One lightsaber is awesome, but four is obviously better, right? Now we have the opportunity to try out quad-wielding for ourselves as the leader of the Separatist droid army, General Grievous, has been added to Star Wars Battlefront II as a download.

DICE writes that he is a powerhouse and that "activating his abilities at the right time will yield devastating results".

The studio continued by revealing that the design for this version "didn't come from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, but instead from Star Wars: The Clone Wars," and they describe Grievous fighting like this:

From a distance, Grievous can quickly enter the fight using his Thrust Surge ability. Upon joining the fray, Unrelenting Advance disorients and terrifies enemies, opening them up to attack from your squad mates. Then choose to stay and fight, or inflict further terror by activating Claw Rush and running away, leaving your enemies with the lasting image of a cyborg spider running at full speed. Every second will count, so be sure to plan wisely. Jedi (and other type of) scum won't stand a chance.

Next month, Obi-Wan Kenobi is set to land in the game, and that'll give you the opportunity to recreate their famous bout. What do you think of DICE's post-release support for Star Wars Battlefront II?
