In the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II, players can once again don the cap and mask of the iconic villain Darth Vader. Today, EA has detailed the powers and abilities players can expect to find in the upcoming shooter.

Speaking on the PlayStation Blog, Jared Petty – Social Content Editor for EA – promised players that they will “wield the full arsenal” of Darth Vader’s powers in Battlefront II. According to Petty, Vader is able to periodically increase his durability and his damage output by calling upon his rage. More details on the powers from the Sith Lord below:

Vader can also attack at range with his lightsaber with a powerful throw, sending the red blade of energy scything through enemy ranks and then returning it to his hand. This allows him to make potent strikes at a distance.

And of course, Darth Vader wields his iconic Force choke, punishing his enemies with a telekinetic attack that lifts them off the ground as it weakens them. The crushing grip of the Sith Lord holds victims in the air, then drops his enemies at a place of his choosing (like a nearby cliff).

Players can also customize Vader’s abilities with Star Cards to suit their play style. Regardless of the configuration you choose, you’ll be delighted by Darth Vader’s ability to effortlessly cut down opponents within reach of his lightsaber, and impressed with his durability.

Star Wars Battlefront II worldwide on November 17 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
