The Star Wars prequel movies have one of the most passionate fansbases out there, which made bringing Clone Wars content to Star Wars Battlefront II a good idea, and recruiting voice actors from the franchise’s venerable Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series a great idea.
According to an announcement post on the official Battlefront II blog, Clone Wars‘ Obi-Wan Kenobi voice actor James Arnold Taylor and Anakin Skywalker voice actor Matt Lanter will reprise their respective roles in Battlefront II‘s upcoming Clone Wars content season. The same goes for voice actors Matthew Wood and Corey Burton, who will take on their respective roles as General Grievous and Count Dooku.
The release of these four hero characters will be spaced out over the next few months, with Grievous launching October 30th, Obi-Wan Kenobi coming sometime in November, Count Dooku in January, and Anakin Skywalker in February. In addition to their confirmations, the blog post features comments from each voice actor detailing their thoughts on playing these roles. Full interviews with each voice actor will also launch alongside their in-game characters.
Like the heroes, Star Wars Battlefront II‘s season of Clone Wars content kicks off at the end of this month and runs through February 2019. Fans can check out the full spread of content coming to the game in its recently revealed content roadmap.
