Obi-Wan Kenobi Joins Star Wars Battlefront II This Week

by Christine Marie Attardo

There are many mixed opinions when it comes to Star Wars Battlefront IIbut I have found this game to be one of the most enjoyable experiences on the PS4. Despite the controversy of loot boxes, many hours have been spent wielding a light saber, and this week is about to make that all the more fun.

While I am normally a fan of playing on the Dark Side as Darth Maul, I am thrilled to report that Obi-Wan Kenobi will be joining the ranks.

Here are some details about his character from Polygon:

The good ol’ Jedi Mind Trick is among Obi-Wan’s complement of abilities; when used, a target’s own abilities are disrupted for a short time, including their dodges. Known more for his defense mastery, Kenobi’s blocking is superior to all other Jedi heroes, and it can be used for offense too. The “Defensive Rush” ability pushes him forward, redirecting blaster fire at enemies with his whirling lightsaber.

I think this is a long time coming, as he is one of the most iconic Star Wars characters in existence. I look forward to trying him out. I wasn’t too thrilled with the way General Grievous turned out. Perhaps it’s just my play style, but I found him to be a little sloppy. His hacking cough and spider crawl are pretty entertaining, though. Obi-Wan Kenobi releases this Wednesday, November 28th, 2018.
