Star Wars Shatterpoint: General Grevious expansion pack announced

10 April 2023  |  Darth Maul

General Grievous was a cyborg and the commander of the Separatist Droid Army during the Clone Wars, which is set in the Star Wars prequel era. He was originally a Kaleesh warrior named Qymaen jai Sheelal who was trained in the martial arts and known for his skill in combat. However, he suffered severe injuries in a shuttle crash orchestrated by the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, who then turned him into a cyborg to serve as his enforcer.

As a cyborg, General Grievous is a towering humanoid figure with a skeletal structure encased in a robotic exoskeleton. He has four arms, each armed with a unique weapon, and he is capable of incredible speed and agility. Grievous is also a strategic mastermind and a ruthless military commander, leading the Separatist forces against the Jedi and the Galactic Republic in their conflict during the Clone Wars.

General Grievous is best known for his iconic weapon of choice, four lightsabers which he wields simultaneously in combat, making him a formidable opponent even against Jedi Knights. He has a penchant for collecting lightsabers from fallen Jedi, which he keeps as trophies. Despite his fearsome reputation, Grievous has a weakness for coughing fits due to his damaged respiratory system, which is a result of his injuries.

Throughout the Clone Wars, General Grievous engages in numerous battles with the Jedi, often escaping capture and leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. However, he ultimately meets his fate in "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" when he faces off against Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Grievous is defeated and killed by Kenobi, marking the end of his reign as a feared antagonist in the Star Wars saga.

Now General Grievous will be available for Star Wars Shatterpoint, in the General Grievous Squad Pack "Appetite for Destruction"
