Back to Geonosis: EA Star Wars Releases Battlefront II Community Update

Obi-Wan Kenobi, New Vehicles, and General Grievous Headline New Iteration

Battlefront II fans, rejoice. It’s Community Update, time:

EA’s Dennis Brannvvall gave out the deets via video:

In addition to the brand-new location of Geonosis, the update will introduce Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. the 212th Attack Battalion, the AT-TE, the STAP, and the BARC speeder. And with the update, we’re also giving you the opportunity to unlock another appearance for General Grievous.

The trailer has me — a non-gamer — ready to head to the store to get this game and start my own adventures. And the inclusion of Kenobi makes it a veritable lock for Battlefront II to finally make it to my home.

“Throughout the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi commanded the 212th Attack Battalion,” explained Brannvvall. “Now, they’re coming to the game as ‘appearances’ for the Galatic Republic.”

Sounds good to me, but check out the “Star Wars Show” for James Arnold Taylor — the voice of Obi-Wan for Battlefront II (among many other Star Wars projects) — and his thoughts on the subject:

And for an in-depth review of the Geonosis map, I defer to Hello Greedo, who had a very favorable opinion of the map:

My favorite line from the review: “All of my worries were quickly squashed like a bug…”
