Star Wars Battlefront Hoth gameplay is snow-body's business

Star Wars Battlefront is still in closed alpha, so you're not technically supposed to upload sumptuous, 1080p, 60 frames-per-second gameplay clips of it. However, if somebody just happened to post a video of Hoth's Walker Assault Mode to YouTube, and I just happened to embed it here, you could, you know, watch it.

This is the same map and mode that was playable back at E3 2015. I tried out a match on the Rebel side, and I had a great time rushing for the Snow Speeder tokens and repeatedly failing to hogtie an AT-AT - just like the Hoth level in Shadows of the Empire, but with 39 more players and 10 jillion more polygons. Echo Base aside, I can't wait to try the Battle of Jakku, which shows you just how that Star Destroyer ended up smashed in the desert in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
