Darth Tyranus Update Now Live in Star Wars Battlefront II

The Darth Tyranus update is now live in Star Wars Battlefront II, which means Count Dooku is now part of the game’s roster. This update also brings Geonosis to the Heroes vs. Villains, Blast, and Custom Arcade game modes. A new trailer showcasing Dooku in action can be viewed above.

About Count Dooku

Once an apprentice of Master Yoda, Count Dooku turned his back on the Jedi Order with a thirst for more power, assuming his Sith identity, Darth Tyranus. Serving the dark side, he supervised the creation of the clone army on Kamino, trained General Grievous in the art of lightsaber combat, and educated the Dathomirian Asajj Ventress in his teachings.

At the dawn of the Clone Wars, Count Dooku dueled his old Jedi Master on Geonosis after defeating Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker (coming to Star Wars Battlefront II next month) – single-handedly. 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:

Undoubtedly an experienced and skilled duelist, Count Dooku engaged in combat with elegance. He wielded his signature red lightsaber emitting from a curved hilt, allowing him to fight with refined accuracy.

These qualities of sophistication and power are what we’re bringing to life with the Sith Lord entering Star Wars Battlefront II.
