Anakin Skywalker Drops Into Star Wars Battlefront II Next Week

DICE today revealed the first look at the Chosen One in Star Wars Battlefront II.

On February 27, players can hop into the shoes of Anakin Skywalker. The Chosen One arrives as a Light Side hero and brings an aggressive play style to the battlefield. Powerful and skillful, Anakin was one of the Clone Wars’ most notable heroes, leading his 501st Battalion to victory numerous times.

When Anakin deploys onto the Battlefront with a full legion of Star Cards, emotes, and voice lines to unlock. Players can also acquire as his Jedi Robes appearance from Revenge of the Sith. Unfortunately, like Obi-Wan, Grevious, and Dooku, you can’t just jump in and play with him. You’ll need 35,000 credits to unlock Anakin. Here are all his abilities:

  • Passionate Strike – Anakin unleashes a heavy strike, breaking his opponent’s guard and dealing high damage.
  • Heroic Impact – Anakin is more resistant to attack while holding the ability. When released, he pushes enemies away from him, the range and strength of his attack being multiplied by the damage he would typically be susceptible to.
  • Pull Dominance – Anakin pulls enemies in front of him to a center point, leaving them open for attacks.
  • Retribution – Anakin’s powers intensify whenever he and any nearby allies are attacked, building towards the ultimate punishment of a swift and inescapable grip seizing all enemies around him.

Star Wars Battlefront II is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Anakin Skywalker drops February 27.
