Wasn't easy to find it though, it was for a VERY brief moment.

Really cool! I hope it will be just the same as in the rogue squadron games, still a bit difficult but thats how i like it :)

Dont worry your self. In some preview it said that the Snow Speeders will be able to hold 2 people so im assuming one will drive and one will shoot the toe cable.:cool:

yes there will be 2 people one for the tow cable and one for the flying. i definitally want the tow cable not the intense fly around death legs and dogged fire:atat: all i got to do is sit around and fire the cable

I wonder if you only get one TOW cable or if they regenerate or something. Though shooting the TOW cable sounds like fun, it also sounds like it will be very difficult to aim accurately, when the Snowspeeder will be moving so fast and the legs of the AT-AT (i assume that's what your aiming for, as the AT-ST would be almost impossible becuase it is so much faster) are moving as well. But, i'm sure they'll do a good job in balancing it. :jawa :jawa

Remember what happened to Zak? He got fried, doing just that very thing. :p

I'm sure they'll get the balancing right. Everything else seems to be going very well, and they've got lots of time. I'm pretty sure they said they're close to finalising the content, and they're going to be spending months polishing and tweaking the game to ensure it's as solid as possible.

Anybody ever played ESB for the Atari 2600? No tow cables, just endless blasting at a never ending stream of AT-ATs:D

This should be a piece of cake compared to that!

lol, that's old school there.

Oldest SW game with a Hoth level that I played was Super Empire Strikes Back. I still have it :P

Well, you'll probably have another job. Maybe some kind of laser turret to shoot ground troops. Remember that the snowspeeder isn't just an anti-AT-AT vehicle.

-"SORRY PAL, YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO HOOF IT"
"COME ON! DON'T BE A ****! I SUK AT DRIVING"

Actually, you would fire the tow cable and the lasers. The backwards-facing guy is the gunner.

If you read that IGN hands-on article (I think it was IGN) the guy says how he had his gunner shoot a tow cable at a AT-AT. But then he crashed.
