Footage from the closed alpha build of Star Wars: Battlefront has leaked, showing 10 glorious minutes of the Empire’s assault on the Rebel’s secret base on the ice planet of Hoth. The alpha testing, which began back in July and had thousands of applicants, was opened up to a few lucky EA Origin users in preparation for the game’s full release on 17th November.

The footage shows the 20 vs 20 Walker Assault on Hoth; Imperial Snowtroopers, flanked by hulking AT-ATs and Imperial probe droids, with TIE fighters swooping overhead, storm across snowfields towards the rebel base. We get a thorough look at the detailed map – full of snowy mountains, turrets, and trenches – and the soldier’s equipment during the fast-paced battle, including blasters and jetpacks.

Both Rebel and Imperial perspectives are showcased, and we even follow Snowtroopers as they enter the base through its large hanger bay. Sadly absent is the sight of a Snowspeeder taking down an Imperial walker with its grappling line, but we do get a glimpse of the level’s objectives, which includes taking out the Rebel communications uplink.

EA and DICE are planning to launch the beta version of Star Wars: Battlefront for testing through Origin in early October.
