Star Wars: The Old Republic takes a trip to Hoth

Click to warm yourself with some hot new screenshots.
It was inevitable, right? You can't have a Star Wars game without a Hoth level and Star Wars: The Old Republic will indeed feature the Tauntaun-able tundras that permeate the ice planet. The news comes via the game's site, which points out the planet's storied history of conflict. Years before the Empire and the Rebel Alliance were duking it out there in The Empire Strikes Back -- which turns 30 today -- the Republic and Imperial forces clashed during The Great War.

Feel free to take a virtual tour of the planet in our gallery below. If you'd like to know more, check out its profile page on the SWTOR site.

[Thanks, Justin]
