The Clone Wars and its most beloved heroes are coming to “Star Wars Battlefront II,” EA DICE announced today. Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku, and the sinister General Grievous have all been confirmed as playable characters.
An upcoming season of “Battlefront II” will focus heavily on the fan-favorite era, which takes place in between the live-action films “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith.” The conflict was also the setting for the wildly popular animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” which aired on Cartoon Network and then Netflix beginning in 2008.
DICE will also be adding the planet Geonosis, the world where the Clone Wars began. The developer describes it as “the largest level we have ever built” for the series.
“Battlefront II’s” second season, centered around the character of Han Solo, began on May 16 and has since been updated with content from the film “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
Among the other games being shown are BioWare’s “Anthem” and the recently announced “Battlefield V.”
