EA’s Star Wars Battlefront 2 has come out with another free update. With this update, which dropped today, we get a new villain: General Grievous.
General Grievous is a formidable enemy. Although Grievous does not have any force abilities, he makes up for that in raw power. He towers over the other villains as he is meant to have a menacing appearance.
Grievous has a base attack where he will swing with a powerful stroke with two lightsabers. Grievous can also deflect blaster bolts in the same way with his two sabers.
The abilities are the following:
- Thrust Surge – EA stated, “This one was referenced from an encounter between Grievous and Obi-Wan in the Clone Wars series. The attack thrusts Grievous forward with all four lightsabers in a stabbing motion, dealing damage and throwing the target to the ground.”
- Unrelenting Advance – This is the signature move seen in Star Wars episode III. Grievous forms a spinning lightsaber wall in front of him, with spark animations flying off the floor. As he moves forward he both deflects blaster bolts in front of him and cut down any enemy in front of him.
- Claw Rush Ability – When activated Grievous will go down on all six limbs and rush forward. The rush is great for getting away from bad situations, but it also deals damage to anyone who stands in his way.
In the video below you can watch some of the gameplay, abilities, star cards, and emotes all in action.
