media later this fall. With the recent announcement that DC Comics would be producing a gen:LOCK comics series, now’s as good a time as any to dive into this franchise.
