The Battle of Geonosis in Star Wars Battlefront 2 looks better than in the film!

You Kenobi serious.

Here's a first proper look at Obi-Wan Kenobi and the planet of Geonosis ahead of their arrival in Star Wars Battlefront 2 next Wednesday, 28th November.

Geonosis is the planet where the battle takes place at the end of Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones, the one with loads of Jedi in it. That was really exciting at the time - we hadn't seen Jedi fight in those numbers before. It's also where Count Dooku chops Anakin's hand off (planting a seed of inspiration for later life) and old bogey-face Yoda wades in, jumping and spinning an awful lot. That was also quite exciting - we hadn't seen him fight before.

That whole sequence from the film looks ropy now, because of the aging CGI. Actually, compare it to Star Wars Battlefront 2 and the game looks better!

Obi-Wan Kenobi's special moves are All-Out Push, which you can charge up for bigger spread; Defensive Rush, where he runs forward and damages enemies in front of him, a bit like Luke Skywalker; and Restrictive Mind Trick, where Kenobi disables the abilities of all enemies in front of him (within range), which sounds useful.

You can read about Obi-Wan's star cards and his abilities in more detail on the Star Wars Battlefront website.

More importantly, Kenobi's voice lines include, "Why do I get the feeling you're going to be the death of me?" which I remember from the film, and, "When I cut you in half, I should have aimed for your neck instead," which sounds like a new line aimed at Darth Maul.

Obi-Wan's Battlefront debut comes ahead of other Attack of the Clones icons Count Dooku, in January, and Anakin Skywalker, in February.
