A Jedi Master and hero joins Star Wars: Battlefront II
Obi-Wan Kenobi is a master of defensive lightsaber combat and usage of the Force, he was also a constant thorn in General Grievous’ side. Obi-Wan Kenobi is modelled after Ewan McGregor’s portrayal in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.
Obi-Wan will be wielding his trademark blue lightsaber, and reflecting his mastery of defensive combat, Obi-Wan’s blocking skills are superior to any other Jedi in the game. His stamina and near perfect defense are joined by powerful, chained melee attacks including the Defensive Rush Ability, where Obi-Wan rushes forward while swinging his lightsaber, deflecting blaster shots with flawless accuracy and damaging enemies in front of him. When this Ability is active, the player can choose to deliver a final strike at any time.
