EA gives details on Count Dooku’s playstyle in Star Wars Battlefront II


From EA:

“The ex-Jedi turned menacing Sith lord, Count Dooku*, is striding confidently right into Star Wars Battlefront™ II on January 23 in the Darth Tyranus Update**.

Geonosis – a Clone Wars battlefront which was brought to Galactic Assault in November – is now coming to the game modes Blast, Heroes vs. Villains, and Custom Arcade.

Here’s everything you need to know about the latest update. […]

We made an audio preview of the banter between Dooku and Anakin available in our interview with the voice actors Corey Burton and Matt Lanter, and here’s another one for good measure:

[…] Count Dooku’s melee attacks are highly lethal and he’s able to deflect opposing lightsabers with great efficiency. This is signified by a wider blocking range and less stamina depletion compared to other heroes. It comes at a cost, however, with Dooku lacking in his capability to deflect blaster shots.

Looking at his special Abilities, Dooku unleashes the Lightning Stun to throw enemies within range to the ground, inflicting harm, and leaving them in the open to follow-up attacks.

The Expose Weakness Ability, on the other hand, influences the target with slower movement and an increased amount of damage taken from Dooku and his allies. If Dooku eliminates the target personally by delivering a final blow, this Ability recharges immediately.

Activating the Duelist Ability showcases the true grace of Dooku’s skillset when it comes to lightsaber combat. The Ability changes up his attack sequence, with Dooku performing quick slashes – one hand on his back – with a high damage output.

Count Dooku himself will arrive with his default Sith Lord outfit, donning a brown cape, and the Dark Ritual Appearance*** will be available to unlock on January 30.

We believe that the Dark Ritual Appearance will appeal a little extra to fans of The Clone Wars, as it originates from the sixth season, The Lost Missions, of the animated series.

Another, yet to be announced, Appearance for Count Dooku is set to arrive later in February.

We’re also happy to announce that Geonosis will be added to the Heroes vs. Villains, Blast, and Custom Arcade game modes as part of our January update. Set in the Geonosian canyons, you can now enjoy fighting on the barren world in the smaller, more focused game modes. […]”

From EA:


  • “Count Dooku of Serenno, at your service.”
  • “It is obvious that this contest cannot be decided by our knowledge of the Force… but by our skills with a lightsaber.”
  • “Hope is something we cannot allow our enemy to possess.”
  • “I did not bring you here to flit about like some Toydarian.”
  • “I would have thought you had learned your lesson.”
  • “Tell me what you want and I will show you how the dark side can help you achieve it.”
  • “Ignorance of the Force will not save you from it.” […]”
