E3 2018 feels like an eternity ago, as does Electronic Arts' own EA Play event. Among the items teased during EA's press conference was new updates for Star Wars Battlefront II and one of those promised updates looks to be coming in the month of October.

On Tuesday, the folks at DICE updated their community calendar for Battlefront II. In addition to numerous events, like a special Halloween Event and Fast Spawn event, DICE has also confirmed that General Grievous will come to the game as a playable Hero character.

General Grievous is a continuation of Battlefront II's continued focus on the Clone Wars and the Star Wars prequel trilogy. July saw the debut of a new Starfighter mode, while September saw some revamps to the game's Squad System. DICE appears to be following their roadmap, which will see Obi-Wan Kenobi and the Geonosis map debut in November, while Count Dooku and Anakin Skywalker join the playable Hero cast later in the Winter.

Look for more information on General Grievous to hit in the coming weeks, leading up to the Clone Wars villain's debut later in the month.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
