In a post on the game’s official forums, EA posted additional details about Grievous, including a description, abilities, appearances, voice lines and more.

“General Grievous inspired fear across the galaxy as the leader of the Confederacy of Independent Systems’ droid army”, EA writes. “Always the strategist, Grievous made it a habit of escaping the clutches of the pursuing Jedi. Only after countless battles against Obi-Wan Kenobi, did Grievous’ ruthless warmongering for invading worlds and engaging Jedi in combat, come to an end.”

“The drums of conflict are my beating heart. The fire of conquest rages through my veins. Strong, young lungs breathe in air laden with enemies turned into ashes. It is here that I thrive. I have toppled nations. I have slain kings. I have murdered legends. My name has been feared by warriors… and cursed by widows.” – General Grievous, The Clone Wars: The Dreams of General Grievous
