In lieu of the cancelled Star Wars RPG from Visceral Games, EA and DICE have continually added to Battlefront II's updates to fill galactic gap between releases. This has culminated in a variety of new characters including General Grievous, and more recently, Obi-Wan Kenobi from the prequels timeline. DICE says Obi-Wan's countenance from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith will be available on November 28, 2018 on all platforms.

Obi-Wan comes with three major abilities that highlight his prowess with the Force:

  • Defensive Rush - Obi-Wan reflects laser shots with his lightsaber while dashing forward.
  • Restrictive Mind Trick - Strategically interrupts and disrupts abilities.
  • All-out Push - A Force push that's more targeted and has long-range capabilities.

As with all major heroes, Obi-Wan will have multiple appearances that can be purchased with premium Crystals currency or earned in-game with credits.

"Our intention is to make him feel like the general we follow throughout the Clone Wars, where he commanded the 212th Attack Battalion - also coming to the game as Appearances for the Galactic Republic with the Battle of Geonosis update," DICE said in the update.
