Guard: Your Tauntaun will freeze before you reach the first marker!
Han Solo: Then I’ll see you in Hell!
As part of EA’s E3 Press Conference, DICE gave us our first look at Star Wars: Battlefront in action by returning to the ice planet Hoth, one of the most recognizable locales in the Star Wars galaxy. I’ve lost track of how many games include a level that takes place during the Battle of Hoth, but Star Wars: Battlefront is definitely one of the most interesting. The trailer whips back-and-forth between the Rebel perspective and that of the Empire, giving viewers a complete view of the battlefield. The ice is littered with Snowspeeders, TIE Fighters, X-Wings, AT-STs, and a menacing AT-AT… which is made all the more menacing by the appearance of Darth Vader.
There’s no rampaging Wampas (yet), but its all fairly epic in scope. But to increase the epicness a tad, the trailer ends with Luke Skywalker (in his Return of the Jedi costume) going Lightsaber-to-Lightsaber with Vader in the middle of the battlefield. It’s definitely non-canon, but it works.
Star Wars: Battlefront will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 17.
