showcased Anakin Skywalker better known as Darth Vader. The Sith Lord is among the playable hero/villain characters in the upcoming game. Darth Vader is one of the most powerful wielders of the force within the Star Wars Universe and based on the overview of his abilities, he remains to be a force to be reckoned with.

Aside from the mentioned abilities above, the Sith Lord can also perform ranged attacks by using his powerful lightsaber to incise or throw towards his enemies. His iconic Force Choke is also one of the highlights of his abilities wherein he can choke an enemy using the force that weakens them in the process. It was also noted that although his abilities are customizable with Star Cards, his lightsaber will remain as one of the most feared red light in the battlefield as it can "effortlessly" cut down all opponents within his reach.
Darth Vader dominates the top spot of IGN's list of the top 100 villains of all time, he is also listed by the American Film Institute as the third greatest movie villain of all time. He is also going to be one of the most powerful characters in the upcoming Stars Battlefront II, to sum it all up, it would be wise to follow what he advised to his son Luke Skywalker in Episode Vi: Return of the Jedi, "Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends." Stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
