Like you, we are waiting with cautious optimism about the upcoming Star Wars: Battle of Hoth tower defense game that we previewed in May.

Star Wars: The Battle for Hoth takes place on the snow covered planet of Hoth during the massive assault on the Rebel Base at the beginning of Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back. If you've seen the movie (and if you haven't you should really stop reading this and fix that) you probably can guess the objective of the game: Defending the shield generators from the Imperial forces.

THQ Wireless has announced that the game will finally launch on July 15th with an iPad version coming in August. The game will debut at $2.99.

    Good to hear from this game. I'm looking forward to it. I haven't played a Star Wars-themed game in ages... Maybe this one will fix that.

    Yeah! Will definitely purchase the iPad version. Still needing more screens and some video though. Haven't seen much. But it looks pretty good. Been a while since I've played a quality TD game.

    Wish it was RTS instead of TD, appstore has enough of them.

    I'm normally one to wait for the price drop to the good 'ol $0.99 but because of my love for Star Wars and my even greater love for Tower Defense games, I will be buying this as soon as it's available. Please let it be good!!

    2.99, not a bad price for some star wars. I'll be getting it.

    DACK: Right now I feel like I could take on the whole Empire myself!
    LUKE: I know what you mean.

    [Five minutes later, Dack is dead and Luke narrowly escapes getting stomped by a walking tank.]

    Good times!

    Hi all - I'm one of the developers of the game. Thanks for the kind comments - I hope we don't disappoint or I'll feed myself to the Wampa... I'll be tweeting a count down to launch on my twitter for the last 10 days prior to release http://twitter.com/arclightfire with an interesting Hoth link of the day.

    Thanks

      Hey this game is great...

      I'd love to see other Star Wars games..

      TD was a great idea though thats for sure, works great with Hoth

      I'd like to see some other style games... like maybe a RTS of Rebels vs Empire... with space elements... (flying craft and maybe space maps?) same graphic style could be used honestly

      or a single person... Fallout meets Star Wars or something
