General Grievous Release Date is Finally Here

General Grievous date on Battle Front 2 is Oct 30! Star Wars fanatics are excited for the upcoming release of General Grievous. Electronic Arts have been dishing out additional updates for the BattleFront universe making the game the best game for your buck. However, with this year's updates such as the Clone Wars, Solo and the DeathStar, there has yet been disappointment.

A Closer Look at General Grievous

General Grievous is a ruthless Commander that will do anything to destroy Jedi Knights in his path. Also, this ultimate droid Supreme Commander was taught the art of the lightsaber by Count Duku. Additionally, the evil droid led countless attacks against the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. However, his run-ins with Obi-Wan seemed to be his most challenging battles.

General Grievous in Battlefront 2 Features

Grevous towers above his opponents while armed with up to four lightsabers. Moreover, in Battle Front, he is armed with more than just weapons but signature moves that crush obstacle in his way.

Thrust Surge

Grevious thrust towards his opponent with four lightsabers. He takes his sabers and moves in stabbing motion ultimately throwing his opponents to the ground.

Unrelenting Advance

The evil droid has the ability to throw his sabers in front of him creating a protective wall. Almost next to nothing can break through the wall of spinning lightsabers. He uses this to advance forward bulldozing everything in his path.

Claw Rush

The Claw Rush move is what Grievous uses to escape quickly. The droid commander moves to all fours enabling him to move fast and push opponents out of his path.

Different Skins

General: Grievous generally appears as his Jedi Hunter appearance. Exactly how we are used to seeing him in the movies.

Warrior: The warrior look is battle damages and scarred by violent combat. Scars left behind from defeating battles with Obi-Wan.
