The Electronic Arts Twitter account has finally confirmed what we suspected all along: Chewbacca is coming to Star Wars Battlefront II‘s multiplayer.
As with previous heroes, Chewbacca’s Twitter announcement post included a gameplay video teasing his moves and equipment. His unique arsenal is comprised of a Shock Grenade to disable enemies in an area, a Furious Bowcaster ability that gives his Bowcaster heightened accuracy, and a Charge Slam maneuver that knocks enemies to the ground.

Chewbacca brings the full list of confirmed hero/villain characters up to 12, following the recent confirmation of Lando Calrissian. Hero confirmations have been appearing consistent with a leak that surfaced earlier this year, suggesting that reveals of Leia and Grievous are also in our future.
Star Wars Battlefront II is slated to launch November 17th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For all we know about the game, check out EGM’s complete guide to Battlefront II.
