VideoGamer's Hoth Exclusive

Ah, the pun just kills me. has an exclusive reveal of The Old Republic's next planet: Hoth. This includes a short description of the state of the planet during the period of the game (like what players might get to fight on the normally desolate world) as well as concept art and screenshots. Here's an excerpt:
In The Old Republic, Hoth has no allegiance, no government, is contested by players from both factions, has frozen desolate wasteland terrain and is littered with wreckage from a major battle of what's called the Great War.

According to Star Wars lore, Hoth was of no real interest to the Republic until it became the site of a devastating military defeat. At the height of the Great War, Republic and Imperial fleets clashed in the Hoth system in a decisive battle which saw the destruction of some of the most advanced and powerful starships in the galaxy.
So according to the article the opposing faction is there, as well as mercenaries with an army of droids. So I assume that players get to fight those, and wampas presumably.

For more on the planet check out the Wookieepedia page on Hoth. And I take it that tomorrow's Friday update will include A HoloNet page for Hoth as well.

Thanks to Darth Hater for the link to the article.
