The Empire Strikes Back's Hoth battle recreated in Minecraft video

More Star Wars maps on the way.

Last November Youtube user ParadiseDecay created a spectacular Minecraft video re-enacting the famous Death Star trench run from Star Wars. Now, he's made the sequel, recreating the Hoth battle from The Empire Strikes Back.

It's an incredibly ambitious project and unlike George Lucas' actual series, no special effects or mods were used. "Its all vanilla 1.4 Minecraft," noted ParadiseDecay in the Hoth video comments section.

And for reference, here's the previous Star Wars video.

ParadiseDecay also created the fully-fledged playable Star Wars/Minecraft adventure mod entitled Rise of the Rebellion and the sequel, Rise of the Empire, is due this winter. Trailers below.
