EA has released the latest update to Star Wars Battlefront 2 that brings Obi-Wan Kenobi into the game as the battle travels to the iconic Clone Wars location of Geonosis. Players will be able to pilot the "beastly AT-TE walker" throughout the fight as part of the 212th Attack Battalion. In addition, players can "roam the fields with the STAP and the BARC speeder".
Enter the Large-Scale Battle on Geonosis
Known as the setting of the first major Clone Wars conflict, a game of Galactic Assault on Geonosis will put players in the middle of a raging battle between the clone troopers of the Galactic Republic and the Separatist droid army.
Starting in a rugged canyon with swarms of the native Geonosians whizzing above, the Galactic Republic must gain control of two objectives and call for reinforcements. If the Separatists are unable to halt their efforts, the battle turns into open warfare on the expansive, barren grounds.
Here, Republic Carriers swoop in to drop AT-TE walkers on the surface, and the clone troopers must use the heavy artillery to abolish two Separatist Hardcell transports. If successful, wild dust storms will set off and set the scene for a final stand.
In other happy news, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is also now part of EA's subscription service, EA Access.
