BioWare has revealed that Hoth, the iconic ice planet of the Star Wars universe, will feature in its MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Hoth, of course, was the setting for the memorable opening scenes of the second Star Wars film, The Empire Strikes Back, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this week. Yes, you are that old.
In The Old Republic, the planet is an ungoverned wasteland contested by the Imperial and Republic factions. It's a starship graveyard, littered with wreckage from a major battle in the Great War.
Pirates are attempting to salvage the technology, which includes prototype ships, using an army of droids and mercenaries - but now the Republic and Empire are back to reclaim what's theirs.
